"Great coffee! I received this is a box with Velton's Mexican Nayarita, also lots of berries. Slate's Ethiopian here tastes like riper fruit. Fun to compare them side by side!" (4 out of 5)

"This is firmly in my all time top 5 list. It's one of the greats — don't miss it! So flavorful and so smooth. I usually have a hard time tasting the note that everyone keeps talking about, but this one is all berries for sure. Yum!!!" (5 out of 5)

"One of the best Ethiopian coffees I have had. Very fruity and light taste with very little acidity to the finish, made it a real easy coffee to sit back and sip on. Brewed on a drip coffee machine, nothing special except for the coffee. " (4 out of 5)

"Well-balanced cup (made it on a clever dripper with a 3-min brew). Less acidic than many of the Ethiopians I have tried, but a good cup nonetheless. " (3 out of 5)

"Made one of the best pour over flavors I have had in a while. Totally could smell the strawberry and cocoa right as you open the bag and grind. To me, the blueberry isn't as apparent but the chocolately strawberry flavor is all there for me! I might end up buying a bag." (5 out of 5)

"The smells is what hits you, a definite aroma punch of Strawberry. I tried french press and chemex brewing for this roast but only had a 5 bean taste rating one clear time. If I could get the one solid cup I will chalk the lack of consistent love for the flavor (and price) to user error. " (3 out of 5)

"This coffee smells amazing. As per the description, Strawberry and dark fruit. A strawberry BOMB is completely accurate. My nose literally crinkles. This is the second time I've received this in a Box, and it's even better this time. " (5 out of 5)

"Chemex pour-over tried on this. The tasting notes on this are spot on. Smell/flavor is highly strawberry-focused. Highly fruity, smooth, juicy, lightly grassy." (5 out of 5)

"Prepared in an AeroPress. They aren't kidding when they say it smells like a strawberry. The flavor is fantastic, berries, sweet and light. So often the flavors described in a review don't match the flavors you actually taste. That's not the case here. This one delivers as promised!"

"Brewed in a French press with sub-boiling water. Very aromatic, smells of earth, nuts, and some red berries. Bright with fresh strawberry/raspberry and blackberry on the taste, followed by a subtle natural peanut butter taste and dusty dark cocoa. Light bodied but a little chewy. Long finish. Nice."

"The first time I smelled, and then tasted this, I was in disbelief at the almost magical way it conjures up strawberry and blueberry. This roast stands alone as one of the most unique I've ever had. Great for a special occasion, after dessert." (5 out of 5)
