Sorry for taking so long in our review. I shared the two coffee beans with my Pastor and another couple from our Church Anniversary Committee group. We all liked both coffees. Pastor was surprised at the fruitless of the Columbian one and though it would be a great after lunch or dessert coffee. Both of us like the Rwandan and thought it tasted very much like a high quality coffee served at a fine restaurant. Our favorite was the Rwandan. The reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 stars is that I've always been told that good beans should be oily ... both beans were dry. If you can offer a good reason why ... I'll revise the review to 5 stars.
Thanks for the review, John! Columbian coffees do tend to have a more chocolate, rounded flavor both due to the variety of the bean and preparation. The African coffees are often prepared to accentuate the fruity and floral notes. This is beginning to change as Latin American farmers are beginning to apply the same processes as the speciality growers in Africa. Regards to the presence of oil on the surface, that doesn't indicate the quality of the bean. Oils on the surface of the bean indicate the roast level, typically a French or Italian roast. These darker roasts overwhelm the native flavor of the bean and aren't our preference. Also, we roast using fluid bed roasting which applies heat with hot air. A conventional drum roaster roasts through conduction and (to a small degree) convection. Because of this, fluid bed roasting will typically appear a degree or two lighter than a drum roasted bean roasted to the same level.
Since I didn't get to drink the coffee, the five stars are as a purchasing customer only. We had the Confessional Coffee Value Pack sent to our daughter-in-law for her birthday. She is a former coffee house barista, and said the coffee was delicious. I CAN say the service was exceptionally good as there was a snag with my mode of payment and it was communicated to me immediately. The problem was solved with no delay. Delivery on this item was speedy and courteous, and I will send Coffee by Gillespie again as a gift. Now to get someone to send some to me!
