I love the smell of this dark roast
in the morning, it wakes you up before you have the coffee!
Decent sip all day blend. Not too heavy, just right. Slight bitter taste with little sweetness hints.
this is exactly how I like my coffee. Dark and earthy but not burnt tasting.
Love it. Delicious.
I guess I wish I still had a french press
, but I don’t. I used a pour over
for this and found it to be a very pleasant, deep coffee. Dark flat verging on burnt but still flavorful and not bitter, it reminds me of Peet’s.
I loved this blend. It was a great combination of rich and smooth, perfect for sipping during my morning commute.
This was rich, delicious, satisfying and the steamed milk complimented it very well. I enjoyed the rich, bold flavor. This is right up my alley!

Very nice coffee, love the smell when you open the bag. Beautiful bean color and strong dark roast
taste, not bitter.
I have found that my favorite coffee beans are the ones that are dark shiny with coffee oil right out of the bag. Good rich coffee flavor.
I actually really liked this as an espresso
. Pulling this on an Iberital machine. Not super bold and mellows out really nicely as a cappuccino.
Love this for an everyday cup! Definitely detect the earthy notes. Smooth, not bitter at all. Happy with this one!
This is one of our favorite roasters. This is a really high quality coffee, roasted in a relatively straightforward manner. Really excellent.
Not bad for a classic cup. Not very interesting though.
Fonte Coffee Roaster has definitely improved over time, I cant say I loved them at first but now they're in a place that I would revisit. The Portofino Blend was the change for me. It was something new and exciting in a landscape of either too many flavors or too many one note coffees this stands ou
Wow. This brew has so much body my press was overflowing. Very good.
This was a pleasant, smooth cup of coffee, but I prefer a darker roast.
Light and earthy. No particular tasting notes stood out. Made in french press
and drank black.
This coffee has great flavor but the roast was just not dark enough for me. But all in all I enjoyed the coffee
and aromatic! Not too earthy, but just right to bring out a velvet dark, spicy smoothness.
This was one of our favorites and we will buy this blend again.
It has a smooth start and finish. I feel it goes best with an early morning pastry!
Great coffee not to overpowering but bold. The earthy and herbal
notes were light which was very good.
Coffees like this reminds me why I joined and love Bean Box. Savored every drop coming from my french press
I don’t really like the more floral
and aromatic blends, but this one didn’t overpower the coffee as much as others I’ve tried.
This bean is really aromatic. Enjoyed this coffee drip.
First coffee from Bean Box. Initially, I thought the roast was a bit light for me. It had a very noticeable dry and earthy aftertaste. After a few more sips, it began to get markedly better. There is definitely a dryness to this coffee but it is not a bad thing. Similar to a dry cabernet.
It is a good cup of coffee but nothing to write home about, just okay. Brewed with a french press
We brewed it in a percolator and it was the perfect dark morning coffee. I can’t do caffeine at night but it would be nice paired with an after dinner dessert. Robust with a very nice smooth finish.
Not extraordinary, but a good morning cup of coffee. Very bold dark roast
4.6 / 5 - Complex nose: Earth, Berry, Vanilla, Creamy. On the tongue, this blend develops its --very-- complex profile with notes of BOLD earthy cream, berry, and oak. Very good.
Earthy, dark, bread. Light mouth feel, slight linger, but clean. No fruit here.
Absolutely adored this in the french press
. Had a great earthy taste that I kept coming back for. Made this in the pour over
as well, but as stated, it was best in the french press
which is my preferred method.
Always use a french press
to make these coffees... can't complain. The herbal
/earthy notes aren't really my thing but I still enjoy the cup of coffee that it makes.
NIce and smooth taste. Full-bodied. The aroma when you open the bag fills up the room, and the flavor pretty much follows that.
I brewed this with a drip/cone filter. This coffee is just dark enough that there is no sour taste that so many medium roast
s have. Nothing fancy, but a solid coffee.
It wasn't "bad" but it had a strong aftertaste like smoking a cigarette, which I really didn't care for. Not for me.
This is by far one of my favorites that I've tried. Pleasantly smooth, rich and earthy. Used a french press
with a little cream and it was wonderful.
This is a smooth dark roast
that had the feel of espresso
. With a bit of cream it took on latte feel. If you like dark roast
this is definitely for you.
This coffee immediately brings up the feeling of my favorite coffee shop. This dark blend woke me right up, and I know that darker roasts have less caffeine than light ones, but something about the deep, bitter flavor just really gets you going. Enjoyed as espresso
on 9/23/17 - roasted 8/7/17.
Great coffee. Dark and not overly complex but good earthy flavor. Great roaster, we have enjoyed many of the coffee's from this roaster.
A little bold for me, but delicious! Drip brewed with a little cream added was perfect! Good dark roast
Great flavor. I really enjoyed it with a little cream very smooth
Rich a nutty
blend. Also very smooth. If I get this again, I will use the french press
as recommended by many.
This is an ideal coffee for Autumn. Upon grinding, you get aromas of freshly cut cedar and bbq chicken. In the cup this coffee shines at a more concentrated ratio of 15/1. Dark chocolate
notes predominate and linger on the palette while the earthy spice known to Indonesia round it out masterfully.
Great coffee, brewed in my moka pot and it was a great start to my morning!
A great french press
coffee. A bold dark roast
that won't disappoint, especially with a very smooth finish that will have you refilling your cup.
Another coffee that's great with a french press
. Definitely try it with one over the chemex
As someone else noted, this one is smooth and balanced. I really enjoyed this roast when brewed in the french press
