Bean Box Breakdown

A lovely mellow roast with soft, rounded fruit flavor, a hint of perfume, and a powdered sugar finish. Bright without being “in your face”. Polite acidity. We’re charmed.

"Quite a nice fruity blend. Prepared as a french press. Not at all a fan of Ethiopian coffee but this one wasn't too bad."

"What is marzipan? Whatever it is, I want more! Great logo and great coffee."

"We felt like we could taste juicy strawberries. fruity coffees aren't always my favorite, but I really liked the sweetness."

"It starts with a pleasant fruity smell. The coffe is caramel and buttery with light fruit tart acidity. The finish is buttery and lingers. "

"I tried this both hot and cold, brewed as a pour over in the Fretta v60. It has a light chocolate flavor and I didn't find it overtly citrusy. I enjoyed this cup and thought it was a perfect compliment for a mellow Sunday morning."

"I was happy to find the description right-on. It is perfectly bright, but not, as they say, "in your face." A delightful way to perk up. "

"Good coffee if you like light roasts which I usually do not..."

"Brewed with my french press, was a nice bright cup. Very refreshing. "

"One of our favorites...smooth, mellow and no bitter aftertaste. Really does smell like blueberries with no taste once brewed."

"Made a pretty nice espresso. The grind (and beans) smelled of baked blueberries, but the finished product was bright with more of a strong coffee flavor and just a hint of exotic fruitiness. Texture is nice too."

"Thank you Bean Box, for sending another favorite! This coffee packs great flavor and body. Nice fruit notes and very balanced. Might need to buy a full bag of this one!"
