Coffee was on the sweet side as advertised. I was looking forward to more of an angel cake taste, but enjoyed the subtle fruit notes. Overall, this coffee did not disappoint.
This is one of my favorite coffees. If you pour it perfectly, it really tastes like a strawberry
. If you are not a fan of fruity
coffees however, you will definitely not like this one. Highly recommended!
Has been my favorite of all sent so far, couldn’t put the cup down.
bomb" is exactly right. Expect the coffee to taste like deliciously tart fruit jam while it's hot, and as it cools for it to open up into a sweeter more syrupy fruit flavor. It's a fantastic light roast
, a perfect expression of modern coffee, and is great on aeropress
It’s not bad, but the taste wasn’t for me. I found it to have an earthy somewhat dirty taste as it cooled. It’s pleasantly acidic that lingers on your palate like collard greens. Adding sugar made the bitterness last shorter but I wouldn’t recommend for a morning coffee.
What a FANTASTIC addition to the Slate line-up! This coffee tastes like straight-up chocolate
This is my new favorite from Slate Coffee Roasters. The cup has a very tannic mouthfeel to it, as the initial sips of this coffee tasted similar to Merlot. As the cup cools, the cocoa
powder and strawberry
are really felt. I used a chemex
to brew these beans. This roast is also great for cold brew
I gave this bag as a gift to my Mom. She loves the flavor but had no words to describe it.

Slate Coffee Roasters Kilenso Ethiopia brews a beautifully complex, pleasantly juicy cup. One of my personal favorites discovered from my light roast
Sample Subscription. From the first drop to the last, very consistent, fruity
and a true experience.
I felt the chocolate
notes overwhelmed the fruit notes in this blend. It was still tasty, I just felt it wasn’t as balanced as it probably could have been.
and sour taste- which I'm not a fan of that profile- I prefer the nutty
profile. Very fresh however, and evenly sized/roasted beans. I'll try another kind from Slate.
I brewed it with a chemex
and it was delicious! Super fruity
in a good way.
Slate always does such a fantastic job, with this Kilenso being no exception. Exceptionally delicate and smooth. I have to say I appreciate this roast more when it comes from my espresso
machine, rather than my aeropress
. Brew methods used : aeropress
, inverted. espresso
in La Pavoni Europiccola
This really does taste like strawberries! Also a light chocolate
flavor. Like chocolate
dipped strawberries (no really). Very enjoyable cup. Brewed with aeropress
Delicious berry flavors, I prefer this to a flavored creamer.
Brewed this cup in a Hario v60
after grinding the beans with a burr grinder to make sure I'm getting the best cup of coffee from these Ethiopia beans. My first sips the chocolate
flavor was pronounced then as it began to cool, the fruit flavors became more prevalent. Awesome bright & fruity
Delicious blend of chocolate
and strawberries!light taste bold flavor
Not the biggest fan of light coffee but the berry flavor was extremely easy to notice and enjoy. 7.1/10
I made this in my french press
and it was lovely. I could taste the fruity
essences and cocoa
undertones. Not one of my favorites but it's definitely a good cup.
Loved this coffee! It was fruity
and bright and a perfect way to start my day!
I got this in my first ever box of coffee from Bean Box. I completely love it. It's light on your tongue and smells delicious. I would suggest a pairing. The fruity
accents of this coffee would go great with some chocolate
dipped strawberries or just regular cut up strawberries.
Smells and tastes like strawberries. Really tart fruity
flavor, just something my palate doesn't appreciate in coffee. A really good summer flavor, just not something I have to have. I had high expectations, and it tastes like it should, but we have an "It's not you, it's me" kind of relationship.
Pretty good. My boyfriend who isn't a coffee connoisseur loved this one.
Smells like strawberries, tastes like strawberries, 10/10 accurate description and 10/10 magnificent coffee. While it was hot/warm it tasted like strawberries, or even strawberry
milk! And as it cooled it turned into the darker blueberry
combo. Made with a moka pot.
Outstanding flavor! strawberry
notes practically jump out of the cup! This will undoubtedly be one of my all-time favorites.
Excellent blend. My senses are not often refined enough to catch all the flavors and notes that others' can, but I could definitely taste the sweetness and berry. Very surprising that it's NOT artificially flavored. I honestly did not know coffee could be this good. Favorite Bean Box purchase yet!
This roast ties as one of my favorites this season! The fruity
notes paired with the cocoa
come through with every sip! blueberry
reminds me of spring and while the strawberry
is present, the blueberry
definitely comes through as well! Perfect for a morning on the porch!
Really great coffee just like the description says you can definitely taste the berries. This coffee is great in a french press
or drip. I love it as a pick me up in the morning or if i just want a sweet treat at night.
Very light and refreshing berry notes with hints of chocolate
. Easy drinking and delicious, perfect for a bright morning cup. Brewed hot using a v60
This was a nice, light coffee blend that I really enjoyed.
This bean has tons of flavor... For being a light roast
, I expected a very acidic taste, but was pleasantly surprised when I received the opposite. This is one of my absolute favorite lighter roasts. Would recommend.
We are typically not fruity
-coffee people, but we truly loved this one. We just got an aeropress
so maybe that changed how we can appreciate a brew, but at any rate - the strawberry
notes were super clear and yummy.
If you like light blends with fruit notes, this one might be for you. But, that's not my thing.
This roast is fruity
and light, I could drink this all day!
This fantastic coffee is light and aromatic. The cup is not acidic the way some light roast
s can be, and is smooth and crisp. The fruity
complexion is noticeable, but not overpowering. Overall, this is one of my favorite light roast
Everything Slate touches turns to gold! This one doesn't disappoint.
This one tastes just like it smells, which is a good thing! fruity
and light in flavor.
Luckily I reached out to Bean Box in time to change my order. Instead of getting a blend I already received they switched out my order to Slate's Kilenso Ethiopia. What a wonderful coffee! The aroma and taste is a bright with light strawberry
notes and a sweet aftertaste. My favorite from BB so far.
This was hands down my favorite in this month's sampler. It even made my favorite list. I would buy it again and again.
I've enjoyed everything I have tried from Slate. This is a solid Ethiopian single origin. I like that the cocoa
notes balance out the berry notes so it is not too overpoweringly fruity
. Really great coffee. I brewed on a chemex
Great coffee! I received this is a box with Velton's Mexican Nayarita, also lots of berries. Slate's Ethiopian here tastes like riper fruit. Fun to compare them side by side!
This was Absolutely delicious!! Recommend it 100% will definitely purchase again
This is firmly in my all time top 5 list. It's one of the greats — don't miss it! So flavorful and so smooth. I usually have a hard time tasting the note that everyone keeps talking about, but this one is all berries for sure. Yum!!!
One of the best Ethiopian coffees I have had. Very fruity
and light taste with very little acidity to the finish, made it a real easy coffee to sit back and sip on. Brewed on a drip coffee machine, nothing special except for the coffee.
Well-balanced cup (made it on a clever
dripper with a 3-min brew). Less acidic than many of the Ethiopians I have tried, but a good cup nonetheless.
Made one of the best pour over
flavors I have had in a while. Totally could smell the strawberry
right as you open the bag and grind. To me, the blueberry
isn't as apparent but the chocolate
flavor is all there for me! I have bought 2 bags since.
