    I love these beans for my Breville Expresso Pro machine. Once I was able to get the grind time and size dialed in, these beans produce a perfect Expresso every time.

    I was given a bag of this coffee as a gift for Christmas. I am a coffee person so I like to try new kinds. I made this for the first time and it was so so so good. It is rich and flavorful, not bitter. I had to buy another bag right away because I cannot chance running out!

    I don’t know what was going on earlier, but the bag I just received today on 2/12/13 was roasted on 1/14/13. I know it’s past the golden ripe age of 10 days for the best espresso in the world that you better drink before it dies or shame on you, but who the F really cares. Good thing I don’t wear tight pants and a vest. Sorry, I’m just a regular guy who enjoys good espresso/coffee. A friend of mine brought this to make in a saeco espresso machine (probably not advisable according to espresso snobs) while we were on vacation and my wife and I fell in love with it. For people who just want real good espresso at a better price than buying it at Intellitgensia or Whole Foods, this is the place to get it. We grind it fresh each morning for our regular drip coffee machine. God forbid!!! When I want to be snobby, I use my french press.Just drink it and enjoy. The world won’t end if your shot gets luke warm.

    We purchased a Delonghi Espresso Machine back in March 2020. As there are so many kinds of coffee for Espresso machines my wife and I decided to buy a different brand/type of coffee since then.We’ve ordered 6+ different coffee beans so far and this in the first review I am writing. Not that the others weren’t good, but this Intelligentsia Black Cat Classic Espresso coffee produced a great cream, with a silky smooth chocolate & cherry taste that made the both of us immediately go back to make more.Definitely a recommendation to try. In fact, we added it to our subscribe and save!

    I really enjoyed this espresso. The flavor is really nice, not bitter at all. Has a nutty hint to it and is a lighter blend compared some other dark roasts. I would definitely buy again. My bag was roasted about a month before I received, but I’m not sure if a month is an ok time after the roasting process to receive.

    My new favorite espresso! I have tried the more mainstream “Italian” brands but I purchased this on the recommendation of a friend and avid espresso drinker. I absolutely love this espresso. No bitterness or sharp notes. It leaves a nice crema and is a smooth-tasting, easy drinking espresso. Love it!

    Back Cat Espresso, now classic apparently, tastes like angels dancing in the sky while your favorite bands play their best songs. It’s a sweet espresso, none like you’ve got very had before, and worth every penny. I’m lucky enough to have been to their Silver Lake coffee house and double blessed Amazon now sells this. It’s a whole bean bag so enjoy grinding those molasses crisped beans and letting the aroma of pure joy permeate the walls of your house. Makes a sweet shot with a bite, but add a little tea sugar and almond milk and it’ll be heaven. If I could only have one espresso for the rest of my time on earth it would be this one.

    When I’m bored by (annoyed with) our local roasters, a very good stand-by is Intelligentsia Black Cat Classic Espresso. In the past, I would buy from local-to-Twin Cities vendors (kowalskis, whole foods) but their roast dates went from 4 weeks old to 12 weeks old … the latter being completely unexceptable for a really good coffee. Finally took a chance ordering here and found: “Ships from and sold by Intelligentsia Coffee Inc” …they shipped from their immediately roasted batch. it arrived very soon after and waited for 1 week past roast date (my minimum favorite – some people prefer 3 days), and it was very delicious! I had forgotten how good their coffee is. Just bought my 3rd order here, so leaving a review. Yum.

    I love the flavor of these beans. Not bitter or burnt, but has a smooth, chocolate, buttery taste that you want in a latte.*However, DO NOT pay more than $13.99 for this. Not sure what the heck they are are trying to pull by making it $16+ dollars. Give me a break.*

    It is made to use as espresso i guess? but after reading the merits of this socially responsible fair trade company i wanted to support them. I brewed as regular coffee and it is outstanding! If you like dark roast i recommend this one. I add a bit less of the ground beans than i would normally, it is strong stuff and it’s immensly flavorful.
