The Desert City Dark was blended and roasted for you by Cartel Roasting Co. This blend is a 3 to 2 ratio of Brazil Morada dos Passaros Natural and Guatemala Chichupac Washed. Enjoy this bold offering on any brewing method for rich flavors of dark chocolate and macadamia nut.
Absolutely loved this coffee! Bold and notes of vanilla, coffee, pine, roasted hazelnuts. Coarse grind was the best.
Good but a bit nutty for our tastes.
Nothing much to say. Just a regular dark roast that you can get anywhere. Avoid if you want something extraordinary. Brewed it as espresso 18 gr in, 25 gr out, 25 sec.
A solid pick. Not disappointing at all. Maybe not my favorite coffee ever, but certainly good.
A little too much chocolate for me personally, but smooth.
A little too much chocolate for me personally, but smooth.
Best bag so far. Insanely smooth, great mocha taste
Really good! Chocolate
Great! I think this is my favorite so far.
a little bitter for my taste
Chocolatey for sure but not much body or richness.
So far okay - nothing great, but also very palatable
Repost: Nice dark roast, but lacked subtlety. Missing nuanced flavor undertones. Fine but boring.
Well-balanced coffee, very nutty overall with a nice hint of sweetness. Definitely a little lighter in taste than anticipated, but we like very dark roasts. A good cup!
please don’t send this again- so weak
Rich and full-bodied. We loved this coffee!
Like the chocolate notes in this.

Liked this one a lot. We typically prefer medium roasts, but really enjoyed this dark roast because of its richness.
This is by far the best coffee have had so far! It was very bold and full bodied and that’s what I’m looking for.
Loved this one - chocolate and nut notes really came through. Each cup was rich and smooth. Taste and smell did not disappoint. Definitely one of my favorites.
Liked this one a lot! Full bodied and foamy espresso. Not as dark as I expected but very balanced taste.
I'm finally getting to this bag and I do not prefer dark roasts. I specifically listed only Light and Medium roasts. Is there a way to get a refund as I have been sent two bags now of dark roasts (this and the latest - which I have not opened). Thanks.
I think this is my favorite so far. Makes great espresso and latte with my Rancilio Silvia machine. Those were so good I didn't get around to trying it with other brewing methods.
The beans smell delicious and it is delightful iced black. I’m kind of surprised and how much I like this one. This is my favorite in a while.
Used as espresso. Very good.
Ok, not a favorite
Not very flavorful, kind of weak. But not offensive.
We love this nutty, rich coffee. It's perfect black or with creamer.
Loved the balance of full-bodied and smooth. My favorite one so far!
This was very good, but the Bixby bestpresso was better in my opinion.
I got the best flavor out of this one through a moka pot. It's a little smoky, bold, and not bright. The flavors are a little less consistent (even when measuring water and bean weights) in drip and French press, like somehow the flavor isn't fully realized.
Espresso beans only please!!!
Would definitely order again.
Good for iced americano
Nice change of pace from the medium roast I usually get.
It was really excellent. Please send it to us again and other coffee like this one
Too dark for my taste
Love this brand
Excellent roast with the perfect blend of beans.
This one was great. I loved the dark chocolate and full bodied flavor.
Great medium dark roast! The macadamia nut notes really come through.
This was one of our favorites by far! Absolutely delicious
Great well-rounded coffee.
one of my fav's
Very smooth, delicious!
Sooooo much chocolate. Solid coffee.
Brewed in the Ratio 8 coffee maker. 55g beans, medium grind (24/40 - Baratza Encore). 1.2L of water.
Solid but somewhat lacking in complexity
we loved this one!
It’s okay, not great, not bad. Wish it had more body. Pretty watery and light on flavor.
Chocolate notes are good, macadamia nut notes are slightly burnt
This was absolutely perfect!
Loved this one. Nice rich flavor, and the aroma of the beans in the bag was remarkable.
Not my favorite
Enjoyed this a lot!
French press, +9 grind, slightly under boiling
I loved this one! The nutty taste was really good and it was way to drink.
liked this one fine but it didn't stand out to me, especially in comparison to the previous one (passion house's night moves) which I loved so much.
Wonderful roasted flavor with a slightly bitter dark chocolate finish. By far the best coffee we have received to date for our tastes.
3 month Update: Still top on our list and has become a regular part of our shipment rotation.
I made it with the same amount of coffee/water I normally do and this just had no flavor. It was bizarre. Drinkable, but tasted like almost nothing.
