This coffee is our go to drink at any time of day, made simply in a filter coffee machine and added to warm milk. It is deliciously soothing, especially on cold wet days.
A lot more gentle than other African coffees.
I don’t know if this is due to my aeropress technique and recipe but I found this almost fragrant - a very nice coffee.
Glad that I chose this one based on Foundry’s own review.
Lovely fresh and rich taste
Took me a few brews (aeropress) to get this right but once I did it is a good tasting decaf.
I've recently decided to get back into 'proper coffee' and bought a new expresso machine (though as it turns out my problem was largely technique). I've been practicing on 'commercial coffee' with some quite good results and decided it was time to try speciality.
This is coffee but not as I've ever known it. IT TASTES OF STRAWBERRIES! This might seem odd but anyone who is into wine and used to appreciating the leather or tobacco tastes in wine will know that taste combinations are a complex thing. The big company coffee Italian roasts I had been using mainly tasted of strong. This is milder with a strawberry up front and a refreshing citrus finish and doesn't leave me with a caffeine headache. I did try it as an Americano with milk but it was a bit minging.
I had no idea that coffee could be so complex and unusual. It's a whole new world. I was doing 16g beans extracting to 35ml coffee with as fine a grind as my machine could manage (not very). A bit too expensive (80p/espresso) to drink as much as I want to but now my once a day treat. Exceptional!
I bought this coffee so far numerous times every year in the past 3. It has that comforting amount of funk. That solid bit of “oh hello there…“ fruity sweetness. In general it performs perfectly every time. Whether I brew it as espresso or any other method.
If someone doesn’t like this coffee it is definitely more of a taste preference than the fault of the coffee. It just delivers time after time.
I've bought quite a few different coffees from you guys now, and this one is up near the top for me. There is something very comforting about this coffee - the balance of sweetness and acidity and thick body makes it really moorishness and gulpable - I tend to try new things each time from you but this one I bought again. Love it.

Each time I have a decaf from Foundry Coffee Roasters I think it's the best. This one was then even more robust, punchy and flavoursome. Thank you.
Being a fan of african coffees generally. This definitely hits the spot for me. Good balance of chocolate, with bitterness and acidity.
I rarely write reviews for coffee beans but these are truly exceptional. The explosion of fruit and flavour makes every cup a delight. I’ve used it both with milk and my usual americano/double espresso in a bean to cup. I think using it with milk subdues the excellent aroma and flavour and it is best drink without milk. Truly an exceptional coffee bean
Quality brew. Really moreish as a v60.
Love the new packaging
Disappointing but a glorious memory
