I got a Kenyan coffee from it through Fellow Drops. It is flat and harsh, not bright. Does not seem like a Kenyan coffee.

I've had some decent coffee from them. The roasts that I have had were closer to medium than light, but they didn't have any obvious roasting defects.

- My espresso: Swirled, not stirred. My pourover: Stirred, not swirled.

I've enjoyed visiting their shop in the past but some of the bags of coffee I picked up years ago weren't my preference.

I can't speak for all their coffee, but I've never had a bag from them I didn't enjoy. I don't love their pricing, but their blend The Answer is one of my favorite blends ever. The Truth is also good if you're looking for something light/bright on espresso.
