This coffee will be fresh roasted for you. We expect Onyx Coffee Lab will roast and ship this coffee in 1-2 business days depending on their roasting schedule.
This is the Colombia San Antonio brought to you by Onyx Coffee Lab. This coffee was sourced from the coffee growing region of Valle de Cauca in Colombia. Through persistent dedication to coffee quality, Pedro Echavarria produced a spectacular crop of coffee. This fully washed coffee was grown at an altitude of 1,800 meters and consisted of Bourbon and Castillo varieties. We think this coffee is fantastically rich, with notes of roasted nuts and brown sugar, balanced by fruit notes of dates and plums.
this bag was really excellent. the sweet chocolatey notes at the end left a great aftertaste. full taste with a pleasant brightness. one of my favorites.
nice tasting coffee. darker than i was expecting but great.
Overall, I liked the coffee, however, I like coffees that trend more fruity and sweet rather than nutty and chocolate.
delicious. real smooth. smells amazing. id drink it everyday.
I have nothing bad to say about this coffee. It was the perfect coffee to hurriedly brew right before tossing it in my Keep Cup and driving to work. During my morning commute, I've definitely gotten the notes listed above, but I'd also add an undertone of tobacco. This coffee ended up being very low maintenance, which is good. Some days my husband makes the pour over and we aren't necessarily comparing notes as we brew cup to cup. All that to say, a very sturdy, delicious, and low maintenance coffee!
I liked this one a lot. Tons of flavor and a great cup to wake up to. Super rich and balanced.
I didn't know light roast could be this smooth.
This is pretty good coffee. Strangely, it was only the last couple of brews where i was able to really start detecting the sweeter notes. I think it needs a couple weeks to mature properly. Before that, it had a bit of a bitter aftertaste, though it was pretty mild. The flavor profile is very nice, but it could be a little more interesting. Overall, delicious, if slightly on the "safe" side.
Good introductory choice. Well-balanced and not acidic.
I have enjoyed this coffee, though I do not pick up on the fruity notes - the nutty flavor comes through much more for me. It also tastes "clean" ... does not leave an heavy coffee aftertaste.
This was a very good coffee that I would definitely drink again. I definitely agree with the tasting notes that it is fantastically rich, and the notes of brown sugar were nice.
I think its a good coffee and I really enjoyed the brighter notes from a Latin American coffee.
I loved this coffee! I was a little hesitant about the fruit flavor since I am not a fan of fruity coffee but it wasn't overwhelming. I could tell the batch was extremely fresh and the packaging was on point!
Light, smooth, very easy to drink a couple cups
I'm really enjoying this coffee. I crudely make this division in my head of South American coffees as being in the nutty/caramel/chocolate camp (with help from the provided description) and African coffees as being berry "fruit bombs", and I think this one fits my South American stereotype, in a good way (I'll add that I really enjoy both profiles). I taste less fruit (dates and plums in the description) than the description says - I'm getting much more of the brown sugar/nuts. To be a little more creative I'll say that this coffee reminds me of a bookstore I love (Boswell books in Milwaukee) in part because has a lot of dark wooden bookshelves and the flavor translates to this image in my head. Looking at the coffee flavor wheel, I'm also reminded of black tea (some of that tanin taste in the back of the tongue) plus a lot of hazelnut/molasses/dark chocolate. I'd say this one is 90% brown sugar/chocolate/nuts and 10% dried fruit. For my next one, I'd be interested to wade into something with a little more fruit (specifically melons, apples, citrus fruit) or spices or floral notes and a little less chocolate/nuts/brown sugar.
It was light, balanced, caramel notes, good start for the first cup of the day.
Much too earthy and not nearly complex enough. A little sad this is how my shipments started :/
Overall a good coffee, slightly on the dark side for my taste when I'm making a V60 or Chemex cup.
Hi Seth. I liked this coffee but was not wow'd by it. I tried it in the french press and percolator - it was (as expected) better in the french press. I declined the Zambia coffee because I don't care for African coffees (or any citrusy coffees). I'm about to start working crazy hours and may need to just percolate coffee for a while. Does it make sense to move from the Deluxe coffee subscription to the basic one?
