Bean Box Breakdown

A dynamic coffee, tasting of sweet red fruit with a sparkling, champagne-like brightness. During a season where it’s better to give than receive, this is a little gift you can brew for yourself.

Velton's Coffee Roasting Company Story

We put a lot of time and attention into creating our Holiday Blend. This year’s coffee is a 50/50 mix of Java Sunda Hejo Badak and Kenya Kagumo AA, for drinkable cup that’s bright yet approachable. Notes of sweet toffee, melted chocolate, candied boysenberry, and currant.

"So far, of the 8 samples I've tried, this is my favorite coffee bean. It's sweet and sharp, but not too strong and not too light. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in a lighter-medium brew." (5 out of 5)

"This was an ok coffee. A bit darker tasting than I was expecting it to be since it was a light roast and not very sweet. " (3 out of 5)

"I'm quite surprised with the current reviews. This is a fantastic blend with really great flavor. The chocolate note is great, the smell is wonderful. If you like light roasts with hints of chocolate and berry, you will love this one." (5 out of 5)

"This is an AMAZING holiday brew. Dark and robust with a mellow aftertaste. The currant is the star of this show! Highly recommend!" (5 out of 5)

"Brewed as a pour over in my Chemex, this is a perfectly fine coffee. Overall, however, there is nothing terribly remarkable about it. No tasting note really stands out against the others. A good "nothing special, everyday" coffee to drink. " (3 out of 5)

"The balance and body of this coffee are nice, aroma and flavor notes aren't strong. Brewed best in a French Press where I could taste some fruity & cocoa notes when hot and the coffee was richer. Finer grind helped the flavor. Aftertaste was pleasant and it finished sweet." (3 out of 5)

"I prepared this as a pour over using a V60. I wasn't able to pick out the champagne or red currant notes and it didn't come off as overly fruity. Overall a good cup, just not one that I would seek out. " (3 out of 5)

"Just received the Holiday Blend from Bean Box. I brewed the coffee in my drip coffee maker. I couldn't really discern the chocolate syrup, toffee, boysenberry or red current. It smells good but I don't really taste anything listed in the taste notes." (2 out of 5)

"Loving the brightness of this holiday blend. The berry flavor has come out very well with my V60 for a great pick-me-up on cold mornings, but with warm chocolate notes that effect a soothing finish. So glad the Kenya AA is in this year's blend." (4 out of 5)

"Nice balanced bean holds up well to both espressos and macchiatos. " (3 out of 5)
