"I ordered five different coffee samples hoping to find just the "right" cup for me but ALL of your coffees are so good that I can't decide which I like best. I guess I'll just have to suffer through continuing my search. Thanks for your great coffee and great service!!!"

Paul Sharkey
Jamestown, Tennessee

"We absolutely loved New York, New York; enjoyed Organic Velvet soul also. beans were so fresh; looking for your recommendation for decaf; what's your top seller? We will continue to order from you... Thanks!"

Susan Ferry
Buffalo, New York

"We made the mistake of purchasing one of those "pod" style coffee makers. Needless to say we were back to your New York New York blend (and our drip coffee maker) after three days. Those stale pods must have been pre-packaged months before. They can't begin to compare with your rich, fresh roasted blends! Keep doing what you're doing. (We will never stray again!)"

Jeannine Acker
Plymouth, Minnesota

"Very good coffee and good variety. Really like New York New York and Velvet Soul. I try others at every order, but these are our favorites."

Richard Waddle
Rogers, Arkansas

"the coffee is delicious! i had to cut to about half-caf, so i ordered regular and decaf in three kinds--New York, Sumatra, and Kenya AA. My favorite changes every time I have a cup!"

Michele Martin
Anmoore, West Virginia

"The New York New York blend is wonderful. It is a fabulously smooth brew with fantastic flavor. I can't wait to try the Tanzanian Peaberry. You have a permanent customer."

Thurston Harris
Aldan, Pennsylvania

"Best Coffee I have ever had..period. (New York New York)"

Rick Neidlinger
Wilson, Kansas

"I am a new account but so far really impressed with the delivering and the follow ups on your end. When I first opened the New York type coffee, you could see the oils still in the bean. Beautiful. The coffee today that most people purchase in a store, like you said had been sitting sometime from picking to actual retail. you never see any oils. So even though I a new customer, you got me hooked. The freshness of the product is some of the very best I had seen. I am a chef and very familiar with coffee products. Keep up the great customer service."

Richard Krayewsky
South Ryegate, Vermont

"I used to buy from you when I owned Brew Horizons in Rehoboth Beach, when it existed. Just wanted some New York New York for our personal use. It was great coffee and we enjoyed doing business with you. Hope all is well."

Deborah Schwartz.
Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

"My son lives in the Cities, he recommended your wonderful coffee and gave us a gift certificate. We really enjoyed the New York New York in our first order and decided to stick with what we like, so here is another order. We appreciate the very fast service. Thanks."

Marilyn Anderson
Yankton, South Dakota

"Very good taste: New York, New York & Sumatra. I haven't tried any others, yet."

Glenda Noble
Waconia, Minnesota

"I love all your coffees. the aromas drive the delivery lady crazy. But I've had to switch to decaf. I enjoy the NY NY but am looking forward to your new decaf."

Bonnie Cole
Farmdale, Ohio

"I ordered the 14 oz size of New York-New York and Rockin' Java, as well as a sample of Espresso Italiano. So far, I've tried the New York and the Espresso -- both are great. I will definitely order from Specialty Java again."

Melinda Boyd
Waterloo, Iowa

"Thanks for great deal on the free package of NYNY coffee! I am forwarding this message to at least 5 friends who also love a great cup of coffee. Thanks!!"

Michael Bohl
Castroville, Texas

"I am really enjoying the Smooth Jazz & the New York/NY. The Velvet Soul is a little light for my tastes. I seem to prefer the darker roasts but I'm relatively new to coffee drinking even though I'm 57 in a few days. I'll be trying other types as time goes on as I'm very curious to see what the differences are."

John Borella
Danielson, Connecticut

"The New York, New York is great!"

Spencer Lerum
Mayer, Minnesota

"I recently purchased (3) of your blended coffees, which is something I rarely do (i.e., prefer "single origin" coffees). I Started with the "Paradise" blend, and just finished the "New York" "New York" blend ... truly enjoyed both! "Velvet Soul " is next, and I hope it will yield the same results as the other two! I don't know if it's my Technivorm brewer that brings out the best in this coffee or, if it's the other way around ... either way, I win! I haven't tried a press pot yet, but that's next. Actually, I decided not to wait, and just placed my second order today ... trying three more blends. If they're as good as what I've had so far, I think you have a "new" customer!"

Dave Charvella
Rochester, New York

"new york, new york my favorite."

Richard Ludders
Flat Rock, North Carolina

"Good coffee & espresso goes hand in hand with a good espresso machine and I've found this combo with your NY/NY & authentico espresso beans and my new Gaggia machine.I've been brewing for 17 yrs & think I've reached perfection."

Tripoldi
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"New burr grinder is working well. Enjoyed NY NY, now on to my favorite -- Paradise!"

Charlotte Sellers
Seymour, Indiana

"Neither the New York nor the Blue Mountain had any bite to it whatsoever and it was absolutely delicious. What causes the bite that shelf coffee causes, if you know?"

Linda Clark
Englewood, Florida

"The Guatemalan FT is an excellent anytime coffee. Also got the Rockin' Java and NY NY blends both of which are very good full bodied coffees but am partial to the Guatemalan. Keep up the good work. Thanks Brad."

Brad Whitehouse
Carnegie, Oklahoma

"I've served the New York New York decaf to guests several times recently and everyone comments on the fantastic flavor! The NYNY regular is one of my favorites as well. I can't wait to get up in the morning to grind and brew my first cup of the day!"

Mary Wroblewski
Eden Prairie, Minnesota

"Hi!, Though I'm no expert on the different Varieties of coffee I sure do know a GREAT cup of coffee and I have truly found THE PERFECT CUP!!!!! I have tried a few gourmet brands but never thought they were worth the cost of reordering....New York/New York is AWESOME!! I can't wait to try other varieties so I'M ordering again, within a week of receiving my first order, I would Hate to run out, no more mediocre coffee for me!!!! Thank you for a delightful experience and I sooooo look forward to my next shipment. Pam, in the beautiful mountains of N.C, LOVES your coffee!

Pam Sisk
Marion, North Carolina

"Thanks so much for answering all of my questions before I placed my order! What great customer service...and I was really excited that they were answered by the actual roast master. A definite first in my coffee ordering experience. I ordered the reg and decaf sample packs of Rock' N Java and New York New York since I'm a half caf drinker (I know, I know). I've had a hard time making great coffee at home but you've definitely won me over! Both were fantastic and I'll be placing another order soon."

Jan Bosch
Plymouth, Minnesota

"BEST" coffee I've had... i never was much on coffee cause of taste and bitterness... not anymore.. just can't wait to get up in the morning and enjoy my ny.ny."

Rod Cole
Tallahassee, Florida

"So far, NYNY and Smooth Jazz are outstanding in my opinion. The pure Columbian seems a bit mild mannered to me but good. Due to hurried and harried holidays, we have not tried the other two yet. Never had bags that were zip-lock as well as valved before... a big plus!!!"

Grant Gehlbach
Rock Hill, South Carolina

"Enjoying the New York New York immensely! Will order this again and look forward to trying new types in the future. Keep up the good work!!!"

K. W.
Nutley, New Jersey

Nancy Post

Paula Soderquist
Chanhassen, Minnesota

"Ok, we're ruined! My husband and I go on vacation and all we can think is..."We can't wait to get home and have some good coffee!" Not only is this coffee outstanding in flavor but and exceptional value! The service is fast and my emails have always been responded to with a personal touch. We have tried several that were amazing but New York New York and the Panamanian are so far our favorites. The personalized labeling makes it so great for gifts. Thank you Specialty Java for making mornings something to look forward to and evenings with your fabulous decaf so satisfying!"

Deborah Rowden
Siloam Springs, Arkansas

"I was very impressed with the coffee and I will purchase regularly. Thanks for the unprecedented free offer, it really was more than a free sample. I had to buy a $38.00 gift sampler from another vender just to try a variety of theirs. The New York New York was the freshest coffee I've ever tasted, I can't wait to try others. Thanks again."

