Fantastic roast with a fruity and nutty spirit. Absolutely loved this.
We have two local roasters that produce beans heads and shoulders above these from Atlanta. Disappointing in flavor and richness for dark roasted coffee beans. Nice, convenient bag though.
I like it, it is bold and rich tasting.I use a percolator to brew my coffee. I use a 1 1/2 tablespoon coffee scoop and put one scoop per 8 ounces of water.
I start out with cold water so that it perks longer.
Taste was too mild and weak
So good I ordered a 5 pound bag! And when my bother (who lives about 10 minutes away - I'm in South FL) told me y'all where the ones at Catalyst back in the day I am a big fan.
Rich, full flavor with low acidity and no bitterness.
I like the taste, but I'm struggling with my brew basket overflowing. Maybe I'm using too much coffee, or maybe the grind is too fine. I'll try measuring by weight to see if it works better than me just eyeballing it. We always make a full 12 cup pot too, so that exacerbates the issue.
A bit darker roast than what I normally like. Pretty smooth for a darker roast, but not my favorite.
I have had one cup of this coffee, made with a burr grinder set to "fine" and an Aeropress coffee press. I need to have a second cup to taste if there are any nutty tones, but I can verify that there are definite chocolate notes and it is rich but not bitter.
Great for drip coffee
Would rate 6/5 if I could.
Loved this coffee. Rich flavorful great notes of chocolate. Every Alma coffee I have gotten has been wonderful !
We brewed it French press style. My wife loved it (she’s a cream and sugar adder) and I loved it too (I’m a no adding anything guy) . . . Except on weekends, I gotta throw in some Baileys! After all, you can’t drink all day if you don’t start first thing in the morning!!
My second best choice of coffee!
This one stands out - very flavorful and balanced.
Very simple, very clean. Almost like water when cold, needs cream and sugar to bring out the coffeeness.
Off taste. Did not like.
Excellent coffee, grinds clean
Really good. Brewed using a Chemex
Dark roast was nice for a change but like med roast more
Nice. Smooth, balanced. A little fruity for me, but overall very good.
well balanced flavor
It was really good! Great without milk and just a splash of creamer.
Amazing! The flavor is exceptional
very dark and rich, too much for us but i'm sure someone likes it
The coffee was smooth and generally not bitter, and it created a great cup of expresso.
Yum! Smooth and delicious. Could drink this every day. Held up well to my heavy splash of cream.
Really liked how smooth it was. Could have been a bit stronger in flavor. Tasty
not much flavor, not memorable.
Combination of earthy, woody, and smoky notes is too much for my taste. All three together is overpowering.
smooth and rich bodt with great aroma
Really enjoyed this one. One of our favorites so far.
I liked the flavor of this coffee, it was not to acidic/fruity and tasted balanced to me. My only critique is that it was a little mellow, but that could have been the way I was brewing it.
My husband’s all-time favorite!
it tastes good but i was looking for something different. maybe a little bit sweeter + maybe try something not as dark.
The packaging was intesely cool and was designed amazingly. The coffee itself was good, but was less bold than expected. The flavor combination was very good as well.
Wonderfully full body and well balanced. Very clean in both aroma and fragrance and no strong aftertaste. I could taste the hints of dark chocolate and nutty.
However, my tastes lean more to the medium roast, chocolate, and fruity (ex. cherry or coconut). I have updated my preferences to reflect these changes.
One of the best! Can get enough each morning!
Very smooth and silky. Smell of XO sauce and dark chocolate. Taste of molasses, creamy dark cocoa. Aftertaste of savory nuts. Yet not enough of a punch for me!
One of the best I've had
This isn't bad but I don't like dark roasted coffee!
Very good flavor
Great cup of coffee and not bitter.
One of the best espresso cups I managed to brew! very balanced and full-bodied taste, no sourness in the last sip, thick and foamy texture, good aroma.
Good. Great flavor, not bitter. Enjoyed very much. Would enjoy a stronger flavor coffee though.
