This is the Jaguar Espresso Fair Trade Organic brought to you by Equator Coffees & Teas. Jaguar is a complex espresso blend that combines organic and Fair Trade certified coffees from the world’s major growing regions: Latin America, East Africa and Indonesia. With this blend we take a new world approach to a traditional-style espresso. Together these coffees provide rich, full flavors of bittersweet chocolate, spices, apricot and hazelnut.
Extremely bitter. The initial taste is slightly richer like bittersweet chocolate, but that richer taste quickly gives way to a less desirable bitterness that is very close to lemon peel in flavor, and that lemon peel bitterness overwhelms the taste buds. This one goes in the trash bin.
I definitely enjoyed this one. Tried this one as cold brew as well and it was pretty smooth.
Good, drinkable dark roast
I enjoy it, nice sutal favor, great aroma
This one was lacking something. Lined it, didn't love it. Flavor wasn't deep enough. Had some nice notes, but something lacking compared to the previous beans (Calombe).
LOVE this -- super dark and rich
Good - like it. Didn't make me cry though.
I found the Jaguar Espresso to have a light bitter sweet taste, low acidity with good mouth feel. I can taste the hints of hazelnut and chocolate tones. Its not as dark an espresso as I like. This is a solid 4 stars with me, I would be proud to serve this to anyone. I utilized this exclusilvely in my DeLonghi espresso machine.
Truly loved this blend. A prefect dark but delicate cup, rich and fragrant.
Dry beans, deep caramel color
French press- vigorous bloom emits a savory aroma
Low/medium acidity and medium mouthfeel
Starts with nutty chocolate and suggestions of citrus
A round, complex cup with a distinctly spicy finish
Nothing special about this coffee, sorry
The brewed coffee is not bitter which is good, however it is not flavorful...like it's watered-down and the flavor is "hiding" (don't know if this makes sense?).
Loved this one! Thank you!
One of my favorites currently.
I really enjoyed this one. It was deep, warm, a full bodied. When I first brewed it, the hazelnut was up front, and as I've tinkered with temps the other flavors takes turns.
This coffee was good. I'm not sure how to describe it. It almost had an herbal quality to it which was new to me.
One of the better espresso's tasted so far in our journey to find that perfect espresso for lattes. It has a nice bold taste and definitely can taste the chocolate overtones. Love the stamping of a roasted on date. So important, but rarely found.
I really enjoy the unique flavors of this espresso blend. Not typically what I would expect, which is awesome! The only real downside I can say is... relatively low caffeine content.
Love it!!! Perfect Balance
This coffee it our favorite so far. It's nice and bold, but has a smooth finish.
Love this one too it's rich creamy taste is what I'm liking about it this morning and I take my coffee black nothing added. Definitely is a eye opener
this tasted richer than the roma espresso blend but also suffered from lack of structure when compared to Nizza - it was not burnt or acidic - inconsistent roast quality when compared to Nizza but an improvement over the roma espresso
This expresso style coffee was not very strong and did elicit the deep rich taste I like with and expresso style coffee. The aftertaste was weak and is lost in the steamed milk for a latter. It is lighter on the acid so a milder coffee taste for me.
Pretty good. Nice, robust flavor.
Rich and dark, nice with cream
I love this coffee it is bold and the favor lingers on my taste buds. It's so good I don't want to brush my teeth after drinking it.
Enjoyed this coffee as a pour-over with milk. I found it to be an enjoyable dark roast!
Could not get it dialed in - overroasted for my taste
Nice smooth flavor - pulls an excellent shot
Hard to pin down whether this rating is correct or not, since as my first mistobox coffee, I don't have anything else to compare it to.Overall: I loved the smell of the whole beans, but I disliked the smell after grinding them.I made drip coffee.Even though I didn't care for the aroma of the ground coffee, I *did* enjoy the flavor. I'd say the aroma of the ground beans reminded me of a light roast, and the brewed coffee tasted great.
Excellent blend of chocolate and coffee notes. Fantastic as espresso
