The Boldly Go was carefully roasted for you by Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters. This semi-washed coffee was sourced from the growing region of Aceh in Sumatra and was produced by the various small holder producers at 1,400 meters. Boldly Go is exactly what you need for some liquid courage to "boldly go", the cup is rich with notes of dark chocolate and earthy undertones.
Good taste, but almost too strong to drink more than a cup. I like the wake up feel of bold coffees, but this one gave me about 15% more energy than I would want.
rich deep chocolate flavor. first time having a roast from sumatra but was great. can be a little too dark if not brewed correctly.
Good cup of coffee, nice and rich and a solid dark blend. However the notes of dark chocolate aren't as apparent as I was expecting, and the coffee is slightly more bitter than what I'm used to.
Like a toasted marshmallow without the burnt bits! A stunning Sumatra, and an equally stunning medium roast.
LOVE this one! I loved this one more than the first :)
not bad. earthy but bright, but also a little bitter / sour. probably would not purchase (again).
Very full bodied roast. I appreciate the boldness of it but feel I want something more fruity and less HEAVY chocolate.
I love it. Perfectly balanced and smooth all the way down.
I liked this one, too, but not quite as much as the first one. I think the other had more complex flavors. This is good, but more one-note, if that makes sense.
A bit sour; toasted taste, just OK
Too dark for me, but smells amazing fresh out of my grinder.
I thought this coffee was excellent. Not as strong as the description indicated (which was good), it had a complex flavor without being too strong or burnt tasting.
I was honestly worried about this brew at first given the tasting notes... I typically like more "bright" floral and citrus coffees, especially from Africa. This was pleasantly surprising though. The "bold" flavor was very accessible and I still found brighter notes.
I was worried this would have been too bold(which I am not always a fan of), but the flavor was great and the coffee smooth. My wife and I have almost finished the bag. We will probably be done by Tuesday.
Very earthy, I like this one!
Even though it didn't look like the beans were burnt, it definitely did taste like it to my friends and me.
I'm not a fan of earthy flavors. Would much prefer citrus-y flavors. My favorites have been Ethiopia beans.
Still a bit more acidic than I care for, but nothing I wouldn't buy and drink anyways just to have.
Very smooth with distinct flavors. Great cup of joe.
Very good! I don't think it's as bold as described, but still a good cup! Definitely can taste the "earthy" flavors without it being too overpowering. Felt it was smooth & easy to drink.
I just don't prefer sumatra
Was not a big fan of this one. Flavors fell flat.
Great coffee. Needed to be brewed a bit stronger than others but all around good cup
We thought this coffee didn't have an interesting flavor profile at all... also a little darker than we like
Sadly, I think this is the first coffee that I've gotten with my subscription that I've been disappointed by. It did help confirm that Sumatra is my least favorite coffee region in terms of the flavor profile.
This coffee is alright but nothing to write home about. You're hit right off the bat with strong, earthy undertones. These tasting notes fall more on the side of overpowering burnt/darker roast than pleasant and well balanced though. The aftertaste is the coffee's strong point, with lingering and sweeter dark chocolate, attempting to counter the rest of the coffee's profile.
Beautiful packaging though!
Rich roast with a smooth chocolatey flavor and mouthfeel. It has some nice complexity that helps you get going in the morning.
I used this for my cold brew coffee sock. Really fantastic! It really softened the earthy undertones which my palette can be sensitive too. I really enjoyed this black.
I liked it
Thought it was very smooth, with a great taste!
I was not very impressed this coffee very papery taste and all around just an OK blend.
This coffee is really good! I didn't enjoy it as much as my last coffee though. It was darker with a bit of a burnt or roasty flavor to it. Definitely a lot of dark chocolate too. The beans were darker than I typically enjoy. Full bodied dark chocolate is how I would describe it. Although I do think this is a great coffee, it is not one that I prefer. I also have never seen a coffee bloom like this one does during the wetting stage. I've had to let it bloom longer than I typically do.
a good, strong coffee. excellent for waking up in the morning or with cheesecake or Tiramisu for dessert
this was a very satisfying coffee. smoother than expected from the name and flavorful.
A good coffee. Not as satisfying as some. I'd probably give it 4.5 stars, to be fair. Tripped up by the "Boldly Go" name, as I expected something nearer a dark roast.
Maybe I haven't dialed this one in properly, but I'm finding this one a bit bitter.
Maybe a little darker than preferred, the beans grinded a little too easily, but a decent cup.
This coffee gets you at the minute you grind it. Rich and dark chocolate are spot on descriptions. No bitterness. Delicious.
Easily the WORST coffee we've received so far.
Nice earthiness with a touch of chocolate flavour - more noticeable [chocolate flavor] as the coffee cools. Medium richness. Would prefer more richness but otherwise a nice coffee.
Disappointed. Coffee seemed a bit harsh to us.
This is my favorite coffee so far and it tastes great no matter how it's made. I will be buying from this brand again.
Amazing! we love this one
This has been our favorite so far. Perfectly balanced. Strong but not overpowering. Very rich, earthy taste. Love it!
The idea of Boldly Go appealed to me, but the reality disappointed. The dark roast is earthy and bold, certainly; it is also sour on the finish, and overly bitter, even when brewed via careful pour-over in a chemex, and hand-ground with a Hario burr grinder. I wouldn't buy this again, but it's at least drinkable.
Good. Still a little too acidic
Very earthy without being bold. Mediocre at best.
My favorite so far, smooth, tasty, great texture. It did not get here until the 22nd, which was frustrating, but things should be on track now.
Moving rapidly to acid note after brewing
I would describe this as more of a light roast. Lots of citrus but not much dark chocolate.
Good but fairly different from the last batch - I think I preferred the first batch as it seemed a little brighter. This is a bit on the earthy side - almost "savory" if that makes sense? I prefer a little more balance and fruity notes I think
I brew in a chemex which I
Something is missing here. It tastes weak - like there's more flavor in there that hasn't been fully realized by the roast.
I switched to making cold brew coffee recently and this one tastes amazing as cold brew!
I really loved this one. It was rich and smooth and perfect for cold mornings.
A bit to earthy
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. PERFECT for am, PERFECT for after dinner.
Too bold? Both times I've made it, it seemed too strong, overpowering.
A very earthy and bold taste that is still very pronounced under layers of milk. I've made this as espresso shots and as pourover, and both taste great.