Jim Hedrick
Nashville, Arkansas

New York New York is an excellent blend just as you said it was. I am very pleased with your product. Have not tried samples of Rockin Java & Breakfast Blend yet--still hooked on New York. I will be ordering more soon. Thank you for your professional service. Very good service and sales departments!"

Rick Crandell
Bartonville, Illinois

"I am an avid coffee drinker and love waking up to a good cup of coffee. I have never tasted coffee any better than what is right here. It gives my day a truly fresh start and when I have company the rave reviews are overwhelming. I have tried the New York, New York and the Smooth Jazz. The New York is my favorite so far although I like the smooth jazz also. The service in delivery is awesome and super fast. I am 100% satisfied with this coffee and you now have a steady customer. Again, thanks so much!

Betty Enger
Yorkville, Illinois

Cindy Patterson

Jeannine Acker
Plymouth, Minnesota

"I bought a new Brahn coffee maker and bean grinder. A bit of trial an error in trying to achieve the right flavor/strength, however getting better. I would like to complement your coffee varieties. I purchased several types in 2oz to try. Purchased a 16oz of the NY-NY blend and really like it."

Danny Brooks
Albany, Georgia

"Thanks so much for answering all of my questions before I placed my order! What great customer service...and I was really excited that they were answered by the actual roast master. A definite first in my coffee ordering experience. I ordered the reg and decaf sample packs of Rock' N Java and New York New York since I'm a half caf drinker (I know, I know). I've had a hard time making great coffee at home but you've definitely won me over! Both were fantastic and I'll be placing another order soon."

Jan Bosch
Plymouth, Minnesota

"While the prompt response and ease of ordering are value features, the quality of the product supercedes all other aspects in my mind. The New York, New York type is very good, and I would definitely order it again. Our preference for our regular coffee is a strong, robust flavor just short of espresso (We travel in Europe, so we enjoy espresso also). Keep up the good work."

Carl Howard
Tucson, Arizona

"My husband LOVES the New York New York! I ordered the espresso and I can tell it is not bitter but I am still in the early stages of espresso making and just haven't quite got the knack yet. I think I check out the forum and see if I can get some suggestions. Delivery was fast and ordering was easy. Thank you!"

Laura Lutzow
Nampa, Idaho

"I am on limited caffeine intake and found that combining the New York reg. and the New York decaf. was an excellent blend that meets my needs!!! I will recommend your coffee to others in our rural area (we are limited in access to fresh coffee beans in this part of SW Virginia. Thanks."

ME Watts
Crockett, Virginia

"Been buying my blend in Hawaii and live in Iowa. I now will be buying my blend from Minnesota! I have 3 samples and tried one,,NYNY and I am already sold! What a wonderful roast, I have tried hundreds of blends/roasters and this is tops! Can't wait to try the other 2! Shipping is second to none and as fresh as if I roasted the beans myself. You have a new client!!"

Shannon Booher
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Douglas Bart
Boothbay, Maine

"The New York New York is the only kind I have tried so far. It 's going to hard to try another kind. The New York is excellent! I have ordered twice and will order again. The first order I shared with my Mother-in-law.. The second order I had to split with my Mother-in-law. Great coffee! P.S.. The shipping was fast too!"

Kim Johnston
North Little Rock, Arkansas

"This is so cool. Our favorite of the three we purchased is the Rock & Java. We like kick ass coffee in the morning. The New York New York is second with and tastes better bur not as strong. Third we bought Paradise, which is how I found your site I was looking for the taste of a coffee I had many years back when I spent the Summer in Hawaii. Too bad Kona coffee cost an arm and a leg. Nevertheless this has been the best coffee we have had in as long as I can remember. Thanks and we can't wait to try more variety."

Brian Rodgers

Wendi Cooper

Mario Rodriguez

Jamaican Blue Mountain

"I've been buying the Jamaican Blue Mountain, and the Kona for about 1 1/2 years, and I've never been disappointed, not one single time. I've tried JBM from over 10 different sources, and never tasted any that compares to yours. My in-laws were just at my house for college graduation, and drank up $160 of my coffee, everyone loves to come to my house for coffee. Thanks, in this world satisfaction is hard to come by."

Steve Lewis
League City, Texas


"My big worry was whether I'd be getting real JBM. I got screwed at a brick and mortar suppler - it tasted like Folgers. But this coffee was the real deal. I limit myself to 1 cup a day to fully savor the incredible flavor. I think I'll try your Kona next time."

Alfred Tate
Canadian, Oklahoma

"I have received my order of Jamaican Blue Mountain. It is the real deal. Perfect and smooth. Bliss. Roasted exactly the way I hoped. And I could swear I woke up faster and better (which is the way I remember Jamaican Blue) I have a question about caffeine content in coffee. Are there differences in caffeine content with the various origins of coffees? I know the lighter the roast the more caffeine. Most people are under the impression of the exact opposite. I have been wondering if there are known categories of beans which have a naturally higher caffeine content. Thanks."

Patricia Baker
Amarillo, Texas

"Kevin, Thanks for the phone call - I really appreciate you following up and making sure my order was correct. :) We purchase JBM for my father- in-law every Christmas and usually just go with whoever pops up on the google search. However, we ordered from you last year (you popped up!) and he said the quality of the coffee was terrific - couple that with your thoughtful phone call today, and I am done googling for our annual order. You have my business, small as it may be. :) And I will be referring you whenever I can. Thank you again! And have a very Merry Christmas. :) Julie :)"

Julie Roberts
Kennewick, Washington

"btw, I went to Jamaica and your blue mountain is better than anything I had over there."

Mike Ralston
Westminster, California

"The Jamaican Blue Mtn is wonderful. Years ago, in a coffee shop in Georgetown (DC), I bought 1/2 pound of Jamaican Blue Mtn - top of the mountain. It was the smoothest coffee I've ever had in my life. Recently, I decided I wanted some more of that coffee and went searching on the internet and found you. It's wonderful."

Chris Rocus
Gaithersburg, Maryland

"I went and bought a Cusinart Grinder just to be able to enjoy these beans and so far I have been very, very pleased. I enjoyed the Jamaican Blue Mountain very much, the Yemen was good and am now enjoying the Costa Rican. Will be ordering again. Thanks!"

Brad Johnson
Atlanta, Georgia

"I have just started to try different brews and really appreciate the sample sizes offered. Blue Mountain was fantastic, every bit as good as the rave reviews it gets. I just wanted to drink every drop!"

Holly DuBiel
Carnegie, Pennsylvania

"I have ordered Blue Mountain Coffee from one other source and wanted to see how it compared to others who sell the same coffee. Blue Mountain Coffee is becoming my favorite coffee. Yours compares favorably to my previous source (Precious Provisions), and is comparable in price, but is a little bit more than Precious Provisions. I still need to try Kona (pure, not blended) to see how this compares. Do you guys carry Kona coffee?"

Robert Cranfield
Franklin, Tennessee

"Of the 3 types I ordered I am enjoying the Jamaican Blue Mtn. It is the first time I drank black coffee. It is very fresh tasting. I am sure I will enjoy the others when they get opened.."

Elizabeth Saltalamacchia
Ridgewood, New Jersey

"Love your product. French Roast for every day and Jamaican blue mountain for the weekends. I do wish though that there was a way to choose a magnet other than asking for one in the comment box while ordering. I like to give them when I share a bag with someone."

Stephen McGill
Mount Carmel, Illinois

"Just tried the Jamaican blue mountain- will order again!!"

Maria Rodriguez
San Diego, California

"I just opened the package of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans which I received a month ago and have kept frozen. The brewed coffee was the best I have ever tasted in my life. It is just robust enough, smooth and satiny in the mouth, has a splendid fragrance and mellow full body and gives a nice jolt of caffeine!"

