With this blend they take a new world approach to a traditional-style espresso. Together these coffees provide rich, full flavors of bittersweet chocolate, spices, apricot and hazelnut.
I liked the roast level! I think that really helped keep away some of the sour notes that I don’t like. I’m still learning to make espresso well so I don’t have a ton to add but the shots I pulled with this bag were much better than what I was using before.
For some reason I'm not picking up on any of the nutty flavors. This one is almost balanced- it leans a little bitter. No off flavors and it makes a decent cup of coffee, but the Tigerwalk Espresso is still my favorite from Equator.
Rich in flavor and balanced just little darker than what i like
A little too much bitterness and that may be because I'm using it in an espresso machine and perhaps the beans are too fresh as it's only about 8 days since it was roasted
Mouthful of rich succulent earthy flavor.
I love the mix of fruit, sour, dark notes
Really liked the chocolate and hazelnut notes, was great for a latte
Was very good strong espresso
Chocolate flavored, taste great!
Way too much of a “burnt” flavor profile
OK for an espresso.
So far one of the best cups of cappuccino I've made on my home setup!
Very smooth, no overwhelming flavors coming from the coffee
I found the espresso strong but rarely bitter. Overall, I enjoyed flavor.
Very dark and rich with the right amount of spices - at first smelled quite acidic but in the taste it was perfectly earthy.
This was very smooth, but the flavor wasn’t memorable.
It was a bit bitter.
too dark for me but otherwise well balanced
Very good - still evaluating.
This coffee starts out with rich hazelnut, until the baking spices and semisweet chocolate linger as it finishes with light apricot. I will be ordering this again
We would rather not get this coffee anymore it is just not as good as the other coffees
Nice medium flavored coffee, but should not be rated as dark roast, definitely medium body
Loved the hazelnut and chocolate tasting notes, and balance was excellent for expresso.
love the richness of this espresso
I ground the beans for use in a French press (as I do every morning) and it was lighter than I thought it would be. The nuttiness was prevalent in the beginning which I usually do not prefer, but it smoothed out and became less bitter. Overall it was a fun coffee to try but I would not choose this one over others.
This did not have the dark, rich taste that I like. The beans were lacking in oil and darkness. Please do not send this again. I could detect non of the flavors mentioned.
Strong apricot finish to espresso, chocolate and spice dominate in latte with slight notes of smoke
This coffee was delicious! It was definitely our favorite so far :) I'm not sure we can pinpoint what it was about it (bc it's not so recent in our minds), but it was very enjoyable. Wouldn't mind repeating it in the future!
Tasty. Enjoy the chocolate notes.
love this one
A little weak but good still. Prefer darker and richer
wonderful, complex flavors. Used for Espresso.
I did enjoy this blend. Not perfect and don't think it's as bold as I expected but good.
Coffee is tasty. Espresso grind was too coarse
Tasty! Smooth and darker than I usually drink but enjoyed it. Would appreciate something a bit more vibrant next
The aroma of the beans is amazing! I was very excited to try it. Unfortunately it is a little too mild. I will keep it and maybe have it cold every once in a while for something light. Otherwise I do not care for it.
My very first bag from MistoBox and blown away from the start. Sweet, rich, bold flavors. Would buy again.
Yummy. Would have liked a little less acidity
Sour notes. Not dark enough.
Too dark a roast for me. Gummed up the espresso maker and was a bit too bitter
Great crema, easy to brew, basically perfect
Very nice, darker and full mouth feel. Excellent in latte, cappuccino and milk based drinks. One of our favorites.
Nice balanced flavor. Crema was OK. Standard grind work well.
A favorite. Rich and really well balanced.
Good strong flavors but I prefer something with a stronger chocolate flavor
The chocolate flavor is perfect
Too dark for our taste. This is probably the darkest roast that i find OK. it is really borderline too dark.
The tasting notes are accurate. Chocolate, hazelnut, and apricot, which comes on the finish. I don't like fruity coffees, but this has just a hint of fruit and is balanced by the deep, dark, richer flavors that I love.
Nice and smooth, really enjoyed the nutty flavor, but it is a bit too bright to my taste..
Too much hazelnut taste.
Rich, smooth, and blends well into my latte
A little too Char-bucks like. 6-7 on a scale of 10.
Prepared as espresso on an expobar brewtus, with 1:2 and 1:3 ratios., Complimented with whole milk (as a cappuccino) very well.
Loved this coffee!
