The Day Tripper Blend was blended and roasted for you by Good Folks Coffee. Coffees from Colombia, Honduras, and Brazil were carefully chosen and blended together. Simple and straightforward, this coffee is intended to appeal to a wide audience of coffee lovers. Chocolate and caramel notes are the stars in this smooth, rich and balanced blend, this coffee is perfect for enjoying any time of day.
This is a very straightforward cup of coffee, and I have enjoyed it a lot. The chocolate and caramel notes blend in a very smooth way to produce a solid roast. In some ways, it almost tastes like a salted caramel mocha as a coffee itself.
Personally, nothing stood out super strong about the coffee, but it makes for a strong daily coffee.
Very nice. Brews with a nice froth in our Delonghi Magnifico expresso machine. Normally don't opt for flavored coffees but this is not over-powering.
Really enjoyed it.. My first "real" coffee though (I'd been using k-cups prior). So not much to compare it to. It came out quite good though.
Very smooth with notes of caramel and vanilla. Also has a great smell.
Solid coffee with notes of chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Could not taste the caramel note, but could pick it up on the nose.
This coffee is okay. The flavors are nice, but there is a little bit of a sour thing going on at the end after swallowing, for me. I don’t have a lot of experience with lighter coffees, though.
Hi there! I've only had one brew of this so far, so things might change over the week. That said, I thought it was pretty solid and I liked the roast level. The most significant bit of feedback I would have is that, while good, it wasn't really that notable. It might just be due to the balanced nature of the blend, but I wouldn't say there was a pronounced flavor or characteristic. The description says "simple and straightforward" and I think that's totally on point. I just wanted a liiiitle more substance. So definitely enjoyable, but I probably wouldn't seek it out as a must have.
My husband and I loved it. It fits our medium roast needs and is so easy to drink. You can just taste the quality.
Nice and sweet, but would prefer something darker next time
Can definitely taste the caramel! Won't blow your underpants off -
unoffensive but tasty.
Great aroma but the flavor wasn’t deep enough and I did not enjoy the sort sharp not it finishes on
Good quality beans that produced a very smooth cup. I thought overall this blend was good, but it leans a little more dark than I prefer. I wasn't ever really able to detect the chocolate or caramel notes, but I did get a sense of the richness in comparison to other roasts I've had.
Great Coffee. I have brewed it 3 times now and it has been a little tricky to me but I would attribute that to the less than accurate brewing methods I have when out to sea. I get a lot of the vanilla and chocolate, but I think the caramel note keeps coming out a little sour for me. Still adjusting what I can to fix it.
Thank you for the first coffee. I loved having fresh roasted coffee, which I am not used to. I liked this coffee, and I appreciated the flavors. I usually prefer something with a stronger kick and more acidic flavor.
It's not your fault, but I guess we like a darker and not-so-sweet coffee ("sweet" referring to the chocolate and caramel notes). No worries, however, we just gave it to our older daughter and she loves it! :)
It's a straightforward, chocolatey coffee, but has a gorgeous, deep finish at the end of each sip, both as pourover and cold brew. No surprises, just extremely well done for a staple blend.
There was a weird and subtle flavor I can't exactly put my finger on. The chocolate and caramel flavors were very nice but the base flavor reminded me of McDonald's coffee. (Not a huge fan of their coffee) I still enjoyed this coffee, its just not my new favorite or anything.
Very nice flavor, a bit sweet, but that could be my extraction time
So smooth and super delicious. Well made blend!
I really loved the smoothness of this coffee. I could absolutely drink it all day. It had good body and flavor. Definitely a new favorite!
Just a tad bit weak
This coffee was very drinkable and smooth, exactly as described. A good go-to for a tasty and straightforward cup of coffee. We brewed it in the clever dripper.
This is excellent- very smooth and easy to drink. I could drink something a bit richer/with more depth of flavor.
Pretty much loved this and drank it in half the time. Super pleasant taste and not acidic. Perfect for every day drinking.
