Bean Box Breakdown

Black coffee isn’t usually a hit for those with a sweet tooth, but this Colombian will be: it smells like melted strawberry ice cream and tastes like a cherry candy. Life is short; sip dessert first!

"Smooth and a bit fruity, this is a good example of dark roast where the roasting doesn't totally hide the flavor profile. Still, it's not as sweet as expected and I still needed a touch of cream in mine to balance slight hairiness. (v60 and french press)."

"Very nice fairly mild. Good mid range coffee. I use an aero press and it brings out the fullest flavor profiles."

"chocolate and cherry flavor yield a fantastic cup! chemex brewed."

"A good cup, but nothing really stood out. Based on the description, I was expecting a super sweet brew. In my opinion, it had more chocolate undertones as opposed to cherry candy. I prepared this as a pour over using a v60. "

"Nice coffee with sweet finish. Brewed in my new super automatic espresso machine. Drank as both espresso and a cappuccino. Would try again. "
