This is the Organic Colombia Fondo Paez brought to you by Kickapoo Coffee Roasters. This fully washed coffee was grown by the various small holder producers in the Cauca region of Colombia between 1,300 - 1,900 meters above sea level. The cup is aromatic and balanced with rich caramel notes that linger throughout, and dark fruit notes that add a wonderful complexity.
Good solid coffee. Caramel / spiced nuts is strong. Beans have a strong nutty /cinnamon aroma. Slight citrus / fruit taste. I'd prefer a coffee that's a little darker / heavier /smoother in the cup. Overall a solid coffee. Thanks Samantha!
Didn't like this one quite as much as the first coffee. A little sour and darker tasting than we'd prefer.
I liked it. I brewed it with a Kalita Wave which really helped bring out the fruity notes from the coffee. It was very smooth until the tart cherry really hit you at then end. It lingered, but it wasn't too overwhelming. I am looking forward to trying it with a Hario as well and see the difference. Otherwise, I highly recommend this coffee and roaster. I definitely want to try more from them in the near future.
Coffee has nice flavor but has a lighter flavor profile than I'd like. If I had to choose between the two, I liked the Mexico Sicobi better.
This is my favorite coffee yet! I love how smooth it is, and I enjoy the rich dark roast with the caramel flavor notes. I would like more coffees like this one.
I really liked the dark fruit flavors in this coffee. It made for a very smooth cup and was very easy to drink. The caramel worked in a nice harmony with the fruit notes, but I wish it had been slightly more detectable. Coffees of this richness or perhaps a bit richer with more chocolaty notes would be wonderful contenders for my upcoming shipment! Thanks Seth! My mornings have gotten way better with MistoBox!
Loved this style of coffee. Love the fruity complex flavor and is a joy right out of the Chemex.
We enjoyed this coffee, however the lasting caramel flavor was a little stronger than we would have liked. The body was nice and again, we generally did enjoy this coffee.
This was pretty good coffee! A little light for my preference, but the fruit notes shined through! Great coffee for a afternoon caffeine boost!
A bit mild for my taste. Didn't really pick up on the caramel, or "dark fruit notes" this definitely seems like a citrus forward coffee, as the lemon/lime acidity is prominent.
I'm more partial to bold full bodied, earthy, nutty profiles.
Fruity coffee. It was a little fuller than I expected, especially for such a light coffee. The flavors were very prominent and left a complex mouthfeel.
I really like the darker and caramel notes of this coffee, but even after experimenting with my extraction temperature and times, it was a little more acidic than I prefer. I think I lean toward darker roasts.
this is a bit too light and fruity for my preferences. I made it using press, pour over, and drip but flavor was consistently fruity. it was nice to try something different but I preferred the previous coffee more.
A little too light and mild for my tastes. But it is a very good coffee (if you like light and mild). No bitterness or sour.
I find it a bit more bitter and not as robust as I like. A bit thin.
description is spot on. very good coffee.
I really liked this single origin bean. I like how mellow it was and not too acidic.
Perhaps on the lighter side of my preference, but overall a very good coffee. Not the least bit disappointed! :)
The coffee was not bad, but it was a little too fruity for my tastes. I prefer more of a "coffee" flavor, if that makes sense
Too light, and too bitter for my taste. I was excited for the dark fruit and caramel notes, but was just too light for my liking.
Absolutely loved the subtle fruit flavors in this one. A mild citrus tone with a smooth and sweet finish. It was on the lighter side of the blend and lost a little flavor with the rich breakfast I had. Would have been perfect with a croissant or oatmeal. Overall a wonderful blend for a medium roast kind of coffee lover.
I like how balanced this coffee is!
This coffee was very good. Super complex and stimulating. I would have liked more caramel to balance, but intensely fruity as advertised. Dark plum indeed

Beautiful color. Smooth and flavorful. Definitely can taste the fruit notes.
Not an everyday coffee. Which isn't a bad thing. I do taste the caramel and fruit notes. It has a clean finish unless you don't brew it properly
Best I've had yet... we're getting closer to that perfect cup
Excellent coffee. I love the caramel and dark fruit components. I also like the slightly toasted, nutty or popcorn flavor it has. The aroma is amazing!
