"A decidedly dark and bold roast that features a hint of smokiness and smokiness and an earthly aftertaste. Great if you want something rice and robust." (4 out of 5)

"This coffee was a little on the bitter side and not one of the favorites on our "Bean Box" list. We tried brewing it in the auto drip instead of the French press, but had the same result. Just not a fan. It smelled amazing though, so maybe others will like this stronger roast better than we did. " (3 out of 5)

"Brewed in a French press. I found this roast to have a nice complexity but really didn't love how each cup finished. Definitely on the stronger side for a dark roast so it'll hit you right away. " (3 out of 5)

"Didn't love it but it's not exactly my style. I didn't exactly taste the fruit, maybe slightly chocolatey..." (3 out of 5)

"Brewed with a French press, notable complexity. It starts with a medium body, sweeter profile and finishes with a stronger, darker profile (some hints of chocolate). It sticks with you for a few moments but doesn't leave a lingering dark aftertaste. A strong coffee that will pick you up. " (3 out of 5)

"Brewed with French press as recommended. Very well balanced dark roast. Has a heavy finish. Prepare yourself for this one though. Definitely a good eye opener, Monday morning blend!" (3 out of 5)

"Some documentaries are bland but I do enjoy a good Killer Whale documentary. Those poor seals get tossed! I found this blend bland so I tossed in some roasted cocoa nibs to enrich its flavor content." (2 out of 5)

"As advertised but very mild. I may have over brewed it a few minutes because it came out a little bit bitter for me but it's a very soft medium roast so even with a bit of bitterness it was still good. " (4 out of 5)

"Received a medium roast gift box. This was my favorite of the 4. It is complex with its medium-dark notes. I drink my coffee without cream or sweeteners and use a coffee press. The currant stands out, slightly earthy, very smooth to taste and the chocolate aroma is nice. I recommend for sure. " (5 out of 5)
