This is the Black Market Blend Forty-Eight brought to you by Cartel Coffee Lab. The two coffees chosen for Blend Forty-Eight come from Huila and Antioquia in Colombia. This blend has a rich body, optimal sweetness, and a slight berry note. We love this versatile blend on all brewing methods from espresso to drip and everything in between.
The coffee really holds true to the description, the chocolate flavor is incredibly potent and makes for a unique taste that I don't often get in drip coffee. That being said, the flavor is a bit too strong (bitter) for my own taste
Brewed with my grinder/coffee pot Mr. Coffee - so delicious! An easy cup of coffee to enjoy in the morning.
Not very interesting.
Best one yet
Really enjoyed this one. Very smooth.
Great, deep chocolate flavor
It just wasn't that great of a coffee. The flavors seemed a little off and bitter.
Great easy drinkable
Very good coffee
This was a bit too bitter tasting for my liking. It also was a bit on the blander side.
Overly bitter taste
Too acidic for my taste
Too light, don't like it (not sure why this note isn't saving/submitting...)
Ok more like diner coffee.
Best blend of coffee i've had -- duplicate this and you'll have happy customers!
It was an okay, tasted a bit burnt - perhaps the roasting process over did it

A new favorite! We must get this again!
Perfect for espresso, iced lattes, and affogato.
The was our favorite coffee we've received so far this year.
Not a strong berry sweetness but definitely good clean roast.
Very good flavor. Would like this again at some point
Loved this one! Please send this one again
I haven't rated coffee in so long. I should get better. But I made a batch of cold brew out of this and it's fantastic. The fruity notes are so pronounced and it's really a delight to drink.
This was my favorite coffee I think so far. SO SMOOTH and delicious. I will order this again if possible!
One of my favorites so far!
A little bland but not bad. It was also a little more of a medium than a light roast in my opinion.
Good. Right below Huck and Thesis
Chocolatey and nutty, but not really getting the berry notes mentioned on the bag. A very good, but standard, cup of coffee.
Love this! Very chocolatey.
This was our least favorite coffee we have received. Overly acidic
Just okay. For me, the notes of milk chocolate and berries came through the aroma, but not so much with the taste. Relatively balanced, but seems to be missing a little something and is a little sour. I'm going to try grinding it a little finer to see if I can get rid of some of the sourness and add a bit more umph. Brewed with a French press.
Very. Smooth. Good.
I wasn't a fan of the bitter flavor and notes.
I liked this coffee alot at first. But now I'm starting to think it's a little too sour for me. I can smell the chocolate note on the beans, but I don't taste it much in the coffee.
I'm brewing this in a v60 with the Hoffman method.
solid, nothing memorable
Forgot to record notes. Remember it being pretty good.
Brewed in Wilfa Precision coffee maker. 45g beans, medium fine grind, 1L of water.
We already loved Cartel coffee and were so happy to see in the rotation! This was so rich and delicious while still being a good breakfast coffee
Love this coffee! This has been one of our favorites
