Bean Box Breakdown

Are we suffering from folie à brew? We hope this roast is no delusion! Sweet chocolatey notes dance with a light apple tea body. Be careful, though. It’s so good, it might drive you mad.

" This wasn't as good as i thought it would be, and the flavor changed every time i brewed a new pot. Tasted a bit watered down. " (3 out of 5)

"Pretty good, but the flavors were not as complex and enjoyable as some of the other coffees I've received from Bean Box. Brewed with an aeropress." (3 out of 5)

"Not sure why so many negative reviews. It brewed such a full-bodied, yet not acidic cup of coffee with a slow bombardment of excellent flavors. Not overpowering, though! " (5 out of 5)

"I really wanted to love this coffee because it sounded so cool, but the flavor combination was just too much for me. I thought there was too much fruit. I like some fruit flavors in coffee, but it was overpowering here, unfortunately." (2 out of 5)

"Loved the taste it was light for my preference but it was a nice warm change from the dark bitterness I lean to. I love the notes of chocolate which do peak through same as for the brown sugar. Personally didn't taste much to any notes of Lime but overall enjoyed this cup of coffee in the morning." (5 out of 5)

"Brewed using a 1:14 ratio in my chemex. This coffee is sugary sweet while having a light note of sour apple on the side of the tongue. Clean and fruity with beautiful aromas and no apparent bitterness, this coffee makes for a comforting cup to relax with over a nice book." (4 out of 5)

"I just saw it is sold out! I was online to buy a holiday roast and thought I would get a bag of this as well to have as my afternoon cup. I will have to wait I guess. So GOOD! This is such a full-on chocolate lovers cup. It is very tea like, but still holds it's own with its bittersweetness." (5 out of 5)

"The best coffee I've ever tasted (seriously I'm not kidding). The chocolate notes balance well with the lime to bring a bittersweetness to the beans. I had a sample of this and already used up in one day because I love it so much. Will be trying more from this brand." (5 out of 5)

"Not only does it tastes good, it smells good too! I was drinking it when my brother came home from work. He smelled the coffee and immediately walked into my room to take a sip (He said "Yum!" and took 2 more sips). It has a chocolately cinnamony flavor that balances well with the slight citrus. " (5 out of 5)

"The coffee smelled like a pie with very generous dusting of cinnamon. The coffee tastes clean, mild, with complexity of flavors. Moderate citrus mostly orange sweetness and acidity with minimal bitterness. Light tea like body. Limes comes through as it cooled town. Citrus complexity lingers. " (5 out of 5)

"Very clean. Silky mouth-feel; dry afterwards. I don't have a refined palate; I avoided reading the notes until after I tasted. I got white tea, although I found it strange, until I saw that Kuma described it likewise. subtle peaches on the nose for me. Comforting; tasty but maybe too mellow" (3 out of 5)

"This was a great coffee. Of the four that we received, everyone in our office thought this was the best and was already ready for a full bag of it. You can definitely taste the hint of citrus and chocolate in this coffee. Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised." (5 out of 5)

"New to the Bean Box subscription! Got Kuma Coffee in my Light Roast Sample box, it by far was my favorite of the four! All great options but Kuma was outstanding. The hint of citrus and chocolate really just complemented each other so well! Highly recommend this one! " (5 out of 5)
