"Fonte Coffee Roaster has definitely improved over time, I cant say I loved them at first but now they're in a place that I would revisit. The Portofino Blend was the change for me. It was something new and exciting in a landscape of either too many flavors or too many one note coffees this stands ou"
"Wow. This brew has so much body my press was overflowing. Very good."
"This was a pleasant, smooth cup of coffee, but I prefer a darker roast."
"Light and earthy. No particular tasting notes stood out. Made in french press and drank black. "
"This coffee has great flavor but the roast was just not dark enough for me. But all in all I enjoyed the coffee "
"herbal and aromatic! Not too earthy, but just right to bring out a velvet dark, spicy smoothness."
"This was one of our favorites and we will buy this blend again."
"It has a smooth start and finish. I feel it goes best with an early morning pastry! "
"Great coffee not to overpowering but bold. The earthy and herbal notes were light which was very good."
"Coffees like this reminds me why I joined and love Bean Box. Savored every drop coming from my french press. "
"I don’t really like the more floral and aromatic blends, but this one didn’t overpower the coffee as much as others I’ve tried."
"This bean is really aromatic. Enjoyed this coffee drip. "
"First coffee from Bean Box. Initially, I thought the roast was a bit light for me. It had a very noticeable dry and earthy aftertaste. After a few more sips, it began to get markedly better. There is definitely a dryness to this coffee but it is not a bad thing. Similar to a dry cabernet."
"It is a good cup of coffee but nothing to write home about, just okay. Brewed with a french press."
"We brewed it in a percolator and it was the perfect dark morning coffee. I can’t do caffeine at night but it would be nice paired with an after dinner dessert. Robust with a very nice smooth finish. "
"Not extraordinary, but a good morning cup of coffee. Very bold dark roast."
"4.6 / 5 - Complex nose: Earth, Berry, Vanilla, Creamy. On the tongue, this blend develops its --very-- complex profile with notes of BOLD earthy cream, berry, and oak. Very good."
"Earthy, dark, bread. Light mouth feel, slight linger, but clean. No fruit here."
"Absolutely adored this in the french press. Had a great earthy taste that I kept coming back for. Made this in the pour over as well, but as stated, it was best in the french press which is my preferred method."
"NIce and smooth taste. Full-bodied. The aroma when you open the bag fills up the room, and the flavor pretty much follows that."
"I brewed this with a drip/cone filter. This coffee is just dark enough that there is no sour taste that so many medium roasts have. Nothing fancy, but a solid coffee."
"It wasn't "bad" but it had a strong aftertaste like smoking a cigarette, which I really didn't care for. Not for me."
"This is by far one of my favorites that I've tried. Pleasantly smooth, rich and earthy. Used a french press with a little cream and it was wonderful. "
"This coffee immediately brings up the feeling of my favorite coffee shop. This dark blend woke me right up, and I know that darker roasts have less caffeine than light ones, but something about the deep, bitter flavor just really gets you going. Enjoyed as espresso on 9/23/17 - roasted 8/7/17. "
"Great coffee. Dark and not overly complex but good earthy flavor. Great roaster, we have enjoyed many of the coffee's from this roaster."
"A little bold for me, but delicious! Drip brewed with a little cream added was perfect! Good dark roast!"
"Great flavor. I really enjoyed it with a little cream very smooth"
"This is an ideal coffee for Autumn. Upon grinding, you get aromas of freshly cut cedar and bbq chicken. In the cup this coffee shines at a more concentrated ratio of 15/1. Dark chocolate notes predominate and linger on the palette while the earthy spice known to Indonesia round it out masterfully. "
"Great coffee, brewed in my moka pot and it was a great start to my morning! "
"As someone else noted, this one is smooth and balanced. I really enjoyed this roast when brewed in the french press. "
"Very bold. Brewed in french press. Flavors were a little flat to me. Definite morning eye opener roast. "
"So good with french press and bialetti moka express! Definatly one of my favorites on bean box "
"Got this dark roast in my subscription. Good coffee. Nice nose. Smooth finish."
"Just finished this coffee yesterday and it's definitely worth a try. I liked it a little better hot than cold and it was great in the french press."
"Great coffee if you are not looking for something too sweet. "
"One of my favorites! A nice departure from many of the sweet flavor profiles out there. This is on my reorder list! "
"Just delicious. You're not going to find this quality of a coffee at your run-of-the-mill coffee joint. Worth the cost."
"Amazing. My favorite coffee. Brew in a press at a time when you can leisurely sip and take in the aroma and flavor"
