The Streetlevel Espresso was carefully roasted for you by Verve Coffee Roasters. This latest version of Streetlevel Espresso made up of two incredible new coffees from Guatemala, Finca Candelaria in Alotenango and Los Santos in Chimaltenango. These are both fully washed coffees and they were grown between 1,500 - 2,000 meters. Pulled as espresso, it is quintessentially sweet with balanced notes of dark chocolate and perfectly ripe stone fruits and citrus.
This coffee was just ok. I'm sure you are familiar with the aroma you experience when you first enter a gourmet coffee shop. That's exactly how I want my coffee to taste. Coffee should taste like coffee and not be too sweet and fruity. I was never a fan of flavored coffees. Why is it that you can travel abroad and walk into a coffee shop, hotel lobby, restaurant or even an airport and enjoy a superb cup of coffee that doesn't taste like chocolate, orange or any other fruit? Why can't we do that here?
This is really excellent espresso – the best bag I've had so far from Mistobox.
Best coffee we have received yet. Absolutely delicious.
I liked this selection a little better than the Taylor Maid. It was fresh and the beans smelled wonderful in the bag, and during brewing. The beans were bigger than the previous roast and more consistent in size. Worked well as an espresso, and pulling shots is not my strong suit. Great on Chemex as well, but not so good for me on V60, which was a little surprising. The note profile was something I would gravitate towards when selecting a new coffee. Definitely could taste the citrus, maybe a little more on the sweeter side of citrus. I absolutely would try another VERVE roast in the future.
I enjoyed this coffee the most so far! It has some fruitiness to it that I like but it's not overpowering.
I liked the coffee, didn't necessarily love it. I enjoyed the earthy tones, but it was a little too citrusy for me. Also, the roast was a bit too light. Living in the Northwest, my palate is accustomed to a darker roast. Though the coffee was considered a medium roast, in comparison to what I'm used to it would be a lighter roast. I guess I would be considered in the Northwest a medium to dark roast, chocolate and caramel note person. I enjoy a full-bodied coffee, but one that's not bitter. But I'm always open to something new.
Very complex sweet tones. Not too bitter, not too sweet.
Hard to get result which I like to savor. My best result so far was from:
Gaggia MDF set on 4
Double basket leveled
Gaggia Classic, 36s
Hard to describe the flavor - more earthy than fruity. Not bright.
I would put the flavor below such espresso blends as
- Sight Glass
- Box Car
- Four Barrel
- Blue Bottle
The bigger disappointment was only Chromatic Gamut.
Well balanced with a touch of fruit and acid at the end.
Loved this coffee great flavor profile
Pretty good. Not extraordinary but it was a solid cup of coffee.
Great fruity taste
Not my favorite, I felt this had a bit too much bright citrus flavor for my tastes.
So good. Well balanced and flavorful.
Wow, just my type of roast. Medium and beautiful fruit notes. Amazing crema with every shot pulled.
Smooth and drinkable. Not a big fan of espresso blends, but this was a good diversion from my usual coffee preferences.
A bit better than the last time I had it, but still definitely not my thing. OK with milk, not so good as an espresso.
Really enjoying this one. Light with a nice body
Great aroma and nice mild taste
Fantastic. Once I dialed in the grind, each shot was a reliable 2 ounces of pure, sweet, sweet creama. This was certainly one of the better coffees I have received from Mistobox, and wouldnt hesitate to purchase this one again.
This is one of the best coffees I have had. It is really strong as a stand-alone espresso, or poured on top of water for an americano, but is versatile enough to work in a milk-drink. A
Easy to drink, very light flavor. Wish there was a bit more complexity
Might be the best coffee ever had.
Lots of citrus at the front with a nice chocolaty finish. Delicious.
the notes of each each flavor come through well. Probably best as a short or a tall with little to no syrup.

This coffee is a little different, I've never brewed an espresso roast in a drip coffee machine, but it actually gave it a unique flavor, and I didn't mind it at all
If you like a bright flavors that a light roast brings out then I highly suggest this blend for a a straight espresso drink. However, if you always make lattes or caps then I would avoid it, not the best beans for a milky beverage in my opinion
Enjoyed it. It wasn't the dark, smoky roast that I usually enjoy but it was a different taste and I did pick up on the flavor notes. I generally drink bolder, darker roasts but this did open up my palate! Thank you.