I'm really liking this one, but I have one knock—it might be *too* smooth. Perhaps I'm not brewing enough grounds (I use a Keurig brewer with a refillable basket, and try to fill the basket to the top), or maybe I'm using too fine a grind, but the Onyx seems to lack some of the brightness of Gevalia's signature blend, which if my usual brew.
I will say, this is a coffee I can drink all. day. long. It's a very easy-going, mellow blend. Thanks for the great recommendation!
There was absolutely nothing offensive about this, but it did t have as much body as I would have liked. I liked the caramel notes a lot. The fruit notes were very obvious, but fruit is never my favorite note to have.
Josh and Frankie
I really enjoyed this bag. I would say that maybe future bags could be slightly less fruity? I find fruity flavors to be good for a cup or two, and then I start to get tired of them.
Good morning Connor! Finally had the opportunity to try the coffee. This was my first experience using the Hario V60. I did some online research and finally settled on Matt Perger's video as my reference (12g coffee, 200 g water, 97 C, ground on the Baratza Encore setting #14. 50g water poured while stirring, 50g g @ :30, 100g at 1:00, poured in circular motion, spiraling out from center.)
It came out great. Traditionally, I add half n half at home, and half n half and sugar when I am out and about because I don't trust most casual places. To me the hallmark of a good cup is if it doesn't need embellishment.
I tasted the Columbia San Antonio straight and it didn't need anything else. I was really pleased. I apologize in advance, Connor, because my cupping vocabulary and faculties are not well developed. Here are my impressions:
It immediately tasted "bright" to me: I kept waiting for the bitterness I associate with black coffee and I think my tongue was surprised when it didn't show up. I was left with the flavors and trying to identify them. I tasted what I thought of as "fruity" and then something I called sweet, but wasn't really sweet. Hard to put my finger on, but it was a pleasant almost "round" feeling which I associate with sweetness, but not exactly sweet. Then I tasted something I thought of as "earthy" or "nutty".
I really enjoyed it. 12g of coffee + 200g of water with no cream and froth makes for a much smaller cup of coffee than I am accustomed to. It took me about ten minutes of sipping and thinking to go through it.
Am curious about your thoughts regarding brewing methods. Tomorrow AM I plan on making some for myself and my sweetheart, Karen. I have a 32 oz presspot, and was thinking of trying it in there. Just scaling up the pour over ratio. Any suggestions would be greatefully appreciated.
Thanks for the Columbia San Antonio, Connor! It was a treat.
sour and flat taste. not good for espresso!
We loved how mellow and light it was.
Nick and Ben
This one reminds me of stuff I've had in coffee shops. There's a particular quality that seems popular in high-end coffee, but which I don't love. It might be the "fruit notes" as in the description. To me it comes through as a sourness that's kinda new and different from my usual, but not altogether pleasant. I think it's objectively good for what it is, but not what I generally love to drink.
I think this is also a bit lighter than my preferred roast. I think a medium or even dark roast might be better for me -- something fuller bodied with chocolate notes.
Very good coffee, I am thoroughly enjoying it. I love the hints of brown sugar and the fact here are fruit notes but not in an overpowering way.
Overall I really liked this coffee. The bag mentioned bourbon notes which got me very excited but I didn't really get those flavors from dining it. I think I could go even lighter than this roast in the future. But this one was very flavorful and enjoyable.
1st brew: Super rich, nutty flavor on the Chemex. Some spicier notes toward the end. Not quite as fruit-forward as some other Colombia I have had, but overall, a good cup. 45g/720g
I read the description and the coffee sounded interesting; a few of the ingredients weren't necessarily something I normally try. The coffee though is excellent and should be made at a lower temperature. I'd highly recommend it.
I have never been disappointed with a coffee from Onyx, and the streak continues. Sweet brown sugar, peach and apricot, and light hazelnut make up this incredible offering.