I enjoyed the Kickapoo Organic Colombia Fondo Paez very much. The caramel richness is definitely apparent. Aroma is great. Good coffee.
A little too light and bit fruitier than I prefer. I like earthier notes and a more medium to medium/dark roast.
Enjoyed this one, nothing special with it but it was good.
This is a smooth coffee that I enjoyed, especially the hint of Carmel, but ranked with the first one I still prefer the first.
Even better than the last coffee. Not acidic, but with a slightly stronger coffee taste.
It just keeps getting better and better with every MistoBox order.
dark fruit? Maybe so, but I seem to recall saying we do not like fruity coffee. This coffee probably falls on the opposite side of our taste pallet. Perhaps 'complex' is too generic a term - many people/things want to be thought of as complex.. Can you tell me what the opposite of complex would be - what taste and what coffees. Honestly, I would like to learn from some examples here so I can better communicate our likes.
Thanks again, please do not send anything like Kickapoo again.
Light coffee with a distinct tang that lingers. I enjoyed the lightness but would prefer less tang.
Very rich and delicious!
The aroma is delightful, and the coffee is smooth. I found it, especially with pour over, to be a little (to borrow a word from wine tasting) dry. My favorite way to prepare it is with french press, which kept the oil in play. After altering temperature and strength, I feel that I never quite found the sweet spot for the brew.
This is a lighter roast than I'm used to drinking but still has nice, fruity notes. I found it to be an interesting flavor and works well without cream or sugar. It's different than I typically buy so I have been enjoying trying something new.
The flavor is amazing I just wish it was a bit stronger.
Really tasty coffee, I like the fruity taste as well as how it doesn't taste too acidic.

Too light and fruity.
This one's a great fit for brewing with a Hario v60 or other pour-over apparatus. The notes of fruit (I sense a little bit of mango along with the caramel mentioned in the description).
Rich, bold, complex
To acidic for my taste
I like a variety of coffee blends, but for some reason Colombian coffee is not my favorite. It is a decent coffee, but it has a very typical Colombian flavor.
nice plum/fruit notes; a little too fruit-forward for my tastes though
This has to be one of my favorite coffees so far. I'll admit that I was a bit unsure when I first saw that I was having a coffee from Colombia being sent my way as i've typically found Colombian coffees to be be overly bitter and highly acidic. But this one took me by surprise. The notes written in the coffees description of complexity, caramel and dark fruit are spot. This is the perfect coffee for both the morning and the late afternoon cup. The smell is simply amazing and gives off a fruity and smooth scent. Great choice Mistobox!
Very good, especially in the Chemex. Had a nice subtle rich fruit flavor and had a more nuanced flavor than either the Equator Mocha Java or The La Colombe varieties tasted so far.
Good, nearly great.
I love this. My favorite one so far.
Very clean, with the perfect amount of acidity.
This coffee leaves a bitter aftertaste on the sides of my tongue. I struggle getting to the bottom of the cup.
this is a very easy-to-drink coffee. However, I would like something stronger, maybe a little bitter, more mocha, and less acidic
Really smooth and balanced flavors. Great stuff. I would really love to see some Ethiopian coffees come in. Those are by far my favorite.
Too fruity for me
A little too mellow. Want richer, darker flavor. Tastes acidic and unfortunately somewhat like beef consomme (?)
very difficult to get the same cup of coffee two times in a row.
By far the best coffee I have received so far. An excellent balance of sweetness and body. Will definitely be ordering more
One of our favorites thus far!
Very good. Went through it in record time!
Nice balance. Both my boyfriend and I really enjoyed it.
Smooth and low-acidic. A slight hint of sweetness in the end. An excellent cup to enjoy in the evenings.
If you brew it right this coffee can be quite good, but it's sort of inconsistent. I use a chemex, and slight variations affect the taste of the coffee a lot.
This stuff is amazing. Very flavorful but not overwhelming.
One of my favorite cups of coffee ever so far! Super smooth, loved the sweet caramelly scent. These beans were awesome!