Juliette Muscat
Timonium, Maryland

"Neither the New York nor the Blue Mountain had any bite to it whatsoever and it was absolutely delicious. What causes the bite that shelf coffee causes, if you know?"

Linda Clark
Englewood, Florida

"I recently purchased my first sample bags of both Jamaican Blue Mountain and Kona beans. I have to say, one taste and I understood what the fuss was about -- It was the best cuppa coffee I ever had! Everything else tasted bitter and watery by comparison, so now I am ready to buy a big bag."

Lauren Rapport
West Hollywood, California

"I was very impressed with the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee which I had before, but this tasted much better. I am still working my way through the different varieties."

Barry Goody
Baldwin, New York

"This Jamaican was THE best coffee I've EVER had!"

Jill Filek-Kendall
Watertown, Minnesota

"I am very pleased with the Jamaican Blue Mtn. coffee that I rcvd. I have passed your info on to several friends."

Mary Ann Plakas
North Canton, Ohio

"My husband loves Blue Jamaican, Caribou hasn't had it the last few years-- It was great to have a local company to order from over the net. My husband said the beans were awesome and so flavorful and smooth!! (I'm not a coffee drinker only tea)"

Stacy Hageman
Ramsey, Minnesota

"Love the coffee. Will definitely be using your service from now on. Smooth Jazz is absolutely exquisite, very nice. The Jamaican Blue Mountain was very nice too! Tried the samples and love the coffee. Your prices are good and the beans are great! The aroma of a freshly opened bag is to die for!!"

Brian Brackeen
Denton, Texas

"This is my first order. The ordering and receiving process was smooth and on the projected time. The quality of the product was good. It was truly fresh as advertised. I started with an exotic coffee, Jamaican Blue. I look forward to further purchases as well as the forum to expand my coffee drinking pleasure. One thing that impressed me immediately was the professionalism of your website. I would like to see coffees with ratings, similar to that in wine ratings. It is fun to see how people rate certain coffees and then compare with ones own rating. Perhaps this is done and I haven't stumbled upon it yet. So far, I like what I have found."

Larry Lynn
Flowery Branch, Georgia

"We discovered Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee on a trip to Jamaica 20 years ago but never afforded ourself the luxury of purchase here in the states due to the cost. I purchased this coffee from Specialty Java to celebrate a 29th Anniversary because your cost, freshness, delivery were unbeatable and I will highly recommend you to other "Coffee Snobs" like ourselves."

Becky McIndoo
Phoenix, Arizona

"I tried the Jamaican Blue Mountain and it is very good. Every one who tried it said it was very tasteful and had a lot of body to it."

Florence Munsey
Totowa, New Jersey

"I bought this coffee for my boss as a gift for Christmas. And he had called me the day after Christmas and had said " this is the best jamacian blue mountain coffee he has ever gotten!" So I'm really happy with the product that I bought from you guys. If I got to buy anymore coffee I am buying from your site."

Sumatra Mandheling

"I finally found a roaster that knows how to roast Sumatran (dark). Best coffee I have had in ages."

Darrell St. Clair
Wiggins, Mississippi

"After trying several other on line roasters I have finally found one that knows how to roast Sumatra Mandheling (DARK). I need look no further. This is with no doubt the best Sumatra ever. Ordered on Monday, roasted on Monday and drinking on Wednesday. Thank You"

Darrell St. Clair
Wiggins, Mississippi

"Very good taste: New York, New York & Sumatra. I haven't tried any others, yet."

Glenda Noble
Waconia, Minnesota

"Thanks a lot! Now coffee anywhere but at home just doesn't taste as good since I've become a customer of SpecialtyJava.com! So far my favorite is the Sumatra, although I have no complaints about the others that I've tried. Great coffee! Wonderful service! Delivered quickly!"

Kathryn Vess
Pacolet, South Carolina

"Hi Folks, As I write this I'm sitting here and enjoying a cup of Sumatran from the first order of beans. Holy cow! What a superbly satisfying cup this is. I'm hooked. Thanks a million!"

Eric Mattocks
Giddings, Texas

"I am about ready to order my next bag of beans. I must say, your fresh roasted coffee was what I was after. It produced that ephemeral rare coffee pleasure I knew I could only get with fresh roasted beans. Now that coffee experience that was once only once in 50 cups is an every morning affair. I love Sumatra coffee. What other variety should I try?"

James Ervin
Rocky Mount, Virginia

"I have truly enjoyed my first order of Sumatra coffee!"

Kathryn Vess
Pacolet, South Carolina

"I use the finest grind (8) possible on the Kitchen aide grinder. My objective is to have the cup resemble a meal in its body. I expect a cup, generally the first, to have a sandy texture. This is before the coffee has had a chance to settle any sediment it may have. Such cups do have a "bite" which you may identify as acidity. But with a dark roast, acidity is limited, purely by its nature. Therefore, a liberal dose of grindings results in a very full flavored, rich taste, not overly saturated with a caffeine shot that might "wire you." My first experience with Sumatra was in Jakarta at several , I think, five star hotels, that served a full bodied coffee, but mellow. I have not yet achieved that flavor, but the Sumatra you sell closely resembles that experience."

Richard Volkman
Ponca, Nebraska

"Just had my first cup of your Sumatra Mandheling blend this morning. WOW. I no longer have to go to Starbucks for my Sumatra fix."

Dale Gilberson
Crystal Lake, Illinois

"My favorite coffee is Sumatra. yours seems darker roast than any i have ever bought. i have not decided yet if i prefer yours. the blue mtn was incredible !!! so is the price ! lol"

Gary Fuller
Eclectic, Alabama

"the coffee is delicious! i had to cut to about half-caf, so i ordered regular and decaf in three kinds--New York, Sumatra, and Kenya AA. My favorite changes every time I have a cup!"

Ethiopian Harrar

"Our local suppler of Ethiopian Harrar shut down. The coffee was excellant and we feel lucky to find you, a suppleir of equal quality and our favorite varity. Love your coffee."

Cecil Prack
Upper Lake, California

"I should say that I am a real "coffee-maniac" – I drink 10-15 cups of espresso a day, the last one right before going to bed. So, the quality of coffee I drink is very important to me. For the past several years, I had been regularly buying 5-lb bags of Ethyopian Harrar from a company in CA; however, after they twice sent me something that had nothing to do with Harrar, I started looking for another supplier and found your company. The coffee that I received from you has given me aesthetical joy. It is a real Harrar, and it is perfectly roasted. Your service is super-professional, too: my order was processed promptly, you kept me informed about the status of my order, and you even followed up on it after I received the coffee. Thank you."

Leonic Andreev
Tucson, Arizona

"The coffee samples we received to try out your coffee were so outstanding. We forgot what great coffee tastes like. We are honoring your coffee by properly grinding it just before we use it and we have our old French Press back out as our primary brewing method. Ethiopian Harrar is our current favorite but we look forward to exploring others. Warm Regards, Walter and Jane."

Walter Bera
Wayzata, Minnesota

"I am happy as a clam with the transaction and am at this very minute enjoying of a cup of coffee brewed with Ethiopian beans. I suspect I'll order from you again."

Ted Ammon
Jackson, Mississippi

"You are the only site on the net I buy my coffee from.....period. Harrar being a 'wild' i don't trust anyone else to get it right.....*shrug*."

Deb Terry
Lawrence, Kansas

"We are enjoying the Ethiopian Harrar coffee we received from you. Also, love the personalized label! Nice touch!"

Burgess Dell-Wilson
Berkley, Michigan

"The Harrar I recently received is simply amazing. I've recommended it to all my friends. I thoroughly appreciate the master roaster's comments for this coffee too. They are spot on! Thanks!"