Though I do like this, I've had a lot of Onyx in the past and this one isn't necessarily their best, in my opinion.
I would love something with tones that are more citrus-forward coffees.
Not as fruity as I'd like, but still very good.
Coffee has a rich caramel undertone which I really enjoyed, but I feel as though the beans were slightly overroasted giving an ashy aftertaste.
I loved this coffee! Very little bitterness, smooth and balanced taste.
Couldn't taste the fruit as well in this, but definitely get a lot of Carmel flavour.
My favorite roaster
Smells amazing, and produces a deliciously rich cup every time!
While I believe the description in tastes is accurate (brown sugar, roasted nuts) - it definitely wouldn't be one i'd define as fruity/jammy in any way.
Coffee is ok. It's not something I would want to have every day because it is too much on the nutty, earthy side and too full body for my liking.
Fantastic. Has an evident sweetness of brown sugar at first and finishes smoothly. Not over bearing in sweetness, also contains an earthy nuttiness that is enjoyable. Would definitely purchase again. Definitely a top ten favorite bean.
Every coffee device I own made an incredible cup of coffee with this! The fruit notes came out strong! Overall, a highly enjoyable cup.
Hi. I prefer lighter and sweeter flavors. I thought the San Antonio had notes of caramel and dark chocolate. It tasted a bit smoky and bitter to me.
Not the biggest fan of the fruit/sweet bite. Good coffee just not for my flavor profile.
Definitely nice and nutty, hard not to over extract, even in a chemex. Wish it had more depth
The Colombia San Antonio is a great cup of coffee. The flavor is mild at the front of the palate (perhaps too mild) and well rounded at the back. It provides a full mouth feel and an easy drink.
Chocolatey and a bit nutty. Very good coffee, but nothing complex or exciting.
This is a delightful cup from start to finish! I primarily like to use a chemex with it, 24g coffee to 350g water, and it is a very smooth coffee with a chocolatey aftertaste. I usually prefer an African (primarily Ethiopian) bean over South American, but I was pleasantly surprised with this roast!
I really like this coffee. I've been primarily making it in a Chemex 39g coffee to 700g water. It works especially well with my Able Kone filter-- the date and brown sugar really come through without the paper. Really good iced as well since it has a really low acidity.
I love the coffee from Onyx.
An instant classic for me. I think this embodies the epitome of Columbian coffee from my experience.
Brewed on a V60 with 1:14 to 1:15 ratio. Chocolate and molasses dominate the palette with mild nuttiness and subtle fruit. A great cup to introduce someone to craft coffee.
Good flavor. Tastes more like what a traditional coffee should taste like in my book. My favorite wow coffees are usually ethiopian or panamanian coffees. This isn't that, but its very good for fans of chocolatey, nutty coffees. I tasted many of the notes listed, caramel, nutty, creamy and some fruit. Encouraging start to Mistobox considering it was one of the best chocolatey, nutty, rich coffees I've tasted. But looking forward to the fruitier, more wow coffees they have to offer.
A little to acidic to my taste, not that much subtility. Maybe lacking a little Sweetness.
Pretty good, all-around coffee. Tasted a bit one-note for me, - a strong nutty taste, with maybe a bit citrus popping towards the end. Decent coffee that I would drink again, but probably wouldn't specifically seek it out.
I loved this coffee.. It smelled just as good as it tested. Very smooth and rich in nutty flavor.
This coffee was different from the coffees I am usually drawn toward. Colombia San Antonio was bolder, nutty, with hints of brown sugar and dark chocolate in it. I brewed it on the V60 01, the Kalita Wave 185, and the French Press. I found that the French Press did the best job at highlighting its bolder notes and nutty tones. While this isn't my preferred coffee (I generally lean toward fruity and clean), I enjoyed this coffee as a nice change of pace to my usual routine.
Meets my expectations! Nothing stood out to me in terms of flavor notes- just a good all-around coffee. I've probably been spoiled, because this coffee blew my rommates' minds. I brewed a cup for one of them in the morning; in the evening she told me she was "still thinking about that coffee"! Thank you for the satisfactory cup!
