One of our favorites! Love the light roast
to switch up from medium every so often.
Very light, almost like a good tea...but the flavors are wonderful
I mean, it was fine? Bright acid, undefinable fruit. I wasn’t particularly impressed.
This is an extraordinary light roast
coffee. At first you think it is dark, but the finish is so smooth and pleasant. You get a little bit of both.
Super fun Christmas time blend. Good flavor. A little light for me but my personal preference is dark. That said, I’m a sucker for seasonal flavors!
We've been switching more to light roast
s these days and this didn't disappoint on the flavor profile! Loved the balance of fruit and spice- not a cheesy holiday blend flavor.
My favorite of the holiday blends. I am usually a single origin drinker but this is the first blend I liked enough to buy more
This blend was my first experience with any of the Bean Box beans about two years ago, and it did not disappoint! It is one of my favorites to this day. Smooth, medium blend with notes of fruit and pomegranate that really shine through. SO GOOD! I am excited it is back for the holidays this year.

This was a good cup of coffee. I couldn't taste the fruity
flavors but still very good.
Normally I am not really into the holiday blends, too much clove or nutmeg and cinnamon
for me, but this one was pleasant. french press
method or chemex
works both alike.
Not bad, but not great. And that's what's disappointing about it. As the first Month's delivery, I think I expected more that a ho-hum blend like this one, especially considering fine single-origins Beanbox offers. I brewed this one using a chemex
a few times now.
Like usual, I prepared the coffee using a french press
. It was wonderful! Smooth, yet bold.
Kuma was the first coffee I tried from BB, I was instantly hooked, and they did not fail with this one. Pomegranate flavor stood out, with mild spices and very mild, light chocolate
, mellow and smooth, easy on the stomach too.
I really liked this one.I loved the pomegranate flavor and smell, and just smooth taste. Kind of a creamy, light chocolate
flavor, with very mild spices. Definitely would buy!
It tasted like old sweet potato juice, not for me at all.
Good full flavor coffee. Notes of wine
fruit and spice. Brewed in french press
n d drank black. Very good roaster and decent holiday blend coffee.
Really a 4.5. A very delicious blend. It was smooth, rich, kind of fruity
y, with a very pleasant lingering aftertaste. Certainly had a chocolate
spice cake taste to it. Best holiday blend so far. Brewed french press
The flavors were light and mild. A little acidic for me, but overall tasty.
This was a little too light for my taste. It was very fruity
but the chocolate
didn’t really come through.
So good. Delightfully sweet and smooth, easy to drink. An excellent cup of coffee to warm you in the morning. (pour over
Delightful scent but the flavor is a bit plain, especially for a roast with so many notes.
This was a nice blend that I enjoyed from my Bean Box. it has a nice taste that reminds me of the holidays. This isnt necessarily my first choice, but it is up there as one of the favorites! would order again.
This light roast
was just what I needed to bring up my Christmas cheer! chocolate
and pomegranate came to the forefront of the flavors for me making me want another cup of the lovely brew! Thanks for a great holiday blend!
Me while brewing: Wow, this really smells like pomegranate, but maybe it won't taste that way. Me drinking it: Oh my god, it's literally just pomegranate. I had it with a cinnamon
roll and there WAS a hint of spice and cocoa
, but all in all, it's super fruity
. Very thin. Meh. Colder= fruitier.
y with a bit of spice, this is one of my favorite coffees ever, and one of my favorite parts of the holiday season.
Love this coffee; not too dark, but still a strong profile. Not a huge fan of acidic beans and these are the type I would definitely order again.
Nice blend with notes of chocolate
. I got really excited about the fig
notes and I while I did not pick those up completely they were certainly there to make my day a little better :)
Way too light of a roast for me, especially with all the fruit notes. I only made one cup and barely got through three sips of it.
LOVED this blend! The perfect cup of holiday coffee, especially when brewed in the french press
. It was rich with flavor and held cream well.
This coffee blend was very smooth and delicious. We will definitely be reordering when it's available!
I very much enjoy this holiday blend. A nice mix of fruit and spice with a smooth, rich finish. I'll be picking up a bag next time it comes around. Brewed with a v60
made in the french press
, this is full of flavor and doesnt seem at all like a light roast
! just the smell of the ground beans was tantalizing and surprisingly, it doesnt disappoint with the spices in the flavor. a new favorite for me! too bad its seasonal...
Very light and smooth. Definitely fits the holiday theme. I liked a lot for the colder season, but do not see myself drinking it when it gets to warmer weather.
A good coffee, not my favorite however. Could taste the cranberry flavor which was surprising
2017: (3.5) Tastes like a darker roast. Description is accurate. (chemex
) 2018: Is it a different blend? Unsure. Description is similar, though also includes "spice cake" - thought it tasted better anyway
This one is my least favorite of all the coffees so far - it just has a weird after taste to me, can't really put my finger on it, but just not a favorite at all.
This is one of my favorites. I wasn't expecting to like the pomegranate flavor as much as I did but it was delicious
This was a mild roast coffee. Nice, mild body, but none of the flavors stood out. Brewed in a french press
Tastes as described nice notes of raspberry chocolate
I love the note of cranberry in this one. A great coffee for the holidays!
This was really good and perfect for the holidays!!!
I love strong and flavorful coffee. This was one of the best coffees I have drank . . . . ever. I will definitely be gifting this coffee for winter
I was not expecting to be a fan of this one, but it was super yummy!! I loved the tasting notes.
Got this in the sample box and it was one of the best. Festive fruity
holiday roast without being overwhelming or sour.
Nice obviously fresh coffee, received in a monthly sample. We are generally dark roast
drinkers so it was not surprising that we were not overwhelmed by this particular coffee. Brewed with french press
. Tasting notes are true to taste.
Unique blend...A nice addition to a good Kenyan coffee. I was hesitant after reading the description, but it turned out to be surprisingly good. One of the best monthly coffees I received all year.
This is my new favorite coffee. Nice amount of both citrus
This was a little too acidic for me to enjoy it. The tasting notes are true to form, and the coffee was evidently very fresh and good quality. I just tried something different and it wasn't entirely for me.
