Cartel, like the name implies, is a tough and ready blend that can give your day the kickstart it needs. Maintaining the smooth feel and a simple complexity that makes this blend different from the rest. This blend is utilized in the “hammer” that has become popular with high performance-people.
Discovered this coffee shop and their excellent coffee while visiting family in the area. This our favorite roast, very smooth and not bitter like some coffees. We pick up beans to bring home whenever we are in the area otherwise I order online and have them shipped. Hands down the best coffee I've had and my #1 preference. It's great brewed hot or cold.
My wife and I finally found a coffee that we both REALLY love. We grind as coarse as the grinder will go to keep it less bitter and use 7-8 grams per 6oz cup. This coffee has the smoothest taste. Almost a buttery feeling. Definitely a "full-mouth" experience. We highly recommend this coffee.
I enjoy this both hot and cold brewed!
I've reviewed Cartel before--I love it. I wanted to add another review just to praise Sturgis Coffee Co. though. In addition to always refunding excess shipping costs, they threw in an extra pound of coffee with my last order. (Admittedly, I've been ordering a lot!) The coffee is outstanding. But the way SCC takes care of its customers really sets it apart.