I like this one pretty well, a nice nutty roasted flavor with a hint of fruitiness. My favorite is the mid flavor after the first taste but before the aftertaste (which is kinda sour).
I liked this coffee! I don't know how to identify the underlying flavors yet, but I can tell you it seemed light and smooth to me. I made this Colombia San Antonio along with a pot of the Folgers (!) in my pantry and obviously a HUGE difference, and I don't even have a sensitive palate for coffee. If this is a "light" roast, I might be interested in trying more of a "medium" roast next. This was light and playful - it was better made slightly stronger. This was very good!
We like this one -it's a little darker than we prefer. It brews a fairly robust cup, but in the future I'd like something a little more bright, vibrant, funky - the fruit notes in this bean were nice, but I like something that pops a little more.
Surprising fruit notes for an American coffee. Fairly dynamic in respect to temperature. The coffee starts by having a lower body and acidity and gaining relatively significant sweetness and a developed woodiness as the beverage cools. Finish is lackluster: featuring a sharp decline from the palette leaving only a glimmer of brown sugar. I'm picking up a small peppery/tobacco note, akin to perique, near the end of the finish. Overall, it's a decent coffee that would be great as a delicate 'morning' coffee, but leaves much to be desired in terms of sweetness, acidity, body, and finish.
I made this in my aeropress and it was good but not great. I have since made it twice in my chemex and the flavor was a lot better. I'm going to try it again in the aero.
I brewed with my aeropress this morning and let the water cool a bit (like I did with the Chemex this weekend) and it tasted a whole lot more pleasant. Clearly I need to actually brew closer to 200 than straight off the boil. I don't have a reasonable way to check temp in my kettle so waiting around a minute seems to be all I have. Thanks again. Great coffee!
great flavor notes, but could definitely be more dramatic in its flavors
Rebecca & Justin
Chocolatey and smooth. Delicious from our pour over.
Both an excellent cold brew and hot coffee, which I brewed in an aeropress. Great way to start out summer mornings!
The coffee was delicious, The aromatics were strong and nutty. I had to try a couple different brew methods to get to the one I liked best... In the end, this coffee was super clean and picked up more of the fruit notes when it was done in a chemex.
Anything three and above I definitely like and would drink again. This what I would give a 3.5 if I could. I can most definitely taste a toffee like/brown sugar overtone. The fruit notes mentioned are there in the form of a lightly acidic feel though they are very understated. I like this coffee because it is likely a crowdpleaser, and I could drink it every day without getting tired of it. 3.5 because, as you probably knew, I wasn't completely blown away but I really liked it. I've only brewed it with the Chemex, so after I brew through the V60, I will hopefully taste some more of those sweeter notes.
UPDATE: The sweeter notes of the stone fruits have really come out through the V60. I think for me, it's the best brew method for this coffee! The way it accentuated the acidity really did it for me. I'm changing it to 4 stars.
Very nice coffee. I did a concentrated cold brew with it and the flavors tasted a little sweeter than I thought they would. Pretty good cup, although the plum flavor felt lost to me.
Enjoyed this coffee a lot but it reminded me of my usual name brand coffee (Starbucks Veranda). I should point out that I'm still developing a pallet for different coffee tastes...
This is an update to my previous review. After sipping on this coffee for the past few weeks, I really like this on. I typically go for med to dark roasts and this is definitely on the lighter side for me, but once I figured out my way of preparing it (pour-over) i loved it.
I love Colombia coffees. My list trip to Medellin a local friend had beans roasted the day I departed. This Onyx roast is smooth, rich and i do detect the fruity notes.
great pick! gonna be a hard one to follow. we like the fruity notes in this coffee. we liked how smooth it was to drink. We don't like chocolatey ones for future reference. if they can stay in this realm we will be friends for a very long time.
A well balanced cup. Smooth with a slight fruity finish. Did I mention it's balanced?
