Bean Box Breakdown

It's rare to see Cup of Excellence-quality coffee from Brazil pass through the U.S. and, after trying this one, we asked Middlefork to put a little aside, just for us. Lots of great coffee comes out of the Carmo de Minas region, within the foothills of the Sierra de Mantiqueira mountains, but this one takes the... chocolate chip cookie! We nicknamed this one the "cookie dough coffee" because of its distinct sweet cookie flavor. Perfectly roasted for a comforting toastiness, just shy of tasting dark: a smooth, medium roast with appealing balance. A real treat for coffee lovers, and a true gem from the world's largest coffee-producing country.

Middle Fork Roasters Story

We are lucky to have gotten our hands on this excellent Brazilian micro-lot, a Cup of Excellence contender from this past year with an average score in the 90s. Canaan Estate is a small farm, producing coffee since the early 1900s, recently upgraded and improved with more plants, education, and processing equipment. We're the only roaster in the U.S. with this particular coffee and we're keeping our fingers crossed about getting some next year too! Varietal Yellow Catuai, dry natural process. This year's lot is extremely low acid, with a front-forward profile of earthy, nutty chocolate that leads into a caramelized sugar flavor. Incredibly smooth, clean finish.

"Even with a splash of cream and sugar, I'm not sure I really get the whole cookie dough thing. It was smooth and sweet, a solid cup to have with breakfast, but this coffee didn't do anything remarkable for me. " (4 out of 5)

"I enjoyed these beans alot more than some of the others that were in my box this month. I used drip for this and the smell of the coffee as it brewed made my mouth water. It had hints of caramel that gave it this sweetness that i didn't mind at all. " (4 out of 5)

"I tried this coffee and I've got to say, I really enjoyed the rich flavor that came from the brew. I use a french press and heated the filtered water (per beanbox instructions) to 200F and ground the beans to a nice semi-fine grind. It was flavorful and had just a hint of chocolate.

"This coffee reminds me of my favorite bean, a medium roast from Honduras. The description is very true to its taste - like a sweet chocolate chip cookie with very distinct brown sugar notes. Tastes great with pour-over and aeropress, and I can't wait to try it with different brew methods! " (5 out of 5)

"This was a very nice coffee that I thoroughly enjoyed. I usually can't drink black coffee, but this one was fine. My only problem was that with my normal amount of coffee beans used in my french press, the coffee was a little weak for my taste. Overall it still makes for a great, high-quality cup" (4 out of 5)

"Although this was not one of my favorites, it had a nice and light nutty flavor. I did not get much of the cookie dough flavor that was mentioned. But, it would definitely be a coffee to help those wanting to broaden their coffee palate. Brewed hot in drip coffee maker." (3 out of 5)

"Very mellow flavor profile. The flavor notes were very subtle and not overpowering. This is a great coffee for people wanting to start branching out from typical store bought big brands." (4 out of 5)

"This reminded me of a dark roast that lacked real body. The cup had a distinct bitterness and I struggled to find the cookie dough sweetness that was described. Brewed with a V60." (2 out of 5)

"We had this a few days ago and it was delightful! I definitely felt like it tasted like a nutty cookie! I added a bit of milk and sugar and it was amazing. It's one of our favorites for sure! (I feel like EVERY coffee we've gotten so far is a favorite lol!)" (5 out of 5)

"I sent this coffee to a friend to have around during my visit. We brewed this coffee in standard electric brewer and it made a good cup of coffee. We enjoyed the nutty profile.

"4.6/5 (Excellent) - The essence of "home". Method: Pourover, Black This roast offers very savory pepper on the nose that develops into a surprisingly 'present' caramel. On the tongue, this deceptively complex roast begins savory, and progresses into a phenomenally clean "easy" caramel flavor. " (5 out of 5)

Star fullStar fullStar fullStar fullStar full

"This was the first coffee I tried upon receiving my first box and I have fallen in love. I personally use the pour over method to make coffee and all of the sweet chocolatey flavors were extremely evident in this roast. I see this being my favorite coffee for a long time to come." (5 out of 5)

"The first and only coffee I've tried so far in my beanbox but its AMAZING! I typicaly find medium roast to be a little acidic but not this one, it's very smooth and naturally sweet. Made in my french press and I was only dissappointed when I realized I drank the last sip" (5 out of 5)

Star fullStar fullStar fullStar full

"Pretty good coffee, but not my favorite from Middle Fork. Got it because we were excited that it had a chocolate chip cookie taste, but it didn't. Still, it's a smooth, bold roast that I'd drink again." (4 out of 5)

"i had this as espresso and in the french press. it was a nice rich coffee that only needed the slightest touch of sugar and milk (i usually drink capuccino style coffee or cream only) i didnt get a lot of "flavors" coming out of it, but it was nice for an everyday coffee" (4 out of 5)

"I am so glad I bought a big bag of this roast! Also, I am even happier that I hid the bag. I have been hoarding it and making my own Chemex in the morning with this roast. I LOVE this roast. You seriously had me at cookie dough, but there is so much more flavour too. A GREAT morning cup of joe!" (5 out of 5)
