Fantastic overall not too acidic but just a nice unique mouthfeel and complexity
Roasted on 04/08 and delivered on 04/11. Currently brewing using a v60 and a Porlex mini grinder. In general, I'm of the opinion that you really can't go wrong with Ethiopian beans for making pour over coffee, so settled on the Kuma Ethiopia Guji as my first coffee from Mistobox.
I wasn't really blown away on first impression, but wanted to reserve judgement as I was trying the coffee three days off roast. I wouldn't say it was terrible, but it was slightly more two dimensional or muted in terms of complexity than I'd normally expect from an Ethiopian.
It's been five days since roast and am now getting more of a developed and rounded flavor profile. Definitely a bit more of a syrupy/molassas flavor. Get a solid note of black tea on the front end with a bit of a lemon zest after taste. Overall, has developed into a much more complex tasting cup than first impression.
Note that Mistobox rates 3 stars as 'OK' whereas I tend to view a three star rating as a good rating. As a reference, some of my all time favorite coffees are a Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi and Yemen Haraaz-Red Marqaha.
Not great. Adjusted the grind, couldn’t get a great flavor out of it.
Very Good Espresso. Light Ethiopiany

Floral and citrus
One of my favorite. Syrupy sweetness. Balanced with a complex level of flavors of earl grey tea, lemon, berries, tropical fruit, etc.
Light with a zesty floral scent and a slight lemon flavor. This tastes like no coffee I've ever had and it's absolutely a good thing. I can't stop drinking it.
