"Great aroma, quite literally smells like sweet cream. It’s a strong smell but the flavor is very nice. I’m new to espresso
and pretty much grinding my own beans but this makes it a great start."
"I think too strong or too weak doesn't bring out the uniqueness of this coffee and when I think I brewed it right, was good for a different everyday cup and was richer with a little sugar, milk and half and half. It has a sweet, toasted nutty
aroma from the bag and comes out in the cup"
"Love this smooth, light roast
with taste notes of chocolate
and carmel . The aroma and flavors do not disappoint. "
"Love it! This is my favorite!! We received a Bean Box Gift and a three month coffee gift. Cream and Sugar is one of our favorites. We ordered this coffee several times. What better way to begin your day but a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Sugar and Cream! "
"A good go-to, though a little too light for me. But it is smooth and not bitter in the slightest."
"Nice and light with no bitterness!"
"I was hoping this would be a 5/5, but a little weak for me. Still tasty though. "
"I've been ordering Cream and Sugar for quite some time. It has become a mainstay of my home. It's pleasurable black, with cream, or with cream and sugar whatever your mood."
"This is one of my favorites for my morning coffee. I enjoy the slightly sweet smooth taste with a small amount of almond
"This is my all time favorite so far! My Bean Box order came today and I cannot wait til morning to brew a pot! "
"Not sure if I got a bad batch or what but this coffee was disgusting. Just a really unpleasant, burnt bean taste. This purchase was beyond disappointing. I will grimace my way through the bag but I definitely won’t serve it to guests. "
"Very smooth blend. I'm not usually a fan of lighter roasts, but I loved this one!"
"One of my favorites! Really nice smooth flavor; especially love it on the weekends with breakfast, yum!"
"Taste is so smooth. Process to order was easy. Was a bummer that the $5 credit did not even cover the shipping cost. "
"Light. Smooth. Silky. Sweet. Thick. nutty
. This one hits the spot in the afternoon as a pick me up!"
"A great versatile bean — just the right amount of sweetness for every day. Pairs well with oat milk. "
"The whole family loves this one. I enjoy it with half & half at any time of day, whenever I can take the time to savor a cup. My daughter likes it iced
with cream and sugar. Like the description says, it "tastes like coffee," but you can pick up the flavor notes as well. "
"This blend is incredible with or without cream and sugar. It is bold and pleasing to the taste. This household enjoys it in the mid afternoon."
"Burnt and over roasted beans. Definitely not a light too medium roast
"Just received my second bag of Slate Cream and Sugar. This is too good! I have some brewing right now for my cold brew
tomorrow. Can’t wait!"
"Wow and wow! Tried this one over a year ago so wanted to check on the 2022 roast. Seems that Slate how to keep a good thing going! The chocolate
and the almond
notes are still there and amazing! Perfectly smooth and just bold enough. Enjoy!"
"I originally received this coffee in a subscription box. It is truly one of the best, most balanced cups of coffee that I have ever had "
"A coffee to brighten your day. Really nice tasting notes, smooth as could be. Two cups went down like it was nothing!"
"I love getting my coffee every two weeks. It is the best part of my morning!"
"Great crema with rich, sugary flavor. Not my favorite, but definitely high quality!"
flavor. Good balance, not overwhelmingly coffee flavored, subtle flavors of cocoa
compliment the caramel
"This is one of my go to coffees! v60
both bring out a very flavorful cup each having it’s own unique taste. If I had to settle for one coffee this at this moment would be it. "
"My fiancé and I absolutely love this coffee. Got a subscription of it just as we tried around 10 kinda and this was the best. We love a light to medium roast
. I do enjoy creamer in my coffee and no sugar. Great coffee. "
"Worst coffee ever received from Bean Box. It was sent to us by mistake. We usually like Medium and dark roast
s and this is a light roast
. Nevertheless, we decided to try it. We use a very good burr grinder, and a 'top of the line" Breville coffee maker. Technically, it is a "drip" coffee maker, but it blooms the coffee grounds 1st, brews at the perfect brewing temperature and the stainless steel carafe does not rest on a warmer/burner. In other words, best possible way to grind the beans and to brew a full pot of coffee. But nothing helped this coffee!! It was bitter and acidic, with no tasting notes because bitter and acid and basic coffee taste were the only "flavors" that came through. We even tried using 2x the milk and half & half we normally put in our cups. And black, it was truly undrinkable. Seriously no better than the Folgers and Maxwell House pre-ground crud. If you like well-balanced coffees with good flavor and interesting undertones. Stay away from this!"
"Never thought the best cup of coffee I've had would be made by me using a french press
but here we are. Seriously the taste, aroma and mouthfeel are unreal - it's smooth, decadent
, perfectly balanced and not bitter. Don't sleep on this blend - buy it"
"On my! Received as a sampler in a gift box. Seriously the BEST coffee I've ever had! So smooth, creamy, yet rich and not bitter! I'm a forever customer now!!"
"Good blend! Very smooth and sweet. Would definitely get again. :) "
"I usually stick to single origins but this blend might just change my mind on that. It was a great cup of "classic" coffee. It was nice and bold with a very pleasant sweetness that reminded me of brown sugar
"Slate Cream & Sugar ~ one of our favorites. Loved the bonus gift with coffee and chocolate
"This coffee is consistently exceptional any time of the day with or without cream and sugar. "
"The perfect cup of coffee. If you want just an honest good cup of coffee, this one's for you. "
"The name Cream & Sugar is a bit of an enigma because this coffee is exceptional with cream and sugar but is just a good with only cream or without cream and sugar. So you can enjoy it whatever your frame of mind."
"This is one of my favorite coffee beans that I have ever had. It wasn't too tart like a lot of light roast
s tend to be. It was a pleasant surprise and so flavorful."
"Perfect, flavorful cup. Not too strong or too weak. "
"Delicious. I used it as espresso
and made a cappuccino and it really does have a hint of chocolate
! Not bitter at all, just smooth and delicious. Highly recommend "
"This coffee is so smooth. This was the first coffee I tried and I already ordered a second bag. I've been drinking Maxwell House for as long as I can remember and never really enjoyed coffee. This coffee changed everything! Smooth and simple."
"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. "