Cindy Gustafson
Hernando Beach, Florida

"Not only the best Ethiopian I've ever had, but service and price were exceptional. I will be back for more."

Charles Cifuni
Mt. Holly, North Carolina

"I tried you're recipe for cold press with the Ethiopian Harrar and it's like drinking a mocha every morning without the chocolate. Smoothest ever!"

Espresso Organico

"Blind Assessment: The surprise here is how well this blend performs in longer milk drinks. As a straight espresso it is agreeable enough, dominated in the aromatics by low-toned, musty notes that read as a raisiny semi-sweet chocolate or perhaps a spicy, cantaloupe-like fruit. The body is medium to full, the finish simple and rich with a slight astringent edge. The blend exerted a powerful though heavy dark-chocolate presence in short milk, but with more latte-like quantities of milk it bloomed with great sweetness and vivacity."

Kenneth Davids
CoffeeReview.com

"This was my first order and I was very pleased. Very happy to have found a good source for organic espresso beans. I will definitely be ordering more."

Joanne Hewitt
Midland, Michigan

"I really like the Espresso Organico that I ordered; just the right roast and no excessive oil, so my grinder and Silvia loved it. The delivery was great also. I will be ordering again when my holiday gift coffees run out - maybe before 'cause I like yours so much. Glad I ran on to your website!!"

Ann Gray
Iowa City, Iowa

"We use the Espresso Organico in our Necta Kikko and Saeco Barista Supremo gourmet coffee vending machines and our customers love it!"

Latte 4U

"I love your Espresso Organico and am ordering sample sizes of your other espresso coffees to see if it can even get better!"

Roy Davis
Roland, Arkansas

"I recently discovered your product. I tried your Organico roast. I'm currently trying your Authentico roast, which is as suggested. (Similar to illy.) Awesome stuff. I'm sure I'll be ordering again in the future. The only suggestion I have is to keep doing what you're doing!!!"

Jason Tolzmann

"I could not be happier. Your Espresso Organico is, for me, perfect. I fall asleep at night thinking of the first cup in the morning. Thank You."

Espresso Organico Dark

"Blind assessment: Roundly deep, smoky aroma with hints of low-acid fruit and dark chocolate. In the small cup medium body, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, pungently sweet with aromatic wood, dark chocolate, and a continued hint of low-acid fruit, mango perhaps. The sweetness carries into the finish, but fades toward a smoky astringency in the long. Powerful presence in milk, almost too powerful in short milk, where the dry, smoky character dominates. Sweetens in big milk (four parts or more), moving the dark chocolate and mangoish fruit notes forward and softening astringency. Who should drink it: Those who value smoky intensity in a very dark-roasted espresso that preserves sweetness, body, and some complexity. Extremely strong presence in milk; should be able to stand up to almost any amount of dairy and embellishments."

Kenneth Davids
CoffeeReview.com

 

"I really liked your espresso. We got it in last week, and I made quite a few shots with it, at many different parameters. I thought it was nice, stout and fruity. It was more Chocolate rounded taste, not a super long finish. Personally, I think it would cool to see the same components in one stage lighter also, or more curious as to what that would do to it. I got a little dark fruits with it, and a bit cooler temp. And thanks again for letting us taste that great espresso."

Gina Palandri
EspressoPartners.com

"My family really loves your espressos. We've tried the Italiano, Organico and Organico Dark roasts. We use a super-automatic Gaggia Titanium plus to prepare our espressos and were told that when using the Organico Dark roast, to put just enough beans in the hopper so that the beans do not remain more than a day in the hopper. Otherwise, the plumbing of our Gaggia might get clogged. This worked just fine, and we want to order more of the Organico Dark. It was THE favorite of everybody in the family. A question for you: the espresso Allegro is listed as being an even darker roast than the Organico Dark. Will it cause problems for our Gaggia? How does it compare in taste to the Organico Dark?"

Steve Cox
Schoolcraft, Michigan

"The Organico Dark is our favorite. It is wonderful when diluted with just a wee bit of water. No milk or other flavorings needed and no bitter taste that needs a sweetener. Just a wonderful rich dark, smokey taste."

Kenya AA

"I have roasted my own coffee and recently tried Kona & Jamaican coffee from you. The Kenya AA beats them all as far as I am concerned. I detected strong caramel notes, hints of chocolate and some smokiness."

Rich Oberg
Groveland, Massachusetts

"Thanks again for your continued dedication to your product and your customers. It is rare in our economy today! I appreciate you guys! (And gals). It's a joy doing business with you, when I order, I know I'll get what I ordered in a timely fashion and that it will be exactly like you say it will be. Your Kenyan AA is without doubt the best coffee I have ever had! Keep on doing things like you do! God Bless;"

Rev. Johnny Thompson
Stanford, Kentucky

"I was a bit hesitant to order because my experience with Kenya AA is having it in Kenya. I had found a good source a few years ago but threw out the package and didn't remember the source. I must say that I am very pleased with the product I have received from you and I have written and saved your site. I will definitely be ordering again. I gave some of the beans away as Christmas presents and I included your web site. Thank you very much for a quality product and a very rapid delivery!! Merry Christmas!"

Teresa Thorley
Dover, Delaware

"I was very satisfied with my coffee. It was more fresh than any other coffee I've had. The taste and aroma was extraordinary. I chose the Kenya AA and will definitely be purchasing more"

Bryan Plunk
Virginia Beach, Virginia

"Your Kenyan AA is the finest coffee I have ever had the pleasure to drink. Your service is just as good. I appreciate you for your dedication to your product and your customers! It's a pleasure to do business with people you know you can trust and whose product is exactly as described if not better. Keep it up! You've got a loyal customer in me. I appreciate you!"

Johnny Thompson
Stanford, Kentucky

"I ordered the Kenya AA and Panamanian coffee. This is the best tasting coffee that I have ever had. I ordered the coffee on a Tuesday night and received it Friday afternoon. I gave samples to my friends and they loved it. You now have another customer for life. Keep up the great service and products."

Brian Ridenour
Fairway, Kansas

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the Kenya AA coffee. I have a new burr grinder and it has enabled me really enjoy my coffee. I do both drip and french press."

John Alcorn
Angleton, Texas

"The Kenya AA is the first sample I have tried from you. The smell of the beans when I opened the bag was incredible. For me, part of the enjoyment of coffee is in the smell; Kenya AA delivered. I was also very impressed by the taste. It was strong enough for me to enjoy, but mild enough not to be bitter with a bite. I plan to order more.

Jimmy Hazlett
Stanford, Kentucky

"I have just one thing to say to you after making a pot of your Kenya AA.........................................OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!! No More Caribou For Me!!!!!!!!!!!.......You Folks ROCK!" I just got my shipment of the Espresso Italiano. I opened the bag, sniffed the contents and it was as if the essence of heaven had been released upon my senses. I actually gasped! Then I pulled my morning double shot. The thick syrupy golden liquid danced across my tongue like that of a ballroom dancer gliding gracefully and across the floor. Then it was gone. Oh, this can't be the end I thought, I had another and was in heaven once more. THANK YOU!

John Kidd
Waite Park, Minnesota

"The value of your coffee beans was a pleasant surprise.......however, the aroma and taste were amazing! I had been using a local supplier for my Kenya AAA coffee for a number of years and assumed that it was "as good as it gets".......wrong!! Very good taste, easy to order, quick delivery and good product value."

Dennis Bolinger
Roann, Indiana

"the coffee is delicious! i had to cut to about half-caf, so i ordered regular and decaf in three kinds--New York, Sumatra, and Kenya AA. My favorite changes every time I have a cup!"

Colombian Supremo

"I have tried a lot of different coffees and finally found your on the internet and decided to try them. My husband is from Minnesota and I figured what the heck maybe they can roast good coffee beans. Well we love the Columbian coffee beans. Plain coffee, no flavors for us. Thank you so much. Everyone that has a cup of our coffee says it is good coffee."

