Bean Box Breakdown

Melted butter aroma, smokey cocoa-nib flavors and a final uplifting tang of vanilla extract. The lack of fruity notes mean this coffee stays low to the ground, pleasant for all manner of medium- and dark-roast fans.

"Mostly cocoa/chocolate to me, would have liked more toasted hazelnut and vanilla to come through. Solid medium-dark roast. (chemex)"

"Pretty good blend, loved the hints of hazelnut. The hazelnut made it stand out and be a great coffee to drink every morning! "

"A good dark roast. It provides a good bold, nutty flavor. "

"Very smooth flavor... paired extremely well with the almond biscotti that came in the "coffee+biscotti" set! Even after my coffee sat for a little while there was no bitterness. Great cup of coffee! "

"This coffee was selected as part of the biscotti box I sent for mother's day. It was a perfect gift!"

"This is hands down my favorite bold roast so far. It just makes an excellent, solid cup of cup. Creamy smooth but darker than the Cream & Sugar which is my favorite all time light roast. I come back to this roast over and over. "

"Purchased for my husband who doesn’t know or care if he’s drinking Dunkin Donuts coffee or a cup of Jamaica Blue Mountain. Overall I was unimpressed, it has a smoky flavor with a tiny hint of cocoa, but it’s perfect for my husband because that’s just what he likes. "

"Excellently smooth. Suave. The Queen of coffees. Would buy again!!"

"My Dad was worried that the hint of hazelnut would cause him to not like this coffee, but he found it subtle enough that it did not detract from the flavor. He liked it enough to want to purchase it again!"

"This coffee was incredible! I truly loved this cup of coffee. It is so mellow, yet dark and bold at the same time. It is smooth with sweetness and no tartness. Very rich and gourmand like. A great cup-o-joe! This was among some of the best coffee I have sampled."

"I loved this coffee! I drank it in the mornings, but it would be great after dinner too. "

"LOVE Melted butter aroma, smokey cocoa-nib flavors and a final uplifting tang of vanilla extract. The lack of fruity notes mean this coffee stays low to the ground, pleasant for all manner of medium- and dark-roast fans."

"loved this blend - a little bitter for my taste, but still an amazing well-rounded flavor."

"Oh my goodness!!! What an amazing blend. So smooth and easy to drink!!!"

"Though it did not appear as bold and dark as I would have enjoyed it to be, this coffee is delicious and smooth. Anytime you give me cocoa and vanilla...I cannot complain! And add a nutty toasted flavor...and you have yourself a morning winner!"

"This was a fine blend, but it was a little too smokey for me, which really overshadowed the cocoa and nutty flavors I expected."

"This did not strike me as a dark roast blend. I thought the flavor was nice but more for a medium coffee."

"Pretty Good roast, I can taste more hazelnut in this one. I did find it harder to blend."

"I usually like med/dark blends, but this one was a little too light when prepared as a pourover. It made a great coldbrew, though."

"My husband and I absolutely loved this coffee. Their tasting notes are true, and it makes for a very smooth cup of coffee. We love darker roasts with fewer fruity notes and this is exactly that. We use a french press. "

"Interesting blend of cocoa, vanilla, and hazelnut. Very smooth. Great morning coffee! Made it in our french press. My husband and I, both, enjoyed the flavor."

"Wish it were darker, but enjoyed the buttery vanilla taste of the coffee. "

"Absolutely loved this one! Very smooth and not bitter... even if you're not normally a black coffee drinker, I can't imagine adding anything else to this- it's that good. Got this in a sampler pack and I plan to buy larger bag! "

"This coffee is absolutely amazing.nothing I've ever drank compares.if u enjoy a dark roast this is a must have.bean box is the best.theres no coffee subscription service out there this good."

"I'm in the middle of getting the 6 month subscription and this was in this months box. This coffee was FANTASTIC!! They are not lying saying it has a buttery finish! Will definitely be purchasing this coffee!"

"This coffee is by far my favorite. It's dark, but not bitter and the lack of fruity notes makes it the perfect flavor profile. "

"Smooth, tasty. One of the better coffees I've received. Can't really taste the vanilla or hazelnut but it was really good nonetheless."