Coffee subscriptions are new to me, but I thought this was a great blend to introduce me to the subscription with! For me, I liked how I could taste flavors in the coffee that were both bright and toasty at the same time. It also consistently had a wonderful aroma when brewed.
Can't wait to continue trying more types of coffee!
Great taste. I like the chocolate and caramel, but not very unique in terms of flavor/taste. I really enjoy some of the more floral or fruity blends, but I would definitely try this blend again. Really enjoyed it.
I'm a coffee snob. My family isn't. If I were to make coffee for my family, choosing this coffee would be step one. This coffee isn't fancy, appeals to many, and is a great pick for anyone and everyone.
Would prefer a darker roast.
Fruity, chocolatey and with a hint of savory flavor. Pretty decent. I do get some sour on the back-end, but not until it cools down.
Jessica and Justin
We really enjoyed the flavor of this one.
This coffee makes a great cup. It's very drinkable and I can see anybody who likes coffee liking the Day Tripper Blend. The blend of the different regions is well balanced with solid flavors. We loved drinking this coffee black, no cream needed. It is a well balanced cup, not terribly complex but we would buy it if we saw it at the store. Thanks for sharing!
While we like that the coffee is creamy n not bitter, we think it's a little sour. We don't mind trying out a slightly more oily n darker roast. But we definitely don't enjoy any tangy or sour taste in our coffee.
Thanks a lot.
This coffee is good--but doesn't have the rich full-bodied flavor of some of the others.
Overall, really liked this blend.
Easy to drink, not bitter or highly acidic
Ground it on the coarse setting of our burr grinder for the electric perc, but found myself wanting to put more grounds than normal in when brewing because the flavor seemed a bit watered down
Color wasn't terribly rich after adding cream (usually I go for a caramel color after cream and this one was closer to white even with a small amount of cream)
Thinking this blend might be better to drink after brewing via pour-over or french press?
This was good. Vanilla and caramel.
This coffee is good. It is a light coffee and has a lot of flavor.
Good coffee which grew on me and enjoyed the most with my mocha pot. In the french press the flavors were a bit dull or watered down. Overall I thought it was a very drinkable blend but nothing special or notable about the notes or aroma. Good baseline without nuance.
This is solid coffee with really smooth flavor. But frankly, it was a little underwhelming. Profile is right down the middle in pretty much all aspects, which is probably why it's perfectly described as "intended to appeal to a wide audience." Ideal to keep around for when the in-laws stay over or you otherwise need to make coffee for people who just want a balanced coffee, or who otherwise would only notice anything about their coffee if it was "bad".
I'm definitely all about "rich" flavors (as opposed to floral or fruity), such as the chocolate and caramel found here, but also things like toffee, graham cracker, oak, nuttiness, sweet tobacco, etc. I like how smooth and easy to drink this coffee is, but would love if it had a little more distinct flavor.
Pretty nice blend. Getting a bit of citrus on the end.
Excellent coffee. Would order again. very open to trying anything you want to send
I thought the caramel notes were very apparent and enjoyable - the only reason I did not give a five-star review was because the coffee was, as advertised, very straightforward. I think I would prefer a bit more complexity / a broader range of notes in the coffee.
Super great middle of the road coffee. We are enjoying it for our morning cup mostly. I enjoy the deeper flavors like chocolate and caramel. It's not very acidic and not fruity, which is nice.
Indeed, simple and straightforward but also rich and balanced enough to be my daily go-to blend.
I don't like caramel. However, I can respect the coffee for what it is; it does a good job of what it's supposed to do, but I just don't like it.
The description is spot on. It’s a classic cup of coffee that any coffee lover would enjoy on any day. We really enjoyed brewing it in single cup batches of pour over.
Really good in the stove top espresso maker. A bit thin in the drip. Very yummy with heavy cream. Not too bitter!
A nice brew, but nothing special.
really smooth no bitterness great way to start the day
Great Coffee, It has tasty notes that you can taste through milk in a latte. Very good beans that are perfect for espressos.
