A deep, dark, full-bodied French roast with just a hint of vanilla and a lingering finish. There’s no light side to this moon– as a matter of fact, it’s all dark.
Our darkest roast, a blend of coffees from Latin America and East Africa. Robust aromas of bittersweet chocolate and fig, complimented by flavors of vanilla and maple.
"This was an excellent coffee. I really liked how the flavors were balanced. It wasn't too sweet, or too bitter."
"A good blend and surprisingly well balanced. We liked this more than we thought we would. "
"Pretty good medium-dark roast. Like everything else on Bean Box, the roast is much lighter than advertised. But this isn't a bad coffee. "
"A good French roast. Rich, dark-roast flavor with medium-to-full body and some complexity, without tasting at all burnt or charred. "
"Very much so creamy and with a mouth full of vanilla. This may be my new favorite. This coffee would go great with a Charcuterie plate for Sunday brunch!"
"My first french roast, i noticed vanilla from start to finish. really good!"
"Only the faintest hint of vanilla, although that doesn't detract from the experience of this superlatively dark roast. Quite good."
"French roasts are one of my favorites. First taste of this was with a pourover and it had really nice boldness and depth. Not bitter or burnt tasting like so many French roasts out there."
"This one fools you with sweet amazing scents but the second it touches your lips it's nothing but bitter."
"Another favourite. Dark vanilla flavours, very smooth. "
"a fantastic roast. Full of sweet vanilla and maple flavor, but not too overwhelming. Wonderful roast."
"One of my all time favorites from bean box! Loved everything about this coffee. Very well balanced through the entire taste. The fig and maple notes go together surprisingly well. Will definitely be on my reorder list!"
"Got my fiance a bean box gift and LOVED this roast, the smell was amazing and it was so smooth"
"Got my girlfriend bean box for a Christmas present after she has been stuck on Starbucks Italian roast. Shes a big chocolate lover and this coffee quickly became her favorite on the first sip. Personally I liked the coffee a lot, but its not something I can get stuck on every day. To each their own."
"Heavy maple and vanilla. It's a creamy roast with a strong finish. This roast would be good for holidays and special occasions or as a black cup with dessert."
"I agree with the other reviewer. It is a little to dark with not much flavor. The fig notes are interesting though."
"Too dark. I understand its a dark blend but there isn't much flavor. "
