The label says that this blend "tastes like coffee." I think that's the perfect way to describe this medium brew. It's nothing special, no exciting flavors, I can't taste the chocolate
. But it's a decent cup of coffee that's pretty smooth. It requires cream and sugar, in my opinion, so perhaps that elucidates its name.
Is coffee reminds me of wrapping up in a warm blanket. It’s comforting and creamy. Berry notes burst when opening the bag and when brewed seem to enhance the chocolate
notes. Pleasant mouthfeel. Delightful to sip. Made v60
Decided to make mine as a pour over
as an afternoon pick me up. What a great cup of coffee ☕️! Rich. Smooth. Creamy. Almost like a light dessert that is not too sweet. I’m sure many more cups of this roast are in my near future! A new favorite for sure!
Very nice sweetness......not a favorite for me though.
Excellent flavor and pairs well. Although I wouldn’t add as top 3, it will make it in the rotation. This is a good cup to take as the first cup of the work day.
Excellent! Smooth way to start my day. Good to the last sip.
This is our favorite coffee from Bean Box! Smooth, creamy & delicious. Thre perfect morning pick me up!!
It’s my favorite I’ve had from Bean Box so far

Was not bad but didn’t really stand out compared to some of the other ones I’ve tried through beanbox.
I go back to this coffee time and time again. It's well-balanced, has a good mouthfeel, and very versatile. I usually make a batch in a drip pot, but I've enjoyed it from a french press
and a chemex
in the past, as well. I think it's one of the perfect morning cups.
This has become a favorite of mine for a morning off. It's a relaxing cup of coffee when I don't need to get up and go.
It is creamy and smooth which I like. At the very end there is an acid taste which I feel on the sides of my tongue.. My preference is totally smooth. I like Columbia del Campo better.
This coffee really matched the advertising - it's a coffee that just tastes like a really nicely balanced everyday drinker. Light to medium body, subtle chocolate
and graham cracker notes, and a pleasant bright finish that comes out more as it cools.
This is my go-to when I want something good and uncomplicated and generally to not over-analyze every sip. Very smooth, has a bit of sweetness to it. I make in a french press
but I can see this working well in a drip coffee maker. I think I'll go have some now...
Absolutely love this smooth creamy blend! It does goes great with actual cream and sugar.
Love it! Can’t go back to “store-bought” coffee after having these.
If you are knowledgeable about baseball history this coffee is my Tommy Henrich or, how he was known, Old Reliable. It is consistently superb whether you drink it black or with Cream and Sugar.
Didn't receive my order till 2 weeks after roasting so, especially with the heat, hard to say how fresh it is. But a decent kind of silky caramel
taste to it with a slightly acidic finish that I like, though, not sure if it's supposed to have that.
Nice change of pace from my usual dark roast
s. Lovely, smooth, medium-light flavor with some earthiness to it.
This is our go to coffee. It is very smooth and simply enjoyable to drink.
Really yummy coffee, no bitterness at all. The coffee is really smooth and good tasting notes. It is a little bit too acidic for my opinions.
Was super excited to receive my order and try BeanBox coffee, but when I opened the box it was whole beans in the bags. I ordered ground coffee and I do not have a grinder so unfortunately I cannot try it =(
Very smooth and despite the chocolate
notes, not bitter at all. Hints of almond
balanced it out. Would have again.
Solid, if basic, but too acidic for my everyday blend. Prefer others.
Really good, just great basic flavors that don't disappoint. Nice hints of caramel
, total taste pleasing.
This is our favorite coffee, each new batch is always high quality. caramel
notes. Smooth and just sweet enough for a perfect pour over
It goes down smooth and sweet. A light tasty cup of coffee, no bitterness at all.
An old standby. I enjoy Slate and wish that BB carried a larger selection.
Solid coffee, sweet and light. Makes a good go-to morning cup.
This is a great coffee to serve to those who don't really think about the flavors in the coffee. Taste great and would definitely keep buying
ordering again - great finish. almond
really come through at the end.
The name of this coffee is very appropriate. I don't usually drink my coffee black but this is flavorful enough that you don't need to add anything extra to it. I was very satisfied with this. A new favorite!
This coffee was so delicious that it went super fast in our house. We usually consume our subscription bag in around a week and a half and this was gone in week! Very easy drinking coffee!
Very light coffee it good but prefer a darker roast. But is good after dinner coffee or just for a light coffee drinker.
Might veer a little too much into dark chocolate
but delicious. Accurate description. Made via chemex
I give this 4 stars for what it is, but I personally would not order again. This is obviously for people who like lighter roasts and I am not one of them. It makes a sour espresso
shot so is more of a drip/aeropress
coffee. It's not a bad coffee, just doesn't match my taste.
This was a superb every day coffee. I really enjoyed the balance and ease of drinking. Additionally, my cat seemed to love the smell and came bounding into the kitchen every time I started cranking the grinder.
Pretty good, but I'm generally not a light roast
person, so not my favorite. Those that prefer a light roast
I think would enjoy though.
Balanced albeit a little too sour for my taste.
This is a coffee we buy time and time again. It's a perfect roast for daily and contrary to its name, needs no cream or sugar to bring out the sweetness of the roast.
Good but not exceptional coffee overall. It has a good flavor and body, but because it's a light roast
, there's not enough kick in it for me. I can taste hints of dark chocolate
A staple for the house. Smooth, no sugar needed. A favorite.
Never can go wrong with coffee from Slate Coffee Roasters. Always put out great roasts. Seems like Cream and Sugar is a staple in their offerings. Great stuff!
I agree that this is an excellent blend, with intense and resonant flavor. It is more finicky than most: you have to get the grind, water temperature and steeping just right. My success rate is about 75%. But it is worth the effort and I strongly recommend this coffee.
This was the very first coffee I tried from Bean Box. I was NOT disappointed! It is a smooth blend with no bitterness. Even have my husband drinking regular coffee again! Just placed another order. My new "addiction"! Thank you, Bean Box for doing what you do. So many coffees to choose from.
This blend does have a sugar-like finish and is good black. We use a french press
and it can be brewed slightly weaker and still yield a good cup.
Wow. This is a great lighter roast. More caramel
in my opinion. 10/10 would drink again. Also, great name!
This is a great cup of coffee for a light roast
! I am normally drawn more towards medium/dark roast
s due to the more favorable notes. I taste quite a lot of dark chocolate
in this but find it tough to taste any almond
notes. Perhaps it will come out more with a pour over
. Would definitely by again!