Not bad. Nice espresso good roast. Better than medium complexity. Solid but not outstanding.
We loved this one! Rich, smooth but not too dark.
A great and deep flavor.
Love this one!
This was an amazing espresso. Rich and flavorful
Really great. Full flavored. Delicious black, with cream and on ice
Lovely taste and and the beans truly have a unique smell to them.
Full and very good. Smooth and a strong lasting taste.
So smooth and rich!
Really liked this
Very Good. I prefer no aftertaste, just coffee. Great, though.
Overall, very well balanced. A touch sour for my taste
Drinking a lot of pour over and drip coffee. This coffee is rather bitter. For espresso it is good, but not recommended for pour over.
Good, but maybe would have benefited from more fruit flavors? I'm just getting into making espresso, so I'm still learning!
Different flavors come out with different methods, got more of the hazelnut with a mocha pot and more of the fruitier side with an aeropress. Tasted great black but will also do fine for espresso drinks.
It was more nutty than I like. I’m used to a finer ground up bean and I was looking for more of a smooth finish.
Sold. Perfect balance of chocolate notes and coffee
Jaguar Espresso produces a great crema, but was brighter than I expected. I hope the next one is darker and more roasty.
chocolate flavor and aroma is nice but i prefer something more smoky. this coffee also seems more astringent than i'm used to (which i dislike)
Fruity aroma and rich, roasted flavor at the same time. A top pick at home.
Excellent Espresso. Complex and sweet with little to not acidity or bitterness. The hint of chocolate and fruit flavors is an excellent combination. Will definitely be buying more!
Great flavor, very smooth
kinda bland. not my cup of tea.
Was good as pour over. Better as French Press.
Amazing smell. Not as “thick” as I’m used to.
Tasty and rich! Low in acidity and very smooth.
A little too dark. And too acidic.
Great aroma. Smells absolutely devine. Still adjusting my brew. Seems like it tastes a little more subtle than I was expecting. Am pleasantly surprised. Looking for more dramatic flavorful coffee tastes in the future.
Good, woody, nutty flavor. Expected more fruit and spice from description.
A quick caveat: My wife and I are new to espresso and are just starting to develop a palate. We liked this one. Wasn’t super bitter and tasted bold.
Love it!! Chocolatey and delicious!
Not my favorite. Had some real bitter notes that I didn’t like.
Dark, oily, and reminds me of Starbucks. No idea why I picked this
Update: today my wife asked, “Does that taste like dirt? Because it smells like dirt.”...... yes, yes it does.
Too bitter for my taste
Lots of smoky notes; overall pretty good! Definitely better hot than as cold brew.
This coffee was not up to the standard we expected. We prefer a medium roast and this was a very dark roast.
Decent for espresso but not amazing. Semi-decent crema production.
Excellent coffee beans for Lattes. Perfect balance between being strong yet smooth. Highly recommend!
Delicate yet full bodied. Nice crema not too dark of a roast for espresso. Smells so good.
The beans were slightly oily so they would stick in the bean hopper
This is exactly down my alley
Not our absolute favorate bit still had a very good taste.
Wasn't my favorite...too bitter.
Delicious, lovely balance of flavor
Light, bright, and balanced.
This was more like a 4.5 (if you like a roast darker than medium). I would get this again. A dark roast from Dillanos set the bar for a 5 star.
Equator just makes great coffee!
Couldn’t tell the difference between the two but awesome coffee!!
Pretty tasty, but darker roast than I like
Greatly enjoyed the strong flavors. Finishing it off with a spot of steamed milk balanced it wonderfully.
We have struggled with this one. My first shots were very sour. After using a finer grind (i.e. longer extraction), I got rid of most of the sour, but this has been our least favorite of the coffees so far.
Not one of our all time favorites...
Nice, rich flavor. A bit more acid than I prefer. Works well in my espresso machine.
Very dark and strong coffee. Didn't really pickup on any of those rich flavors
Loved it, would definitely enjoy getting this in rotation again at some point.
This was by far the best coffee I've had from MistoBox. More like this please!
Really nice flavor, great cup of coffee or espresso.
Enjoyed! Definitely in the top 3 of our list (along with Panther from the same company).
Not as good as Good Folks Coffee.
Extremely bitter. The initial taste is slightly richer like bittersweet chocolate, but that richer taste quickly gives way to a less desirable bitterness that is very close to lemon peel in flavor, and that lemon peel bitterness overwhelms the taste buds. This one goes in the trash bin.