Surprisingly good; I don't generally like darker roast coffees but this one made a great classic espresso profile.
Excellent, well balanced and not acidic.
Not much depth of flavor
This was great, exactly what we like.
Very good coffee. Still just a touch too light of a roast.
Very smooth rich flavor
This was a really solid coffee for me. The flavor was bold and acidic but I had a hard time picking up the identified flavor notes.
I like the chocolate notes and how dark the coffee is.
It was alright. I think I like milk chocolate flavor notes much more than dark chocolate ones.
Exceptional. As described. Phenomenally roasted. Quick delivery.
Its just ok. A little bland. Nothing interesting in the notes but it's not a bad coffee.
Good flavor, just a teeny bit acidic but better than the bird rock blend.
Would definitely enjoy again!
it was too dry (don't know how else to explain it).
the smell when opening the bag is amazing
It is good. Defiantly get a chocolatey vibe. I think I want to try a more rich and full bodied coffee next. Sort of in between Medium and Dark.
Super loved this one! Rich, toasty, chocolatey, nutty
*Really* good coffee!
We really enjoyed this one, nice and dark but still flavorful
Good. I wouldn't mind having something even bolder than this.
I've received 5 coffees so far and this has been my favorite. Bonus for me, they are near my hometown!
This is a good coffee, nothing negative to say about it! I really like the story of the company Alma. After this I would like to start drifting towards Medium Roasts than just Darks.
Darker than we normally like, but we would drink this one again
I really enjoyed this coffee. I specifically liked noting the specific varieties exclusive to Honduras (Lempira and IHCAFE90). This was a nice, smooth cup. Not an oily dark roast (as I often am drawn to) but balanced and delicious with enough mouthfeel that I know I am drinking coffee.
Loved this coffee. It was smooth and had deep flavors. Little acid. A delicious cup of coffee.
This was a very pleasant coffee, I was a big fan.
Even flavor, not strong but full body that holds up start to finish.
Yes! Love it!
Very bad, dark bitter and unpleasant
Loved the dark and nutty profile. Excellent crema.
Smell and taste is so good for me
I did not like the flavor.
For me just go with a roast dark coffee.
No added flavor, please
Very tasty - a little on the lighter side of dark roast but full of wonderful flavors and complexity.
After trying 6 different coffees from Mistobox this was by far my favorite. It is so balanced and smooth, rich and full bodied. I would wake up exited to have a cup- which speaks to how good it is. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed this dark roast. There are no notes of burned, charred, etc. The "dark" comes more from the flavors themselves -- rich, full-bodied flavor notes.
Flavor had too much chocolate taste
Just OK. Had a bitterness and a weirdness to it?
Quite tasty as a cold brew with a splash of cream.
It wasn’t bold enough for me.
Delicious dark roast! Can taste a hint of the chocolate and molasses notes, but not overpowering. Would definitely purchase again.
One of my favorites yet!
Really good, both aromatically and when used for French press. Another favorite!
Really flavorful and pretty mellow. Would make a nice afternoon coffee.
Best one I've received yet!
It was good, but I think we like coffee a little stronger. The flavor wasn’t as bold as we like I think.
please do not send this one again
we found it a bit bitter and unbalanced
I thought this strong, full flavored coffee was a good one- it tasted good black and with a splash of cream.
i think it's a little too dark for my taste, almost has that burnt/oily quality
This coffee was very fresh, but as dark coffee lovers we found it not as strong as we like. We found the aroma rather weak.
so so, preferred the verve
This coffee was very acidic to me and reminded me more of tea when I had it black. With milk it was fine.
Not bad, lighter roast and taste than I usually get. Would prefer richer taste with similar flavors if possible?
Not a lot of flavor, a little too weak for my taste.
This is a good coffee. If you like iced coffee/espresso, the flavor notes change significantly when cold. Warm or cold, it’s a solid coffee all around.
This was good- I felt like I couldn't get the proportions correct.
