This is such a great coffee. The beans are not dry so when I grind them they glide right out of the coffee grinder. I like my coffee hot and strong - these beans always provide great results. San Francisco Bay coffee beans are always smooth, never bitter. It is a good cup of coffee, without the high price of some of the other beans. Can many times find these coffee beans on sale, or at a reasonable price. I have never had a bad cup of coffee when brewing with the San Francisco Bay coffee Beans. I wake up every morning and the first thing I do is make a pot of coffee...have been doing this for over 20 years. I have had good coffee working nights and i have had good coffee. I consider myself an expert of good coffee, and have learned you do not have to pay a hefty price for a good cup of joe. You can go to a coffee shop and pay quite a bit for a cup of coffee, or you can get the same quality at home with this coffee.
