Great Coffee

This is the second time I order it, great flavor.

Rialto Espresso
AS (Silver Spring, Maryland, United States)
the go-to espresso in our household

Tico’s Rialto espresso blend delivers a rich flavor that reminds me of being in a caffè in Italy. It’s full-bodied and smooth enough to drink straight, but it also makes outstanding milk drinks. This is the first time my cappuccino at home has matched the flavor of my favorite caffè in Turin.

fantastic medium roast espresso

If you like a medium roast espresso that delivers a full bodied shot with plenty of bright, juicy flavor, then this is a perfect option!

It’s lovely straight and particularly nice in cold drinks like espresso tonics.

good but not great

Good but not great. Not as full bodies as the best Swiss Water Decaf out there.

Love the balanced profile on this espresso. I visited Tico randomly on a weekday afternoon and the staff there were kind enough to brew me a latte then show me the blend they used to make it. I knew I had to have it then and there!!

Interestingly, I've had better experience pressing this with a coarser grind: 4-5 on a Baratza Sette. YMMV!

Love it.

Light and sweet

I can't perceive all those flavors in the tasting notes but as just a regular coffee drinker I can attest this is sweet. Almost no acidity or bitterness. I don't yet get or appreciate acidity in coffee anyway so this is perfect.

I was under the impression that washed coffee tends to be more acidic, but this is even sweeter than the el cedral natural.

I tried this coffee based on your recommendation and it delivered the goods. A tad stronger than your typical bean but very well rounded, robust and very flavorful.

Will buy again.

Great company but boring decaf

Big chocolate taste but not a big coffee taste. I’m new to needing decaf only, and trying to find bold flavor and decaf is hard. I do like that this is water processed, but it doesn’t have any more flavor than a $6 bag at the grocery store.

Hi A.,

We understand that finding bold flavor in decaf can be a challenge, but we are constantly working on improving our products to provide the best taste possible. We are glad that you appreciate the water processing method used in our decaf.

Highly recommended!

This coffee is truly something special! It has a honey flavor that is so different than any other coffee I've ever had. I love it! I brewed it pour over style with a splash of cream but black would be good too. You really can't go wrong with this one!

We shared with the giftee how Tico Coffee Roasters thoughtfully sources their beans for his Single Origin subscription. He was impressed, now he's really looking forward to receiving his subsciption shipments!

Very tasty!!

The natural process is such a good and different taste from your typical bean. Would definitely recommend!

I love the taste of cinnamon in it! It tastes great just as it is! I add nothing to it!

this tastes nothing like the La Minita from Coffe Bean. I was surprised there a citrus aftertaste...

The shipping service and packaging are well executed. Too bad the coffee did not meet my expectations.

Hi Thomas,
We're sorry to hear our Costa Rica La Minita didn't hit the spot for you. At Tico, the satisfaction of our coffee lovers is what we strive for.
Every coffee roaster will roast the coffee beans differently and so the results you will find even with similar coffees will vary. In our roasts, we are highlighting some very specific flavors the coffees offer and the La Minita has some very unique chocolate flavors with a hint of orange and citrus acidity. Our roast is likely lighter than what you are used to and as such these citrus flavors will shine through, while in a darker roast, they will disappear.
Thanks for your feedback!
Best, Tico Coffee Roasters.
