Prepared with a french press
. I personally did not enjoy this cup of coffee and will probably use my remaining beans in a personal blend. The taste was very similar to a cup of average coffee you'd drink in a diner. Not very bold, not very much of anything, just your average cup of coffee. Not terrible, but nothing exciting.
It had a stale taste. Similar to other whole bean coffees from Bean Box, Lighthouse was flat, bland and without complexity. Boring.
I received this sample in my first bean box and I loved it so much I purchased a large bag of beans! It creates a very smooth cup of coffee!
Good coffee, great flavor but not the bold darkness I was anticipating.
This blend was a stand out for me! The beans themselves are a glistening, velvety dark color, and the scent wafting from the bag had my mouth watering. A solid, bold flavor, with no bitterness, just one delightful sip after another. Really happy with this Roaster and they now are on my radar for future purchase.
I love that it has perfectly roasted taste- not too strong. It's a great everyday coffee! And I love the presentation of the coffee with my extras. So cute!
Not as dark as what I was expecting. It was ok, but nothing special.
not nuanced and to robust
A little too straightforward dark for me. A great diner coffee ☕️ though.

Excellent. Great bold flavor. Very smooth. Highly recommend. Money well spent.
This one was alright, not dark enough for my taste. Great for an everyday cup of coffee, but I was expecting something a little bolder.
This is my girlfriend's absolute favorite coffee! I was stoked it was offered.
I had this coffee in one of my first deliveries from Bean Box. I think I liked it more than I originally did, but it is missing some depth. It is a little too clean tasting if that makes sense.
A very respectable blend. Nice notes of chocolate
and a hint of nuts. My wife’s goto coffee in the morning.
I am usually not a fan of darker roasts because of the bitter aftertaste. This one is the exception, a bold coffee that is very clean and smooth.
I grind the beans with a medium coarse setting, mix 45 grams of beans with 750 grams of water. The brewer is a moccamaster. This gives me 2 large cups of coffee. I enjoy the flavor of the beans along with the aroma. I will definetly re- order another bag.
I have loved everything from this roaster. This coffee especialy has a nice smooth taste
I love the variety of coffees that Beanbox offers and I try different ones. I find myself going back and ordering the Lighthouse Roasters Choice the most. It is my absolute favorite.
I like my coffee extra strong so I use lots of coffee and usually that can for a bit of a bitter taste. This was not the case with this coffee. Great flavor and smooth to drink.
my favorite coffee roasters!
Solid four stars for this blend. I enjoy it and occasionally re order if I’m looking for some variety. It’s flavors are complex and nice. The only reason this is getting 4 instead of 5 stars is because I’m not a huge nut fan. Occasionally is fine but I did need to rotate this coffee with another to enjoy it.
I love this so much as a pourover
. It's bold and dark and I like this with 2 oz of warmed milk.
A bit bolder than we like. If you like dark roast
that's not bitter this is the one for you. The consistency was perfect, a clean finish
Just lovely, smooth and rich without being heavy. Its spicy afternotes are a nice surprise. And that dark chocolate
included in the box? Perfect
The beans smell great. It’s a good dark roast
. Seems like it would be most helpful keeping a night shift worker awake
This coffee blend stays super fresh for a really long time! I ordered a few too many and forgot about this for awhile and it still tastes like it was just roasted.
Really enjoying my Bean Box subscription! I can easily see Roaster’s Choice becoming my daily grind; just a wonderfully robust, yet balanced, coffee. Can’t wait for my next shipment!
Great coffee. Bold bit not acidic and smooth taste.
This coffee was strong and bold. Personally I like a little more of the lighter flavors, but I still appreciated the taste of this one!
I brew on a strong setting and normally like a medium blend, but this left a bitter finishing taste.... almost burnt.
ed coffee, hints of burnt brownie. Rich layered coffee flavor.
This is a great wake up and do things kind of flavor.
Very bold and flavorful. Recommended to those who enjoy similar flavors!
Very bold and tasty. One of my favorites!
this was marked as one up from a dark roast
, but to me this is an instance where the roast completely overwhelms the coffee. what I got from this is tar, burnt peaty whiskey, skunky pipe smoke, lingering carbon from burned damp pine logs, some sweet rubber amaretto, syrupy dry mouth feel. people say this is "strong" but it hits you with a rather base acrid flavor where caramel
ization turns to char.

This was one of our faves out of the box. It was my husbands favorite but not mine. I really liked it but I had another fave in the box. This one was good. Strong and bold. Great addition to our morning alternation.
This roast is very strong, which is what I prefer. I'll certainly get this again!
Reminded me of a bag of fresh Peet’s when I opened the bag: dark, oily beans. Flavor is rich and smoky
. Low acid. Nice dark roast
I love the taste, but I don't really know what clean tastes like. I can agree with bold and rich though.
Notes say, "bold, rich, complex and clean". I'll agree with the bold and clean-bright finish. It doesn't taste burnt. I like medium roast
s the best, but this was good for a dark roast
Luscious, complex, smooth, just yummy! I did not find it acidic, just bold flavor that sets you down easy.
So far this has been my favorite bean from beanbox! It’s smooth, dark and rich. Tastes great from a french press
. I stock up when I have credits!
Deliciously deep and dark. Oh my! This one is bold and smoky
with notes of dark chocolate
. It packs a punch, and it is oh so good. If you like dark roast
, I highly recommend this one. Yum.
I've always leaned towards dark roast
s and I agree with the claim here that it is bold but refined. The chocolate
y hints are nice and the aroma is pleasant
This is a good coffee but a tad too strong for my tastes. Rich and bold but a bit acidic for me.
A real classic dark roast
y, and even slightly smoky
. It is bitter, but restrained and smooth. Very little acid. The only thing I did not care for was the smell of the beans, which was distinctly musky.
This was a damned good roast. I don't tend to like coffee without sugar and creamer (yeah, yeah, I know), but this was really good black. Was even better with a splash of Bailey's will absolutely be getting more.
Very rich, fresh and most importantly non acidic. Here is tip, mix this with other blends and it will give you a very interesting buffer
I'd give it 4.5 starts, actually. Great every day brew. Dark, I don't like fruity
coffees, this has a hint of chocolate
. Been very consistent, too. Ordered many times.
