You don't have to curse like a sailor to brew like one! This seaworthy holiday blend from the Longshoreman's Daughter is a deep, full-bodied cup, with nutty dark chocolate, a hint of baked plum, and a savory molasses-like finish. The perfect fuel for any winter's journey, whether by boat, by car, or by sleigh...
Holy ship it's good! Our first true holiday blend is medium-dark roasted to satisfy, with notes of creamy chocolate, almond, plum cake, and a muscovado sugar finish.
"Not sure they should have labeled this seasonal as nothing stood out as holiday-ish. However this is probably my favorite dark roast. A full bodied cup where the creamy chocolate notes and almond plum stood out. I did make this during the holidays for brunch and added spices. "
"My favorite to date! This tastes how Christmas coffee should taste! It paired perfectly with all the baked goods we enjoyed during the season. "
"I wanted to like this one so much, but nothing stood out in the flavor profile. The roast was fine, but it just didn't have anything special I'd call seasonal. "
"This was an excellent coffee! Deep flavor, nice aroma, and not bitter. One of my favorites!"
"What an amazing dark blend! This is one of my two favorite blends that I have tried so far. Fans of dark roasts will definitely love this!"
"This coffee had that great taste of a strong coffee. The beans even had that super dark look with the shine that you know is going to be a deliciously strong coffee. Definitely not for those who don’t enjoy coffee taste. "
"Had a very odd smell—not something I would have gravitated toward. "
"One of my all-time favorites. The brown-sugar notes come through clearly and make this a great coffee to pair with breakfast. "
"Got this in my box even though it wasn’t listed on my profile. Glad I did! Tasty notes of almond coming through this darker roast with a dash of sweet. Would order again!"
"This was one of my favorites so far! Distinct nutty taste. Mild acidity. Sweet and bold flavor- Great with or without creamer!"
"Not bad, but I felt that the flavors were subdued. Maybe too dark of a roast for me. Had a sweet (not overwhelming) flavor to it that was pleasant, I thought it was like a mild molasses. I felt that it had a very dark chocolate taste to it, like a dark unsweetened cocoa. "
"This was my first purchase and I'm disappointed. Out really didn't have the holiday flavor I waa expecting. It was pretty bland and tasted like regular coffee. "
"Brewed this with my Bunn coffee maker and it made the whole house smell delicious! Really got the sweet elements while retaining that deep flavor you expect from a dark roast."
"This is a good coffee, but it’s pretty standard. I get the sweetness, but I wish the nuttiness and plum stood out a bit more. I was expecting something a little more unique."
"Amazing! Dark and a little sweet, and one of my favorite bean box orders yet. Would love to see it more often."
"We truly enjoyed this holiday blend - so much so that we ordered more right away. It is a true medium-dark roast that is smooth and delicious. "
