This is our 23rd coffee package from Mistobox. At this point my husband and I have a much better idea of what flavor palate we are looking for. We enjoy the light to medium roast that are a bit on the fruity side. This coffee is more on the earthy tasting side and we definitely taste the “bourbon” & “black tea” aspect. The smokey flavors come out more in the french press. It made a better coffee with the pour over revealing its earthy barrel characteristics. If chilled it has a similar taste to tea. Neither of us enjoyed it as drip coffee. Nonetheless, our guest enjoyed his drip coffee.
Roast date was within one week. Great light roast, made wonderful espresso and pour over.
Lots of strong flavor. Best comparison is wild berry tea. Roast is light and complimentary. Very pleasant.
This was a little TOO complex for me. I certainly tasted all of the notes: black tea, boysenberry, even graham cracker. I just didn't enjoy that combination of flavors. I would have liked more berry and less tea.
