Curator's Notes

With tasting notes of cherry cordial, chocolate truffle, and almond nougat, the crux of the matter is: this blend is fantastic! We’re excited to share Rainier Coffee’s Crux Blend, a medium roast breakfast blend with big, fruit-forward notes of cherry syrup balanced by smooth, nutty chocolate tones. With a touch of cream, the flavor in this mug opens up into Neapolitan ice cream. Double scoop, anyone?

Roaster's Notes

Crux Blend is our lightest blend designed to highlight the most vibrant coffees of the season. We select our most unique coffees from East Africa and Central America to make a dynamic and fun profile. Crux shines as a filter coffee & as an espresso. Crux features semi-sweet cocoa characteristics with a smooth fruity finish.

"I’ve made this coffee in my espresso machine, pour over, and drip. It’s absolutely amazing in a pour over, the cherry notes shine. It was great in my espresso but I enjoyed it enough that I save the majority for a drip or pour over black. "

"We hated this one as well as last month. It's pretty boring and typical for a dark roast which is our least favorite kind. We ended up switching to medium roast despite enjoying all roasts because the dark roasts have been too chocolate flavored and too dark. I thought curators choice would alternate but this is so close to breakaway blend I don't see the appeal. Giving the bag away like the last month "

"This was my first coffee received through my subscription and my second coffee from Bean Box. I wouldn't normally gravitate to a medium coffee (love dark), but this was delicious. You can definitely taste the cherry, as well as the other flavours. There's a slight tartness/sourness (without being really acidic) that actually didn't turn me off. I normally don't like that flavour profile when it comes to my coffee, but the taste was lovely! I am about to finish the bag tomorrow and would happily reorder it. I've been looking forward to drinking more each day and have had extra cups, even. I'll miss drinking it, though I look forward to trying what's next!"

"Makes a great shot of espresso. Let it rest for about 3 - 5 minutes, and you'll really get some delightful cherry notes."

"For some reason, the first time I made this, I thought it was awful, but it's been god ever since. Maybe I just made it wrong"

"A true chocolate with a hint of cherry treat."

"I thought I would love this based on the description, but alas it just wasn't for me. It had a strange acidity to it which I don't get very often with french press, and it had a smokiness that seemed pronounced. So, if you're into that, this may be a good choice for you!"

"I don't drink espresso straight up, but in a latte, this was delicious! I loved it!"

"The beans were tasty. I did not taste the cherry as much as I would have preferred. "
