I'm usually more of a light roast
person but I really liked this blend
Dark coffee with a fairly smooth finish. Brewed in french press
. Slight cherry
notes with caramel
. Good tasting coffee, a little darker than WE typically enjoy but a very good coffee overall.
Brewed in a french press
. Nice dark roast
. Bit of an aftertaste but still quite good. Drank it black and with milk.
Bold and strong flavors, but not bitter. The bold, dark taste is overwhelming and had to discern other flavors than a rich coffee.
On the bold strong side. Not a lot of nuance in the flavor profile.
A top fave of mine of mine received. Very bold flavor and whips into a latte nicely!
Solid dark, definitely "dark chocolate
." high on the savory
, body, bitter for me.

I love the rich creaminess of this one. chocolate
, toffee-notes, and bold. This is great with a splash of milk or as a latte
Upon arrival, the beans were too recently roasted. I waited a week and it was like magic, this is one of my new favorites as a simple espresso
shot taken straight. No milk is needed, but would also be delicious as a latte. Just give the beans 4-5 days after roasting to stabilize.
We have a light/medium roast
subscription, however, I ordered this dark roast
on a whim for something different. I loved this bag and was so sad when we went through it all! Very flavorful and delicious, will definitely order this one again in the future!
This one it great! Strong, amazing in a latte, and well rounded!
Was a good cup, nothing special about it but it wasn't bad.
Decent blend. Very dark just how I like it but not overly bitter. It didnt wow me the way some others did but solid all around.
Gave this as a gift as part of the espresso
gift box and recipient loved it!
A very quality espresso
& mixes well with all textures of milk. This is for the bold espresso
This makes a delicious 12 oz. latte. It is smooth and bold enough to come through the milk.
Beans are dark and slightly oily. They smell like hot chili peppers to me. espresso
shot alone tastes bold, yet smooth. Makes a really rich, tasty 12 oz double latte.
I'm not normally one to say "this coffee taste burnt"... but this coffee is the exception. I prefer my coffees dark, and I drink my coffee black. I like to taste my coffee... but this coffee doesn't suit me.
Not my normal choice but it is a nice bold cup of coffee. My favorite was iced
with a little half and half
Cannot go wrong here. The description is very accurate. Dark but not bitter.
Very deep coffee not too bitter very good balance of flavor
My absolute favorite! This is the one I always go back to. I grind the whole beans and then use it in my Keurig! I love the fresh flavor!
An excellent roast to use in an espresso
machine. Full of body and wonderful flavor.
Definitely a DARK coffee but not bitter. I used to drink coffee with my Grandpa who was ex Army, we still joke that the spoon would stand up in his coffee. This is not quite that strong and no where near as bitter or burnt tasting but a good wake me up. I love this tall, dark and smooth coffee.
Good coffee when made as a straight espresso
. Balanced, clean taste and good aromatics.
I use a coarse grind in my french press
. In this blend, the flavor that stood out to me was raisin
s. I don't particularly care for them, so this coffee wasn't my favorite. My girlfriend calls it "fruity
," but all I can taste is raisin
Love this coffee. It was my pick out of a number of samples that I received and remains a favorite. Great if you prefer darker and stronger tastes.
This was too earthy for us and may be better served as an espresso
blend. It was a little one-note out of the french press
. Not bad by any means, but dwarfed in flavor by the rest of the beans in our monthly subscription.
I thought that was great as an espresso
, and it made a terrific latte. Great way to start my morning. Would probably be a little too strong for a regular cup though.
This is serious dark....I love strong bold brews but this is DARK. Brewed in a chemex
. Definitely not for the novice coffee drinker. Prepare yourself for this one.
If you love dark roast espresso
s, then you will probably love Stemwinder Blend. Well balanced, but a little too overpowering for my taste. If you're like me and prefer light to medium roast
, then you probably won't want to purchase bag after sampling. *it was better the 2nd time a extracted a shot.
Strong but beautiful. Preparing with both french press
and you really cant go wrong either way
One of the darkest, velvety-rich, smoothest cups I've had. Stemwinder is a favorite!
Enjoyed this dark, smooth blend (used our aeropress
One of my favorite blends. I love the richness and sweetness of this blend!
I love a nice dark espresso
roast! This one is fabulous!
Great flavor and really not overpowering for a full bodied dark roast
. Flavor profile is definitely that of a dark roast
but finishes more like a medium blend. Great anytime of day with this complexity.
A less bitter dark blend. Quite pleasant with no milk! A good way to wake up.
Strong and flavorful, but not bitter. Easy to drink for a dark coffee, doesn't disappoint.
A classic espresso
taste, lots of chocolate
, probably due to the South American coffees in here, but I loved this, especially in a latte.
I used this in my Rancilio Silvia and it made the perfect shot of espresso
. Delivious and well balanced.
I like dark coffee but, I'm not a fan i have found of the espresso
roast. In my opinion on a drip coffee it seems a little burnt tasting.
Tried this one today. nice rich dark color. not too bitter like some other dark roast
s can be. i would have this again.
Solid dark roast
, bold and non-acidic. Wouldn't get again though.
best coffee! We are going to get more, great flavor and a great way to start our day.
This coffee is strong and flavorful! It keeps you going all day off one cup but makes you want another anyway.
