"Ethiopia Saris Abaya: I really enjoyed this coffee. Opening the bag, it smelled fruity, the taste of blueberry was very prominent in the cup also, then the chocolate emerged, then a little sweeter tangy taste, like more fruit. Overall, the coffee was very balanced, very little acidity, a nice mouthfeel, really aromatic with the blueberry and chocolate being the really noticeable flavors." -A. Scott, Austin, TX
"Costa Rican Hernan Solis's Villa Sarchi: A great coffee. Bold, Smooth, very chocolaty. A more earthy coffee, the mouthfeel is more grainy and lingers. A slight hint of orange and citrus, and more chocolate with some nutty flavors. Really delightful." -A. Scott, Austin, TX
“After tasting both Papa Lin’s best - Ethiopia Dry Process Saris Abaya & Kenya Nyeri Karogoto, I can hardly go back to other commercial coffee. I can’t help falling in love with the delicate, full-bodied, well-balanced coffee Papa Lin precisely roasted. I did not even need to grind the beans to note the fragrance, but merely open the package to be really satisfied. It’s just like love at first sight, and tingling in your mouth even after a sip in throat. What’s even better is that, as a micro roasting house, Papa Lin listens to and cares about what you like and is able to fine- and well-tune the taste for customers. I highly and wholeheartedly recommend Papa Lin to every coffee lover.” - S. Yu, Ph.D., Los Angeles, CA
"I don't take coffee much. I usually have coffee when I need good spirit to drive long distance. To me, coffee is just something to drink, nothing special. But Papa Lin's coffee beans are different. Taking the first sip of Papa Lin's coffee (Ethiopia Dry Process Saris Abaya), I'm surprised. The fragrance, the flavor, the taste, are unique. It's not like any coffee I've ever had. Papa Lin's beans makes me believe that coffee can be really amazing." - C. Chang, California
"I've known Papa Lin since he studied in UC Berkeley. For years he has been roasted coffee beans with passion and perfectionism, and he further excels by fine-tuning coffee bean tastes to meet individual preferences. Now I buy coffee beans from Papa Lin not just for my family, but also as gifts for my friends" - Stacy Chen, California
"I bought Ethiopia Dry Process Saris Abaya from Papa Lin. The fragrant coffee beans with mild sour flavor give constant sweet taste in throat once brewed. Quality roasted coffee beans, timely delivery and good customer service. I will continue buying coffee beans from Papa Lin." - C. Chen, Taiwan
