"For a lighter roast (for my preference), it was ok but I would lean towards other options. Medium grind / french press. " (3 out of 5)
"I can see why some folks didn't have favourable reviews, but this was my favorite out of my medium and dark roast sampler! My initial taste of it I didn't enjoy, but after that, it was a rich, complex flavor with lots of different "notes", including a slight smokiness/tobacco as described. " (5 out of 5)

"I read other reviews about people saying this was more a dark than medium roast. Compared to the other dark roasts that I normally drink, this is for sure a medium roast. I thoroughly enjoyed this coffee and would recommend that you try it." (4 out of 5)
"Received this in my monthly subscription. I would not call this a medium roast at all. The beans were very dark in color, and the coffee tasted burnt and bitter." (1 out of 5)
"Love this coffee! Rich but so smooth. Cant get enough of it in the morning" (5 out of 5)
"So here's the thing. I recognize I might just be a taste outlier, but I really haven't liked anything Fonte has roasted. This is my second round of Fonte beans - I enjoyed more than the last one, but still. It's so dark, it has a burnt, bitter taste to me. It's just unpleasant to my palate. " (2 out of 5)
"Fonte does it again. Havent tried a coffee from them i havent loved! Truly delicious" (5 out of 5)