Linda Collison
Payson, Arizona

"I had to adjust the amount of coffee I use per cup as I went to the lighter roast Columbian over the darker roast starbucks, and when that was adjusted then I knew your product was coffee at its finest. I am very pleased with your product and also knowing there is someone at the helm watching and caring about His reputation and the quality of the coffee and to me the most important, the satisfaction of the customer. Bottom line its only coffee but by putting it all together the quality of product and the concern for customer satisfaction, to put it simply it is Coffee done Right. Happy new year and much success to all of you."

Espresso Allegro

"Love Allegro, cuz I love the darker roasts, but hear because of the oilier beans to making a darker roast can clog grinders. Little concerned, but hate light to med. roasts since I am strictly a strong cappa drinker with lots of micro foam."

Linda Jardee
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"Helpppp! ever since my Uncle came over for coffee and tasted your Espresso Allegro, he now comes over for coffee NOT once but 3 times a week!!! he is hooked as bad as I am!! Me and my Espresso Allegro forever in love :)

Dora Agosto
Round Lake, Illinois

"My boss lives in Seattle. Mostly drinks Starbucks. Gave him about 1 1/2 or more lbs. of the Espresso Allegro. In 2 weeks it was gone. One of the 5 lb bags I am ordering today is his Christmas present. We haven't ordered in a while due to sickness and 3 of our coffee drinkers were gone for 3 weeks. 2 of them were in Africa. Brought home an Ethiopian bean that their cook, while in Africa, roasted. The bean is so dark it is black, but doesn't taste burnt. Oh how we do love a good dark roast."

Donna Monroe

French Roast Organic

"Hi! I have an automatic delivery for 30oz of Organic French Roast to be roasted the first Monday of the month. Would you please add a 14oz of the same coffee? I have turned my in-law's on to your product and they are very happy."

Anne
Palos Verdes Estates, California

"The French Roast is best I have ever tried. I have sampled many different brands, starbucks, milestone, eight o clock, and other specialty roasters. Keep doing what your doing. The quality and value are excellent."

Timothy Chyo
Dearborn, Michigan

"SpecialtyJava, I recently received my first order of your French Roast (56oz), and I'm writing to tell you that my experience with your business practices, quality and pricing threaten to screw up the entire coffee producing industry. How do you sleep at night knowing the adverse impact and advantage you have on the rest of the nation's coffee producers? The flavor of your French Roast is perfect to my way of taste, whether hot and fresh brewed, or cold hours later. There's no acrid element to the French Roast, and the smoothness is indescribable. As with about half of human beans (as Pogo would call us), coffee makes me somnambulistic instead of more alert, however I'm not made sleepy with your French Roast, as with other brands of French Roast prepared in the same way, and that's terrific. Thanks for being you, and for being there. Courage."

Robert Armour
Lakeside, California

"Love your product. French Roast for every day and Jamaican blue mountain for the weekends. I do wish though that there was a way to choose a magnet other than asking for one in the comment box while ordering. I like to give them when I share a bag with someone."

Stephen McGill
Mount Carmel, Illinois

"We enjoyed your French Roast and Sumatra decaf. It arrived in less than a week."

Reginald Spittle
Mariposa, California

"The French roast is my favorite; I love extremely dark roasts and a few other varieties to choose from in that category would be great!"

Linda Sny
Layton, Utah

Just getting to know what my formula is going to be. First pot-Too strong. Second and third - close, but not quite. This is fun. I have been a traditionalist all my life and stepping out into the void experiencing the spectrum of new and exciting coffee flavors met with anticipation. I must confess however that at 68 years of age, don't you think it is about time? Thanks for the opportunity. I tried the French Roast first and it is nothing like a store bought can of poop, I'm looking forward to the other flavors/"

Donovan Elliott
League City, Texas

"Your blend of French Roast coffee is the best I have ever had! I have been drinking French Roast coffees for the last 10 years and yours has more flavor than any brand I have tried. It had a rich, robust flavor that can not be beat. Besides the taste, the smell alone is intoxicating. This is a must try for any coffee lover."

David Hofseth
Hopkins, Minnesota

"Fantastic Roast to Order French Roast coffee. Way deeper, richer flavor than Starbucks or Trader Joes. Specialty Java coffee (french roast) will be hard to beat in the world finals. Keep up the outstanding work. Thanks again."

Paul Thornton
Torrance, California

"This is the first time I have ordered coffee beans to be roasted just for me. WOW! I am so enjoying my fresh roasted beans a mixture of French Roast and Mocha Java. I have had so much fun grinding enough beans so make several pots of coffee and taking them with me when I go to visit my best friend and the news office I just retired from. You should have heard the comments from my friends. They were so impressed (as I) they wanted to know all about purchasing fresh beans; how to where etc. Will I order again? You bet!! Thank you for being there when I wasn't able to fine Mocha Java on the store shelves anymore; that is why I made the choice to order through SpecialtyJava.com. Now, you will be my supplier as I certainly enjoy my fresh roasted coffee each morning."

Ethiopian Yergacheffe

"So far I've tried PT's, CoffeeFool, the Roasterie, and you guys. All have been good - I like your feedback and order tracking very much - that feature is lacking for a couple of the other guys. The Yergacheffe has been my favorite so far."

Tim McKnight
Lexington, South Carolina

"I originally bought Ethiopian Yergacheffe (sp) at the market near my home. Then they stopped carrying it . IT took me some time to find some one who carried it. Your service and quality have been great. I am recovering from Cancer and one of the things I lost was all sense of taste. I have told everyone that I miss the taste of coffee (yours ) the most. I think it is gradually coming back. So keep up the good work."

Jeff Rich
Plainville, Connecticut

"Your Ethiopian Yergacheffe is the best coffee we have ever tasted. Another order coming!"

Don Shannon
Kennewick, Washington

"Your coffee was absolutely fabulous! I am now a loyal customer. It was wonderful to be able to try samples of so many varieties. Each one was so rich, ultra flavorful and fresh! I am hooked! My favorite so far is the Ethiopian Yergacheffe."

Kris James
Waconia, Minnesota

"We were WOW'd by the freshness compared to what we have been buying locally. This was alo our first opportunity to try the Ethiopian Yergacheffe - It is a fantastic coffee!"

Dale Shirico
Oviedo, Florida

"Thanks for the follow-up. I ordered from you several years back; one for myself and one for my sister and brother-in-law. I savored mine. They inhaled theirs. Finding a good source for Ethiopian Yergecheffe and knowing it is freshly roasted is a real delight. I am sipping a cup now, as I write. Coffee isn a sensual pleasure. Yours is some of the best I've had. Many thanks for the delightful sensory experience and your prompt service! Makes getting that cup of sensual delight most gratifying."

Bruce Brown

"The Guatemalan FT is an excellent anytime coffee. Also got the Rockin' Java and NY NY blends both of which are very good full bodied coffees but am partial to the Guatemalan. Keep up the good work. Thanks Brad."

Brad Whitehouse
Carnegie, Oklahoma

"This is the first bag of Smooth Jazz I've ordered. It is wonderful and I am very pleased with the coffee. I do believe that I prefer the coffee from Guatemala even better. I'm not completely sure why, but my first instinct is that the Guatemalan is a bit toward the mild side, yet maintains a lot of flavor. Still, I would order Smooth Jazz again anytime."

Charley Cameron
Haughton, Louisiana

James Waggoner
Phoenix, Arizona

"I found your website from several reviews after buying a new Jura Capresso. I ordered the Espresso Authentico and Espresso Italiano. We loved how rich and smooth the Authentico tasted. In fact, a friend we had over commented several times how amazing it was to get an Americano that was not bitter at all. We have now ordered some for him as a gift, so now you have 2 new very satisfied customers."

