    Ground French Roast, Canned

    I have been enjoying this coffee for years (August 2014 right about now). Have tried all the major purveyors (names omitted -- the usual suspects) and to my palate nothing else comes close. And as far as this company and customer service goes, I recently inquired via "Contact Us" about the whole bean French Roast as opposed to the canned variety, and got a call from the owner's son, after hours, at home... And he answered every question I had. I don't think Howard Schultz would be so obliging. Great coffee, great company. Thanks for your time, Will. You can go to sleep now.

    Best Organic French Roast

    My husband and I are coffee snobs. We have a super automatico coffee maker and only drink organic dark roast coffees. I have tried all the other organic coffee brands, but none is as rich and oily as Cafe Altura. I enjoy all their French Roasts, but find this one to be perfectly balanced with no smokey finish. I always buy whole bean and by mistake once I ordered ground. They were quick to send me what I wanted without question. Recently a new grocery store opened up nearby and I tried their organic French roast and it was bad, tasted like instant. I threw it out. I should know by now not to try other brands.

    Soooooooooooo Goooooooooood

    I'm willing to pay a ton for excellent coffee. These beans are dark, fragrant and super oily. They brew up smooth, delicious and rich. Beans are superior than those twice the price. But, you have to take care of your grinder. These are so fresh that cleaning the grinder is a must. If you don't clean often it can taste bitter but that's true in general.
    As with all coffee, it should be brewed with a popper grind and the right proportion and when its done right, its good coffee. I also like that its organic and traded fairly. If you enjoy STRONG DARK coffee you will not be disappointed.

    great coffee!

    Bought it for my parents. They love it. Sometimes its cheaper on amazon. They do specials and stuff there too and you can get it auto delivered. One less thing I have to worry about.. If I want some whole bean coffee for myself I go for the Biodynamic French roast here and get the cans too.

    Honey, Milk, Cafe Altura

    I try to purchase quality coffee and organic.
    It makes sense to consume something that cares about us.
    This is #1 in my book.
    I have tried many.
    This tops the list.
    Prompt service and ups shipping is legit.

    yes please~

    I love Altura coffee. Its the high grown, shade tree, bird friendly Arabica stuff.. But Its the taste that matters. The taste is very nice.

    If you like, oily DARK beans, extremely STRONG coffee and prefer your coffee made ONE cup at a time. Then you will ABSOLUTELY love this coffee.

    French Roast FOR ESPRESSO

    Bitter. Overpowering. I cant drink bitter. THEN I BOUGHT THIS ONE for my espresso machine and its robust and silky. Its a smooth taste and I love this French roast. I cant say I'm fond of the price, nor is my wife! But I adore this coffee. So does she.

    Better Than From The Store And Cheaper

    This is a dark roast with lots of oils and a smooth rich flavor. If you get it on sale get a lot. Its less expensive than a lot of the stuff in the store. Unless I can find Buckmaster's Coffee, this is my second favorite.
