Brewed this in a chemex
as well as an aeropress
and it was delicious every way.
Much too light for steamed milk. Would not recommend for espresso
I have been wanting to try more light roast
beans and this was my first try. It is fruity
and refreshing. Definitely works well for summer season.
We love the refreshing flavor of this coffee. We usually go for dark roast
s with a bold coffee flavor, and this light roast
really surprised us!
For beans advertised as bursting with tropical
fruit flavor (a favorite of mine), I could not brew a cup that had anything but the most subtle hint of citrus
. Most cups were on the thin side. This isn't to say this was a bad cup of coffee. Overall, I found the brewed coffee very delicate and clean, just uninspiring. This does claim to be best for espresso
and I only tried it with a Kalita drip, aeropress
, and an Moccamaster autodrip. Results with these methods were similar, so maybe they just don't let the beans truly shine?
This is a great coffee with a classic light roast
flavor. But I'm still on the look out for actual floral
notes in a coffee. I've tried FOUR so far, all claiming to have floral
notes, and I can't taste them. But it's still a nice cup of coffee anyway.
Rich, smooth and just delicious!
This coffee is perfectly named, it does taste fresh and bright and I love the strong light brew!
A staple morning pick-me-up! My favorite way to start the day, one of the best light roast
s I've tried.

Boy I love Kuma coffees. This one was rich and fruity
with a classic coffee taste underlying it.
My family and I enjoyed this coffee very much. It made an excellent iced
coffee utilizing chemex
and brewing directly over ice cubes (factoring the weight of the cubes for extraction). I will be ordering more of this.
Love the light brew, but still very strong flavor! I have ordered it before and I really like it!
Good solid cup of coffee, and a nice light roast
. Prefer mine to have a little more depth of flavor- might be better in pour over
Smooth and fruity
, the berry and fruit notes come through well when had as an espresso
shot for a latte
Brewed in my french press
. This is a sweet and smooth coffee with notes of honey
and fruit. The taste description is very accurate.
Start my morning with bean box every AM from a gift subscription. It has a fantastic sweet honey
Tatar’s I can really pick out. Ordering another bag now!
The name is very accurate, bright is exactly the word that came to mind. Wonderful morning coffee, especially on some of the more bracing mornings here in New York.
Bright, smooth and an interesting finish. This is a fun pick me up
Good overall taste. I like how light it is. Perfect for an everyday coffee. :)
was very pleasant, enjoyed this very much
Unfortunately, too light and fruity
for me. I like a little colder and also seemed a little bitter. Maybe milk would help?
This was a nice, decent blend. Not sure I would order again but it was a nice switch. The honey
and banana really did come through at the finish!
This light roast
made a wonderful espresso
! The flavour was bright and fresh as advertised, with a smooth hint of fruitiness.
Great flavor! Has a bright unique taste! I used it straight in my espresso
machine and it comes out so smooth!
This coffee wasn't my favorite, but still had a good taste, not as bold as I prefer.
This is delicious! Nice and light and not overly roasty or smoky
We had it every morning with breakfast and it gave us that needed kick to get the day going! The different flavors all paired nicely together and made it a must have coffee! By far, one of our absolute favorites!
I do like a light roast
, but this one was really great. Loved how smooth and tasty it was, light tastes of berries/fruit. Another great Kuma coffee.
Surprisingly lovely. Has a hint of a sweet creamy flavoring, but the berry and citrus
are barely there. Very smooth and tasty tho!
The usual for a light roast
: weak flavor, not matter how many beans you use while brewing.
I used this as an espresso
. It's softly fruity
and bright, with a nice hint of sweetness.
Another great coffee. Tasting notes are definitely subtle, but definitely present. While most reviewers claim that this blend is best as an espresso
, our family preferred the chemex
Some people do not enjoy light roast
s because of lack of a distinct, bold flavor. This has both! Although still light, there is a beautiful strong flavor with notes of berry creeping up int the background! Bought a big bag so I could have more!
This was not bad. If it was supposed to be used as an espresso
, I did not get the memo. Brewed in my french press
, and was a normal cup of coffee. Enjoyed it though
Tasting a variety of coffees has been eye opening. To learn I love coffees with berry as a description is fascinating.
This coffee was absolutely fantastic. I drank a pot of this with a waffle and some fruit, and let me tell you, that was nirvana.
Great light roast
coffee with smooth but fruit finish. Tast s darker and richer than roast looks or is labeled. This is a great roaster and this makes a good cup of black coffee.
I made this into my own 36 hour cold brew
at it was fabulous. It had all the citrus
and buttery flavor you want in cold coffee. I did decide to take it a bit longer than the 24 hours cause it is such a light roast
and with a hint of cream it was just perfect.
Great coffee! The lightest roast we've tried so far. Could taste the fruitiness more than others we've tried. Really enjoyed this one.
I bought this bag specifically for espresso
brewing and absolutely loved it! Smooth and fruity
and paired well as a latte! Also brewed a couple pots of coffee in my trusty Mr. Coffee, this was a house hit!
Kuma has become one of may favorite roasters and I love their coffees. The flavors here a bright and fruity
, perfect for a daily cup. Brewed with a v60
Pretty subtle flavors - "soft and mellow" - honey
ed banana finish is accurate. (chemex
My go to every day coffee. Light and easy drinking.
I thought it had a nice floral
tasting note. It was fairly mild though. Did not have a super strong profile for the the overall tasting experience.
Very flavorful and light bodied coffee, great without cream or sugar!
Tried as espresso
and breve. Pretty average flavor, too light for me.
This was a very light but smooth flavor. We enjoyed it.
One of my favorite brewers, I love Kuma bear clause. Light buttery flavor low acidity and slightly citrus
