Bean Box Breakdown

Sweet yet mellow, with a pleasant sugary tomato flavor and a fruit-juicy mouthfeel. Brew on a gray morning and remember: somewhere in the world the sun is shining, coffee cherries are ripening, and someone is smiling.

Zoka Coffee Story

This Kenyan coffee from the Nyeri region has flavors of sunburst tomato, a medium body, and bright acidity. A great example of why coffee from Kenya is so universally enjoyed.

"Brewed using a chemex. Surprised by the lack of fruit in an African coffee, a little boring to me and I didn't really pick up on the tomato flavor. V60 tasted a little better, but still kind of bland. " (3 out of 5)

"Good intense flavored cup. Fruity, sweet, yet still bold and dark enough to pack a smooth punch. Definitely worth ordering. " (4 out of 5)

"Very unique. Strong earthy/some have said tomato-forward flavor. Worth a try to broaden one's horizons. Not your classic roasted coffee flavor. " (2 out of 5)

"My pallet generally doesn't like the juicier coffees, however, I brewed this on a V60 and I loved it! It is very mellow though, definitely not for everyone." (5 out of 5)

"I didn't like this one, but my wife loved it. They're not kidding when they list "tomato" as a flavor that comes out of this. It certainly had that! I don't really like tomatoes to begin with so take it for what you will. " (4 out of 5)

"This coffee was fascinating. The notes of tomato were definitely evident and I would not have guessed that tomato notes would be enjoyable in a coffee. However, it was very, very enjoyable- so much so that I ordered a bag afterward. " (5 out of 5)

"I wasn't expecting to like this coffee as much as I did. I thought tomato notes, really? I would not have ever said that's the profile, personally. I did enjoy this for a medium middle of day blend. " (4 out of 5)

Bean 25 Bean 25 Bean 25 Bean 25

"Slightly earthy and woodsy. Wouldn't pick out tomato on my own, but with the tasting notes I can pick it up. Slightly tart on the back end. With some brown sugary notes, perhaps. Not one of my favorites, but still a delicious coffee on a cool fall day. Drank with a splash of heavy cream. " (4 out of 5)
