This is the Colombia Antioquia brought to you by Entimos Coffee Roasters. Grown in the Antioquia region of Colombia between 1,200 and 1,800 meters, this coffee is mostly comprised of the Caturra variety of Arabica coffee. Our idea of a great daily drinking coffee, this coffee has balanced notes of chocolate and subtle cherry notes, with mellow and restrained citrus acidity.
This coffee really is what it claims to be: an everyday coffee. With smoothness, chocolatey and citrus notes, it's a great way to start the day. I ended up brewing most of this coffee on my Kalita Wave 185; I found that the Wave's semi-immersion technique really brought out the well-rounded flavors in this coffee. Overall, I enjoyed this coffee.
Probably the most disappointing coffee from Misto thus far. Pretty lifeless roast.
A solid flavor with a mild taste.
smells good, tastes like carboard...Horrible choice...First time I had to add sugar to my coffee in years. How do you rate such horrible coffee?? I'd rather have 7-11 coffee than this.
A pleasantly earthy coffee that was really consistent with a few different brewing processes. Mellow, easy drinking but not one dimensional. I enjoyed it! Probably closer to 3.5 stars.
I've liked other roasts from Entimos and am usually a big fan of Colombian coffee. Something went wrong here. It tastes burnt (maybe over-roasted?) and that's no matter how we brew this, V60, Aero Press or Espresso shot).
Yikes! Not the best cup from Entimos Coffee Roasters. Tastes rather roasty without much complexity. Does not quite meet the standards of Misto.
I enjoyed this bean more than the Honduras COMUCAP Fair Trade Organic. Very fruity.
Too dark and overpowering for my taste. Please do not send me this particular coffee again.
Not my favorite. I'm not sure if I just got a bad batch or the coffee itself was bad, but I couldn't manage to get any good flavors out of it.
This is one of the worst coffees I've had in a while, and the worst from mistobox in my 6 month sub outside of the terrible 4 roast level intro sampler. This coffee is poorly reviewed consistently on its page, but my "curator" chose to send it to me to close out my sub. Not exactly ending on a high note. Overall, I've been pretty disappointed with mistobox. I've been sent some average and mostly below average coffees that don't reflect the preferences I sent to mistobox. If you're going to use the word "curator," it should at least feel like someone is paying attention, whether it's computer algorithms or not. A note, this coffee retails for $13.50 on the Entimos site and for $19 on mistobox, while my sub averages $20/month. This has happened almost every month of my sub. Feels like a rip off.
Good, but nothing special.
Really liked the earthy flavor. Surprisingly didn't really like this on the chemex but enjoyed it in a french press and kalita
Average offering. Not very balanced or complex. Bitter dark chocolate flavor dominates.
True to the description, this balanced cup makes for a great daily drink.
I'm giving this a 2 because I have had good coffees from Entimos. However, this is one of my least favorite coffees I've had in a long time. I won't be finishing the bag.
This is a nice daily grind. Mellow. Sort of a bridge between medium roasts and teas: it responded really well to tinkering with the Chemex. Caramel and cherry on the flavors.
I found this one to just be allright. Nothing exciting and flavor profile was a bit bland. Acidic aftertaste
Another great coffee I thoroughly enjoyed!!!
Give this one 3.5 stars. This coffee was most enjoyable after it cooled for a few minutes, The heat seemed to mask the lighter tart flavors but over the entire time of drinking the cup, the coffee evolves from sweet and chocolatey to tang and tart (specifically cherry).
Wonderfully smooth with subtle notes of cherry. It's a little too smoky for my tastes, however. Brewed with an espro press.
This a stronger coffee than I prefer. It has a good taste and is not bitter, but I think it would more suited for a latte. Due to personal preferences, I had to reduce the normal bean grind by about 20%, which made it just right for me. If you normally add a flavored creamer to your coffee, you will be pleased.
A solid everyday coffee, but not enough sweet notes for me. Semi-heavy when brewed in a Chemex.
It was super dark for my taste...I like light and fruity stuff and I was not a fan!
I personally have not liked this one that much. Without glancing at the other reviews, I came to the sense that this has a pretty flat taste. Ive tried really hard to brew it with various methods and maybe its just too dark a roast to work well with what im doing (Aero and v60 mainly with an ditch effort at french) Maybe I got a bad batch or something but im looking forward to trying something else...
Unfortunately this coffee seemed either under developed or to have a defect to me, leaving the final cup with a papery flat taste. Plenty of citrus going on, maybe to much. I would have liked to see a more balanced coffee and the Antioquia seemed like it could have had more going on without the unsavory notes.

This roast is really pretty terrible, and I am very open to my tastes when it comes to coffee... I thought it was strange at how fast my brew finished, and then after my first sip, I really thought I did something terribly wrong! But alas... this is the coffee. It's bitter, hard to swallow. I live in Spain and the local coffees here tastes strong and burnt, made with torrefacto. This is why I order from Mistobox. Looking forward to my next shipment..
I like the little bit of citrus, but there's a bitter aftertaste I can't seem to not produce. Almost like a stale-ness. It was freshly roasted, so it's not age. Just a little burnt tasting in the aftertaste, I guess. Overall very solidly something I'd call coffee with a lot of coffee flavor and little citrus in the finish with a bitter coffee-left-on-the-burner aftertaste. Which is fine, if that's what you like. Perhaps roasted a little too dark for my palette. My favorite so far has been the Topeca Ethiopian Ardi I was accidentally shipped.
Not a fan. The citrus is overwhelming and makes the coffee taste bitter. =/
I was not too big a fan of this one. I think it's all Arabica coffees in general...there's just something about that variety that never hits just right.
Didn't love it -- just didn't taste particularly interesting in any way.
I enjoyed the light roast and bright acidity of this offering. I would certainly consider going back for more.
this was okay, again, still finding over extraction a problem. But also wondering if south american varieties aren't our thing.
very tricky to brew; way darker than I like, also brewed much faster than usual through a v60. bloom was huge.
Over roasted. No acidity. Just char. Easily my least favorite coffee I've had as a member of Mistobox.
Solid but unremarkable in line with its description. The chocolate definitely comes through with a hint of spice and a lingering earthy finish. Haven't picked up any particular berry or citrus elements after brewing via Chemex and Kalita with a variety of grind sizes and ratios.
Not bright, fruity, or floral, but a solid morning brew with good flavor.
