I used to always get the Benediction before the name changed to Matriarch Espresso Blend. I ran out and was unable to get to Chattanooga to restock. I was forced to buy a couple other bags of coffee (I won't rePeet the brand name) and it was OK, just not as good. I couldn't get the right grind size dialed in and the pucks would stick to my portafilter. I finally decided to just go online and buy a 2lb bag (I would've done this sooner but HATE paying for shipping - thanks a lot Amazon - although what I wasted on the other coffee I could've put towards the shipping). Initially I was disappointed because I didn't see my favorite Benediction blend, but learned that it had merely changed names. My first shots were perfect! So delicious and so smooth, took my butter pecan iced latte to the next level. Love, love, love the Mad Priest!
As an avid coffee lover still learning to use a prosumer home set-up, I experiment with a ton of different beans from all over the world. I keep coming back to the Matriarch Espresso Blend for its flavor, acidic balance, smooth aftertaste, and roast consistency. It has become one of my top favorites and I also love the company’s fun and engaging marketing!
Awesome Expresso Shots!!
I have the Benediction Espresso Blend on automatic re-order. It's the best I've found for my morning latte. Thanks, Mad Priest Coffee!
Best coffee, love it
