I love the Ambrosia and it has become my new favorite espresso coffee I plan on continually ordering it. Tony knows first rate service and deserves the vote not only for his excellent coffee but first rate service. I had a problem where my coffee was sent to my old address and would be forwarded to late for my party which I needed the coffee for. Tony resolved it and sent another 2 pounds asap to the correct address at no cost to me. I have never in my life received such service and dealt with anyone who bent over backwards to resolve the issue. I was shocked that such service even existed in this day in age. Hat off to Tony and the Ambrosia. If you have not tried Tony's fresh roasted espresso or coffee and excellent service I suggest you do. Thanks everyone.

Bluebottle Coffee. Either my technique is improving or they have very forgiving coffee. The 100 % Yemen Sana'ani and the Espresso Temescal. Also Sweet Maria's roasted Moka Kadir and Espresso Monkey blends.

I also like the Metropolis. 2nd is Zoka's palladino.

EDIT: FWIW - I just received Daterra and Ambrosia on excellent recommendation from the poll here - I would give the nod to Ambrosia, but I still prefer Metropolis.

In order, Vivace, Victrola, Intelligensia, and Terroir.

Do Cafe Fresco coffees have robusta in them or are they straight up arabica?
