"I usually enjoy dark roasts, but this blend was too dark for me and the flavor was a little unusual. I used the whole bag (which should count for something) but wouldn't order it again. " (3 out of 5)

"It's hard to find a roast my husband and I can agree on. The smell of grinding these beans in the morning is my favorite part of waking up. This roast is a full bodied brew that packs a rich cupful of flavor. " (5 out of 5)

"This was an okay coffee. I prefer dark roast but this had a unique flavor that didn't taste all that great to me. Due to its inexpensive cost i would recommend this coffee. " (3 out of 5)

"Great coffee. The taste is very bold, classic, and just a really good taste. You can tell this is roasted well, and it doesn't taste cheap in the slightest bit. Will definitely buy some in the future-would also like to try more from this company. " (4 out of 5)

"I don't usually drink blends. This tasted muddled to me; hard to pin down. Very earthy and smoky, with a long aftertaste like citrus rind. Would make a great cup for a misty mountain morning in the woods. Other notes are a minor nuttiness; and clay. Bold but not bursting with character imho" (3 out of 5)

"I normally don't care for dark coffee but this was a very enjoyable coffee to drink. If you like dark roasts you really need to try this one. It is very full-bodied and is unique. I was only able to drink small cups of this one since i can only handle so much dark coffee. " (4 out of 5)

"For a dark coffee, this was the weakest tasting coffee out of all of the samples that we received. It was disappointing, as we generally drink darker roasts in our office. There was a subtle chocolate flavor, but it was really really hard to even tell that it was there." (3 out of 5)

"A very dark tasting coffee. Was very rich, although not bitter. Almost dark-chocolate tasting. We give it the low rating because we don't appreciate very dark coffee." (2 out of 5)

"This coffee is an absolute Seattle classic, and in many ways set the standard for dark roasting here in the Pacific Northwest. It makes a very rich cup, that holds up very well to both milk and sugar. Comfort coffee!"

"This was a good brew, but it was a tad bit too bold for me at the moment, and I didn't get any hints or notes of anything, this was just a nice bold plain coffee. Perfect for people who do not want to worry about what their coffee tastes like, this tastes exactly like bold coffee. " (4 out of 5)

"Not my fave, but pretty good! The flavors aren't very complex to me, but it was pleasingly rich. For my taste, it was a bit too dark for daily consumption, BUT it makes for an excellent latte. Made in Aeropress, 175 degree water, tried it as stir then press as well as ~2 min steep." (4 out of 5)

"I would say that this coffee was a disappointment, but it tasted about how I expected from the smell. Disclaimer- I don't like dark roasts.

"In a world of single origins its good to see roasters who are skilles in the art of blending. Roasters choice is a nice twist on the traditional Mocha/ Java blend. The addition of high altitude Central/ South American coffies give this coffee a definite completness both in body and flavor." (5 out of 5)
