The Birds & Bees was carefully roasted for you by Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Co. A South and Central American blend of certified Organic and Fair Trade coffees, this cup is fantastically bold, with notes of caramel, toast, and roasted nuts.
We liked this one! Flavors are strong, but it was still an easy cup to drink. While we had been feeling overwhelmed by all the caramel in the past coffees - this one didn't seem to overpower the taste at all. Some cups did taste a little bitter, but nothing to make us dislike it overall.
Full flavor, but a little harsh/burnt tasting.
We liked the notes of this coffee.
This was an ok coffee for me. I like dark and nutty so this held up to cream well. Wasn't bitter or astringent at all. I wouldn't order it again tho.
Has a little small after taste not sure about
Very well balanced. Full mouth feel. We enjoyed this a lot!
This one was a hit with the lab!
Love the smokey sweetness, one of my favorites so far
this is OK in espresso but excellent in regular coffee, so much so that I think I will be brewing with mostly pour-over method with this batch. the flavors are strong, well-balanced, with a sweet but not over-powering after taste.
At first sip, it was nice but the finish is a little too bright/sour.
Delicious blend that got better towards the end of the bag; however, I believe these beans were a little over-roasted.
Despite the description I don't find this to be bold. I wasn't wowed by the flavor. In fact, I found it quite mild.
Flavor was great and also produced a very "creamy" espresso.
This is still bad and not close to what I have commented that my like is for the taste and the roast...

We have REALLY loved these beans! Misto nailed our preferences perfectly with this shipment. Not too bitter and though this description lists it as a dark roast, it's definitely closer to a medium. Our favorite blend thus far.
This coffee was outstanding. It was very well balanced and smooth. Enjoyed this blend very much.
The coffee does have a very good bold taste nutty taste. However, seems like it's missing something. Perhaps if the beans were a darker roast it will give it the spicier taste its missing.
good but nothing amazing
excellent balance. like my cup slightly fruitier, but all in all super delicious
Man I don't know what it was, but I just couldn't get this to taste right. I think it was maybe just a little dark for my taste.
Loved this coffee! Definitely had the flavor profile I like and was super drinkable. I did notice that the texture of the coffee was a little thin. Would be good to try a coffee that is just one type (not a blend) and has a little more "oomph" or body to it in the texture. Loving what I've tried to far!
I liked this better than the first coffee. Both struck me as being light and pleasant, this coffee a little less so, but I think I'd like to move on to something with a stronger flavor profile
Good cup of coffee
I found this coffee relatively mild compared to my traditional daily brew. Good caramel taste, but I think I want something darker and more chocolate like for my home cup. I took this on vacation with me for several days, and it was the perfect travel brew. Without access to a scale, I was able to make a consistently good brew. I would give this coffee a 3.5 for home use and a 4 on the road.
This is more my style! I love the dark, bold flavor while still not being a true dark roast. The caramel flavor is nice too. This is the area of flavor that I'm looking for. Would like to try a couple more similar to this flavor profile.
Way too bold. Not a fan.
I prefer the first coffee over this one, though I'm not sure how to articulate why. This one was more bland, by comparison.
I feel like this tastes very similar to the last coffee you sent. It is nice and mild, not too bitter and just the right amount of sweet. Goes down easy
Better than previous. Slightly burnt. Prefer less oil on the surface to prevent clogs in grinder. Maybe slightly burnt.
Not as good as the first, a little on the bitter side and the flavor wasn't as full as I would like,doesn't quite pack a punch - 3.5 Stars
Did not like
this has been my favorite so far
Smooth and enjoyable. I liked the darkness. I typically enjoy coffees that are fruity, like Ethiopians.
Bland & light
Delicious blend - really enjoyed the caramel notes in this coffee!
notes of caramel and nuts were great, coffee tasted good too but ultimately my everyday calls for a little less bold.
Liked it, but wasn't quite as bold as I thought.
A very standard medium/dark roast coffee. I found this roast to be a bit on the burnt but not overwhelmingly so.
I really like this coffee. It tasted very "standard" and no-nonsense. Probably one of the best day-to-day, routine types of coffee. Something I would enjoy everyday for breakfast.
pretty smooth but has a bitter aftertaste
Really good cup of coffee!
Very good, flavorful and smooth. Best one yet!
I like this coffee but I have to add 10 gm more of coffee to get a decent brew. I like a richer coffee.
Beautiful bloom and rich flavor. Low acidity which I loved. Hint of toast and nuts was perfect for the fall weather.
Decent flavor, but making it pour over or French press yields a very sour taste.
This coffee has a nice bloom, and brews up nutty and just a little smoky without being too bitter.
Definitely darker than our first selection, which we loved! Could even be a little darker and bolder. We love the richness of this coffee.
It was a little too much toasted flavor for my likes.
This just wasn't doing anything for me.
This coffee tastes and smells great at first, but I find a bitter aftertaste. It seemed a little too strong for my preference, so I tried grinding it a little coarser, and tried using a little less than usual....but that bitter aftertaste is still there.
The caramel notes definitely come through, but this one has a touch more bitterness/roastiness than we generally prefer, and it lingers as an aftertaste.
One of my favorites so far. Kicks strong, tastes strong, and is bold without being bitter. This is what I look for with coffee.
delicious. I love the low acidity. Very smooth with some nutty flavor. Would love something just a LITTLE stronger but scared to try anything new because this is so smooth and tasty! Seth I would love a perfect 5...you up for the challenge??
Really like it, especially for pour over and ice coffee
To me, the coffee seems, "watery", even when adding extra beans. The roasted nut flavor is not as strong as I would like it to be.
Awesome, just like the rest of Kaldi's.
This coffee is the MVP of the coffee world. It’s not trying to be anything except what it is – extraordinary coffee. No hints of this, undercurrents of that, or aroma of the other. Full bodied, with a nutty aftertaste. Overall smooth and not too bitter or acidic. 10/10 will drink again.
Right balance on acidity and darkness. Flavorful to boot.
Somewhat a "green" aroma and flavor, not a rich tasting coffee, somewhat bland
Great overall taste, but could be just a bit darker.
We may have to change our subscription settings. This too was a little too mild and sweet.
Good coffee for anytime.
I really liked this one. Real nutty, and goes well with breakfast in the morning (usually toast and eggs). Made with Aeropress, inverted.
I enjoyed this coffee. I still don't have much to baseline it with, but it was very flavorful and bold. So far, so good!
What a great package design. The coffee is definitely bold and rich. It goes down smoothly and has a nutty decadence that is perfect for early morning sipping with mug in one hand and book in the other.
Smooth coffe with hints of caramel,nuts, and molasses. Those looking for a milder dark coffee should love this blend. Rating 4.0
Unfortunately this coffee was not for me. To me, it has a marshmallow aspect that I did not care for. I'm sure there are others that will love it, however.
This was good, but lacked the depth we are looking for.
Jackie and Nicko
sweet , carmel notes - not my favorite as i like the deep, earthy notes
but still a good cup
Lynn and Guerry
This is a great cuppa. dark, full body, no bitterness. we are completely enjoying it.
This one was a little mild for me. Still very good. It will not go to waste
Great refreshing coffee, one of my favorite so far.
Great pourover coffee. Clean and sweet with great body. Loved it.
