I'm drinking the Black Buffalo blend this morning. A very decent cup. This is another medium roast. It seems to be one step below Blackbeard's Delight in that regard. Some acidity. Less aroma. My preference is still towards the Beyond Black. I have always favored a darker roast.

What brand French press is it? Thanks!
1. Sterling Pro 1L. 2. Starbucks thermos with built in French Press 0.5L (for portability).

I finished up my Black Buffalo this week and had ordered 3 bags of Beyond Black. It's slightly cheaper plus the darker roast suits my taste preference. If you have a iPhone, check the App Store for the BRCC app. It's free, plus when you first sign in a 15% discount is applied as a thanks for downloading the app. I noticed that the new batch of BB I ordered came from Tennessee versus Utah. The coffee was the same however. Their roast in time order process is very good.

I've been getting 2lb bags of beans off ebay. Tried 4 different kinds so far. None have been bad and much better that what I can get tin the grocery store. A little pricey but great aroma and flavor. Time to order some more. This was my last buy. Dark Brazil Cerrado Coffee, Whole Bean Coffee, Fresh Roasted Coffee LLC.

What were the other 3 you tried? Which one did you like best? While really good, my local roaster has become quite expensive ($28 for 2 lbs), plus it's a PITA to have to drive out to his shop to pick it up, so I'm starting to look for alternatives.

The beans look very oily in the picture. Is this how you got them?

I'm done with Black Rifle. Every time I purchase coffee a page pops up to send people their info and if they order anything, I get five bucks off on my next order. So far, three people ordered coffee and I get an e mail from Black Rifle with a code for a five dollar discount on my next order. Every time I try and redeem it I get You cart does not qualify for this code. Guess what guys? I want coffee. NOT a hoodie or a t shirt or a cup. Too bad. I really liked the Just Black and Death Punch.

I'm hooked on dark roast coffee but lighter roasts are getting popular these days. Recently I had a cup at Bluebeard which is local to Tacoma. https://bluebeardcoffee.com Their coffee is a medium roast but flavorful. There are some intricate tastes going on there. The key is the freshness of the roast and the bean quality.

I tend to disregard their promotions. I just want coffee too. The only discount I've used was the one for downloading their app which makes ordering much easier and for joining their coffee club. I have 4 pounds of Beyond Black on the way but the passes are closed due to a storm.

I do like it a lot. I'll get some again later on. Not right now though. I need to stew on it.

I'm going to try out some of the other blends on my next order. Gunship, AK-47, and Freedom Fuel along with Beyond Black. I want to try out their medium roasts a bit more even though I'm a dark roast fan. Their coffee club service works pretty well.

This is the trend now, towards smaller coffee roasters. I'll have to check them out.