Andrew Lassen
Dubuque, Iowa

Gary Sakura

Tripoldi
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"We ordered the Espresso Authentico and the Espresso Italiano. We've only tried the Authentico so far. We are enjoying it and looking forward to trying the Italiano. We will probably be ordering again when we start running low."

Jean Cubero
Tampa, Florida

"Wonderful espresso, fantastic flavor and crema. (Espresso Authentico) We knew right away we were going to love these beans because they were not too oily. So often Espresso beans are "greasy", and very difficult to persuade into the burr grinder that is built into our superautomatic machine. We are newbies, only had a superauotmatic for 7 months. We have been experimenting with countless number of gourmet espresso beans in all price ranges, this one has them all beat even the 45$ lb bags were put to shame! Fantastic flavor & aroma and the perfect non bitter aftertaste. So smooth, and creamy, husband is totally into latte', but I have really enjoyed this without the foam fix.."

Bill and Angela Turner
Yukon, Oklahoma

"For the money, your espresso authentico is by far the best espresso my wife and I have ever drank. We have tried brands costing twice as much as yours, but with only half the flavor and freshness!!"

Paradise

"I tried the Paradise sample that you gave away last month. I have NEVER tasted a better coffee. I usually like the strong dark roasts (I usually get the Sumatran), but I'm really glad I tried the Paradise sample. The only problem is going to be deciding which one to get next time. Thank you very much! P..S. you guys didn't stumble upon the Garden of Eden, did you?

Bob Hoffman
East Bethel, Minnesota

"New burr grinder is working well. Enjoyed NY NY, now on to my favorite -- Paradise!"

Charlotte Sellers

"Fresh-roasted and fragrant, Paradise arrived this afternoon, and I brewed a cup (non-automatic drip) this evening as I returned to my computer. Wow! Terrific! What a great way to slow down the day and relax. Thanks for the pleasure of enjoying great coffee -- and for placing the order for me when I couldn't! (No need to reply. I just wanted to let you know how good the coffee tastes and how much I appreciate repeated good service.)"

Charlotte Sellers
Brownstown, Indiana

"Great coffee, paradise my favorite!!!!!!"

Rick Hawkins
Taft, California

"I recently purchased (3) of your blended coffees, which is something I rarely do (i.e., prefer "single origin" coffees). I Started with the "Paradise" blend, and just finished the "New York" "New York" blend ... truly enjoyed both! "Velvet Soul " is next, and I hope it will yield the same results as the other two! I don't know if it's my Technivorm brewer that brings out the best in this coffee or, if it's the other way around ... either way, I win! I haven't tried a press pot yet, but that's next. Actually, I decided not to wait, and just placed my second order today ... trying three more blends. If they're as good as what I've had so far, I think you have a "new" customer!"

I used to go to Starbucks but not anymore. We have tried several varieties, such as NY NY, Smooth Jazz, Daystar Lights and a couple of the organics, and we love them all. Right now my favorite is Daystar Lights. It has a wonderful rich chocolatey finish that I love. Thanks for a wonderful product. I'm spreading the word."

Janice Curlin
Texas

"It has a good aroma smells like coffee should taste. It has a med. body, I would like it a little stronger but over all I am happy with it. Your service is the BEST and I followed your email recommendation to try the Daystar Lights. Your coffee is the freshest keep up the great work!"

"Recently received my DeLonghi Magnifica espresso-cappuccino maker and tried your Italian Espresso. This is as good as it gets. There is nothing finer... the crema, flavor and freshness is simply amazing. I would recommend this over Starbucks, Tullys and Peets all day long. You must try this coffee with a good machine like the DeLonghi or Jura Capresso. I'm sold and will never turn back. This is even better than the Illy espresso beans supplied with the machine. All I can say is "WOW" and "thank you" for your superior product and excellent service."

Gordon Stafford

Martin Weyl
Green Brook, New Jersey

"The lightness of the ground beans fills my Bialetti higher, floats in the first 2 splashes in the Melitta. And the flavor of all 3 types (NY.NY.Decaf, Tanzanian Peaberry, Espresso Italiano) had a softness and a depth which was surprising, wonderful, almost redefining what "coffee" means. Thank you."

John Hay
New Haven, Connectic

It was a pleasure to find your site and your coffee. I generally prefer the true Italian model of medium roasted beans, long on crema, short on bitterness. (Starbucks isn't really even coffee, particularly as they pour off the crema when transferring from 1 cup to the next!) Your coffees obviously aim for the truer authentic roast style and I enjoyed their freshness."

Lewis Rosengarten
Saratoga Springs, New York

"I ordered the 14 oz size of New York-New York and Rockin' Java, as well as a sample of Espresso Italiano. So far, I've tried the New York and the Espresso -- both are great. I will definitely order from Specialty Java again."

Richard Davis

"Ok, we're ruined! My husband and I go on vacation and all we can think is..."We can't wait to get home and have some good coffee!" Not only is this coffee outstanding in flavor but and exceptional value! The service is fast and my emails have always been responded to with a personal touch. We have tried several that were amazing but New York New York and the Panamanian are so far our favorites. The personalized labeling makes it so great for gifts. Thank you Specialty Java for making mornings something to look forward to and evenings with your fabulous decaf so satisfying!"

Deborah Rowden
Siloam Springs, Arkansas

Margaret Giroux
Royal Oak, Michigan

"Next to knowing God provided another day, nothing compares to that first sip of Panama Boquete, mixed with a drop of heavy whipping cream! The aroma first delights the sense of smell while grinding the beans, but eventually, the whole body is charged, yet soothed, with the delight of that first sip! Mmmmmm. A grateful recipient of Specialty Java coffee."

Pam Kinney
Minneapolis, Minnesota

"I ordered the Kenya AA and Panamanian coffee. This is the best tasting coffee that I have ever had. I ordered the coffee on a Tuesday night and received it Friday afternoon.

"I couldn't wait to get up this morning and start the coffee brewing. The Panamanian I tried was great. My husbands comment was, "This coffee takes less sugar." What we were drinking used to be so bitter."

Jodee Bass
Minnetrista, Minnesota

"My brother Jim just called me tonight and is very impressed with your Panamanian coffee. He mentioned the subtle chocolate flavor and the rich aroma. I was proud to have sent him a coffee he truly appreciates as he is a man of high coffee standards. Thanks for helping me send him a gift he can savor in the truest sense of the word!"

Betty Hanlon
Saint Paul, Minnesota

"The Panama Boquete is very flavorful for a non dark roast, the Nicaraguan was okay, but not the flavor of the Panama Boquete. The Smooth Jazz sample I got was the best tasting coffee I've ever tasted in my life! I will be sure to get it on my next order."

Jerry Denton
Laurel Delaware

"Your Panamanian coffee is superb (and my hubby is a chef and pretty picky about his beans). Keep those beans coming!"

Bavarian Chocolate

"Fantastic Coffee. I purchased some of the Bavarian Chocolate, very fast delivery, can’t find a fresher bean and the flavor is great. I would like to know if there are any plans to create a double chocolate flavored coffee. I have been purchasing my flavored beans from a local market, I really enjoy the “Death By Chocolate” flavor they offer as it is a double chocolate, although I am not too crazy about the powder flavor it gives to the coffee. Please inform me if any plans are in order."

Hawaiian Kona

"Hello Kevin & Co., Just a note to tell you that I just received you Kona sample package and it is past my expectations! WOW… I was already a fan of your company but this is over the top. I will be ordering some more in the very near future. Thank You. God Bless You and Yours over the Holiday Season. Sincerely, Doug"

Douglas Reese
Scio, Ohio

"I recently purchased my first sample bags of both Jamaican Blue Mountain and Kona beans. I have to say, one taste and I understood what the fuss was about -- It was the best cuppa coffee I ever had! Everything else tasted bitter and watery by comparison, so now I am ready to buy a big bag."

