This is the Ethiopia Misty Valley brought to you by 1000 Faces Coffee. Grown by the various small holder producers in the Yirgacheffe region at 1,750 - 1,950 meters, this full natural coffee is a perfect example of why we love coffees from Ethiopia. This coffee is nuanced, with notes of black cherry to complex molasses and chocolate.
As I suspected, I liked the Misty Valley more than last month's Columbia. I typically like the Bright, fruity flavors I get from African coffees the most. In this one, I got a subtle taste of blueberry more than anything, which went great with my blueberry pancakes! haha.
While I love African coffees, I am still very much open to single-origin coffees from anywhere. My goal over the next year or so is to nail top my top 5 cups of coffee, so I'm looking forward to experimenting with a variety. Bring on the next one, Seth!! :)
I believe I liked my first one better!
This coffee has very distinct flavors that came out in full force on a slow drip cold brew with a sweet finish. As a hot coffee, the flavors blend together a bit more. Either way, it's quite delicious.
Excellent! Perfect balance of fruity and earth tones
Not as much flavor as other Mistobox coffees I have received. Hoping for something more flavorful with future shipments.
Being the 2nd coffee from Ethiopia, I'm starting to really like this flavor profile. I like the lighter mouthfeel. After drinking for a week and also comparing to the latest coffee from Kenya, I am starting to notice the lavender notes.
When I think of fruity, I really think of a cup like this one. Bright, yet mellow, floral yet not too strong, and ends with wholesome chocolateyness. My favorite "fruity" coffee thus far and I love the tiny town it comes from.
An utterly pleasant and dynamic cup of coffee from start to finish. The berry (even cherry) scent of the beans comes through nicely when brewed, and the fruitiness is nicely balanced with the cocoa finish.
Love this one! The sweet, fruity notes are really pleasant, and it's very aromatic. Would definitely drink this one again.
This is a lighter roast, more floral / fruity and something that I enjoyed.
I really like the flavor for this one! It's not too dark, really tasteful.

I really like the berry flavor here. I like the lighter roast too. I like it better than the previous one overall
Haven't had a bad cup of coffee from a bag of 1000 faces coffee yet.
It was alright...it was complex, but in a bland sort of way...hmmmm
liked this coffee a lot. fruit notes without being too sweet and definitely not bitter
Definitely one of my favorites so far.
Good quality. But a but more fruity (both taste and aroma) than I generally prefer.
Too fruity for my taste! I'm looking for something a bit more robust.
This is a really solid coffee. Its body is smooth and mouthfeel is silky, and it certainly has an impressive range of detectable flavors - I definitely get the lavender and blueberry as suggested on the bag, but I'd also say it tastes and feels a lot like dried rosemary.
I played around with the grind a bit, but it's pretty easy to muddle this cup with a slightly off grind or bean:water ratio. Only when I bypassed the filter and added a little more water than the brew guide suggests was I really able to separate the flavors.
I dig it, but it's not my absolute forever jam. I definitely appreciate coffee that is lighter and nuanced like tea, but I may be partial to less tannic/drying cups of coffee.
