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.

This is a well roasted coffee. It's got some very bold flavors when brewed well, but I found it too dark for my tastes. If you want a dark complex coffee this may be for you.

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!

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.
