This is the Banner Dark Blend brought to you by Sightglass Coffee. Banner Dark features fully washed coffees from Central and South America sourced for their deep, full-bodied sweetness, attributes which respond beautifully to a more robust roast.
SO roasty. The chocolate and caramel notes are there, but are overwhelmed by the bitterness of the roast level. Any lingering sweetness is gone - this coffee is SAVORY, even with sugar and cream, and not in that tasty, harmonious way. This coffee swings too far toward the dark end of the spectrum for me.
I got more citrus notes with coffee than I expected. Not a fave
It's smooth, but not favorful
Amazing coffee, it was great hot and cold. I would buy this again!

Loved this as an espresso.
This is absolutely wonderful - rich, smooth and flavorful. Perfect!
Wonderfully smooth and full bodied. I personally like a coffee that is a little more robust and dark but the flavor was very interesting. Would highly recommend to somebody who likes a medium roast.
I really love this coffee. On the bag, they describe it as a "classic cup of coffee." I often share my coffee with friends so this was perfect because its very approachable for many pallets. I was hoping you could recommend other beans similar to this that you think I would enjoy. Thanks!
A little bitter for me.
Alyssa loved this one!
Well balance for my taste. Just enough sweet and not citrusy.
Really liked this one
Great flavor, light weight, minimal acid. Easily overpowered by unfiltered water. Beans grind up finely. A great single cup, good for a delight mid day.
Consistent and full bodied
Wasn't crazy about it. Not great, but not bad either.
I loved this coffee on first taste so much I immediately ordered another bag. I knew I would go through it quick.. It's everything I love: low acidity, deep flavor, a lot of chocolate notes.. It wasn't until a week in to drinking it I found something really off-putting: This has such a tobacco scent and aftertaste, that I can barely drink it. It reminded me of chicory coffee, and I just don't enjoy that.. The smell alone after knocking the puck out of the portafilter needs to be thrown away immediately, and stored in the garage, or your house smells like a smoker has been living there. It reminded me of when my grandma, a pack-a-day smoker, died. We had to clean out her apartment. I took an heirloom (a book) home, because it reminded me of her. When I brought it in the house, the only thing I could smell was that nasty tobacco tar smell. I had to keep the book in the garage. This coffee, after being brewed, smells like that. While drinking it's not bad. But your coffee breath and brewed coffee, to me at least, have such a tobacco/tar scent that it is extremely off-putting.. This is the longest review i've written, and I feel bad for saying it. But if someone is really turned away by tobacco smell, stay away. Both my parents are smokers and I hate this smell.
Good, but not one of my favorites
Decent and full bodied, but not as flavorful in espresso.
not bold enough for my liking
Absolutely love it! Quality beans!
Well balanced. Didn't knock my socks off or anything.
I really enjoyed this coffee
Just what I was looking for!
Like a coffee with more acidity. Too smooth.
Very dark and roasty. I tried it first with french press, and then with drip. Drip actually brought out more of the sweetness at the front, and both had the heavy, pretzel-like roastiness at the end. I can appreciate it as a good bean, but it's not my favorite type of roast
Love this one! Perfect level of sweetness in a full-body coffee.
Great smooth slightly toasty flavor
Loved it. Great flavor and smooth.
Rich quality and good flavor.
Smooth and somehow still rich. Easy on the pipes without losing any flavor.