Great, easy cup of coffee with a broad appeal. A little heavier than what I would maybe pick out, and less nuanced in flavor, but if you told me this was the only coffee I could drink for the rest of my life, I'd probably be okay!
rather have a Dunkin dark roast.
When I first read the description of what the coffee flavors were I was concerned because I generally do not care for flavored coffees. However, the Coffee tasted better than I thought it would since the flavors are very subtle.
For future shipments please keep the flavors very subtle as I prefer the "real" taste of coffee vs flavored coffees.
Very smooth! Really enjoyed this blend.
Balanced, easy to drink coffee.
I could have an affair with this coffee... don't tell my husband. While it IS easy drinking, it is also multi-layered with just enough complexity to keep it interesting. I could drink this coffee all day...and I have. Just. So. Good.
A really nice all-around coffee. Pulls easily for espresso but also works well in a pour-over. I can definitely taste the chocolate, although it's somewhat lighter in flavor than other blends I've had.
Mellow breakfast blend with notes of mocha on the front end. Needs a little more kick but good roast overall.
After tweaking the amount of coffee to be ground, I found the Day Tripper Blend to be a very enjoyable with a rich flavor.
Nice and well balanced. Easy sipping in the morning.
Good but didn't like the caramel flavor, tasted fake to me. Good strong taste, very sweet. Loved the chocolate flavor.
A smooth but light cup of coffee
Made a double shot espresso with steamed vanilla almond milk. Smooth and clean taste, light bodied with subtle tastes of caramel
Nice, especially in an AeroPress... I usually avoid coffee that seem to have “added flavors”—this one isn’t too much like that, just a little... I enjoyed a change to something different.
I liked this blend a lot. A bit on the lighter side but not too much. If it were any more bright / acidic, it would probably be too much for me, but this was just right.
Very solid coffee. I like it more brewed strong in a Moka pot compared to brewing in my French press.
Very smooth with nice hints of sweetness. A bit lighter than anticipated but good overall.
Very good, smooth and great taste. Might be a bit light for me.
I enjoy the subtle sweetness that never transitioned to bitterness.
Just had my first cup of this wonderful coffee! Samantha did a great job picking this blend for me! It has such a smooth flavor without the bitter aftertaste I seem to keep running across with other blends I have tried lately. I am very impressed with Good Folks! :)
I like this coffee very much. I thought it was well rounded
does not sit well on my palate. I can't even really describe it, other than trash water.
Very rich and flavorful dosent need more then a little half and half to go with it.
My wife and I really enjoy this blend. Thank you!
We prepared it in both Chemex and French press and enjoyed it a lot more in the Chemex. Easy drinker.
My husband and I really enjoyed this coffee. He made it with the French press, and even used it for a cold brew. So good!
Although I enjoy a delicious lighter roast this blend was just a little lighter than I expected. Still a good flavor and much enjoyed
I like this coffee, especially for the fall. The main taste I get from this is "campfire". I think in the future I'd like to receive more lighter roasts from this company.
This was pretty good as a pourover! I think it was a little too earthy for me. I would love a more fruity blend next time! :)
It was quite good! Probably around top 15 coffees I have had. A bit brighter than I was expecting from something branded as being for "any time of day" and certainly had some of that breakfast blend feeling. I think I may want to go a bit darker next time!
Smooth, chocolatey, and a little smokey. We would drink this again!
Made in a chemex -- roasty flavors, nothing overly prominent, drinkable if not unique.
Very nice and smooth coffee
This was good, but I must admit, I think I could have done a better job roasting this coffee. I don't think I had my new burr grinder figured out yet...
Very tasty. I brewed using chemex, 700g of water and 52g of beans, for two cups of coffee. The beans are very fresh and I taste some nice smooth notes of Carmel and chocolate. Not bitter at all.
Very smooth. Enjoyed the chocolate & caramel flavors.
Stronger. New burr grinder helping flavor.
Wasn't overly impressed. Just ok for me.
The coffee blend itself is objectively good. It just isn't the flavor profile I want. It's too bright. I want a little more dirt flavor
We enjoyed this blend overall, although at first blush with an aeropress brewing method, it seemed plain and light. Once we used our Kalita everything improved and we were more able to enjoy the fuller complexity of the roast--and it was much more balanced. It was a bit darker than we expected and I think once we've tried more single origin coffees, this would be one to revisit.
