One of the best that Beanbox has to offer.
I've purchased several "top shelf" single origins and this was the first time I felt it was worthy of that distinction. Every tasting note comes through beautifully with my Chemex.
I have had the privilege of trying coffee from the Aricha Mista Valley before from a local roaster and it is one of my favorites. Bluebeard has done this region justice. Very balanced and smooth above all. Juicy fruit notes (strawberry/raspberry/apricot), chocolate and smooth milk. Perfect.
A very good, solid coffee that you simply can't go wrong with. I originally tried a multi-sampled beanbox and this one was my highest rated one for sure. In terms of cost/taste ratios, this one is tough to beat.
Normally I'm not a light coffee drinker, but to use an expression, this one is lovely. It is very smooth, and even somehow sweet. It lingered in my mouth for an awfully long time and just made me feel good. Even peaceful.
Received this in my monthly sample box and fell in love as soon as I opened the bag. The chocolate and spice notes filled the air instantly. I normally tend to lean towards medium roasts, but this roast offered just a bit more than a medium coffee. The perfect amount of mocha, fruit, and acidity.
First time for me except have had Guatemalan coffee before but this being a light roast is full of flavor with fruity notes and yes, as I drink, gets better with every gulp, not sip. It does have a smokey undertone that is molasses and being a light roast had enough flavor and strength as a medium.
A very interesting coffee, indeed! Has a subtle taste — not as smooth and sweet as the Guatemalans or Kenyans I've really been digging this year, at least as a pour-over, but has its own character for sure. I decided to try it as a cold brew using my Gina, and it's the best cold brew I've ever had!
This one was an easy cup of coffee to drink; nothing necessarily really stood out or jumped out with flavor, but it was mild and paired well with creamer. Had a nice natural sweetness, with a mild vanilla flavor; very very mild hints of summer peach or summer fruit.
Excellent mouthfeel, nice light-to-medium body, with a richness that doesn't overpower you. It's a very steady coffee that finishes on the sweeter side, which I love. Great for a drip or a french press.
Excellent single-origin with a unique "cookie dough" scent that carries into the brew. Very low acidity with rich mouthfeel. There is a bit of bitterness that enters the brew as it cools to room temperature, but overall, very good cup.
Cinnamon, Cocoa, Cedar, Woodsy, and if the cup wasn't interesting enough some tart apple brightness. Brewed with Chemex. 4 stars on taste and bean quality, 5 stars on rarity. It's a treat to have a coffee from Yemen!
This was an oddly great coffee. I'm not a wine drinker, so I have to say that I noticed the dark red/purple fruit tones/flavors. Loved the dark chocolate woody flavor, and the zingy red/purple fruit notes. Very different, very good.
I really liked this one. So smooth, with a lot of citrus flavor, more than expected, and more than you think you'd like. It was just easy to drink, with a natural sweetness. Didn't really need to add any sweetener to this one, it came packed with flavor.
I'm lucky enough to have a Slate Roaster fairly close to my house and try to stop by whenever I can, due to their unbelievably delicious roasts! This roast takes the cake! Deliciously sweet, it's the perfect way to start your morning, no matter the weather outside!
