This is the Breakfast Blend brought to you by Topeca Coffee Roasters. A blend of coffees from Topeca's two farms, this coffee is made to be a well balanced cup, sure to get you up and where you need to be in the morning. This coffee was grown in the Santa Ana region of El Salvador by Emilio Lopez Diaz. This fully washed blend of coffees was grown at an altitude of 1,000 - 1,500 meters and the lots consisted of Red Bourbon and Pacas varieties. This cup is fantastically balanced, with notes of honey, cinnamon and a bright apple acidity.
Light and flavorful - the first thing we noticed was orange/citrusy flavors finishing with a bit more earthy, nutty, cocoa flavors. The light, almost herbal qualities reminded us almost of tea (in a good way). I thought this was a good afternoon blend and could pair well with a light breakfast/lunch such as fruit, yogurt, avocado, toast, etc.
For me this was just okay. To be fair I probably should've reviewed it while drinking it instead of now. I did remember that usually the breakfast blends were not strong enough for me.
tasted sour? was not good at all.
Creamy and delicious!
OK coffee but not very strong or flavorful.
This was light. It had a sweet tobacco note, but didn't hit anything we said we were looking for.
Earthy with a hint of sweet and a nice small bite.
Wonderful, perfectly balanced!
Clean taste but boring flavor. Not a very interesting coffee
Loved the flavor, but I think I'd prefer something a bit stronger.
Very basic. Good breakfast coffee but not that great iced.
Delicious! so smooth I thought it had milk in it the first time I tried it.
My favorite so far
This was supes delicious. I was pretty sad to see this bag come to an end.
Weak; hard to taste
Really flavorful and light, perfect balance and notes!!
Love this one. Balanced and perfect!

While we always enjoy trying new flavors and varieties, this coffee was a bit too mild for our taste. I drink my coffee black while my husband prefers lots of cream and we both felt the flavor was too weak. Interesting blend but not our favorite.
This coffee tastes tart and acidic, like a Granny Smith apple. Personally, I prefer darker roasts.
Between a 3 and 4. I would lean towards 3 though. The flavor is a little bitter and a tad burnt-ish but overall I liked it. I would say I like the Organic blend more but it is a toss up really.
This light brown coffee tastes sour. The flavor complexity is there, the balance, and the cleanliness of the cup. Nevertheless, the first taste, the sour acidity is a real turn off.
The cup I had was smooth.. I think I want a bath with more flavor next time- or maybe I need to brew stronger?
Review is similar to 1st coffee received. Ok, but still bland.
I prefer medium roast to light roast. Thanks
really enjoyed this roast a lot. it had a good mouth feel, could taste the notes perfectly.
It indeed is a well balanced cup. I usually like things a bit darker but this is perhaps the exception because it is so well balanced and deliciously drinkable.
It's good coffee, we are just ones who like a little darker roasts
Omg, best coffee I have every had, smooth sweet and balanced, my wife even had some and complimented on how yummy it taste. Great job mistobox
Tasty, but seems more like a tea than a coffee.
This was such a bright cup. Like an apple muffin right out of the bag. a nice contrast to the weather. I didn't enjoy this one hot as much as I did an iced Chemex. I'd have to say this was a warmer weather coffee for me.
Not too fruity and the cinnamon and honey notes are nice.
A little too bitter for me. Not as smooth as I would like.
A light breakfast blend coffee that tastes good. However It's almost too light to serve with milk. Not a good choice for bold coffee drinkers.
This isn't very enjoyable as an espresso.
:/ This is the only one I would not prefer again. The coffee had a nice taste to it, but it is a weaker blend. Took a lot of grounds to make it strong enough. My ultimate blend is somewhere in the middle of espresso and light. Maybe a a medium/dark. I surely drank it up though, just took a lot more grounds
Just OK, got better over time. I made it as a double espresso with an Aeropress.
This coffee was fantastic, I really enjoyed the lighter notes in it. This coffee had an incredible nose, and was a wonderful way to start my mornings.
Soft at first but it grew on us. Balanced flavor profile with prominent apple notes. More pronounced flavors from pour over.
The nose on this blend resembled something akin to moist earth or sweet herbs. When brewed, the color appeared to be closer to a burnt orange than dark brown. The flavor was not deep, but slightly sweet with a touch of acidity. I think this blend was a bit too light and sweet for my taste, but I enjoyed the almost creamy mouthfeel.