Great flavor but could be a little darker/bolder
Very drinkable, any time of day due to the milder flavor.
Enjoyed; would prefer a bit more "oomph" but would drink again.
Definitely a nice flavor. Tasted bold, smooth balanced. Made a really good Ice Coffee pour over. Vanilla flavor seems more like bold espresso, caramel/sweetness is nice. Good flavored coffee, not bitter or acidic easy to make in a pour over for me.
Clean, with good acidity. My wife and I enjoy our coffee strong with lots of cream and sugar, so I tend to go for roasts like this or a little darker.
Would prefer something richer in flavor/more dark roasted
I enjoyed this coffee, the taste is satisfying and rich. But, i felt like it wasn't bitter enough for my tastes.
very good. I like it.
Carmel notes, smooth
Good easy drinking coffee. Doesn't have a lot of complexity and body so it can feel a little boring. The notes of chocolate and Carmel are nice and I enjoyed drinking it but it didn't seem special. It feel a little flat for us.
Pleasant taste but I like a bit stronger, oilier taste. Others in the family like it.
very nice, smooth, flavorful
This is a great coffee to start your day with. Definitely has a blended, balanced flavor that feels familiar and is easy to appreciate.
This blend was solid and consistent. I didn't notice the chocolate and caramel notes strongly, but there were definitely hints of those present. Overall, it has the characteristics of one smooth, well-rounded cup of coffee. Nothing fancy, nothing unique, just straightforward and smooth. A basic go-to blend that will never disappoint.
A bit lighter than I prefer, but a fantastic aroma of vanilla and easy to drink black. The chocolate notes are a little heavier than I prefer. But overall, a great coffee.
Balanced and smooth
Another good coffee. Possibly top 3 or 4 of the brands I've tried so far.
Would definitely drink this again
I like light roasts, but this one was just too acidic for me.
The flavor was a little too subtle although the coffee was smooth and had a decent finish.
Very smooth. definite caramel notes, handled milk very well.
Simple & easy to drink. Some cups taste blander than others, but it's a good coffee to brew & power through some work.
A very smooth and delicate coffee. I brewed this using a Chemex so some of the "richness" may have been caught in the paper filter causing it to have a more gentle flavore. Also, I would say this coffee trends more on the side of light/medium roast (as you can see even in the color of the bean) as a little bit of brightness still come through in a tasting. Which I don't prefer. I look for more of the smoky depth of a slightly darker roast. But all in all, a very good coffee. I would mostly recommend this coffee for people who are trying to move towards drinking their coffee black.
I like the aroma of the coffee, but not the acidic or sour aftertaste. I think I like a darker roast. Thanks!
The worst coffee I've received to date. Weak aroma after grinding. Bland, watery flavor. Looking forward to finishing this one and moving on.
Very good and smooth. Balanced, and creamy. Brewed in a Chemex and in a Hario V60 with similar results.
The flavor was a little too subtle. The coffee had a good finish.
I liked this one although it was a little too strong/rich for my taste.
Very good. Great mix of flavors.
a very bright coffee, Caramel noticed more than the light choc. one of the best i've had honestly. Home run on first pick!
I don't like the roasting smell and there is a bitter end to it
This one is my favorite so far. Excellent flavor!
As the description states, this coffee is straightforward, Not much in the way of vegetative flavors and it's not at all oily, so my machine really likes that.
We are enjoying this coffee very much. Nice rich and smooth flavor. The chocolate and caramel notes are nice undertones but not overpowering. Easy to drink with no aftertaste. This is a great start - very good first coffee.
Great chocolate notes! Very smooth and enjoyable coffee
This one is good and I have no problem with it. However after the Seabright I was a little disappointed. I didnt think it had quite as much flavor.
Solid coffee if a bit straight forward. Well done but not quite as interesting or complex as I typically prefer.
