Product Description

Product Description

Rave Coffee only uses top quality coffee from the worlds best farms. Here in our roastery at the heart of the Cotswolds we batch roast our fresh coffee daily and extensively cup for quality assurance. We like to support the farmers that we work with and pay sustainable prices for our beans meaning our coffee is sourced with an ethical approach. Raves take on the 'Continental Blend'. We Roast this blend just a hint darker than our usual style and added a splash of high quality Robusta. The result is a coffee that punches through milk and delivers a welcomed kick of caffeine! As Cappuccino this coffee punches through milk - Dark chocolate and cocoa. Rich, full bodied and satisfying.

I bought these coffee beans on the strength of the other reviews here and elsewhere. (and because I've heard good things about Rave Coffee)

The blend itself is very good and the beans were roasted not so long ago. The ones I received however were not quite as fresh as I would have liked, having been roasted 3 weeks prior to me receiving them. Most people would agree that beans are at their peak somewhere between 5 and 20 days after roasting. This means that while my first shot was very good, by the time I get anywhere near finishing this enormous bag, they will long have gone stale... The delivery was very quick so this can't have been the issue. Perhaps I should have made enquiries as to the best time to order beforehand. They are still much better than anything you would find in a supermarket. (and sadly, many cafés)

That's the objective part over, now on to the more personal bit:

If you are the kind of person who enjoys drinking coffee in Starbucks, then these beans are for you. Don't hesitate to buy! You will not be disappointed! With the right care and attention, (or some good coffee making equipment) these beans will transport you right there. If, however, you prefer the coffee in Costa, or in Café Nero, or even in a nice Italian restaurant somewhere, then you may want to think twice before ordering these beans. I personally found the title a bit misleading as to me these beans just don't taste like what I expect from an 'Italian' blend.

The crema these beans produce is excellent, but this comes at a cost, because one of the reasons for this is the use of Robusta beans in the blend, which also give the shot more bitter tones due to the higher caffeine content.

I like but don't love... I expected it to be really strong and it's not. I would not buy again.

Wow, what a find! The Italian Job beans were roasted on 2 August and arrived 48 hours later. In fact they may have arrived quicker had I not been out at the time of first delivery attempt by Royal Mail. The aroma is/was to die for, it filled the air even before opening the parcel bag in the small parcel collection office and I rushed home to try them. They were roasted to perfection! My De'Longhi KG79 grinder ground them perfectly for my De'Longhi EC850.M coffee machine. The espresso had a lovely thick crema and the coffee tastes as good if not better than anything I've ever tried in the UK, Italy and Brasil. I cannot recommend the Italian Job coffee beans highly enough. I just hope Rave continue supplying them for years to come as I see no point buying anything else especially if the service I received is anything to go by!

Not as dark or strong as one might expect from the name or description. I'd call this a medium roast. Certainly tastes good but I find I need to put a fair bit in the machine to get a strong cup of coffee personally. I wasn't expecting it to be as dark and burned as say Starbucks espresso roast but these are the lighest "Italian roast" beans I've ever seen. I've turned my grinder to a finer grind and this is helping. Overall the coffee it makes is nice. Certainly has that chocolately taste when made with milk in say a latte.

Not sure how you define "fresh" but my beans were roasted on the 12/12/13 and I got them on the 5/1/13 so more than 2 weeks old. I'm not a coffee snob but I know those guys don't consider that fresh. This might be due to Amazon fullfilling the order? Not sure about that.

EDIT: I've upgraded my review having tried quite a few italian blends recently and finding myself reordering these as the best so far.

Great roasted beans, giving lovely flavour? Good for blending with other beans, reasonably priced too! Certainly recommend to other coffee buffs!

Quite unpleasant flavour, would not buy again. I'd even argue it's quite sickly. I would certainly recommend trying before buying large amounts as for some it will be a complete waste of money.

The important question about this coffee is would I buy it again, and the simple answer is YES. and I have a couple of times.
I'm no coffee expert , but I have tried lots of different coffee beans over the years, and this is a great any time of the day coffee.
One thing I do not like in a coffee is bitterness and this definitely isn't.
Good crème
Not too strong and not too weak.
Obviously everyone's taste is different and this is my own unbiased review.
