Just like rock-n-roll and everything your mother warned you about, this dark blend is big, bold, intense, and maybe even a little dangerous. For those about to brew, we salute you.
A blend of Colombian, Guatemalan, and Sumatra Mandheling beans for big, bold flavor and a full body. Complex earthy and herbal notes. Our favorite espresso blend, and perfect for a French press.
"This was not my favorite. Although it was dark like I prefer, the tones were not tasty. "
"ground finely and tried as espresso. it was okay, certainly drinkable, perhaps just a bit too dark for my taste. it may do even better as a french press or cold brew, and it's certainly worth trying if you like a good dark roast!"
"Very easy espresso to pull, great for beginners. I enjoyed it!"
"I did not care for this coffee at all, I found it strong, bitter and unpleasant. That being said, I like a full city, dry bean soif you like dark coffee you might love! "
"This blend is moderate and taste very much like most of the dark roast out in the market. Nothing unique that pops out from this blend, yet nothing bad. I find it difficult going back to dark roast after trying light/medium."
"Exactly what you want in a dark roast. Rich and dark without the acidity, and the flavors still come through"
"I'm no coffee connoisseur (yet), but I received this in my first bean box trial and found it to be a pretty smooth, easy to drink dark roast "
"Use this in my french press! So good! The Fundamental Coffee Company is my go to. I haven't tried anything I didn't like so far."
"I thought this was just too strong for my taste. Although it was a good roast, brewed with my french press, I just felt it was a little too dark for me to drink regularly. "
"Even though darks aren't my fav, I tried this twice and I just found it to be overly roasted for a dark. Not for me."
"This blend was a little too dark for my taste but would be loved by those who like a very strong, bold brew."
"Not my ideal cup of Joe. Definitely a dark bold blend. My first sip I was a little taken aback but started to enjoy it the more I had.."
"Everything about this blend was fantastic! The bold flavors and herbal tones made for a wonderful rich cup of coffee! It did not disappoint!"
"This was one of four dark roast coffees I got in a sample box. It was my least favorite. I usually like Earthy coffees but the after taste was less than pleasing. I believe that it has to do with the blend and not the beans themselves. A decent coffee but not one that I would seek out again. "
"This is a very nice dark roast with really great flavor. "
"Great, classic blend. I don't know if I prefer herbal tasting coffee, however, I do think this was a nice clean blend. Great job!"
"Smooth and decadent blend. Rich, creamy and bold with hints of sweetness. Perfect for a wake up or afternoon pick up. Love this coffee and will be ordering as a regular to keep me going. Have not been disappointed by a single blend yet. Always excited to see what's in store. THANK YOU bean box!!!!!!"