I really liked this one...I don't know how to really describe coffee, but I know I liked it and felt like I could really catch some distinct flavor in this one and it seemed to be a nice roast level for me.
This coffee was okay. I did enjoy the flavor of it but it could've been a darker roast.
I'm a fan!!! It's exactly what I'm looking for in new coffee. A very smokey roasty taste.
Roast was not dark enough
Did not like this one as much as the last. Found it to be really acidic and bland. Hoping to get something a bit more interesting tasting on the next go. Maybe try a single origin out?
Solid coffee easy drinker. Mild unacidic flavor. The description of rich, chocolate tones is pretty accurate. Would order again.
Excellent coffee. Exceptionally tasty as pour over.
Seth & Marji
Not as dark as we like
Tasty and easy to drink
Really enjoyed the combination of flavors, it was like eating a piece of dessert after dinner but saying very light on your taste buds. The flavors are very noticeable from the first sip, so it can't easily be missed. Overall, I enjoyed the coffee more as a milk based drink than black because it can be a little overpowering! I would buy it again.
Mainly extracted via Espresso Machine.
Great coffee. Just light enough. Perfect for the morning.
Enjoyed it, but prefer something darker, stronger.
Maureen Pacheco and
So, this coffee surprised me. I am usually drawn to citrus and floral notes but this blend is delicious. It is easy to brew in our french press. The beans were lighter than I expected for the flavor. We were pleasantly surprised. The acidity level is balanced and the nose delightfully filled our kitchen. What an awesome first blend to start on. Thank you!
Just ok. Not bad but I didn't pick up the caramel chocolate. Would like to try a dark roast next.
Todd + Heather
This one is smoother. My favorite so far
Rich, dark, yet not overwhelming or bitter.
Seems too light and not bold enough flavor. I thought I liked milder, I usually don't really like French roasts, so maybe I'm somewhere in the middle? I do like strong espresso.
I really like chocolate notes in my coffee. And I also like that it didn't have any fruit in it.
This was amazingly smooth with very little bitterness. Loved the creaminess of it and as well as the finish. The hints of chocolate and caramel made me smile as I sipped my first cup of this on a chilly New England Sunday morning.
Fantastic!! Love every sip of every cup.
Very delicious! Loved it!
My idea of a perfect brew.
Very good I like the roast I would prefer something with a bit more Nuttier tones
This one seemed a bit bitter or sour, if I can remember, I am not really sure. I just remember I like the Flor Raos Azul better
Very good. Both my wife and I enjoyed the blend. Smooth and not overpowering.
Good flavor, not enough boldness.
Nicebalance but overly caffinated
good full flavor without being too heavy, even in my stovetop unit.
Much too light a roast for me. Beans had not gloss to them at all and thus the brewed drink had little taste to me.
Smooth and satisfying. Tastes great.
Not enough bold flavor
I love this coffee! very smooth going down, no bitterness. yum!
This was the first one I tried and didn't realize I needed to review and rate so unfortunately I don't remember that much about it.
Looking for a darker roast
A good smooth blend, I just couldn't to brew as strong as I would prefer.
Liked the chocolate notes.
Not a huge fan of the natural flavor of this coffee
I did like that it did seem to be a bit milder
I think this was a bit too strong as espresso for my taste but as an americano it was much more tolerable. It smells so good when grinding and brewing. Loved it with my french press.
i would give it a zero if i could. so dry! tasted like dirt. ugh!
Really enjoyed this blended roast. Smooth, rich flavors on the backend with low acidity. However, it was thin with light flavors on the front end. Still, a very good roast. Definitely recommend. :)
Love love love this one. Amazing flavor makes every sip a treat! More like this please!!
Not as good as the Honduras blend, but honestly I can't tell you why
Not quite dark enough for us, but still a great cuppa.
Alan and Maryellen
N/A i dont drink flavored coffees
i liked this but was a little too light
Really enjoyed the taste of this coffee. Not floral tasting, but not at all too bitter. This has been my favorite so far of the three.
