By Middle Fork Roasters

$17.25 Add to Cart

A little spicy, a little smooth: even the toughest cowboy has a soft side. And this is the coffee to match: Tough as Nails dark blend, roasted to order from Middlefork Roasters. This rugged, spicy cup is a blend of Guatemalan and Sumatran beans, for a big, rich, chocolate-syrupy body with a clean finish of black pepper spice. All the flavor of a classic dark, with Middlefork’s signature rich, nutty body. Giddyup! It’s one smooth ride.

Another one of our favorites. We love it in our brewer as well as cold brew. Very bold and slightly spicy. Nice an smooth!
Wasn't our favorite. Had a tobacco taste to it.
The name threw me off... but this is so good! Made in the pour over and added cream, turned out to be a medium-dark roast, slightly sweet, well-rounded cup.
The name had me pause, but I'm glad I had a chance to try this blend. I was expecting it taste a bit bitter and dry based off the taste profile, but I was delightfully wrong! I use a french press and found this to be a bold dark roast with robust flavor, but none of bitter/burnt taste I had been bracing myself for. I froth my milk and add honey to my coffee and it was so delicious!! The beans have a glistening sheen to them and I loved huffing their scent from the bag. Happily recommend this!
I really liked this coffee. It's dark with a spicy herbal taste to it. One of my favorites
This is the second time I ordered this blend. I really enjoy it's rich, dark flavor.
As is usually the case, a Bean Box dark roast strikes me more as a medium roast, but I have as unrefined a palette as you can have. Anyway, this was a nice afternoon coffee for me and my family in the chemex.
I really liked this blend. It was bold and perfect for an afternoon cup.
Really enjoyed this one. Got the best flavor out of the french press.
Bolder than most of the brews I order.Not your every day coffee, so it might not be for everyone. But If youre looking for a pick me up in the morning this ones for you.