Darker than I like
Loved it. Bold and rich with almost no acidity - just the way I like it.
Burnt taste. Do not send again.
The roast was okay, but it was a bit too strong. I couldn’t taste the other flavors.
I absolutely love this one! I tried a few different recipes (always drinking as a cappuccino with ~5oz of oatmilk). The traditional 1:2 (i.e: 16gr in, 32gr out) ratio is my favorite and results in a bold yet very smooth and a little chocolaty cappuccino.
If the ratio is kept lower (i.e 1:1.5) you get a light, super-chocolaty drink.
I personally find this coffee the best one I got from MistoBox
I really enjoyed this coffee. The mix of macadamia and chocolate notes made for a perfect fall cup of coffee
This one is a winner with both drinkers -- nice bold flavor that almost becomes smoky with half and half
Fantastic. Soft continuous flavor. Not too bitter. Strong aroma.
I liked it more than Kristina. Small stone in bag.
Couldn't taste too much difference out of it. But it was good.
Great taste. Smooth drink. Would get again.
So good! Best one yet and I've been a Mistobox member for years.
This coffee is not bad. It's mild and I didn't taste any bitterness. It just didn't stand out to me.
Little acid, but good
This is my favorite one so far
Love it! Delicious flavor.
This is the exact type of coffee i think of when i think i don't like dark, bitter coffee. Not for me.
I have mixed feelings on this one. This is a really good, balanced, easy drinker. I’d say I’m “neutral” on this roast. There’s not really anything that stands out about it. But I wouldn’t necessarily call that a bad thing. Not disappointed by any means. I like these darker roasts that are on the lighter side of dark. You get the good toasty flavors without the burnt/bitter aftertaste. I would probably purchase this again.
Amazing taste and flavor. Did it with pour over and really took the time to let the water absorb all the coffee flavors. The most recent brew I did, I almost thought I was drinking a chocolate bar.
Notes were bitter even with water/ground ratio adjustment.
I liked the nutty flavor
Very nice flavor
It was just okay. Nothing -- good or bad -- particularly stood out to me.
Loved this coffee, dark & flavorful without being too heavy!
Too nutty for me
This is one of the best coffees that I have had. Bold flavor. Easy to grind.
Wanting something similar to that very first bag with a hazelnut finish.
A little too dark for my daily use
So good and scrumptious!!!
This was a good coffee. It was slightly darker than my preference, but it was neither bitter nor acidic which was good.
Excellent coffee taste.
Nothing to write home about. I felt like this brew left me feeling full after having my normal morning cup. Had an odd back end when paired with my creamer.
Very good coffee I would buy again
I was surprised. From the description, I thought this roast might be too dark for me; however, it is excellent for lattes!
I do not like this coffee. It is bitter and bland. We LOVED Passion House and would like something that tastes closer to that.
Best coffee I’ve received so far
The combination of tasting notes of chocolate, macadamia, and full bold taste suites me very well- really enjoy to start the day with this.
Nice bold and no sour
We like this coffee, it is brewing well in our cemex. It is smooth but rich and has good flavor.
This coffee was good, but it was a little bitter for my liking. I could definitely feel the caffeine though!
great chocolate notes
Decent dark roast. Not much to it, kind of boring. But that's not always bad. It is what is says it is.
Not a fan of the taste. Sorry. Tastes burned
This coffee was excellent. More like this please. Super great.
Loved this one!
Solid. Nutty and full bodied. Gotta get a good extraction to get a good full amount of flavor.
Nice mix of Chocolate and Nuttiness
Excellent balance of traditional coffee flavors with some nice sweetness to make it interesting.
This was so good! Great flavor and didn't get bitter.
We love this one. Dark, but the light roasting gave it a good balance for our tastes.
Wonderful coffee! This is helping me articulate the notes I like best: nuts, chocolate in a full bodied coffee.
Wasn’t a fan of this one. The medium/dark bean blends tend to have too much of that sour taste I’m not into. Also, the roasted beans have very little oil on them, which is usually a sign the beans haven’t been roasted quite enough for my preference. Also, this one was kind of dull all around, making it unusual but not great. Wouldn’t get this coffee again.
I can taste the chocolate! Without bitterness or acidity. Excellent. No static
Seemed weak in flavor. Found I needed to add extra scoops to get a more full bodied taste. Didn’t really get the ‘flavor’ notes either