Lauren Rapport
West Hollywood, California

"Your coffee makes my day, everyday! Excellent selection, great experience in tasting varieties normally not available at stores. My last purchase of the Hawaiian Kona was absolute hit, that coffee is simply amazing, not comparable to anything else I have tried so far"

Adam Bistram
Corona, California

"Your coffee has very good quality. I was stationed in Hawaii for 3 years and I enjoyed the taste of 100% Kona Coffee. Every since I was transferred to California I have not been able to find good Kona Coffee. Well while I am deployment I have to order my coffee through the internet. Normally I do not do that because I love good quality coffee. Well my Chief ordered from you and I think it is a very good quality coffee you produce. Thanks and I plan on ordering from you again."

Timothy Barbee
Port Hueneme, California

"Excellent quality. We have already finished the Kona and are now starting on the French Roast. Very difficult to find good Kona at a good price."

Joan Steck
Avon, Minnesota

"I ordered six samples and have tried two. The Hawaiian Kona: This was just as I had hoped it would be - exceptional. So many flavors from flowers, earth and water. Enjoy this one black. The Rock 'n Java: The bean was dark and oily but the taste was smooth and full-flavored with medium to high acidity and plenty of body. To me It is vivid and clean but to someone using coffee in their cup of cream and sugar - it needs to be made stronger."

Smooth Jazz Organic

"Organic Sumatran- what can I say? This roast rocks. A very tough decision for me between the Organic Smooth Jazz and this one. New York New York- I found this to be a decent cup of coffee, but didn't have much of a kick to it. Organic Smooth Jazz - This was very good, even at room temp !. I was impressed by the bold taste. It stood up very well in heavy cream (I use that only)."

KL Webb
San Antonio, Texas

"I have been looking for a coffee to replace Starbucks for about a year and a half now. They seems to have changed their house blend to house bland. I enjoy coffee that that taste like coffee, rich, smooth and flavorful and I found it in your organic smooth jazz. Thank you so much for finally giving me a cup of coffee I can look forward to!!! KEEP PRODUCING ORGANIC SMOOTH JAZZ AND I'LL BE A HAPPY LONGTIME CUSTOMER!"

Cathy Gallina

"My friends Doug and Karen Storey in Houston, Texas sent me a bag of the organic jazz as a housewarming gift. I just relocated back to Texas from Washington State and like great coffee!!!"

Constant Cravings Organic

"Constant Cravings" is the bomb!! Best coffee ever!!!"

Mary Beth Brown
Harvest, Alabama

"We just opened a wholesale account with you are very excited to have found your company. Our two top favorites of the 5 that we have ordered so far is Espresso Organico and Constant Cravings. WE will be trying more varieties to determine which we will use and carry in our new store. Thanks so Much, Anne."

Anne Marshall
Gainesville, Florida

"All the coffees I ordered are wonderful, particularly the constant cravings. Like the name I constantly crave it. Thank you. I absolutely love your coffees. I will definitely be ordering again."

Peggie Larsen
Pierre, South Dakota

Constant Cravings Blend: "This is a very drinkable, dark-roasted coffee. It seems to mellow a bit after the first few sips. The ending is quite smooth, with no aftertaste. This coffee is great by itself, but would also lend itself well to various coffee "drinks". Service has been exemplary since I became a customer. All orders have been accurate and very promptly delivered. Well done."

Nila Slaughter
Vienna, Virginia

Constant Cravings Blend: "Big, bold, rich, smoky, smooth, INCREDIBLE FLAVOR! Heavenly Aroma. Congratulations the "name" says it all. Upon opening the bag (which contained our usual "espresso authentico" & "sumatran") The aroma of the "constant cravings" is so desirable and intense, my wife responded by saying, "It makes me want a cup of coffee" (she is a total espresso drinker) and that at 4 'o' clock in the afternoon. Being one who enjoys the strong, dark beans, this blend is delightful. No, more than delightful, it is actually the only other sample I've tried that I would buy. I liked the smooth jazz a lot, but this is the best yet. I am continually astounded in the delivery time and service. How I can order it one day, and 24 hours later, from MN to GA it be in my hand? Amazing. Since finding you almost a year ago, we have bought no where else! Mega Kudo's and Jumbo Booyah's - I give it a 90 on the cupping form score."

Eddie Rogers
Kennesaw, Georgia

"We just had our first pot of Constant Cravings -- GOOD COFFEE - not bitter - no poor aftertaste -- I like the bags - all 14 oz , but seemed to be different amounts in some. Do you grind any ? GOOD service -- Quick -- fast e-mail replies !!!! Thanks John !!!!"

Bruce Brown

"Order arrived Thursday (shipped Monday). Have only tried the Java Estate, and found it to be excellent. Nice looking beans, evenly roasted, wonderful aroma, very smooth cup. Look forward to trying the Panama beans next. Good work."

Frank Darr
Missouri City, Texas

"I love your coffee and especially that I receive my order within 3 days of roasting for a great delivery price! With my Silvia machine and fresh coffee, I cannot stand any other coffee. I'm trying some of the samples you send to expand my horizons. I really enjoyed the Java Estate!"

Tanzanian Peaberry

"My favorite single origin and it has become my "regular" buy. Specialty Java keeps the roast light which brings out a lot of flavor. Probably the best peaberry on the market today. It is very forgiving of brewing miscues. Hopefully, it will remain on your offering list. It has been purchased numerous times."

Mark Botta
Parlin, New Jersey

"I have tested most of your coffees at home and on my coworkers and we all agree that the Tanzanian Peaberry is by far the best overall product so far, even above New York, New York and the overrated Blue Mountain. All your coffees are superb but this one going to be hard to top, at least for us in the Midwest!"

Bob Fehringer
Fairview Heights, Illinois

"I really, really, really like the TANZANIAN PEABERRY please keep it around."

Brian Brackeen
Ponder, Texas

"The lightness of the ground beans fills my Bialetti higher, floats in the first 2 splashes in the Melitta. And the flavor of all 3 types (NY.NY.Decaf, Tanzanian Peaberry, Espresso Italiano) had a softness and a depth which was surprising, wonderful, almost redefining what "coffee" means. Thank you."

John Hay
New Haven, Connecticut

"I've been searching for quality Tanzania Peaberry coffee for over 10 years. I'm quite pleased with the beans I received, the freshness of the roast, the ease of ordering and your request for feedback. Thank you."

Cinnamon Hazelnut

"I loved the flavor of the coffee. There is a harmonious blend of cinnamon and hazelnut, neither one overpowered the other. I truly enjoyed the smell and the taste. Nothing was as good as the first cup after being freshly roasted! Amazing product!"

North Liberty, Iowa

"I have to tell you I was so impressed when I got my order!! This was the first time I've ordered fresh roasted coffee & I couldn't believe the difference!! This may sound crazy but I was so surprised with the color, smell, feel of the coffee beans, I just couldn't believe what a difference these beans made!! I couldn't stop looking at them & smelling them!! And the taste is awesome...I absolutely love the cinnamon/hazlenut which is the flavor I've been looking for!! I am very happy with both flavors I got & will continue to order from Specialty Java!!"

Sumatra Decaf

"It is very difficult to find good, strong, high quality de-caf coffee at a reasonable price. This usually means I drink more caffeinated coffee than I would like to. I have now tried both your Jazz blend and Sumatra de-cafs and they are both EXCELLENT! The regular Sumatra caffeinated is excellent also. I will definitely order again. Thanks for a great product." Scott Jacobs Valley Village, California"We enjoyed your French Roast and Sumatra decaf. It arrived in less than a week."

Reginald Spittle
Mariposa, California

"Hi John, thanks for the info. I have enjoyed your coffee since the first order a few weeks ago. I'm so excited to have decaf with such a great bean as Sumatra with full-bodied ness. I get so sick of decaf Columbian which floods the market and for my taste it's so chalky and leaves such a dry aftertaste! Do you have a retail store? I have family in other states and didn't know where you are based. Thanks so much!"

