Verve Coffee Roaster

Verve Coffee Roaster is one of California’s coffee roasting companies based out of Santa Cruz. These are single origin beans from Ethiopia. Unlike other Ethiopian beans, there is a unique subtleness to this bag. I have had lattes made from Verve beans before at the small coffee shops.

Opening the bag, there’s a faint citrus and nutty aroma. Overall the aromas were very subdued and that gave me a slight concern that the beans might be too old. Pushing forward and making my latte, the taste of the latte wasn’t very impressive. The latte had a “normal” taste. Many of the strong flavors associated with coffee are not present in the latte. Instead, I get this consistent grain/wheat taste with every sip. Is this a result of the roast?
