To be completely fair I typically don’t choose dark roast
s. That said I just couldn’t get past the unpleasant aroma as I tried it. No real notes stood out for me either on this one.
I loved the rich, spice complexity! It had delicious flavor.
We loved this coffee. Tasty!
Super easy, laidback medium-to-dark roast
. pour over
with cream made my afternoon! Not super wowed, but definitely a good one for the sampler.
I have tried other roasts from Lighthouse Roasters (highly recommend overall), and this is decent. The first sip was slightly bitter for not being a dark roast
, but the aftertaste is balanced.
Has a kick to it -- super good! The spice is very prominent. Used it in the french press
and it was great!
This is an amazing coffee and instantly became one of my favorites. Ground with a burr grinder and brewed in a french press
it created a beautiful crema: thick and slightly foamy. The coffee tastes equally rich and intense while keeping a balance among the spicy, chocolaty, and floral
notes. Loved it!
Fresh, rich flavor, this is a very good option if you cannot tolerate acidic coffee
Initially boring, but a few sips in began to enjoy it. Not dark enough for my liking but definitely darker than some, and very smooth with no bitterness.

I received a bean box for Christmas and found the Mocha Java Blend to be my favorite out of the box. Its a smooth taste that sits well and slowly drifts away on your taste buds as they are waiting for your next sip. I always guessed I liked darker roasts and getting this gift just solidified it.
Not an everyday Coffee, but one that is a nice treat on a cold day. Bright and strong. I usually shy away from anything Mocha but really enjoyed that this as it didn't come across syrupy and overly sweet. Lighthouse Roasters tend to put out good products and this is another one in their stable
It was very good for a medium-dark coffee. I prefer very dark coffee.
Decent one to be used with the mock pot. I enjoyed my rich, bold espresso
This was a good coffee, but the floral
notes were a bit too strong for me.
Mocha Javas are some of my favs! They always surprise and this is no exception!
Not a big fan of this one. It was very light and not the usual flavors I go for.
Didn't get any chocolate
from this blend. It was very light , thin, and bright for a dark roast
No mocha flavor, whatsoever. That said, this was the best of our first shipment. It's dark, with a well developed roast, leaving the bean glossy and aromatic. Most other coffees we got were dry and below-average. This one was great.
Loved it so much we want to get more. Not as much Mocha as Java, but that's how we like it.
spicy notes threw me off. It was not a horrible coffee but not to my liking either. Maybe as I try more, it will fool me and I will love it.
Nice, grounded, medium body with a substantial amount of spice and spiel. Well blended flavors.
Interesting combination of dark chocolate
, deep brown sugar
with a red wine
aftertaste. Higher acidity than expected with a dark roast
, full body— a nice complex blend I was glad was part of the box!
A very good, even though the flavors are very basic, cup of coffee.
My wife and I very much enjoyed this dark roast
coffee. We were gifted a monthly sampler package and prefer dark roast
coffee so we were very happy to receive this option. Very good with tasting notes true to taste. We would buy again.
Really enjoyable blend for us. This one surprised me a bit, but was probably the favorite of our box this month.
The complexity and slight sweetness won me over. This is a great dark coffee that I'm definitely adding to my list of favorites.
This one wasn’t super memorable for me. I wouldn’t pay premium price for it.
An exceptional dark roast
. Just what I want first thing in the morning
Less complex but still tasty, light chocolaty notes make it a nice treat.
made ice coffee with this, its excellent bold and smooth and smelled wonderful
Another good roast from Lighthouse. Could pick up the floral
notes when we opened and ground the coffee. Lost them a little after roasting. Still exceptionally good. chemex
Bold. Tasting notes were there. Flavors were almost equally present. Great for dark roast
This coffee is delicious! I'm not typically a fan of dark roast
s, but the spices that pulled through were fantastic! I plan on ordering more and think this flavor can be enjoyed throughout the year!
Brewed in french press
. One of our favorite roasters. Great strong coffee with deep dark flavor. Hints of fruit but overall deep and complex. Would recommend this coffee to anyone that enjoys dark roast
but does not want the burnt wood flavor of some.
I definitely picked out all the tasting notes: in each sip, the initial taste was surprisingly mellow (the fruity
part), then became rich and earthy, then finished by mellowing out again. The flavors actually became more pronounced as it cooled. Super interesting to taste! Made with a moka.
and spice flavors described really do come through in this coffee. This made for an interesting flavor.
Tasting notes: Deep dark earth with highlights of life and brightness. A wonderful and delicious blend. Made as double shot espresso
Fantastic Blend. Top 10 for me. Great rich heavy coffee. Goes well with a tad bit of coco when made with the french press
, it makes an amazing mocha.
Fantastic blend. A little boring but a great standby or something to keep coming back to.
Such a great blend! The floral
notes really bring a distinct/fresh aftertaste to this terrific blend. I'm really excited that I've found a floral
tasting coffee that I like!
I LOVED the floral
and spice. Great for the french press
. I have been happy with Lighthouse Roasters every time.
Great rich heavy coffee. Perfect as café au lait brewed as a french press
, almost tastes like a mocha.
Great coffee for breakfast. Definitely buying again!
A great classic cup of dark roast
coffee. Has a hint of floral
and spice. Enjoyable.
This was a bold, delicious roast. Perfect for the chemex
I'm not normally a fan of blends or Ethiopian coffees, so I was surprised at how good this coffee was! It was fresh, well balanced, and all around a pleasant dark cup of coffee.Not too oily either - while it was personally not to my tastes, for anyone that likes Ethiopian coffees it's a hit.
I didn't care much for this particular roast. The floral
and fruit notes weren't to my liking, but I appreciated the new experience.