I definitely enjoyed this one. Tried this one as cold brew as well and it was pretty smooth.
Good, drinkable dark roast
I enjoy it, nice sutal favor, great aroma
This one was lacking something. Lined it, didn't love it. Flavor wasn't deep enough. Had some nice notes, but something lacking compared to the previous beans (Calombe).
LOVE this -- super dark and rich
Good - like it. Didn't make me cry though.
I found the Jaguar Espresso to have a light bitter sweet taste, low acidity with good mouth feel. I can taste the hints of hazelnut and chocolate tones. Its not as dark an espresso as I like. This is a solid 4 stars with me, I would be proud to serve this to anyone. I utilized this exclusilvely in my DeLonghi espresso machine.
Truly loved this blend. A prefect dark but delicate cup, rich and fragrant.
Dry beans, deep caramel color
French press- vigorous bloom emits a savory aroma
Low/medium acidity and medium mouthfeel
Starts with nutty chocolate and suggestions of citrus
A round, complex cup with a distinctly spicy finish
Nothing special about this coffee, sorry
The brewed coffee is not bitter which is good, however it is not flavorful...like it's watered-down and the flavor is "hiding" (don't know if this makes sense?).
Loved this one! Thank you!
One of my favorites currently.
I really enjoyed this one. It was deep, warm, a full bodied. When I first brewed it, the hazelnut was up front, and as I've tinkered with temps the other flavors takes turns.
This coffee was good. I'm not sure how to describe it. It almost had an herbal quality to it which was new to me.
One of the better espresso's tasted so far in our journey to find that perfect espresso for lattes. It has a nice bold taste and definitely can taste the chocolate overtones. Love the stamping of a roasted on date. So important, but rarely found.
I really enjoy the unique flavors of this espresso blend. Not typically what I would expect, which is awesome! The only real downside I can say is... relatively low caffeine content.
Love it!!! Perfect Balance
This coffee it our favorite so far. It's nice and bold, but has a smooth finish.
Love this one too it's rich creamy taste is what I'm liking about it this morning and I take my coffee black nothing added. Definitely is a eye opener
this tasted richer than the roma espresso blend but also suffered from lack of structure when compared to Nizza - it was not burnt or acidic - inconsistent roast quality when compared to Nizza but an improvement over the roma espresso
This expresso style coffee was not very strong and did elicit the deep rich taste I like with and expresso style coffee. The aftertaste was weak and is lost in the steamed milk for a latter. It is lighter on the acid so a milder coffee taste for me.
Pretty good. Nice, robust flavor.
Rich and dark, nice with cream
I love this coffee it is bold and the favor lingers on my taste buds. It's so good I don't want to brush my teeth after drinking it.
Enjoyed this coffee as a pour-over with milk. I found it to be an enjoyable dark roast!
Could not get it dialed in - overroasted for my taste
Nice smooth flavor - pulls an excellent shot
Hard to pin down whether this rating is correct or not, since as my first mistobox coffee, I don't have anything else to compare it to.Overall: I loved the smell of the whole beans, but I disliked the smell after grinding them.I made drip coffee.Even though I didn't care for the aroma of the ground coffee, I *did* enjoy the flavor. I'd say the aroma of the ground beans reminded me of a light roast, and the brewed coffee tasted great.
Excellent blend of chocolate and coffee notes. Fantastic as espresso
It's nice. It was lighter than I expected, but I did enjoy this coffee
Bland, uninteresting coffee. Roast is medium, flavor dull with mild chocolate notes and not much else. Not worthy of treatment as shot of espresso, but pairs ok with milk giving it some saving grace.
Excellent, dark and bitter just the way I like it
It was good but had a slightly burnt flavor to it. would like to try something a little creamier if that makes sense
These are the best beans I've had in my espresso machine, and its hard to beat my local roaster.
Really good - this is the one we like best so far
Loved it. So easy to drink. Rich and dark, full-bodied. Slightly burnt notes prevent us from rating it 5 stars.
East African coffee strains seemed to dominate this coffee. A bit too bright for my pallet.
This coffee is not as dark as I would have preferred. Typically I drink Starbucks espresso roast.
I enjoyed the flavor and this would make a great dessert espresso. I would prefer a bolder flavor with the rich under tones.
I really like this one based on the 1st cup. It seems nice and strong. I might look for something creamier next time if that makes sense? I will enjoy this for sure this month.