Pleasant, mild, light, this coffee is polite. Something I would serve to guests staying over who like a mild-mannered coffee. Me personally I like loud, in your face toastiness, roastiness, boldness, richness, and this coffee is too tame to meet my personal preference. I wouldn't call this a dark roast at all, I would hesitate to call it a medium roast. For what it is, it's very nice and mild; there are no off notes or off flavors, just not my cup of joe personally.
This was a good low acidity coffee. Very strait forward coffee flavor with mild notes of chocolate which I like. I prepared this with my chemex and enjoyed it.
Not a dark enough roast for our tastes. Not rich enough. Good medium roast. Love the packaging, though.
I enjoyed this coffee, though not as much as the Klatch rainforest blend.
This is phenomenal coffee! Not bitter at all. Very smooth
Smooth and Rich
a little dark for our taste but a good quality coffee.
We enjoyed it, definitely good quality and tasted the chocolate notes, not the nuttiness as much. A bit rich, slightly darker than preferred. But would order again! Smells amazing.
Very smooth, not bitter at all. I was able to drink it black. I tried it with some whip cream as well. So Delicious!
Prepared with pour over. Very satisfying cup. The nutty, chocolate notes are strong but not overpowering.
Very good--would be happy to have again.
Tastes great. Great balance. Not at all bitter, but rich and dark and full of flavor.
Absolutely outstanding coffee. Far and away the best of the ones I have yet received.
Fantastic and almost everything we look for in a brew. It hit the flavor profiles and strength at about 90%!!!! Thank you! We would absolutely drink more of this!
This was one of the best coffees my husband and I have ever had. We will definitely be buying this brand again!
Really, really good. I'm a discerning coffee critic, so very impressed
I will have to try it again in the coffee maker to see if I like it. It works great in the French press.
It was a really nice and smooth dark blend. Definitely a favorite!
Certainly chocolatey, though has a interesting acid/bitter taste
Definitely tasted the chocolate nutty flavor with a hint of sweetness. Nice full bodied.
Just on the edge of TOO dark for my taste, but a very smooth roast. Definitely get the dark chocolate notes with a hint of smoke.
Love this one!!
Full body, full flavor that lingers. It is smooth, no bitterness. Cacao and chocolate flavors are prominent but it is not sweet.
Very good, but not quite as good as the Ember from Alma.
This is good, but I like something a bit fuller bodied
Tasted somewhat stale
Good dark coffee.
Delicious but I do not have a refined taste. I'm looking for strong flavors that can stand out on their own. I can taste the chocolate but do not really taste the nuts.
I prefer milk chocolate over dark chocolate. For the next coffee, can we try a medium roast or dark roast without an overwhelming taste of chocolate?
Very smooth. Loved it! Can't wait to try the next one.
This is the platonic ideal of coffee. Chocolatey, sweet, not bitter and not too fruity/acidic. 20.5g in, 40 out, with a 5s pre-infusion.
Delicious, but a little too bitter, a little thin. Ideally we'd like something a little less bitter, with more body and sweetness.
Better than Flor del Sol but still not much rich flavor.
Love this rich, dark, smooth coffee. Close to, but not quite, espresso. If you like it dark, strong and rich, choose this one!
Super smooth and easy to drink. But quite rich in flavor. Excellent
Tastes really good. I'm not really the best and filling in the various descriptors.
It has been nice. Very smooth with no burst of flavor early nor a lingering taste.
Loved it! Delicious
It is great.
First cup was great!! Looking forward to drinking again tomorrow morning
Maybe I had an old batch or something, but this tasted kind of stale/old/card-boardy to me.
Chocolatey, malty, rich and smooth
Nice and bold, tastes good.
fresh, clear, clean, Nice. Had three cups immediately, and drinking second cup now this morning. I drink it black, early mornings usually with a square or two of dark chocolate. Good impression, thanks for a good sip!
Good quality coffee with strong flavor. I prefer a very dark roast and this is a medium roast so not my favorite.
