This coffee will be fresh roasted for you. We expect Higher Grounds Coffee will roast and ship this coffee in 1-2 business days depending on their roasting schedule.
This is the Bolivia Caranavi brought to you by Higher Grounds Coffee. This Organic and Fair Trade certified coffee was sourced from the growing region of Caranavi Province in Bolivia and was produced by the Union Pro-Agro, AIPEP, and Mejillones cooperatives between 1,000 - 1,750 meters. A true medium roast with tasting notes of cocoa and hazelnut, this coffee is rich and comforting.
Updating my review from below and adding a star for freshness. Turned out Mistobox reached out about the roast date and I just misread the date as annotated on the package. My mistake!
too much nut my friend
Good coffee but just not enjoying a full cup to my expectations
Made cold brew and pour over with these beans and both are quite enjoyable. The syrupy mouthfeel, especially pronounced in the cold brew, is a strange yet interesting experience for me. A bit darker for my liking.
Three stars is being polite in taking into account that this verges on being a dark roast (how was this recommended when my preferences were set to light-medium roast?)
It's not terrible. Not picking up the tasting notes (which I rarely ever do with a darker roast). This actually doesn't appear to be heavily roasted upon looking at the beans though. Still a little lost on why this was sent out on Mistobox' end. Also was not fresh upon receipt. My first bag was three days off roast, this bag was three weeks off. I imagine we missed the peak age on this one.
Too bitter when brewed - do not enjoy dark roasts, and this is darker than I enjoy.
It’s better than most, smooth taste, not too overwhelming
ben liked a tad more than lauren but basically a 3 start
It was an all around good coffee; did fairly well in a french press, made a decent espresso. I could not quite get hazelnut notes, but it was a tasty cup.
A bit too dark
Brewed with V60 and AeroPress. Not was chocolatey as I was hopping for. Overall, quite pleasant.
This coffee had some really nice notes of cocoa with a full body. It wasn't necessarily aromatic, but it was comforting and low in acidity. I don't think I would consider this one a favorite as it just wasn't as exciting as I hoped it would be, but if you are looking for a coffee that goes great with cream and sugar, this one is it!
The coffee was not bad but it was not fresh. My Breville Barista Express is not even getting pressure. I adjusted for finer grind and went up to 19g and still no pressure. Compared to Onyx, Axum and ... I hate to say it but the Starbucks beans (lol) they kept good pressure and made great coffee.
delicious coffee, smooth
Loved. Def a fan of the nutty vibes and gave a deep thick brew.
Nothing spectacular, but made a good cup.
This is the type of coffee I'm looking for from Mistobox. The flavors come through strongly when brewed properly, and I enjoy the first sip as much as the last sip. It's chocolatey and rich, just like the profile says. When I'm looking for a chocolatey coffee, this is what I'm hoping for. Brewed with v60 and Encore grinder.
An impressive coffee that was roasted about four days before I received it. I tend to prefer a much darker roast but this was very good.
too bitter for my taste
Very yummy and smooth! Really liked this one.
Great flavors up front that evolve in an enjoyable way. The finishing taste isn't my favorite, but not terrible.
The aroma was good but couldn't extract a good espresso out of it. I would rather something richer in taste and smokier.
Loved how rich and chocolately this was. Possibly the best one yet!
did not like this one
I think this is a well balanced coffee. The chocolate and nutty flavors came through, and I'm enjoying it each morning. It's not too dark and has some unique flavors to it. I brewed this using my drip maker + a burr grinder set to medium-fine.
Really enjoyed this one. Really smooth and aeromatic.
We preferred the previous batch (Morning Sun) compared with Bolivia Caranavi. Bolivia is a bit too rich/dark for us. We prefer a medium roast and are looking fwd to trying the next product batch which is medium/light to see how it compares.
This is our least favorite of the MistoBox shipments so far - just didn't prefer the more single-note chocolatey flavors.
Slightly darker, which I liked, with a noticeable cocoa taste. I like this one!
it's "ok" nothing memorable or exciting here
Very nice, very rich
A bit darker than I usually like it, but still good.
Lacked complexity, flavor is too mellow. Not good either on V60 pour over or espresso.
To dark of roast
Balanced, smooth, and not too heavy. Strong cocoa notes and not much else but still delicious.
Very nice taste! Smooth and not too nutty.
It was okay. It seemed to have some spice in it that I did not care for but overall it was not terrible, just not for me.
Not good! Please never send this again.
Was good. A little acidic for my tastes
Extremely flavorful and the perfect flavors to match my palate. It appears y'all give me a better option every time so keep em coming
Perfect for the summer Caribbean heat.
Flavors not strong enough. Would like a deeper flavor.
Very rich, but great acidity balance.
Bitter. Roast too Dark.
Roast was much lighter than expected, I would not consider the flavor to be rich as described. Overall not a bad coffee, just light on flavor.
This tasted like a true medium roast: smooth with some acidity. Chocolate and caramel notes were evident. We both enjoyed this one.
Darker tones, nutty flavor does shine through. would prefer slightly lighter roast
Excellent! We normally like light and medium roasts so we were hesitant, but the smoothness of the beans and freshness was amazing. Keep 'em coming!
Excellent. Incredibly Rich Coffee
I liked the flavor on this, as my first time having freshly roasted coffee. I used no sugar, but still added some french vanilla creamer (for reference I usually add 2-3 spoons of sugar). Rated 4/5 because I have nothing to compare it to besides preground supermarket coffee. One day I dream of drinking coffee with nothing added. I'm not there yet.
Did not like the one. It smelled not very fresh and as if it had been over roasted. I brewed a cup on my Chem ex and the taste confirmed the smell. I ended up throwing the bag away. Would like a refund or another bag sent in it's place please.
This a great tasting coffee. The Nutty flavor really comes through and provides a very pleasing after taste.
fabulous! One of the best I have had
Fine. Doesn't really stand out from the rest of the collection.
Excellent roast! I cant decide if it's better as an espresso or pour over but both are satisfying!
Love this coffee!
Smooth, rich, mellow chocolate/cocoa notes. Not bitter, not acidic, and nutty notes are a nice 'hint' of flavor without being overpowering. Very good body, as well. I like this!
I have really liked all the Higher Grounds coffee so far - that and the Parisi have been the best
very rich taste without be too strong. Smooth finish
Good but not ash full bodied as I like, but good flavor profile
Didn’t like the flavor and it was too acidic and mild.
Pretty smooth coffee with some nice nutty notes. A bit weak tasting, however.
Good cup! Once I made the grind a bit coarser than usual, the taste really came out.
Hazlenut came through very distinctly. Really good, not too bitter. One of my favorites.
I don't know what it is, but no matter what I do, this coffee tastes overly bitter. I don't taste any of the flavor notes that are listed. I would not want this coffee again.
