This is the House Blend brought to you by Populace Coffee. The House Blend features high quality fully washed coffees from Colombia and Guatemala. This combination of coffees create a unique harmony of flavors that represent comfort and familiarity in coffee. This blend is a sweet, balanced, rich cup with notes of milk chocolate and roasted nuts.
Tasting notes were spot on, and enjoyed the new experience. However, not a fan of the fruit forward cherry notes. I like the milk chocolate on the back end. Prefer more balanced than fruity or acidic profiles for mostly espresso drinking.
I liked the deeper notes that it has compared to the 8oclock coffee I have been drinking. Thanks!
The coffee was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. I'm interested in something with more flavor.
Good but not outstanding. Prefer slightly richer flavors.
A little bland. I probably prefer a little darker. A bit spicier than I like.
A bit too bitter for our liking.
Dark chocolate Cherry.
A little lightly tasting for our tastes. I did enjoy the under tones of flavors though.
This was exactly as described. It came off smooth, roasty, and chocolatey. Made a great drip and even espresso.
This coffee is delicious! Finding it to be more flavorful at slightly lower temperatures, either waiting for it to cool a tad bit after a chemex brew, or straight out of my AeroPress.
Really nice taste. Very smooth! Perfect choice for me :)
I don't know much about coffee yet, but this made a great tasting cup of v60 pour over.
It's a good coffee, but I'm only getting the bittersweet chocolate notes, nothing else.
While overall, I would rate this one good, there was an aftertaste that felt off (a bit sour) and kept taking me out of the drinking experience. Also, the smell of the beans, both unground and ground, wasn't a typical coffee smell and was unpleasant at times. Again, these aspects didn't ruin my whole experience and I did think the brew was smooth with hints of chocolate. It was a nice rest stop off my usual coffee trail, but I'm not sure I would choose this one again for a long haul coffee.
Too acidic and fruity for my liking
I liked this coffee, it was a little on the sweet side, a little on the weak side, but the flavor overall was good.
Was just ok. Slightly weak tasting. Not a lot of flavor.
Enjoyed the hint of chocolate.
I did not care for this coffee. It is very mediocre. I will not buy this again.
Flavor developed ok from start to finish, but the end seemed to be a bit more drastic than the start. I guess you can say the middle notes did not help the transition of the top notes blend well with the body of the coffee.
Not really what I expected. Need more a dark French Roast.
Too acidic and bright.
Populace was good but I prefer a bit more robust roast. This was a bit on the brighter side of the flavor spectrum.
I think there was a little too much cherry with this one vs. being a little more chocolatey. Not bad but also not my favorite.
Nice bright cherry fruit and good balance but on the lighter side. Just a little too bright and thin for our everyday taste. Brewed with clever (hard to dial in) and french press (helped with body).
We thought it was a bit to mild. Like a richer favor
We liked it! I think it was a little on the light side.
We loved the smooth drinkability of this coffee. Was best prepared in our aero press rather than stovetop percolator. Great intro coffee to mistobox.
Loved this coffee!!
Had a nice cherry and chocolate aftertaste. I like the after notes to have stronger nutty flavor, like a hazelnut does.
This was a bit too fruity and sour for our taste.
exactly what i was looking for
Delicious! Pretty much spot on with what I like.
It's so good! Very light and I love the flavors
Enjoyed this house blend roast. Very smooth, no after bitter taste. I’d reorder this blend
I like how rich this coffee tastes! I definitely get the dark chocolate notes too.
Good chocolate notes
Nice and clean flavor, with a hint of citrus and a bold taste
I loved the deep, rich flavor of this blend.
Good choice for a first MistoBox purchase. We felt comforted by the familiar coffee flavors.
Overall a good cup of coffee. Nothing really stood out.
Great profile smooth non bitter
This coffee was wonderfully fragrant on the first cup with tangy floral notes. It had a lighter flavor than what I prefer and required a courser grind than usual for my pour over. Definitely a higher quality coffee, however, I prefer a bolder taste. Probably better with other forms of brewing coffee.
I like the chocolate and nut flavors. It is smooth and clean. Just a touch more acid than I like, but I am usually a dark roast drinker trying to expand my palate, so that's to be expected.
It tastes almost sour. This is what I generally get from coffees from Central and South America.
The first coffee that I thought was incredibly delicious was Kenya AA. I used to regularly go to a local coffee shop that brewed different single-origin coffees daily, and I found that the ones that I loved were all from Africa and the Asia-Pacific area: Kenya, Uganda,
This was a very solid first option. It was bright and complex, but I would say that it was distinctive in any of those flavor profiles mentioned. More like very solid.
Very smooth. Tasted wonderful, smelled just as good.
I really enjoyed this coffee. I was a little skeptical when I saw that it was a medium-light roast, but it is very smooth and has great flavor.
I really liked this. It was a little rich/bitter at first but overall it’s a really good coffee. I can taste that it’s quality- nothing like Folgers. And smells amazing. Thanks!
Really great flavor, actually got some fruity (maybe cherry?)-like notes in it also
Definitely could taste the chocolate! Get more dark than milk chocolate. Very good.
Great smooth flavor. No acid and taste.
