"Pretty good dark roast, has a subtle cedar hint with a great depth that’s not too smoky."

"Great coffee. Robust yet smooth. Brewed in french press. Typically enjoy lighter roasts, bu this darker roast is excellent. Would recommend this as a good classic cup of black coffee with full creamy flavor with a slight nuttiness."

"This is a well-balanced coffee. Nice and nutty without being overpowering. "

"nutty and smooth. I enjoyed this coffee quite a bit. It's a great standard, middle level roast."

"Woody, earthy flavor, darker flavor for sure. Didn't really taste the nutty flavor until I added some creamer. Not bad but not great."

"Nice strong cuppa in the french press. Quite a bit of flavors happening, the cedar is strong. "

"Very aromatic with nuts and cocoa. Very smooth with a bit of citrus in the finish. Will definitely order again"

"It’s a good medium-dark roast. I think the only thing that was a negative for me was the cedar essence. Anything tree on my tastebuds leaves me feeling like the flavor profile is lacking. Complex in it’s flavor, most darker roast lovers will like this roast!"

"3.7 / 5 Slightly bitter, quakery. An air of cedar is present, but faint. Somewhat nutty, slightly spicy. Can't shake the quaker flavor."

"This wasn't too bad! It went stale pretty quickly. I did enjoy the taste while it lasted, though. Very nutty and bitter, but still soothing, warm, and comforting."

"I made this in my chemex. It is full of flavour and depth. Smooth and tasty."

"This was good, but not one of my favorites. I brewed with a pour over, but found it to lack in flavor!"

"Good earthy flavor with a little spicy aftertaste. Very pleasant!"

"Was very good full bodied. nutty and creamy this cup can be a everyday cup for me. "

"LOVE it!! Such a perfect dark roast, so fresh and full of flavor. Only got a sample bag but would definitely buy a larger bag down the road."

"Amazing flavor however you prepare it. Great as a french press for a full bodied flavor as well as an espresso. Definitely would get this again."

"A wonderfully unique blend of flavors. I loved it. "

"I loved the spice and earthiness in this one, not too acidic"

"Love the deep bold flavor. Creamy and nutty, not bright ,which I love."

"Brewed using aeropress, chemex, and a v60 (hot and iced). All methods were very good. The tasting notes were spot on with a nutty flavor while drinking out of a cedar mug. Very good bold roast."

"Bold and complex roast. It definitely has a nutty taste as described, but I didn't pick up the cedar very much. Still a good brew that I'd recommend. "

"We drank multiple cups of this coffee, bolder taste. "
