Bean Box Breakdown

With its rich, smoky flavor and bright cherry punch, this dark roast is delicate, yet bold. Complex, and surprisingly sweet. A study in delicious duality.

Longshoreman's Daughter Coffee Story

A time capsule back to the 1980s, when we first fell in love with dark, bold, complex coffees. Notes of molasses, cocoa, ginger, and cherry, and a little bit nutty (winky face).

"A very bold and dark roasted coffee. I could taste the molasses and nutty flavors and even some hints of leather. Not a bad coffee, just not my favorite. " (2 out of 5)

"A very well-balanced coffee overall. Definitely my favorite in the sampler box I received. It's remarkably smooth for a Dark Roast with the dark cocoa with a hint of nutty/cherry coming through. I made a cold brew with Bearded Lady and it did not disappoint. Thumbs up! " (4 out of 5)

"This coffee is one of my favorites. It was my first Bean Box coffee, and I have a hard time straying from it to try others. It's smooth, with distinct molasses. I don't normally like anything cherry, but this flavor is well balanced. I use it for espresso and was impressed with the bold flavor." (5 out of 5)

"This is a delicious coffee, even if you're not a fan of dark roasts. The flavor is bold and rich without tasting too bitter. While it makes a great hot cup of coffee for the morning, it also makes a great cold brew if you want a smoother flavor and less acidity. " (5 out of 5)

"As others have said, this doesn't have the burnt quality many dark roasts seem to possess. Clarity of flavor, almost sugary, needs only a dash of milk for lightweights like me. " (4 out of 5)

"I usually do not like dark roasts, but this one was wonderfully delicate. Just a little bit of burnt flavor that is not overwhelming. Feels careful and thoughtful in execution. I also like the fruitiness and sweetness that comes through. I often reach for milk with the dark roasts but not this one." (4 out of 5)

"My favorite so far! I used to prefer dark roasts, but the more I drink lighter roasts the more I find darker roasts to be bitter and flat. This one is such an exception. Dark and rich and delicious. Great in the morning, and would be perfect after dinner for anyone who can take p.m. caffeine." (5 out of 5)

"Brewed at 200ºF, extraction lasted 40 seconds with a 5 second pre-infusion time. Definitely a new favorite espresso option. Tasted notes of cherry, caramel, & chocolate--but no ginger. Finished with a smoky, yet sweet full body flavor." (5 out of 5)

"A coffee that is proud to be dark. This blend is closer to a full city roast than say Italian or French, which is great because it allows the dark cherry fruit notes shine. There is an acidic presence in this blend that calls for attention and precision during brewing." (4 out of 5)
