"I wanted this coffee to be more flavorful than it was. Still a good dark roast, but I had a hard time picking up any spicy notes."
"Love the way Fundamental does dark roasts! My subscription is for light-medium, however, I have tried a few dark roasts from this company when I need to "change it up" and I have not been disappointed! "
"Bearded Lady by Longshoreman's Daughter is a tie with this one. These are now our 2 favorite dark roasts. Super smooth, bold with a hint of smoke at the beginning and finishes slightly acidic. "
"Dark, beautiful, rich. A few words that come to mind after enjoying this brew. Would love to see more Nicaraguan coffees. This did not disappoint! Fun fact: The national flower of Nicaragua is the Plumeria. Love this one! Would recommend!"
"A good dark roast. While I expected it to be a little more full-flavored, it was still quite enjoyable."
"Nice and dark, but no particular notes stand out. Full body. Made in french press and drank black. "
"This was dark and full bodied. It had no hint of light roast to it, and I thoroughly enjoyed this brew. "
"Mild smokey tobacco flavor. Took a little extra half and half to get past the acidity"
"This coffee satisfies my need for robust flavor; however, I need to use more beans than I normally do to get the strong taste I prefer."
"Really good coffee. Rich, smooth, well balanced. Low acidity but full body. The cocoa notes are subtle enough not to dominate, which is really nice."
"From my husband - a delicious, strong coffee with a good dark flavor. It’s got a smooth taste with just a touch of a nutty taste."
"My wife and I love starting our day with a cup of Fundamental's Semaphore Blend. Being we both love cream in our coffee, this roast stands up to the cream and maintains its flavor. The tasting notes are spot on: nutty and the cocoa flavor stays on the back of our tongues. Love this coffee."
