Bean Box Breakdown

We coffee lovers are explorers at heart, making new expeditions across the world with every sip… but we’re also nesters, home-baristas, and sleep-late-ers. Yes, we can have it both ways! Fitzroy’s Blend, Zoka's nod to the worldly spirit of coffee, is both a Bon Voyage and a Welcome Home. Bold and adventurous, this medium blend is a strong cup, with intense notes of dark chocolate syrup and ginger-molasses cookies. A soft, smoky finish feels as cozy as curling up in front of a fireplace on a chilly night. The classic notes of big nutty chocolate come from this blend’s Central and South American beans, and the intensity of the roast makes this coffee a true Seattle standout. Brew up a pot and start your own journey, whether around the world, the block, or the house. Other coffees may start your engine, but this one will make it purr.

Zoka Coffee Story

Zoka’s signature, medium roast Fitzroy blend encompasses our efforts to produce a drinkable, well-balanced coffee. By sourcing beans from Central and South America we've developed a flavor profile that’s chocolaty, rich, and satisfying.

"Loved it and would definitely order large bag when able"

"Brewed with a french press and definitely tasted bitter in flavor. I was disappointed not to taste the chocolate or molasses finish as much as I got the bitter. "

"My absolute favorite coffee from Bean Box. I've ordered it several times. It's so nutty with a tiny bit of fruity punch at the end."

"Tended more toward bittersweet than baking chocolate, definitely had tones of molasses. Very nice body."

"Not my favorite, could not enjoy it with my french press or when pouring over. Just OK. "

"So Good. I have yet to get a coffee from Bean Box that I haven't enjoyed! The freshness is just something I can't go without anymore."

"This was not bad. The more I drank it, the better I liked it. At first, I thought it was very bitter tasting, but it was very low acidity and drinkable."

"Just OK, but I was expecting to like it more based on the tasting notes listed and the reviews. It was more bitter than sweet to me. Not bad, but I wouldn't order it again. "

"Overall this was pretty good. Seemed a little bitter but was a good breakfast coffee."

"This one was a little more bitter than I was expecting, but after a few sips so I knew what to expect, it really grew on me!"

"I was a little disappointed. I did not taste the notes reported for this blend. I thought it was a little bitter to me."

"Seem rather strong and bitter to use in the french press... It want horrible like cheap grocery coffee, but it was far from a favorite."

"I drank this in the morning with some sugar free hazelnut creamer. It had a good flavor and before I knew it the cup was gone. Not sure I would order it myself but I am glad I got to try it. "

"Did not care for this coffee. Roast was darker then the medium I like. Average taste not much complexity with some bitterness. Would have preferred it roasted lighter."

"This was the first coffee from bean box. Previously was just using beans from big box stores. This coffee was fantastic , I can't believe how much better it is than grocery store coffee! I used an aeropress. Can't wait to try more!"

"This was the first coffee from bean box. Previously was just using beans from big box stores. This coffee was fantastic , I can't believe how much better it is than grocery store coffee! I used an aeropress. Can't wait to try more!"

"My first coffee with been box, it's pretty good with some sugar and half and half."

"This coffee is very tasty, smooth, and seems to disappear quickly from my cup! This coffee is not overly bitter or acidic and is delicious brewed via aeropress. The first coffee I tried from Zoka was terrible, however, the past 2 roasts that I have received from this roaster have been excellent!"

"Balanced, good body and linger, chocolate, semi-sweet. Pleasantly acidic, would probably be good in a latte or mocha"

"Absolutely perfect. I love this coffee and it is worth every penny of its asking price. Never trust a book by its cover, trust it by the delicious aroma that emanates from the bag."

"Good blend. when I opened the bag the coffee had a pronounced coffee oil smell and was reminiscent of dark roast. However, once ground and brewed in my french press, the coffee was deep in flavor and had a back note of molasses. bolder than some other blends but definitely good."

"Mmm, really tasty. I wound up drinking two cups of it today."

"Good overall taste and mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied, and sweet in the finish."

"Holy body! This blend is practically FILLED with pronounced notes of dark (bakers?) chocolate. Thick, slightly creamy, and deceptively dark. Bold, but not burnt. I'm catching hints of molasses as the coffee cools - it seems to brighten up slightly as time goes on. Is that a hint of tobacco..?"