Great 1st coffee from Mistobox. Very balanced, smooth, and creamy. Was able to pick up on a little of the date/brown sugar sweetness. Brewed on the Clever and Chemex.
I liked it but I ground the batch coffee too course (using a chemex and currently don't have a personal grinder so I just grind the bag at a store) and didn't get to enjoy it as well as I would like. Descriptive flavors were about right
The best coffee I have had to date. Been brewing this one as a pour over. Nice round body, Good robust flavor while not being too strong and smooth like velvet
Delicious! This coffee had a full flavor with tones of brown sugar and dates. Tasted rich but not overbearing at all. The roast was perfect! Was a great start to the morning.
This is a good, medium roast coffee that works well with a pour-over or a siphon brewer. This is a little light for me, but is otherwise pretty good.
Very nice cup of coffee. Smooth and very well balanced. Definitely got some fruit on the nose and a little sweet flavor. Not very acidic at all would have like it a little brighter.
Full flavor with little to no brightness in the finish. Fantastic first batch.
The coffee is good and is a great morning cup. It's got some darker notes of caramel and almonds but I wouldn't describe it as a dark cup. I v60'd this coffee mostly and it tastes great first thing in the morning. Usually later in the day, I like a fruitier coffee so this didn't quite cut it in the afternoon. Solid choice though, overall.
Nice toasty flavors. Got some nuts and a little bit of sweetness. Wish I found more of the fruitiness.
Delicious beans. Roast was light, flavor complex. More coffee like this please!
I've been drinking a lot of Colombian coffees lately and have enjoyed them. This coffee served well as an aero press, not too spectacular as a Gino pour over, which I've been trying lately. Would love to Chemex it as well, looking forward to how it tastes there
My first coffee from Mistobox and I was impressed. It is a light roast and not too strong on coffee taste. The caffeine boost is fair and not a strong aftertaste. I would buy this again
Too much of a brown sugar flavor for me.
I really liked this coffee because of it's bold flavor, but I would also enjoy something that is a little more fruity and sweet.
My wife and I enjoyed this coffee. We were a little hesitant reading the notes, it sounded like a bolder coffee, but it was actually fairly light. My wife does like the "brighter" notes of coffees, but this was a win for us.
Unique, balanced coffee. Notes of cherry, wine, and tangy. Smells a little like incense. Great choice.
Great coffee overall but not my favorite. I'd say if you really love just a standard "coffee" tasting coffee with a good rich flavor, then you'll dig this. The aroma is OK but there's nothing crazy about it. I didn't pick up much extra flavor or fruity notes but overall I liked it.
Overall this is a very good coffee but not the style that I typically seek out. Very rich and nutty. My preference is more fruity, bright coffees that I typically find in African coffees, particularly Ethiopian and Rwandan.
Great everyday roast.
Flavor was pretty muted. Had one brew that showed some bitterness, but perhaps that was user error. My best brew method for this one was Japanese Iced.
Makes for a great cup of coffee. I can't put my finger on anything that makes this truly standout but definitely a solid brew.
Loved this one from Onyx. Had such a refreshing creamy flavor to it. Look forward to more from onyx
I really loved this coffee. In the beginning, it tastes a lot like fresh grapes but as it cools it starts to taste more like raisins. Highly recommend.
I really enjoyed this coffee. It almost taste chocolaty / fruity. Very enjoyable.
It was a little too heavy for my taste
Amazing blend! Deep, rich, soothing flavor.
I didn't love this or hate this --- was a little dark for my taste, and not as fruity as I prefer. Flavors were pretty muted, and a bit bitter at the end of the cup. But nice aroma and sweetness.
Might be worthy of 5, but since it's my first coffee, I only gave it 4 in case I like others more.
I'm giving this one 3/5 simply due to my personal taste. The coffee was very enjoyable regardless. Nice caramel, nutty, and sugar notes. I found it hard to bring out the fruit flavors mentioned. But I really dug it as an iced v60 pour over. Also great hot through a Chemex (the thicker filters lightened up the cup). I would recommend this as a great starter coffee for someone transitioning to specialty roasted coffees.
