I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my list of coffees to try. I've read nice reviews regarding this variety. It's sweet (juicy cherry) and has tangerine acidity. After combining with milk you'll get a malty milky chocolatey flavor.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

Been a while since I have had Southpaw, but it is my favorite coffee of theirs. The other blends that I have had from them have been fairly boring, while Southpaw was a nice sweet orange shot, not acidic at all just like a sweet starburst or something of that nature. However, it has been over a year since so ymmv.

 
Less water, more grounds.

Had it when I visited Philly and hit Elixir twice a day for my fix.  It's definitely chocolately in a latte.

I have been a fan of PTs roasting for years, and have recently tried their espresso beans, for my home set up.  the set=up is relatively new as is my pulling experience.  We have tried both the flying Monkey beans and the southpaw beans. After trying both for about a week, ive already ordered 2 more pounds of southpaw. southpaw has become our house favorite do to its distinct almondy chocolate smooth taste. It is a good pairing with our almond milk froth and we have enjoyed as a after dinner cocktail drink with baileys or kahlua.  Flying Monkey is a steady choice as well tough,  it tends to be less distinct and does not have the depth of taste that our house prefers.

I tried Southpaw last winter, it was almost $20 for a 12 oz bag in Canada. Sad to say I was quite disappointed and felt sort of ripped off. I didn't find it at all interesting. Maybe it was a bum batch but that's my two cents on one try, I won't be buying it again at that price.
