i ordered this item on around 18th August and the production/roast date was 15th of August. I was quite impressed with the freshness and the beans also smelled divine. Taste is great too, though i'd say it has a slightly weird citrusy aftertaste. The packaging is a good quality and it fully seals up to keep the beans fresh, it is quite a tight seal and i've thought a couple of times that it might break when pulling it apart but it's holding up quite well.
So, I won't lie, this coffee is really, really good but it isn't as strong as I was hoping. I think I need to play around with how I'm brewing my coffee because a higher coffee ratio drowns out the subtler flavours. Anyway, looking forward to trying more!