This one is what you want if you desire a full-bodied Columbia coffee that is neither bitter nor tasting like it was roasted in a forest fire. Excellent for that after-dinner relaxation cup or to serve guests that want coffee instead of wine.
Very smooth, good taste
This was a good coffee. The first 3 cups seemed a little darker than I expected. After that the flavor started to open up a bit. Overall, I liked it and it fell in the high-middle for me in my overall coffee experience.
I'm unsure if it's my pour over technique, but I'm finding it hard to tease out the flavors. Maybe cloth filter isn't the way to go for this one. I'd probably prefer this roasted a bit lighter. No particular fruity or sweet notes come through the background of nutty and toasty for me. But certainly enjoyable for this style. 3 stars for my personal palette and its tempermentalness with cloth filters.
UPDATE: I finally dialed in some amazing brews from this. It's still slightly a bit darker than I might choose for myself, but after increasing the amount of grounds, lowering the temperature, and sifting out more of the fines, I've managed some sweetness coming through. I'd describe the flavor as having hints of walnuts and raisins.
Liked the brown sugar and stone fruit notes in this light bodied coffee.
A little light for our liking and the aftertaste was a bit acidic.
Don't want to rate too highly straight out of the gate but this is definitely one of the best cups of coffee i've ever made. I used the Aeropress (Lukas Zahradnik Method) And thoroughly enjoyed its rich flavor.
Good, not great. Probably a few more savory tones than is my preference, but a solid coffee.
I enjoyed this coffee for the baker chocolate and slightly silky mouth feel but wanted it to carry through more on the fruit end of things. It seemed slightly flat, which could be that I only have brewed it on Chemex. Not sure if it is the coffee itself or if it was roasted a ting lighter it might give into the brightness a bit more. All that said it is an enjoyable morning brew as it did not overwhelm me with any one thing to much.
Very good coffee, truly enjoyed it! 4 starts just b/c I like to reserve 5 star ratings sparingly.
Pretty good, but a little earthier than our preference
This is the best coffee I have ever tasted. The brown sugar and plum notes are utterly delicious. I would gladly drink this every day!
This coffee has a nice weight to it and is not too bitter or dark. However, I would prefer something with a little more acidity and pronounced flavor.
maybe we are brewing this wrong, but this seemed to have a little bitterness towards the end. not our fave!
Very well balanced, interesting notes here
Nice brown sugar taste. Didn't care for the aroma but tastes great.
This coffee didn't do much for me. Seemed too straightforward and maybe a bit too dark/chocolatey/nutty. Definitely smooth and pleasant to drink, and the quality of bean is obvious, but it didn't excite me. I think I would prefer a lighter roast next time, something with more complexity and fruitiness.
Favorite of coffees sent so far.
I used this amazing roast on the v60. It's clean, bright, and pleasantly flavorful. Absolutely loved it!
This is a really nice cup of coffee! Mild, but interesting- fruity with brown sugar notes.
Excellent smell. Flavor is earthy with many dessert like characteristics. While good, I prefer the fruitier flavor of many African origin coffees.
This coffee was good but not as complex as I would have liked it to be. I brewed in my chemex, and it bloomed very nicely with great aromas. Unfortunately, the taste was fairly average and got increasingly bitter towards the end of my cup. This was still a very quality coffee, but for me it was boring compared to African Varieties.
I love the taste of this. This is my first time trying a lighter roast. I am enjoying this.
I really enjoyed this Colombia. I thought this was some of the smoothest and most balanced coffee that I have ever had. For any of my friends that have never tried coffee without milk or sugar this is where I would start them. It had very little bite or acidity. In some respects, I wish that some of the flavors were a bit stronger. As a whole I do prefer more pronounced flavors or something a bit more complex.
Found this one to be a solid, but pretty conventional roast. Almost like a Dunkin Donuts. VERY light in flavor and a fair amount of acidity, although not overpoweringly so. Not a big roast by any means, which is what I prefer. Not a lot of complexity of flavor, but nothing objectionable either.
