"Fantastic flavor that's not too light and not too dark! Definitely one of the best samples I have received so far. I will likely purchase full bags of this in the future. Made using Breville BaristoPro XL as a latte." (5 out of 5)

"The blend was quite delicious. It is quite complex, the citrus and chocolate hints are quite noticeable. Not as bold/dark blend is I prefer, but still a very pleasant taste. " (4 out of 5)

"Excellent cup - very chocolatey. Definitely worth a try if you want something with a variety of tasting notes - caramel and chocolate being at the forefront for an overpour." (5 out of 5)

"This was way to 🍫 chocolately to drink as a regular cup. I think I'd loooooove it cold brewed. I may order a bag to make using my toddy. " (4 out of 5)

"Not my absolute favorite, but definitely a fan. Deep flavor, mix of fruity and nutty. Not too dark, not too light. I would recommend to any coffee lover. Thick, smooth shot" (4 out of 5)

"Great blend for espresso. Quite forgiving and easy to dial in. Within two shots I had gotten the notes I was looking for; quite a depth of flavor on this one. Although I preferred it as an espresso, brewing it via Aeropress gave it a wonderfully "spread out" character that allowed all the different flavors to shine through. Highly recommended.

"Absolutely Amazing! Great coffee with Chemex or automatic drip, but the best with Espresso. This is such a great coffee to make lattes, Americanos, or mochas with. I love the flavors of this coffee. Ordered several times and will order again." (5 out of 5)

"Used for espresso. Would really shine with $1000+brewing equipment, but my grinder does not have enough hp to achieve optimum grind. It's still very good, but I know what I am missing. It's good enough you'll think it lessened by adding sugar. Worth a repeat, but will try something new for now." (4 out of 5)

"Ian - Velton is a perfectionist, and this is one of my favorite coffees. As for the grinder, there comes a certain point in everyone's coffee brewing journey, where the quality of the grind can become a limiting factor in experiencing the coffee at its best, especially when it's done as an espresso!"

"Latte: 200ºF. The citrus and strawberry were a little too overpowering for my taste, but it had a nice bright finish ending with notes of choc. and caramel. If you like fruity coffees then you'll probably like Bonsai Blend. If you're not a fan of fruity coffees, I wouldn't buy a whole bag." (3 out of 5)

"A nice caramel profile with a bright finish, Bonsai's flavor is pronounced yet not overpowering. It's very well balanced in lattes, and I would certainly buy it again. Personally, I enjoyed it more when using slightly more grounds-per-shot to bring out the flavor more than my normal dosage does." (4 out of 5)

"Brewed using a V60. For such a smooth coffee you can still pick up on the caramel/chocolate/and slight citrus flavor. This must be amazing as an espresso. Will get another big bag soon." (5 out of 5)

"I do love a sweet coffee! With multiple fruity notes it was a nice morning coffee. I wished it was a little darker roast to showcase the flavors more but, overall a wonderful coffee. " (4 out of 5)

"The espresso had a wonderful texture and mouthfeel. I expected the caramel but was pleasantly surprised by the bright berry and citrus notes. With milk, strawberry and chocolate were more pronounced. Tasted best using 20g of beans to pull 40g of espresso in ~33 seconds at 203 degrees. Very forgiving" (5 out of 5)

"This is a beautiful blend -- a wonderful caramel taste with a hunt of chocolate and hazelnut. I know they recommend this as an espresso, but I use it this as a pour over and a touch of heavy cream. It is a lighter blend. Love it. " (5 out of 5)
