My Grassetto beans arrived in sleek paper, air-tight, re-sealable bag. I genuinely appreciate that the bag is re-sealable with a zip-lock style. I've been drinking Grassetto for about two weeks and it has really grown on me. The first thing I had initially noticed was that it isn't as bold as what I am use to drinking. That being said, it is labelled as a medium roast, so that is to be expected. The taste is delicious and shares many similarities with a dark roast blend from Starbucks or Second Cup.