Note: Tested pot was in a Brazen Behmor, 32g beans to 600ml RO water. Brewed at 200*F.
Lively and smooth. Love it!!
I like fruitier beans with a lighter roast. I use French press most days (chemex on weekends) and it was a bit harsh with the French press (better w/ chemex).
I've been drinking so many lighter, African coffees, it was actually great to get a richer, sweeter coffee into the mix. I really enjoyed it.
Well-rounded, full taste, clean finish, not much depth of flavor, a solid cup.
Good, but not very exciting in the cup. Prefer a juicier, fruitier coffee.
On first brew I thought it was a bit light in flavor, but after a few more days I think my pallet opened up and I am tasting the rich nut and plum notes. I like it, but am not blown away. Never the less, still very happy and I think this batch will continue to grow on me.
I like this one a lot, very much your traditional South American coffee with a bit of extra depth. Especially feeling the creaminess of this one. After dialing in the brew, I managed to pull out some of the depth I had missed before. Hints of cinnamon on the nose, and a deep molasses front led to a nice dark chocolate finish.
This is definitely not one of my favorites. I like the acidity. The brown sugar is overpowering and not pleasant, though. I honestly can't taste any of the other flavor notes. I like the others I have had much better.
Clean taste, no bitterness, but not particularly flavorful
I think I like more of the fruity, citrus flavors and this seemed to be a bit too strong/chocolate flavored for me.
I was pretty surprised to get Onyx coffee. I actually lived next to the cafe in Arkansas and my wife was a barista there. Perfect coffee for me, I love the richness and the fruit notes.
Really enjoyed the nuttiness of this bean. It was surprisingly chocolatey when brewed through a chemex over ice. Normally not my thing but still delicious.
I enjoyed this coffee! It is not the best I have ever had from Onyx, but it is certainly a coffee I would buy again. The brown sugar aroma makes it enjoyable to brew and the slight raisiny sweetness makes it enjoyable to drink. A solid 3 stars is about right for this one, although it borders on getting 4 stars.
This is a wonderful rich coffee that both my husband and I both love! We look forward to your other picks!
Joshua & Lizzie
Really nicely balanced. Very drinkable!
The chocolate notes really shine in this smooth coffee.
A hint of floral and citrus notes, finishing earthy and slightly spicy. Fruit notes (orange mainly) come and go from sip to sip.
This was absolutely delicious. Sweet, rich, chocolaty, flavorful.
Great first experience with Mistobox and great first impressions of Onyx Coffee Lab and their batch of Colombia San Antonio. I appreciate the obvious quality. That being said, nutty and smooth aren't my preference. I varied my grind sizes and found that a medium-course grind with a 1:17 brew ratio was my favorite for the creamier mellow notes of the San Antonio.Looking forward to what comes next!
Didn't like the almost bitter/sour aftertaste, the plum taste notes were not appealing to us. Other than that, the coffee was good.
Good coffee but not my favorite. I wish I could say why!! It had a slight bitter taste to it...maybe even a burnt taste.
Clare & Kyle
We loved it, and we rarely agree this intensely on coffee, since he likes dark and I like light roast.
Nicely roasted. Bean doesn't have complex / interesting flavors. Drinkable, but not worth revisiting.
Enjoyed the fruit notes, interested in something a bit lighter for next time!
This wasn't anything special. Bland. Totally drinkable, would not want this again.
I used v60 for most of my brewing of this coffee and I found it to be exceptionally rich and nutty. I thoroughly enjoyed this coffee, however I would like to lean on more fruity/floral, complex and bright coffees. I'm still in a process of figuring out what my preferences are but based on my experience, these characteristics seem to grab my attention.
Typically not a fan of Columbian coffee but this one is really good.. Complex flavor. Onyx always deliver and I am always happy when an Onyx product arrives in the mail
not a very complex coffee, but nice and smooth. I tried it as espresso, pour-over
Not a huge fan of columbian coffee usually, but brewed in a Kalita pour over or Aeropress yielded surprisingly good results.