Very nice enjoyed flavourful taste
A little too light and complex
Didn't meant to review this one just yet. lol
I really enjoyed this coffee. It was well-balanced and forgiving, and not too acidic or heavy.
This coffee, while a bit sweeter than I normally prefer, is great for drinking after dinner.
Tracy & Brandon
Love this one!
I'm not typically a blend drinker but enjoyed this one. It was really nice as an espresso and worked really well with my auto drip. When i received it, it was a tad stale tasting but not horrible. Still held up nicely to the end of the bag.
Decent blend. Unique. Good taste. Not a favorite but still pretty good.
I liked this blend just fine, but I didn't find it a particularly memorable one. I could taste the chocolate notes-- which were even more apparent when paired with a piece of chocolate-- but I didn't pick up on the caramel notes.
Very good taste - enjoying it immensely
It was good, but a little to acidic for me at the finish. Just learning my acids, but maybe a bit too much malic acid. Flavor was good though.
Liked by the entire family.
Dry, rich, brown beans
French press - spirited bloom and earthy aroma
Medium acidity and light mouthfeel
Starts nutty/fruity and ends mellow
A smooth, light, cup that just crosses the line into medium roast
This coffee is full of flavor. It has a strong background and you breathe out a sweet aroma after drinking it.
Mike and Denise
I liked this coffee overall. I wasn't too blown away by anything about it, but it was definitely a solid cup. I picked up on some dark chocolate/toffee/almond-y kind of taste which I did enjoy too. Reviewers commented on sweetness and a caramel taste but I did not pick up on any of that. I typically enjoy Papua New Guinea single origins and this was somewhat reminiscent of that, which makes sense
I loooove the smell of this coffee first thing in the morning!
Smooth. Enjoyed the caramel and brown sugar notes.
Also another great coffee, smooth and well balanced.
We like the smooth flavor
It was too lightly roasted for me.
Sandra and Stan
Great coffee, too 'green' for our palettes but we prefer deeper, roast"ier" coffee bean profiles.
Really enjoyed this coffee. Very drinkable. Could definitely recognize the caramel flavors. Next time, it would be great to try a single origin coffee that is a bit more robust.
Very flavorful blend without being heavy. Rich, smooth blend of flavors. We went through it really fast.
Hey I drink coffee at home mostly as espresso drinks. On the surface this is a blend that might work well given the blend. However, I tried different of extractions (ristretto and lungo) but could never find a great flavor extraction with this blend. Now, as a pour over I can find all the caramel, and chocolate notes. So, I recommend using a Chemex or your favorite pour-over device. (as espresso 2 stars, but as pour-over 4 stars)
Too weak in flavor, taste, and richness.
Enjoyed last shipment better than first. I think I'm grinding beans to much smaller than needed for drip mix
I liked the smoothness of this blend, and it had a wonderful aroma. I found the flavor to be fairly weak, though, especially compared to what I was expecting based on the description.
Very smooth flavor with a good aroma, low acidity and light, easy to drink. I felt it wasn't too sweet or bitter, good starting off coffee. If I had to give a negative to build off of I would say it was a little to mellow for me, I like a bolder flavor coffee, or at least that is what I am used to, I still want to try everything before I start to make decisions on what I like, I'm trying to start this adventure with a clean slate.
I really enjoyed the smoothness of this. I typically use a flavored creamer but when i decided to try this with just sugar I was pleasantly surprised. To me it almost seemed a little smokey. I look forward to the next shipment!
I think this was ok for me. It didn't taste bad by any means, however I'm not really a fan of the chocolate in my coffee.
I didn't get much of the chocolate, was a little flat with a strong unpleasant sour note. Not sure if I got a bad batch.
Very smooth with very little bitterness or aftertaste. Relatively easy to dial in the right brew.
This is the first blend I've liked in a long time! Thanks!
Thick and creamy to your pallet, smooth as silk i pull 21g with no sugar added it is superb you just want more and more. Just as the notes describe the taste, quite delicious.
Good balanced cup of coffee.
A bit more bitter/acidic than I'd like, but still pretty good.
Good but not unique.
