"Wonderful flavor of spice, fruit and bittersweet chocolate. Has a great aroma that my husband and I love. Another coffee that I could drink every morning. Will order again."
"Absolutely hated this. Too smoky. Just not for me. "
"Strong coffee, with notes of tobacco and chocolate. First time tried it in french press, it was too strong for me. But in mocha pot with a little bit of sugar... it was great! It will be a good choice for dark and strong coffee lovers!"
"Got this in a sampler and it was my least favorite, but that's probably because I don't like the flavor or scent of tobacco. Still good but a little too much going on for me. "
"This one was alright, if a tad boring. Used a Bee House pour over. "
"When brewed in my drip coffee maker, this coffee is a bit too bitter for my liking."
"This is a great, strong blend. Really a good way to kickstart the day!"
"This was an extremely strong and bold coffee. I enjoyed the power of the coffee."
"Not my favorite. Heavy spice and is reminiscent of a dark roast. Was not bad just not my type."
"Brewed this cup of coffee in a pour over & it was smooth without any bitterness, but didn't care for the tobacco flavor. I would call this coffee a medium-dark roast because it had more of a smoky taste to it. "
"Quite aromatic, great after taste. Highly recommend"
"I love the way this coffee smells! It was spicy with just enough sweetness."
"Wasnt the greatest, wasnt the worst. This one just didnt seem to work well with the whole scheme of the spices. "
"Rich in flavor notes but nothing crazy. I just got a basic coffee out of this. pour over"
"This was a good coffee, just not my particular cup of tea if you will. Wouldn't want to have it again, but if you like coffees with fruity notes you will like this one. "
"For a lighter roast (for my preference), it was ok but I would lean towards other options. Medium grind / french press. "
"I can see why some folks didn't have favourable reviews, but this was my favorite out of my medium and dark roast sampler! My initial taste of it I didn't enjoy, but after that, it was a rich, complex flavor with lots of different "notes", including a slight smokiness/tobacco as described. "
"I use a coarse grind in my french press. I enjoyed drinking this, but wouldn't go out of my way to have it again. "
"I read other reviews about people saying this was more a dark than medium roast. Compared to the other dark roasts that I normally drink, this is for sure a medium roast. I thoroughly enjoyed this coffee and would recommend that you try it."
"Received this in my monthly subscription. I would not call this a medium roast at all. The beans were very dark in color, and the coffee tasted burnt and bitter."
"Love this coffee! Rich but so smooth. Cant get enough of it in the morning"
"So here's the thing. I recognize I might just be a taste outlier, but I really haven't liked anything Fonte has roasted. This is my second round of Fonte beans - I enjoyed more than the last one, but still. It's so dark, it has a burnt, bitter taste to me. It's just unpleasant to my palate. "
"Fonte does it again. Havent tried a coffee from them i havent loved! Truly delicious"