We enjoyed this coffee a lot! Brewed it in a Chemex and it had a great aroma. Workhorse coffee pot also got a nice flavor out of it. This was our first mistobox coffee as we are re-developing our coffee palates. Great start!
We are enjoying it a lot
Was just ok. Did not like the chocolate note
Not a fan of this coffee. Not a cherry fan either.
It just good, not much character to it
Great flavor. Wish it was a little bit stronger coffee.
Tasted very fruity/sweet and we did not like it. Flavor was too overpowering. Probably will not finish this bag.
Amazing taste! Our favorite so far!
A nice, smooth, enjoyable coffee. Really picked up on the milk chocolate notes and found the lighter roast refreshing.
I liked this coffee, though it had a lingering sharpness to me.
Rich mellow flavor great breakfast coffee!!!
Really good every day drinker.
Was not a great fit for me, very light
Great flavor, but a little mild side for my usual brewing method (aeropress). I was able to get a little more out of it by changing the grind and using a Kalita Wave.
Literally threw most of it away. Tasted very odd, not like chocolate at all. Really have never had a coffee like this.
Would like to try a more full bodied coffee. This one was fruity but not really remarkable otherwise.
This coffee did not meet our flavor preferences. Too many green flavors. This is our least favorite of all coffees we have received and we did not finish the bag.
First order nothing to compare with but little too light for my preference.
Not as rich/deep or chocolatey as I'd expected. A bit more acidic than I prefer. Cherry notes but otherwise I didn't find it particularly distinctive.
It was a good blend, but I like a stronger taste in the blends. I couldn’t taste the blend that much.
Bland, burnt, meh.
Was a good coffee. I did not enjoy my first few cups; however, I began to appreciate the subtle notes of citrus and caramel the more I drank. I would like to experiment with this type of roast more.
I liked this one a lot!
Lighter than I am use to but good. 1st mistobox so have nothing else to compare it against so I can only give it 3 stars. Chocolate & nut flavors were present and delicious at the start of each cup, but disappeared into a normal average tasting coffee for the last two thirds.
Too weak. Not rich enough.
Too acidic for me.
Hit all the notes I was looking for, exactly what I want in a morning cup.
Over all good. the only down side was it was a little light for me.
This had something of a sour note that I didn't particularly like. There were a ton of papery flakes in the grind. It wasn't bad but I wouldn't get it again.
I want to preface this review by saying I prefer medium to dark. I was expecting a medium roast, not a medium-light (more on the light side). However, this is still a very tasty coffee. Definitely a little nutty. Not bitter. Slightly sour and "bright". I bet it would be amazing made in a Chemex. I used an automatic drip, which IMHO does not do lighter roasts justice. Back to my previous point, still a tasty coffee. Just not my jam. Shout out to Bay City!
Good traditional coffee profile, but nothing that makes it super unique.
A little sour tasting. It got better with a coarser grind
Not as rich as I expected. Made with a Hario V60 at a 1:16 ratio. Did taste the rosted nuts.
Very nice, rich, smooth cup of coffee! Really enjoyed this one.
I would prefer something fuller bodied.
Enjoyed the coffee. That said, it seemed a little light would like something a little darker.
If you like a nice, gentle, chocolately wake-up coffee, this is an excellent choice. A tasty way to ease into the day.
I am a long time Dunkin Donuts medium roast original blend coffee drinker and I'm just now exploring other coffees. I brew my coffee a little on the strong side. For my taste, this coffee was a bit light. My wife preferred Populace House Blend over my usual strong brew of Dunkin Donuts. Next I'm going to try something described as bold.
Slightly fruity, smooth finish
Sadly, was not a fan of this brew. It was quite sweet and I guess I've discovered that the sweet flavor is not one I enjoy. That's the nice thing about this service - trying new coffees and experiencing different flavor profiles.
I really liked this one! Its a good rich flavor.
Smooth but tasted very syrup-y. I prefer the medium to darker blends.
great full-bodied, rich flavor
The nose is unimpressive and flat, would prefer something more aromatic. The taste and aftertaste are enjoyable though.
Lightly roasted very dense beans. Awesome flavor. Full bodied. Delicious as straight espresso. Thank you.
Smooth and chocolatey. I made a cold brew with it that is great.
I think this coffee is described perfectly. I would drink this coffee again and again. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because there are other coffees that I like more, including a different roast by the same company. However, after this is my second roast from Populace, I’m starting to feel like they might not make any bad coffee. I will continue to look for more and more roasts buy them.
This is the best coffee I've received via Mistobox in the last year, and would happy to see it again.
Really enjoyed this one. Tasting notes were as described, and the coffee was excellent.
Tasted burnt and smokey, like wood.
This is most favorite so far!
More like this one would be great
Low acidity, mildly sweet, not too rich. Love this blend!
Tasted like water no matter how much I tinkered with the grind size and ground to water ratio.
Nice balance but I prefer the flavors a little more pronounced and strong
Light, balanced cup. Similar to previous blend. I'd like to try something darker.
Love these beans! Full of dark chocolately flavor - really enjoyable cup of coffee each morning. Love that the flavor is bold and round without being overly acidic.