Very balanced and delicious
It was sweet and delicious and smelled amazing as it was brewing. I think I'm going to try to mix it with soy instead of almond milk next time. I tasted more chocolate than caramel in this blend, which is good.
Really amazing. Seriously one of the better cups of coffee I've ever had.
Has a good overall flavor.
Tasted a little flat and not as rich as I was expecting. I could taste the chocolate and caramel notes well enough, though.
Delicious. I could drink it black, or with very little cream. The flavors are very subtle, but the lack of bitterness makes up for it.
More balanced than I was expecting. Very smooth and easy to drink. Nothing too exotic, and a bit more on the simple side, but very good.
Very smooth and flavourful - great morning coffee!
3.5 stars. This is a very pleasant cup made me think of diner coffee at its best. I did find it lacking in refinement (maybe due to being a blend) and complexity. Absolutely nothing wrong with it, but didn't really impress me much either.
Usually not a fan of blends but i enjoyed this. Description of flavors and aromas was spot on. Would drink again.
I liked the flavor overall but it was a little too bright for me. My favorites are usually dark, smooth, rich, and a little less fruity. This was good in my French press, but not as good in my drip coffee maker.
I definitely taste the chocolate! This is a nice, balanced coffee. Helped me to wait for it to cool down a bit in order to taste some of those other flavors mentioned in the description.
Didn't care for this one. Definitely rich, which I don't mind, but the lingering, bitter caramel aftertaste I found unpleasant.
Tasty! Good depth of flavor; wish it had been slightly fresher.
Really great. Incredible sweetness. Vanilla finish was impressive.
It was a little more straightfoward, sweeter blend. The most forward flavor I tasted was a little bit of caramel and vanilla. I like it for desserts and a 'sunday afternoon' kinda day. I definitely enjoy it, but it wouldn't be my go to blend for every morning
Lizzy and Denis
Seems very light for a medium roast. Lacked depth and boldness. Both coffees were very similar. I did not like this blend at all.
Liked the chocolate caramel flavors & deep richness. I tend to stay away from extra citrusy notes
It was pretty good. Since I usually make a latte with aero press, the taste isn't evident. I was happy that it wasn't smoky! For some reason, it left a dry and bitter after taste AFTER the drink was finished.
overall a very good coffee. The prevalent taste/aroma is caramel, with notes of vanilla. I don't get much chocolate. I don't adore caramel, so I would be interested in other blends in which caramel doesn't take center stage.
Very smooth and delicious coffee that is great for any time of day.
Very smooth flavor. I usually always add sugar, but the Marcala didn't need any. Medium body. Easy to drink. Nice taste.
Used 1.5 Tablespoons per cup in order to do a full-flavor test. It was outstanding! The description is very accurate - chocolate/caramel with a hint of vanilla (to me).
I am use to drinking Dunkin Donut Coffee. Also the beans were not fully grinding.
My first couple of cups from this were experiments with my new AeroPress - the first being far too weak and the second being far too strong. Once I got it right, though, I found this coffee to pair well with ice creams and other desserts, as it meets the advertised richness well. I used the remaining few ounces in my OXO Cold Brewer and made 8oz of cold brew concentrate, which has worked well as a basis for pseudo-lattes.
Aftertaste had an undesireable sour undertone. Not bold enough for my taste.
Pretty good coffee. Smoothe. Couldn't taste the chocolate, caramel or vanilla as much as I thought.
A little weak for my taste.
Courtney & William
Enjoyed this coffee very much.
A good coffee; easily drunk; able to drink with food or alone.
really smooth chocolate and dark caramel taste
Holy cow this stuff is fantastic. The roast is not oily dark, allowing the simple flavors of the beans to shine through. At the same time, the roast is dark enough to provide richness and full body. I tend to like coffees that are richer and fuller-bodied still than this, but this coffee has the advantage of bringing much more flavor and nuance due to the roasting.
Very much enjoyed this balanced med roast blend. Because this was my first mistobox, so it's hard to say 4 or 5 stars. I need more comparisons and I may adjust.
