"Extra Cream" is right. This medium-dark roast has over-the-top body and crema. As expected, it has low acidity and aromas of dark chocolate, molasses and licorice. The unmistakeable smoky/rubbery notes of robusta, appropriate to this genre of espresso, translate to a potent presence of caramel in milk drinks. My main caveat: While it tastes pretty good considering its age, at 10.5 months (!) post-roast, this is a good 8 months older than purchases I have made from some other sellers, and I find it somewhat degraded. If this seller tightened up its inventory, it would probably rate 4 or 5 stars. To maximize retention of freshness after opening, I suggest freezing the balance in several glass (e.g. Mason) jars until needed.
