and man, it was RICH!! So rich, I did not know what to make of it at first so i went back and tried a breakfast blend. The flavor was so complex and strong i was initially turned off but i realized that this was how coffee was supposed to taste and that I was getting all the flavors of the beans and the roast. I have heard a lot of complaints that press pots were not big enough for more than one large cup but the taste is so rich that i do not need a second large cup. all in all a different taste experience.