Espresso Italiano Decaf

"We got the espresso machine a few months back and have been getting Starbucks but wanted organic which they do not have organic decaf espresso beans. You guys do and at a great price! Plus your website is so helpful seeing as how we are starting to learn about the espresso experience. So we tried a straight shot of Starbucks versus your organic decaf espresso. I'm pretty sure angels were singing. What I noticed was that Starbucks was very bitter and had a horrible bite. Yours was very smooth and rich. I never really noticed before because I also drink the espresso as a soy latte. Now my lattes are fabulous and I always look forward to the weekends because then I have time to have two instead of one. I will never buy anything else. Thank you so much."

Smooth Jazz

"Every bean provider talks about the balance of their blends, but this blend delivers it in combination with full body and wonderfully rich flavors. I haven't tasted a blend this good in years, and, believe me, I have been mainlining good coffee for a long time. If you haven't tried it, don't miss it!"

Bill Parker
Cincinnati, Ohio

"I ordered the Smooth Jazz and want you to know it is one of the best coffees I've ever had------MUCH better than Starbuck's--in fact I will not buy any other type of coffee from now on--you've got my business....."

Robin Schoenfeld
Pahrump, Nevada

"So far, NYNY and Smooth Jazz are outstanding in my opinion. The pure Columbian seems a bit mild mannered to me but good. Due to hurried and harried holidays, we have not tried the other two yet. Never had bags that were zip-lock as well as valved before... a big plus!!!"

Grant Gehlbach
Rock Hill, South Carolina

"My daughter works in the coffee industry, but I like this much better than what they offer. She brings me different kinds every now and then and we just keep coming back to smooth jazz."

Leila Cicchiello
Louisville, Kentucky

"All I can say is WOW! Smooth Jazz is just that SMOOTH, like a fine wine. I originally ordered some coffee varieties for my Father-in-law's birthday, then decided "I" needed to try it too. I received it today and must say it is EXCELLENT coffee. I previously bought my coffee from a Discount Warehouse store and found it to be inconsistent in taste. I am not a coffee snob, but I think you have made me one now! Shame on You!

Denise Alcaraz
Southlake, Texas

"I am an avid coffee drinker and love waking up to a good cup of coffee. I have never tasted coffee any better than what is right here. It gives my day a truly fresh start and when I have company the rave reviews are overwhelming. I have tried the New York, New York and the Smooth Jazz. The New York is my favorite so far although I like the smooth jazz also. The service in delivery is awesome and super fast. I am 100% satisfied with this coffee and you now have a steady customer. Again, thanks so much!

Betty Enger
Yorkville, Illinois

"I received the shipment of Smooth Jazz Blend! Incredible! I have been a Starbuck's coffee drinker for a long time. But I think I have a new favorite coffee. I usually drink coffee with a little cream in it to cut the usual harsh bite of strong coffee. I tried Smooth Jazz blend with out cream and it was great. No harshness or acid bite to it. Great blend."

Cindy Patterson

Linda Schnobrich
Waconia, Minnesota

"I just received my order last night and have yet to try the New York New York, but the Smooth Jazz blend was excellent. It's everything that I expect from specialty, fresh roasted coffee. Judging by the aroma, I'm sure the New York New York won't disappoint Also, thanks for the quick turnaround."

William Vosburgh
Las Vegas, Nevada

"Love the coffee. Will definitely be using your service from now on. Smooth Jazz is absolutely exquisite, very nice. The Jamaican Blue Mountain was very nice too! Tried the samples and love the coffee. Your prices are good and the beans are great! The aroma of a freshly opened bag is to die for!!"

Brian Brackeen

Lou Dilts
Littleton, Colorado

"The Panama Boquete is very flavorful for a non dark roast, the Nicaraguan was okay, but not the flavor of the Panama Boquete. The Smooth Jazz sample I got was the best tasting coffee I've ever tasted in my life! I will be sure to get it on my next order."

Jerry Denton
Laurel Delaware

"While the prompt response and ease of ordering are value features, the quality of the product supercedes all other aspects in my mind. The New York, New York type is very good, and I would definitely order it again. Our preference for our regular coffee is a strong, robust flavor just short of espresso (We travel in Europe, so we enjoy espresso also). Keep up the good work."

Carl Howard
Tucson, Arizona

"I am not a coffee connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination. I simply enjoy a good cup of coffee. My wife and I both tried New York New York and Smooth Jazz and thoroughly enjoyed both! We will be reordering soon. Thanks for providing a great product!"

Bill Stejskal
Fort Meyers, Florida

"This is the first bag of Smooth Jazz I've ordered. It is wonderful and I am very pleased with the coffee. I do believe that I prefer the coffee from Guatemala even better. I'm not completely sure why, but my first instinct is that the Guatemalan is a bit toward the mild side, yet maintains a lot of flavor. Still, I would order Smooth Jazz again anytime."

Charley Cameron
Haughton, Louisiana

"Wow, what a great cup of coffee! The first morning our kitchen smelled like a coffee shop. What a great way to start the day! We purchased Smooth Jazz and French Vanilla and we love both of them.

"I am really enjoying the Smooth Jazz & the New York/NY. The Velvet Soul is a little light for my tastes. I seem to prefer the darker roasts but I'm relatively new to coffee drinking even though I'm 57 in a few days. I'll be trying other types as time goes on as I'm very curious to see what the differences are."

The shipping right to our door is AWESOME!! It can't get any more convenient! Your prices are wonderful too! We have been referring you to other friends and family! Thanks so much!

Brenda Fischer
Minnetonka, Minnesota

"This is so cool. Our favorite of the three we purchased is the Rock & Java. We like kick ass coffee in the morning. The New York New York is second with and tastes better bur not as strong. Third we bought Paradise, which is how I found your site I was looking for the taste of a coffee I had many years back when I spent the Summer in Hawaii. Too bad Kona coffee cost an arm and a leg. Nevertheless this has been the best coffee we have had in as long as I can remember. Thanks and we can't wait to try more variety."

Both of the decaf are great it's nice to know that decaf does not mean flavorless the flavor and aroma are everything you could hope for and more. Thanks again for the great coffee and I look forward to the next order and the next......"

French Vanilla

"The delivery time was amazingly quick but I didn't get to sample the product until yesterday. I tried the French Vanilla and what a revelation. Good strong vanilla flavor with a sturdy coffee backdrop which is just what I was hoping for instead of the usual weak result of a combination. I'd venture to say this isn't just the best coffee but the best drink I've ever had. I'm scared to try the Bavarian Chocolate for fear of a pleasure overload, but rest assured I will. I will be ordering more. Thanks for your work!"

Sumatra Mandheling Organic

"We have been the beneficiaries of various whole bean coffees from friends over the last 6 months. We've had Starbucks and Caribou and PJ's. We recently reordered Specialty Java's organic sumatra after our months "cheating" on it with these other javas. What a relief to get back to organic sumatra. It is by far the most flavorful coffee of all we have tried. It stands up to milk or cream and retains its flavor. Keep up the excellent quality. We know we can't find better java - even if it's given to us!."

"Wow! I placed my order at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday and had the coffee beans in my hands before noon on Friday. That's truly outstanding for an out of state order! As the delivery man handed the package to me, he stated that he almost hesitated to let the order get out of his truck because it looked so good. I immediately made brewed a fresh cup - a little hesitant of ordering the dark roast beans, but the Smooth Jazz decaf was and is terrific. I'm looking forward to enjoying every cup and have already told friends about the quality and amazing service of your company. Thank you.

Julie Dally

"It is very difficult to find good, strong, high quality de-caf coffee at a reasonable price. This usually means I drink more caffeinated coffee than I would like to.
