"Not at all a dark roast
. This one was medium at best (not just by color, but also by density). Nothing like advertised. I used a pour-over, french press
, and siphon to try different brewing techniques. Very disappointing. :-("
"“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, And folks dressed up like Eskimos.” We sang this song while sipping this joe. Really enjoyed the nutty
flavor. Almo$t like nuts roasting on the hearth. "
"Brewed with Moccamaster, this coffee had lush, velvety texture and you could taste the toasted marshmallow! "
"Love just about anything from this roaster."
"This one was ok. Had dark roast
flavor, but not something I would order again."
"This was my favorite out of our tasting box. Good spice and molasses notes. "
"Very good flavor, I would reorder! "
"Probably the first dark roast
that I have ever been able to pick up real flavor notes on. While drinking this morning on a walk I picked up on molasses and a nutty
flavor. Maybe even a little spice. Two thumbs up!"
"This is my second receiving this in a box, and it's just as nice as I remembered. Nothing special, but a nice well rounded darker cup of coffee. No complaints"
"I love this roast that definitely exhibits all flavor notes described. I have found that it keeps its wonderful flavor when prepared in drip brewer, pour over
or french press
"This was a great coffee! One of the first we tried with Bean Box. It was very smooth and had a great flavor. Would definitely order again once back in stock."
"I have ordered this coffee before. It is a real favorite of mine! I wanted to make sure I have enough of this seasonal favorite before it goes away."
"Nice taste, robust! Would order again."
"Good... but almost tastes over-roasted. I oddly prefer the aftertaste to the actual flavor while drinking on this one."
"Too much sourgrass taste."
"Little too weak for me. Not bad, just not a favorite. Cannot love them all."
"Smells like propane when just brewed and still black. Pretty acidic. Slight burnt taste. Added some oat milk and now it tastes like milk chocolate
. Solid but not my favorite."
"We thought this had a lovely taste and would try it again. Thanks!"
"Really nice flavor. Enjoyed this roast very much and would totally get again. "
"I like dark coffees and though no particular notes stood out to me, I thought it tasted good. Not burnt tasting and no bad aftertaste"
and smooth coffee. I accidentally oversteeped it (~8 min) but it was not too bitter. If you like nutty
coffees, this one is for you. If you are more into fruity
Ethiopians, feel free to skip."
"Its a perfect breakfast coffee. A great blend of flavors that leaves you wanting more."
"This Fireside roast is such a winter pleasure that this is my second reorder!"
"I liked it, A LOT! I will probably end up ordering it again! :) "
"I just love the nutty
, slightly spicy taste of this roast. It delivers a cozy, satisfying taste reminiscent of Christmas smells and flavors."
"This was tasty, but more a medium roast
than I expected. It was a bit acidic for my taste, but still good. Solid 4 star, not dark enough for dark roast
"This was a great blend, I loved the nutty
and slight spicy taste that I got from this coffee."
"I usually like the blends that have a nutty
flavor and this one did not disappoint. Very good "
"This was a nice dark bean. Slight spice was not over powerful and overall balanced. "
"This one was amazing. Loved the mellow spices, nutty
, molasses flavors. I would order this coffee all year long, although this coffee would be perfect with ginger
bread men and molasses snaps. "
"Very good, not a whole lot of deep or overwhelming flavor, but a mild mix of nutty
spices, in a medium bold roast. It was easy to drink and paired well with creamer. "
"Perfect blend for this time of year. Served it to my family in town and they loved it as well! Great example of how a good coffee can taste. "
"Good darker roast coffee. Full floor with medium acidity and aftertaste. Brunt sugar and nuts, good fast from good roaster. Typically enjoy lighter roasts but this is a very good dark roast
"Quite a good cup of coffee, but verges on a 3.5 for me. I liked the kind of strange tastes to it which could be what the allspice and chestnut refers to. It complimented the nutty
notes well. Brewed french press
"I really liked this. Very full-bodied. Nice and dark without being bitter."
"Excellent dark roast
with a comforting wallop of flavor. Really enjoyed it in my french press
across three cups drank in short order one morning."
"This was delicious! It would have been even better if I hadn't of burned my tongue the day before, which my tongue is still recovering from. Smelled SUPER like molasses when brewing. However, tasted more like chestnut and a little cocoa
. Made hot with a french press
"I really enjoyed the hint of spices! Such a great roast. Excellent with a splash of milk!"
"A amazing syrupy cup! I tried this in an espresso
maker and as a french press
and it holds up in both. Add just a dash of brown sugar
, cream and cinnamon
and you have the perfect winter pick me up! "
"This may be my favorite coffee that I've gotten from Bean Box! It is mellow but robust; very easy to drink and comforting. Definitely pick up on the nutty
and spice notes but neither are too overwhelming or distinct."
"Smells like molasses but just tastes roasted (chemex
"I liked the spice in this coffee. Definitely enjoyable on a cold day."
"I enjoyed this blend with a book on a snowy day. It was perfect and is one of my absolute favorite roasts! Very dark, heavier taste. I highly recommend it!"
"I haven't found a Laredo Roasting one I like. This was better than some of the others but still did not like it"
"This was a good coffee in a moka pot, but great as an espresso
. The moka pot resulted in a spice and faint chocolate
y and nutty
note; I would have liked a stronger nutty
taste. The espresso
had more of a sweeter chocolate
y taste and was excellent by itself, decent as a latte. Would recommend."
with molasses finish gives the best feeling of a good cup of coffee for the cold months. Wish I would have been faster to getting a bigger back. Delicious!"
"A nice nutty
, dark roast
with a pleasant level of spice. Brewed as a pour-over with a v60
. A tasty cup of coffee on a cold winter morning! "
"Fantastic coffee overall. A tad more bitter than I typically favor, but the flavor profile made up for it. It's a nice dark roast
to enjoy on a cold winter day. "
"This coffee was a little too spicey for me. I wouldn’T want it in the morning, but it might be a nice complement after a winter dinner with your dessert."
