The House Blend was carefully roasted for you by Metric Coffee Co. For most coffee drinkers, a House Blend is an introduction to a roaster's style of coffee. This is a perfect introduction to Metric's roast philosophy of clean, balanced and sweet coffees. Sourced from Brazil, Colombia, and Guatemala, this coffee is full bodied and rich with caramel sweetness, supported by notes of soft citrus and baking spices.
This one was sadly not a hit with the group members, despite it having a similar flavor description as many of our favorites.
I like the sweetness of this coffee, I agree it is a smooth, balanced cup. Not acidic at all.
Smooth and rich. Sweet, nutty flavor - not bitter. Only negative is that the coffee is very drying.
Might still be working on getting the coffee-water ratio correct on this one but finding it a little less enjoyable than the others
Just ok. Sort of flat and bland. Not bitter or sour, but nothing special.
I like the flavor and the aroma of this coffee. It has a nice smooth finish
Didn't even need sugar, a first for me and coffee. Loved the heavy chocolate tones, spot on for me :)
I immediately noticed sweet fruity flavor which I really enjoyed, this coffee was easy to drink, nice balanced cup to start my mornings. I rated this as a 3 star but it really came in just under a 4 star review for me.
A good, simple coffee, but nothing to write home about.
Can definitely taste notes of sweet fruits, raisins.
Not well balanced to my palate. Somewhere between eh and ok.
With Chemex brewing the raisin notes really come through. This is a very good every day coffee.
Although the beans are a little lighter than we typically enjoy. We like this coffee as much as we liked our first shipment. It is not acidic, sour or bitter. Very smooth which is most important.
This was ok, it didn't seem to have flavor I enjoyed. It didn't have a long finish.
I really like the sweetness and flavor of this one
Fragrant but not as bold in flavor as I usually prefer.
Smoothe and very easy to drink. Love the chocolate undertones.
Tastes like caramel. I also taste a hint of orange near the bottom of the shot.
loved the flavor and sweetness. Not acidic at all, very sweet and flavorful.
Makes a spot-on traditional espresso - smooth and sweet and light on fruit.
This coffee is really tasty. I recently switched to a Chemex brew and this coffee is really smooth.
Great overall cup of coffee! I loved the balance of flavors and could not wait to drink it every morning! No complaints.
Good compared to the previous two. Great as a cold brew.
This was good!
Nice flavor would like something a bit more bold
This coffee was just okay. I liked the Kickapoo one more despite the similar flavor profile.
I think I enjoyed this coffee a little less than my previous one. But that doesn't mean I didn't still enjoy it. It was a nice balanced flavor, but a little more burnt/roasty than I would prefer. I tasted the chocolate notes which I really liked, and there was even a little nutty flavor when the coffee was at it's hottest that I liked. Overall, pretty good coffee.
It's good. Maybe too much caramel for me.
Not very rich and bold. It tastes kind of bland to me.
I used my aeropress and it produce coffee nirvana with this blend . It left a lingering subtle sweetness . Amazing coffee
Delicious, smooth, dark but not burnt flavor; perhaps slightly sweet and nutty
Nice acidity balance with the subtle citrus notes.
Didnt care for the chocolate and fruity flavors. I prefer nutty flavors
Not bad, but a little too sweet and soft
well balanced but not particular rich or deep in flavor. Was better in drip than chemex
This coffee is not a rich enough or bold enough for my taste. This coffee is on the sweet side and very light.
Too bland, no flavor
Love this one! Very smooth and lovely taste.
Too light of a roast. Beans smelled good but when brewed it had to much acidity.
I really like the slightly sweet with baking spices. Great brew!
Another nice bean, but tastes like it was under roasted.
Mellow but full flavored. Really well balanced, no acidity at all (brewed with Chemex). Just super nice.
nice aroma and flavor
Too light of a a roast resulting in an acidic flavor
Great flavor but weak and thin
Compared to other blends I have received from MistiBox, this house blend by Metric just falls short. It has a nice smooth taste but is lacking a nice full flavor pallet. I understand house blends are usually crafted to introduce someone to that roaster but I feel that Metric could have done better with this one
Definitely full bodied with a good bit of sweetness when half/half is added, Solid cup.
While we favor light blends, this coffee was to light, not enough flavor.
I really enjoyed the notes of caramel.
A good cup of coffee, though maybe just a bit on the sweet side. Helps me deal with the pain of the alarm clock going off in the morning.
Really really tasty. I almost gave it a 5...but this is the best I have had yet!
Bland and confusing flavor.
I found this a little bland or, maybe, too subtle for me. I did not enjoy it as much as some of the other selections I have had.
Really enjoyed it. Very light, subtle, but still flavorful. I usually enjoy my coffee with cream, but enjoyed drinking this one black, as well.
WOW. I made the mistake of telling lots of coworkers about this one and letting them smell the bag... now I will probably run out of beans earlier than normal! This one is definitely my favorite so far! :)
