Will add to my ever growing list. Any thoughts on how well this will hold up in an Americano with cream, or a latte?

I latte'ed it and am still enjoying it. Probably not in an americano... It's 4 days old so I labeled it and tossed it in the freezer (tape over valve, inside ziplok bag). I have 3 in there now so will rotate and see who wins but I have a feeling this will. Yum! Soft! Hint of chocolaty! Very nice!!!

I stumbled upon Cimarron, while wandering through CO last year and have enjoyed several bags of Courthouse since. Consistent, quality roast and bean...and shipping is always prompt and without delay. Have been very pleased!

It's frozen now and I forgot to loosen the grind so I got a ristreto. Simply AWESOME! Many thanks to Ian for posting this one! Makes me not want to drink anything else.

This made me want to check it out. Brought up their website & sizes go from not quite 9 oz. to a little over 2 lbs. Disappointed with their sizes. A little less than 9 ounces of beans might help me to know if I liked/loved it enough to want to try the little over 2 pounder. Yet that is $40.

250 g is a very common size globally. It is around 13-14 shots.

Another common size is 100 g.
