"I don’t taste any pear notes, though there may be a bit of nuttiness. I brew one admittedly large cup of coffee every morning, and I use a travel hand grinder. I use 67-75% of my 2 oz sample bags per cup and, often, the coffee still comes out bland. Perhaps it’s just because I prefer a darker roast, but this coffee is no exception. I will say, however, that with some oat milk added, the tea notes really come through quite powerfully. I just wish I could identify the pear notes!"
"I do not have the ability to decern fruits and nuts, but will say this coffee is very smooth, nothing funky and a pleasant morning brew. Makes my favorites list."
"Delightful surprise with lots of aromatics. An easy morning cup to welcome the day. Not overly sweet or acidic."
"Good coffee and I caught the nutty
flavor. Not as much of the pear but still an enjoyable cup"
"This is definitely a flavorful coffee, I just didn't like the flavors. Prefer something a bit smoother."
"Good morning coffee. Not sure I notice the notes that are indicated, but a nice coffee overall."
"A smooth medium roast
of seasonal ft and organic coffee notes of baked pear, rooibos and almond
"Baked pear and almond
sounded delicious in a coffee. However, I wasn't able to pick up either of those flavors, and least not brewed in a drip machine. Perhaps a french press
or cold brew
might have brought out those flavors. "
and pear are two of my favorite flavors so it was a treat to find them in this coffee"
"It was good coffee, but didn't particularly stand out - I wasn't able to tell the "notes of baked pear". "
"I am really enjoying this coffee (drinking it currently!) It has a hint of sweetness, but nothing over-the-top. No acidic aftertaste or bitterness. The first word that came to mind when I drank it were "delightful" - which I then noticed
was the exact same word the package uses to describe it. :)"
"I really liked this coffee, It was smooth and i enjoyed the nutty
"Not my favorite coffee, it was a little bland in my opinion. Brewed with a french press
and did notices some nutty
"Nice spice and nut notes! Smooth but with nice play. "
"I thought this coffee was ok, however, the last roast that we had from Ladro was far superior to this one. I brewed this coffee with my french press
and aero press and wasn't particularly impressed by any single flavor as nothing stood out to me. Smooth yes, flavorful...meh. "
"Tasted somewhat bland to me. Not a lot of flavor out of this one."
"Average taste - none of the flavors really stood out. Will add the rest of the package to our blend."
"Description of this coffee was good, aroma was good, but taste - I didn't like it. Maybe as Americano or espresso
it will be good but as latte - no. "
"The pear flavor was not my favorite. It took me a while to find the flavor. All that said it was smooth, might grind more beans than usual. "
"Decent coffee. Nothing really great though. Just ok/decent. "
"I really liked this as a morning coffee. It's bold but tea and pear notes were subtle. Great aroma while brewing! Would definitely buy again. "
"Wasn't too bad, but not overly memorable. Used a Bee House pour over
aroma of this coffee was really pleasant."
"The pear flavor was subtle yet extremely tasty. My boyfriend and I LOVED this one. The acidity was on point and the boldness of the coffee was appreciated."
"I drank this two weeks after delivery. Still good. I only grind right before the brew of course and I used a pour over
method. This coffee has a full mouth feel and would go great with a lighter pairing. The fruit and nutty
undertones make me want a fruit pastry or an almond
"I usually don't like coffees with fruit undertones, but the pear was a nice touch. Ladro always seems to have interesting picks!"
"Light, smooth, and clean. Enjoyed this one all the way through. Brewed the whole sample bag in a 10 cup drip coffee maker and served with half and half, the coffee stood up to the cream very well. I recommend. "
"Though I have not bought it from bean box I have sampled this at the actual cafe and it's awesome I love the light notes of tea and Berry I bet it's great as a cold brew
"I didn't care for this roast. Came out very light with high acidity. At first taste it was all lemon zest and earthiness. After reading the notes of rooibos I was able to distinguish the earthiness more precisely as rooibos notes. But I didn't pick up much pear flavor. A touch of cream helped a lot."
"Not my favorite. Quite earthy and spicy, but I prefer lighter blends."
"Great Morning Brew. Light body and flavor. I even get some hints of black tea. "
"We made this in a french press
and it was super light. We set a timer as we always do, but it just didn't come out well. It might be better prepared in a different way."
"This was one of my favorites in the batch I just received. Its nothing crazy exciting but a coffee I can have everyday and enjoy. "
"A light fruity
blend with a nutty
hint. It has a smooth finish. No additional sweetener necessary!"
"in the words of rick ross, "shout out to all the pear"!"
"I brewed this using a french press
. I found it to have a light mouth feel with a tea like after taste. It seemed high in acid to me. Overall, a decent cup of coffee."
"Wish I could give it 4.5 stars. Very smooth with both chemex
and french press
. The flavor is subtle, but I could drink this every day. I will try it cold brew
and expect the flavors to be more distinctive."
"Very good coffee, but not a standout for me. Smooth, but no strong flavors standing out."
"A very nice coffee. Smooth, flavorful, a great addition to our list of favorites."
"A good blend for breakfast--I really enjoyed the smoothness. Excellent black. "
"We made the coffee with a french press
, the roast was a little too dark for my taste buds. "
"This coffee tasted great on a warm spring morning. Very drinkable. I can definitely sense the pear."
"My favorite so far! i taste the almond
note in the description"
