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.
Great coffee, had a good bold flavor without the heavy bitterness of other coffees.
Thought this coffee was good. I think I liked the previous roast a little better. I think maybe I like a little less of the sweet/chocolately notes but still enjoyed this blend.
Very well balanced, and smooth mouth feel.
Love the blend and balance of this coffee.
Subtle chocolate flavor, very balanced.
This coffee is amazing, I use it to make espresso for lattes
Initially tasted sour, lowered the brewing temperature for the espresso, and it was better, the sour was gone but still tasted a little bitter. Did not taste much at all like the description to me.
This coffee has a great strong flavor that was reminicent of chocolate with a bit of sweetness. We really enjoyed using it for our morning espresso as a great way to wake up.
We loved this coffee. The chocolate and cherry notes we balanced and delicious.
I like this coffee slightly better than the Good Folks Day Tripper Blend; however, I'm still getting the sour/acidic aftertaste which I do not prefer. What I do like is Colombian coffee.

This coffee is weak tasting, even after I used more scoops than usual.
A well balanced cup but seems a bit thin.
Really good. Right down the middle and what you'd expect of a house blend.
Really enjoyed the balance both in a medium grind with Aeropress and a fine grind for Espresso
Yum, could be darker?
Love everything about this. Strong and flavorful with great aroma, without being too dark. Would drink every day
Thin coffee, weak taste, not a very good after taste.
Smooth & tasty.
3.7 rating. It was hard to go from the espresso to this blend. It seems very light and I would like a darker blend. Still an overall good tasting coffee.
A little too sweet for my liking.
It's smooth and doesn't have a harsh after taste. The smell doesn't really make me excited to get up in the morning and the taste isn't really what I care for.
Super smooth! Perfect to drink black or with milk - iced or hot! My favorite so far!
Clean, borderline boring. Easy to brink, but somewhat forgettable
Not as full and luxurious as the last shipment, it's more thin and bright. I've brewed it iced every time, but maybe I'll try a little more beans, or going a little less coarse on the grind. I'll come back and update if that changes things. UPDATE: more beans, finer grind just brought out more brightness.
Nice flavor, well balanced.
This coffee was good, but I like to taste the coffee, it was a little weak for me.
Pulled my first shot of this today and it is fantastic.
Good, but not as excellent as our first shipment. Much more mild than the Atomic blend, which we loved.
This was a really good coffee. I can definitely taste the cherry notes.
This has been my favorite pick since signing up. It's full bodied but delicate and robust. Just wonderful overall! And I can't get over the packaging!
This house blend has been enjoyable for me. It has the same smooth taste as other coffees with this similar flavor profile.
Drinkable but I really prefer less sweet, and an even more bold roast flavor.
very smooth - liked all the flavors. I enjoy the caramel flavors in this roast.
Probably the best coffee sent to me so far
Very strong chocolate notes with no bitterness. Very good.
this was good, but not nearly as good as the anodyne tolima. Tasted a little on the dirty side...not as smooth
Terrible Taste. Bland and hope that my next batch is better.
Not bad. Best way for me to describe: It left my mouth feeling a little dry with subtle hints of sour citrus aftertaste.
Decent. I expected a little more flavor.
Very tasty and has light flavors. Not very strong and great way to start my morning
I wasn't a big fan of the caramel notes in this one.
I can't remember the details, but I know I enjoyed it!
A Perfect 'Good Morning' Cup!
Good flavor, but felt like it was lacking a little body.
Nice flavor.. little closer to the robustness I prefer
Did not think I would like this after reading the description but I do. Since I drink it black, it did not taste like I imagined and that was good. I like coffee that tastes like coffee and I imagined that this would not. Think I like the first one better.
this coffee is delicious
This may have been my favorite coffee so far, just ahead of The 1950 Verve. It's clean and light and not bitter/sour at all, with no burnt aftertaste. I'm noticing that my two favorites have "baking spices" in the description. While I still love my coffee with a healthy dose of unsweetened BetterHalf (so good!), I'm finding that between the Chemex and really good beans, I don't need or want all the sweet, sugary creamers or sweeteners I used before. I actually ran out of beans today because I find myself wanting to drink more than one cup in the mornings!
Dark & sharp tasting
Love the subtle spiciness. Might be interested in something stronger in general.
Good coffee. Love the notes of chocolate and it was a good strength for me. Good cold or hot
I felt like I could taste the "citrusy" notes more than the chocolatey notes. While it was full-bodied, it was not as much as the last one, which I enjoyed more. I did drink this without my usual splash of milk though! So that is exciting.
It's smooth with a hint of Carmel
Best coffee mistobox has delivered.
I appreciate the sweetness of this blend. I also like that it has an earthy taste but still other flavors are noticeable. My only issue with this roast is the chocolate hints. This was also something I didn't like in my previous month's coffee. Is there a way to get sweet without chocolate?
I did not like this batch. Funny, felt like it was lite even though it is categorized as full body. I did change my cream up on this round, maybe that was different.
Easy drinking and well rounded. You can't go wrong with this one. It's not acidic. Clean, balanced and sweet describes it perfectly. The flavors are not complex, but that's okay. It's also has nice body w/ good mouth fell. I'm really enjoying it!
Did not think this coffee had a good aroma, whole beans or when being brewed. Did not have as much flavor as the previous bag. Drinkable
Enjoyed the mellowness of this blend a lot--chocolate notes were greatly appreciated without being overwhelming. Was great with cream. It was a very good coffee for me to take to work every morning, easy to sip on without getting boring. Clean and balanced as described. Looking forward to trying this as a cold brew overnight.
Really impressed with this blend. Clean flavors, well rounded.
This coffee is excellent. We never made a bad cup and were disappointed when the bag was empty. The coffee beans smelled fabulous and brewed a nice smooth, chocolatey cup.
Another really good coffee. I give it 4 stars also simply because I want a wider range of coffees to compare it too. I believe the notes are more subtle compared to the Verve "seabright." I will say that my wife prefers the Metric House Blend over Verve Seabright. For me it's up in the air, both are really good.
Tastes great, Chicago is killing the coffee game.
Loved the body and the clean taste. It had a nice rich flavor and no bitterness. Brewed using hario pour-over.
I thought it was very good. Not bitter or sour. Tasted like something a fine restaurant would provide.
Amazing!! Was a hit with the whole family. Probably my favorite so far!
It was pretty good. I loved the smell of the coffee when it first arrived, but the taste didn't quite live up to the initial smell. When I first opened the coffee it smelled a lot like caramel, but the taste wasn't nearly as sweet as the smell. Not bad at all, just an odd difference between the two that was hard to wrap my head around.
Pretty smooth and non acidic! I like the caramel taste/smell! I usually do pour over and make two mason jars of cold brew. Gave it four stars because it wasn't anything special but was very good nonetheless.
not bitter at all, but a full, rich, flavorful sip
I really like this one--the roast wasn't overpowering, and the taste is smooth, balanced, with just enough richness to balance out some of the sweeter, fruitier flavors
Decent cup out of V60, although brewing with a chemex was a bit lacking. Notes of chocolate are forward and heavy, with spices on the finish note.
This roast is delicious! I'm looking forward to this coffee every morning right now. I love the full body without the bitter acidic aftertaste and the subtle sweetness.
easy to drink but not as much flavor depth as the previous bag.
Definitely think we like the subtly sweeter coffee blends. Prefer this one over the last coffee we received. I can't tell if we're diggin' the caramel or not though. Seems stronger in this blend than the last.
Nice big chocolate flavor with creamy mouthfeel from hario
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! :)
