This is the Driftless Organic Blend brought to you by Wonderstate Coffee. Simple and straightforward, this Direct Trade coffee is intended to create a rich, balanced profile that is unassuming and approachable. The cup is rich with notes of chocolate and caramel, perfect on its own or with a bit of cream and sugar.
Hi Bailey. We didn't like the sharp smell and thin, papery taste. It was too mild; we like a richer, bolder, dark-roast coffee. Tasting notes (still figuring out the "wheel") we look for are chocolate, dark chocolate and even vanilla. We stay away from the fruity, vegetative coffees (the yellow, green and blue inner part of the wheel), the "Other" flavors, and the nuts and brown spices (10 o'clock position on the wheel). On the positive side - I think right now we're looking for a dark roast in the Honey through Chocolate part of the wheel and welcome your suggestions. Thanks!
A light weight flavor of coffee that is refreshing release from the daily cup of coffee. Minimal acid, slightly on the fine grind for paper filters.
My favorite by far
It has that sweet or caramel aftertaste I can’t describe.
It’s a little weak for me
Dark without being burnt. Made delicious iced mocha lattes. Really nice mouth feel, didn't give me heartburn.
Chocolate and butterscotch flavors meld in a solid body. Smooth. Very good warm and room temp, not good cold.
Rich flavor, rich mouthfeel
This is the best coffee we have had so far!! My husband didn’t think he’d be a fan of anything with toffee or caramel notes, but this coffee quickly rose to the top!
Full Bodied. Rich. Very Good.
Not as smooth as the other coffees I’ve had. Has a more tart taste.
This was so nice, really lovely and mellow with a gentle sweetness. I could definitely call this the platonic ideal coffee.
Seemed run of the mill and lacked body or any interesting qualities.
Good but wasn’t huge on the flavor profile
I goofed up a cup of this coffee today (walked away from a pour over and forgot about it for almost 2 mins before resuming) and it was still delicious.
It was tough on this coffee to strike the right balance. Tried a few different variations - lower water temperature, coarser grinds. With longer brew time, hotter water, this coffee came off very acidic and bitter. The opposite made it too mellow with not much depth.
A little more acidic than I prefer
Bland and weak
Loved this coffee, ground it a bit finer than others, and it was delicious
70g beans with 1 liter of water; brewed in Chemex
Not a bad coffee, but nothing really stands out about it. Similar to mid-grade grocery store coffees.
Delicate taste, not too bitter or tart, soft chocolate notes. Easy to drink, but balanced by not a strong flavor profile.
As soon as I opened this bag I knew I was going to be enjoying a great cup of coffee. It was rich, smooth but full of body. Please put this back in my rotation.
This is a fantastic coffee! We love the sweetness, the caramel notes are very distinct, but it also still has a great “coffee” flavor. Reminds us of the first coffee we ever experienced using a French Press at a friend’s house; the coffee was already ground in an unlabeled container and they couldn’t remember the brand, we’ve been chasing it ever since!
prefer a stronger coffee
I struggle to get this to not taste of dirt
Very balanced and low acidity. I've realized the smoothness and low acidity is probably most important for me!
