The wonderful chocolate flavor of this blend entranced the entire team. Try it with a splash of cream for a truly decadent experience.
A lively medium/medium-light roast with a creamy chocolate body and intense brown sugar. In pourover brew methods, it finishes with a tea-like mouthfeel.
"I was excited to try this coffee just based on all the other reviews, but I have to say, I'm quite disappointed. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I was left feeling sad..." (2 out of 5)
"I usually used a French Press to brew this coffee. I made a large batch for my coworkers one day, and they insisted it must have been flavored coffee because the tasting notes were so prominent. " (4 out of 5)
"It has a great smell but the taste was not up to par. It was a little too bitter for our taste." (3 out of 5)
"Very, very, smooth and very boring. No fruitiness at all to it. Chemex brewed." (3 out of 5)
"Ohhhhh yeah this is a good one. Totally can taste the chocolate and with cream it's insane." (5 out of 5)
"This coffee is very nice. I enjoy the slightly bitter dark-chocolatey flavor. I added a little cream and sugar once, but found that I prefer it on its own. I feel like I need to add more coffee grounds than I normally do to get the best brew, but overall, this is a really good coffee." (4 out of 5)
"This is probably my favorite coffee that I've gotten so from Bean Box. It made especially notable Cold Brew. The chocolate and brown sugar really came across. Also had success using it to make pour over coffee. " (5 out of 5)

"Heather - The Westlake Blend is one of our favorites as well, with rich chocolate notes. It does especially well as cold brew too...."
"Such a versatile bean. Excellent for cold brew, expressos, and pour-overs!" (5 out of 5)
"Brewed in a Moccamaster, very smooth with rich chocolate. Excellent both black and with cream/sugar. I could drink it all day, every day. A new favorite for us!" (5 out of 5)
"Really lovely medium roast coffee. It's on the sweeter side--both brown sugar and chocolate flavors are noticeable but not overpowering. Great for enjoying on a leisurely morning. " (5 out of 5)
"I prefer darker roasts, but this is a pleasant lighter roast. It has a natural smooth flavor that doesn't need any sweetener. I brewed this with a French press and added a little bit of creamer. I think this would also make a nice cold brew coffee. " (3 out of 5)
"I enjoyed it. I'm more of a dark roast guy but this was a lovely contrast, had almost a sweet quality. I drink coffee with a splash of milk, no sugar or anything, and this was perfect-- its inherent sweetness makes it a nice dessert coffee." (4 out of 5)
"I did not make iced coffee with this - perhaps I should have. This played like medium-bodied, non-offensive regular coffee to me. Totally drinkable but nothing noteworthy. I would drink it regularly and make it an every day coffee, but I didn't get particular enjoyment out of it." (3 out of 5)
"I used this medium blend for my iced coffee. Chocolate flavors are subtle. Good blend. " (4 out of 5)

"Right away after brewing you can smell the brown sugar. This blend has a good balanced body (brewed with a Chemex). And as others have said, it definitely has a sweetness that makes it enjoyable even for those who usually wouldn't like black coffee." (4 out of 5)
"This coffee was very pleasant. I could taste the notes of chocolate and enjoyed it. I brewed it using a pour over and drank it black. It was very enjoyable. " (4 out of 5)
"My favorite coffee yet! It's a nice medium- not too light and not too dark and overwhelming. I can actually taste the chocoately notes in this one! I drink it black or with a hint of whole milk. It's a perfect everyday coffee. Brewed w/ Aeropress @ 175 steeped for 2 minutes, just past the 2 line." (5 out of 5)
"A medium roast that has a lot of flavor and is in the sweet side. Great as a change of pace and needs no sugar. " (4 out of 5)
"I like really dark roasts but this one is definitely a winner!" (4 out of 5)
"Light and sweet, with a great aroma. I usually take my coffee with cream and sugar, but was able to drink this black. Just for kicks, I went ahead and adulterated the brew with my usual additions anyway, and found the resulting taste and mouthfeel to be very reminiscent of hot cocoa. Yummy." (5 out of 5)
"This is a great tasting coffee. Very smooth, creamy and tastes great as a hot cup of joe or an iced coffee. Highly recommended for beginners to the world of coffee." (5 out of 5)
"I love this coffee -- it's perfectly sweet and the chocolate notes are highlighted even more with a touch of heavy cream. This is my favorite of the samples so far. " (5 out of 5)
"Definitely a sweeter, lighter medium roast that is very enjoyable. " (4 out of 5)
"Smooth, and just sweet enough. Can't wait to pour the first cup of the morning! Just a little cream is all that's needed here. Blissful!"
"This is the one that has me waking up before the alarm just to get to it. A pinch of stevia and some heavy cream it's like desert. Are you sure they're not sneaking cocoa beans in there?" (4 out of 5)
"One of my preferred coffees for a morning cup, that needs no sugar, since there's a real sweetness, almost caramelized, in the foreground." (4 out of 5)
