I have received a shipment of both the medium and the light roast and both are phenomenal. Personally, I tend to lean more toward the light side but I can appreciate a good medium/dark roast. The bags arrive w/the roast date written which is a small detail, but one to appreciate none the less. There's always an email to let you know your subscription is about to renew and another when the product ships. Love this roaster and will definitely keep this subscription for a while. It's so convenient and, admittedly I know I'll sound ridiculous, but I can't believe I waited so long to sign up. Keep up the good work!
