Diner Coffee done right. Boxcar Blend pays tribute to Water Avenue's historic location in Portland's chic industrial district. Bold and balanced, with lots of nutty chocolate and a toasty edge. Strong enough for a weekday morning, but smooth enough for the weekend. Add a dash of cream, if you like, and take it along on your commute! Just like your morning train, this roast will help you get wherever you need to be.
Boxcar is a blend of Central and South American coffees, for a hearty and sophisticated cup that will stand up well on its own or with cream and sugar. This coffee is there for you in the early A.M. when the train horn is just not enough to wake you up. Complex and well rounded, with notes of baker’s chocolate, walnut, sweet tobacco, and cinnamon.
"This was a good, bold dark roast. A lot of flavor - definitely woke me up in the morning. "
"Not my favorite coffee in the world. I understand the draw to a coffee such as this, but the "old home diner" feel of this coffee just did not appeal to me. It was great, but just didn't hit that special 'oomph.'"
"A decent blend but very mild if i had it again if grind the beans much finer to try and extract more Flavor."
"This blend is a solid set of beans that appease my preference for bold flavor. Nothing over the top, enjoyable at every sip."
"A little too dark for my taste. Brewed with a french press. "
"Solid roast, creamy, very masculine in a way. Perfect for espresso!"
"The tobacco taste in this was a little too strong for me. Just a weird lingering sweetness that I could do without."
"Good coffee. Mellow for a darker roast, was smooth and not acidic. Notes of chocolate with earthy flavor, nuttiness. Really liked it. "
"This dark roast is incredible, huge bold flavor but it is also easy to drink."
"Really good flavor, loved the earthy walnut flavor tones. Unfortunate I have a cold while sampling this one, I feel the flavor is probably much better than what I’m tasting. Smooth and good. "
"Didn't care too much for this coffee, the description sounds better than it tasted, a little lack luster in my opinion."
"No complaints other than to say it tasted like a pretty average cup of coffee. Nothing bad but nothing special either. Not on my buy again list."
"It's a good dark roast, no bitterness with a nice flavor. "
"Wasn't sure about this, because of the Sweet tobacco flavor note...but I literally didn't taste ANY of the flavor notes. It tasted bold, yet bland at the same time. This is the first time that I've never been able to taste ANY of the described flavors. I will probably let my housemate have this one."
"A little bit too rich and sweet for my liking. The sweetness isn't balanced by other flavor notes."
