With flavors reminiscent of chocolate and molasses, this cup is full-bodied with medium acidity, suitable for sipping all day, every day.
Interesting coffee. I enjoyed it. About 1/4 of the beans looked like they were dark roasted (darker, shiny), while the rest looked normal medium roasted. Not sure if so, but that's what it seemed. So, I expected much more complexity. It had solid taste, not much finish.
Too dark, not for me
There was no roasted on date. The blend seemed extremely dark beans (over-roasted) with medium. It doesn’t smell great.

Great as an espresso.
Most of my coffee is made into espresso for lattes but I tried this in my french press tonight and its excellent. I love molasses and this way of brewing works really well. I also made this with gingerbread syrup and it was fantastic.
Good body, but came off slightly sour in the french press no matter what I tried
Pretty good, albeit somewhat unmemorable
Too bitter and flavor wasn’t right for me
This was a little bland.
This coffee was fantastic. I would like to get it again. I loved the flavor!
Lived the packaging most.
It bad. Pretty good. Tasted the molasses at the end...
We got the holiday blend from Colectivo, which we love
meh- didn't taste a lot of nuance, just bitter and didn't taste a lot.
The blend included a little too many dark roast beans. Not my style.
I found this to be a traditional tasting coffee with a hint of sweetness. I enjoyed it.
Great rich flavor of choclate and molasses, good acidity level. Good hot & iced.
The beans were all oily and there were some very dark ones mixed in. Odd blend.
Dark, oily beans mixed with medium roast beans... 2.5 stars

Love it! Smooth & balanced. No bitterness or sharp flavor.
I really enjoyed this one..very smooth but also full of flavor
One of my favorites. It's balanced, well rounded, easy drinking coffee. Good in both the French Press and Aeropress.
Ok, not much personality
Bold flavor was great
Solid, middle of the road coffee.
Meh, not very strong smell or flavor and a bit sour
Didn't care for this blend.
Amazing aroma but just good flavor.
Excellent. Would buy again. Molasses adds a unique flavor profile

A cup of perfection
This was pretty good! Tasty, though I felt like I had to add more beans than normal to get to the full bodied taste. This bag went pretty quickly.
Molasses is accurate. Almost a bit dark fruit esque, maybe some blueberry? This one is good - not too acidic. Definitely a step up from the last few! I still prefer mine to be more nutty and chocolatey than fruity/molasses. Very intersting though.
Favorite so far
I like this coffee's strong flavor. Maybe a little to acidic in the aftertaste (minor complaint) but very close to my perfect coffee.
Does have some chocolate and hint of molasses, this has more flavor that the Schweitzer Mountain just prior to this? Seems full bodied, but fairly smooth and balanced, and I prefer this more than the Scheweitzer Mountain. Nice flavors, but not a 5.
First impression is the coffee smelled and tastes a lot better than what I was drinking.
I liked the roast level - medium style coffee.
Flavors - I think I'd prefer more fruity and citrus than chocolate and earthy
Coffee Characteristics - I generally really like a smooth balanced coffee that isn't sour
Really smooth finish, with a nice overall sweetness. I typically don't drink coffee black, but this one is perfectly good sipping without cream and sugar.
Solid coffee with hints of chocolate. I can't taste the molasses but the full-body really helps.
This was one of the best ever. Very smooth flavors of chocolate. Loved it and would order again.