A bit too smooth for my taste, maybe a little less chocolate would be preferred. It does make for an excellent iced coffee (I make a french press in the morning and have what's left over ice in the afternoon). I look forward to next month's.
The aroma is to die for and the taste is equally enjoyable!
Very pleasant. Slightly bitter, but that may be because I don’t have a great grinder yet.
Lovely, smooth, delicious!
Excellent. One of the favorites around here. Rich, but not overbearing and not overly bitter from the fruity flavors.
Tastes more like a medium roast to me.
Too dark; slimy mouthfeel after drinking
A good blend with a note of chocolate. Not as bold as I like.
This was an earthy coffee. I needed to brew it strong to get the full flavor, and once I did, I enjoyed the bag. The beans were drier than some other coffees, but they still produced a nice, slightly oily finish.
Don't like this one! Love all the others you've sent!
Wow, great coffee! The dark chocolate tone is amazing, better than the 100% Kona coffee I usually drink. Love the bag as well, will definitely like more coffee similar to this one.
Loved the flavor
Smooth and delicious
A little bland
Smooth and easy drinking. Not too roasty.
Wasnt bad, wasnt great
nutty, right level of bitterness
Wow, this is Outstanding. One of the best cups of Coffee I have had in a long time. To quote Bad Boys movie "Now that's how you Coffee, from now on that's how you Coffee!!" ha
Chocolatey, toasty, nutty. In a subtle way it reminds me of a s'more. I felt like some of the complexity I got from the dry aroma went away after brewing, but still a really good, well-balanced cup. Brewed with a French press.
Favorite coffee from Mistobox to date. Beautiful aroma and flavorful.
A slight fruitiness on top of dark chocolate
Loved this blend! It was strong, rich, and great for the mornings.
Really nicely balanced. I had a different coffee from the grocery store while waiting for this one to arrive, and this is so much less bitter by comparison.
The Wife and i really liked this one brewed well in our re-usable K-Cup and our French press. Was dark enough and bitter enough that with a little bit of creamer was excellent
So delicious! The toasted pecans really shine through in this roast, and for me the chocolate followed up for a lovely after taste. Perfectly roasted and truly so smooth
My favorite selection
This was solid coffee. I wish it had been roasted a little darker due to personal preference. The toasted pecan notes really came out when I French pressed it.
Rich and delicious. Love it!
Again, the beans were very dry and did not produce a drinkable coffee. Very week despite using more beans.
I loved this one, dark and smooth
A little bit of a letdown after drinking the rooster one. But still good.
Solid cup of coffee but not as nutty as I seem to prefer my coffee. The chocolate notes overpower the nuttiness that is there.
It was good, but didn't wow me.
Maybe I've been forever corrupted by cheaper store bought French roast, but it's hard for me to go from my oily smoky goodness to a more tempered roast like this one. I wanted to like it more than I think I did. It's just hard for me to enjoy a bean that's remotely acidic. Tried a few extraction methods (press and stovetop) - prefer press but sometimes do stovetop for volume.
Great coffee - would rate it 4.5, - could really taste the nutty notes, which I enjoyed, but thought the taste was a little flat overall. Ground beans smell pretty amazing.
I really enjoyed this one, if anything it’s just a bit too sweet.
Nice. A solid cup of coffee.
Best coffee so far!
Can really taste the pecans. Great coffee
Excellent rich & dark roast. Perhaps the best for my taste I’ve gotten yet in my collection
Rich and not too acidic, good both hot & iced
really good flavor, less sour. i prefer the nutty notes and this one is a good balance
did not like, too dark roasted
Delicious flavor and aroma. Chocolate notes
don't know much about coffee but this was super tasty
Not my favourite. Too dark for me. The "burnt" taste is a little too strong for my liking.
Another excellent choice. Definitely on my top 5
Deep complexity and Dark roast. Still flavorful
Loved it! Great aroma and fantastic flavor. Beans were dry which work perfectly for my automatic espresso machine :)
Sounds weird, but for personal reasons, I don't like the name of this bag! lol