This is a tasty coffee but I have been drinking dark roasts for a while and am probably used to a more robust cup. I do NOT care for Italian or French roasts, so not that dark. Chocolate and caramel are favorite flavors, but maybe a darker roast version, and nutty?? My three stars may change as I go through the bag. This is my initial response.
Superb, smooth taste and pairs very well with many foods.
Sweet and floral, notes of magnolia and brown sugar, muted chocolate finish - smooth and round overall, not much acidity. Easy to enjoy, but not intended for someone who prefers a rich roast. I didn't taste the caramel but would like to try something like this but darker.
A nice easy to drink coffee. Lacked the interesting notes i tend to search for, but happy to serve it to company
Really enjoyed the "caramel notes" - and a hint of nuttiness from the freshly ground husks found in the grind (those that didn't succumb to the static, clinging to my grinder's drop-down box, that is). A very nice, lighter roast. Would have appreciated more than six ounces though.
Too light roast for our taste but good aroma.
A very nice, mild blend with no bitterness.
These weren't flavors that i preferred in my cup...Ive not been a huge fan of blends in the past and unfortunately this one sat in the same place for me! Not a terrible cup but I wouldn't buy it.
I don't know if it's my process or the coffee but I did not really enjoy this. I still have about a weeks worth of coffee beans and will let you know if it changes
I had this at 4/5 stars, but after finishing the bag, I came back to give it a 5. I'm not a coffee expert, but it was nice to easily identify the tasting notes.
I made this twice. First time was too weak, second time was stronger but still dumped both pots. Neither my husband or myself thought it tasted any different than a poor brew you would get at a cheap restaurant.
Nicely balanced and flavored. I was afraid it would be a bold dark roast from the beans but it was surprisingly mellow when brewed. Kind of a classic flavor.
Beautiful roast! Right when I opened the bag I started thinking of homemade caramels or toffee of some sort. Very sweet cup and giant flavor for first thing in the morning. As my first order and first cup. I'm already excited to see what else this subscription will throw my way.
It was good, rich wasn't quite as tasty as the Anodyne Coffee "Hondoras Marcala", I really liked the citrus-y, orange scent and taste. Would really like to try another more fruit forward coffee, perhaps some Ethiopian beans from a roaster you'd recommend!
Very tasty and smooth
I get much more of a brightness than a rich, caramel, chocolatey taste in this coffee. It's OK...but tastes a bit bitter. I'm a bit disappointed in the first coffee to arrive from Mistobox. I brewed this in my Chemex. Hopefully now that I've updated my preferences I'll get something that suits my tastes a bit more.
This was a little too sweet for me.
Coffee is smooth, but does not have a distinct flavor.
This was a lighter bean than I usually get from my local roaster, but part of what I love about Mistobox is the variety and getting me out of my normal coffee routine. I get a very slight sour flavor that gives it some brightness that I enjoyed, and it's not bitter at all. My usual cup is a bit bolder than this, but I enjoyed the change.
This blend is lighter than I typically prefer, but it is outstanding. It is exceptionally unoffensive, and while it might not blow you away, it's both light and flavorful, making it appealing to a wide audience.
The best coffee you have sent me. More please!!!
Very smooth and mellow, but very tasty!
Very tasty! perfect with dessert or for breakfast. Rich but still like a light roast.
This is more like 4.25 stars. Very nice coffee, well described above.
This is lovely and rich.
Great flavor. Smooth with no bitterness.
Not a bad bean at all, just a bit more mild than I was hoping for. It had smooth/mellow caramel and light chocolate notes, with a slightly apricot aroma on the ground beans. A touch of the apricot flavor in the beginning of the taste before it fades into chocolate and caramel. If I could give it a 3.5 I would.
Nice aroma when brewing. A little less robust than coffees I usually buy. Like the taste. and would likely purchase this coffee now and then. Like the rich body.
Sorry I had responded earlier. I was away from home for 2 weeks!
Lacking flavor, seemed weak
This is a pretty good cup of coffee. Not like The Verve 1950 Blend which was excellent.