"Very solid, easy drinking cup. At first sip, it felt unique, offering a slightly different flavor profile than what I think of as a typical coffee blend"

"While I felt that this one was a bit of "regular" cup of coffee, I also think that's what makes it a great cup of coffee. Full bodied dark chocolate flavor, with a hint of molasses. Easy to drink, low acidity and pairs well with creamer. "

"Little bitterness to this blend. Not sure if this needs more water to balance it. "

"Great cup of coffee. Enjoyed it. I don’t know if I would order it though. "

"Nice but nothing special. Not much profile other than chocolate notes and a bit of sweetness that might be the molasses. Very drinkable but just not special."

"Deep chocolate forest with a lightly sweet finish that awakens the senses. Roasted 6/12/17 drank on 9/6/17 as espresso shot."

"This coffeee is by gfar one of my favorites for pour over/ chemex. Sometimes when you order so much coffee they all start tasting the same but this one is definitely one I will be reordering!"

"I personally did not like this but my mom and sister thought it tasted very good. They said it had just the right amount of chocolate hints."

"So good! I made this in my french press and enjoyed it while watching the monsoons roll in over the mountains outside my apartment. This is a wonderful sipping coffee and perfect as a dessert beverage."

"I really enjoyed this coffee. I brewed it with a pour over and it came out great. I would have it again. The sweet notes really stuck out."

"A solid, smooth coffee with a definitive chocolate taste and a smokey caramel / molasses taste, with sweeter notes coming out for me in the aftertaste. Not my personal favorite, but it would make a great standard go-to coffee. Made with a moka pot."

"Great coffee. Brewed in french press 4-5 minutes. Full flavor, very smooth, no aftertaste. roasted very well, almost perfect cup of coffee. No off notes or odd indiscriminate flavor a, just good smooth coffee. "

"Un cafe excelente me gustan sus sabores complementarios y matices"

"A very drinkable blend. Shared this with three others and they loved it. Thought it could have been a little more bitter. "

"Solid coffee, solid blend. I recommend with sweetened heavy cream for an afternoon treat! "

"I loved this coffee! It was like drinking a cup of hot cocoa when you put a touch of cream in it. No acidity at all in the back with a nice rich molasses finish. This is definitely one of my new favorites. "

"LOVE this coffee!!! The tasting notes are right on target with "full bodied and smooth" and "creamy"—had it both hot and iced (the next day) and it was stellar both ways! "

"We've been enjoying the monthly samplers for almost a year and this is only the 2nd sampler where I've wanted to hop online and buy a whole bag before I finished my mug. Just the right amount of boldness and flavor; it's the perfect bean to drink all day long on a lazy Sunday. "

"This coffee is now one of our favorites. Definitely can taste the molasses. "

"This was my second best coffee from June box. chocolate notes and molasses aftertaste is a perfect match! Brewed in Moka pot. One minus - bag quickly became empty! :D "

"I love this coffee. I brew my coffee in a normal stainless steel coffee pot. This brew was smooth as silk, and made my mouth water in anticipation of every sip. I take my coffee with cream, and I used very little on this one because it already has a creamy mouth feel. Thank you for this coffee."

"Really nice, well rounded not too acidic with a pleasant mouth feel. Grows sweeter as it cools. Served via aeropress."

"This delicious coffee is one of my favorite so far! With a medium body and low acidity it delivers a well rounded sweet, nutty cocoa flavor in a very smooth cup. Fantastic for morning cup of coffee!"

"Delicious!! Would definitely buy on my own! Could be a breakfast regular."

"Brewed in a moccamaster. Very smooth. Definite chocolate hit. I could drink this all day!"

"It is starting to get rather warm out where I live and this makes excellent iced coffee. Yum!"

"Love the smooth, well blended taste. Just ordered another bag of this today!"

"This is my morning go-to for espresso. It's smooth, and clearly has the subtle sweet notes of chocolate, which is always a nice way to start the morning. I love having this coffee with a homemade almond biscotti. The flavor is strong enough to come through the milk that I add too."

"Do you like chocolate pudding? If you do this is your blend. Chocalate notes from grinder to the comforting, lingering aftertaste. Subtle hints of molasses and clove keep you interested, while the traces of peanut are worth mentioning. Medium body, with little to no acid or fruit detectable. "

"I made this in a chemex and it was very good. Full bodied, smooth and chocolatey."

"Got a free cold brew at U V Zoka when I purchased a bag of single origin Costa Rican coffee. Worked well with stevia and cream. "

"Great flavor. Unexpectedly liked it, because of the choclate and molasses you might think it is off putting, but it actually tastes great!"
