I really enjoy drinking this coffee. I have made it using both my aeropress and espresso machine and have liked both methods. With the aeropress I liked the brightness of flavors president and the espresso mixed well with milk for a light and enjoyable cup of coffee.
I still can't dial in my machine with this coffee. I get 18g in and 35g out in 28 sec but it still comes out sour and acidic. I am still playing with it but, as much as I like flavor variety of lighter roasts, this one might be a bit too light for my barista skills to pull off.
tasted great, some of the better espresso i've had so far
Not our cup of tea (pun intended)
Not bad for pour over, but terribly sour for espresso.
Good, but I'm only on my 3rd morning sipping it and I wonder how much staying power it can have or if I will tire of it quickly. It can be a little tangy, but since I'm used to drinking a lot of flavorless coffee, it's neat to be able to taste interesting flavors immediately. Looking forward to revisiting this after I've had many other samples to see how it compares.
More details: I have been brewing this with an OXO 9 cup automatic brewer for drip coffee. Today I used my Breville espresso maker. It was very good! I think it indeed makes a better espresso than drip as it is labeled. I still need to adjust the espresso grinder a bit, as the shots are a little over extracted but I've still enjoyed them!
The coffee smells good and has a great texture. But it is way too bitter for me.
Slightly tangy flavour profile (likely to be lime?)
Slight fruit but can't tell that it's melon
Not identifying sweet/toffee flavours
The beans were super fresh and smelled great BUT all the shots I've been pulling end on the acidic side of the fence. Definitely taste the Melon / Lime flavor, but that's not usually what I personally go for.
We liked it! Well balanced and, despite reservations based on tasting notes, not too acidic.
Lively indeed. And deep citrus feel. Very much enjoying this bean. Feel like it only get better.
Day 3 brewing update - very tangy, like the feel but don't know how sustainable this flavor would be
One of us loved it. The other was more indifferent. It was high quality but our issue may be more with our preparation method.
I was very nice in a cappuchino - felt strong but could have been a little bolder. Felt light and not good as a latte (which my wife drinks) - I should have guessed from the name.
Pretty Decent - A good brew to start the ISS coffee adventure.
A bit too bright and acidic for espresso. Could be more developed - sweeter and deeper.
It was fine, I wasn’t able to pick up too many of the melon notes. I think I was expecting something more fruity? Not that I didn’t like it, it’s just not quite what I was expecting. I feel like it would’ve gone good with some chocolate flavor in there or caramel, something to make it a little richer than it was at current.
Presented as a little weak in strength. Prefer chocolate and caramel tones vs. fruity.
a bit sour, not as strong coffee flavor
Coffee tastes great, also love the sustainable pack. I thought the brewing instructions on the back seemed a bit off. Made it once as directed and then adjusted for something stronger. Great first pick!
It was okay, but more tangy than I liked.
It drinks smooth. I think I’m wanting to move from the light medium to a slightly darker roast coffee.
Really nice - no complaints
I like this for what it is but I think I prefer a little darker coffee
Pretty yummy. I don't have an espresso maker, so I just ground and brewed the coffee normally, so I'm sure I'm missing out on some of its goodness, but still good!
It was a little lighter than I think we liked but was certainly lively and bright.
Reminds me a little of dogwood coffees. Slightly more acidic than I like but enjoyed the flavors described here as ginger and lively.
I really didn't like this in my niche zero grinder, but after running it through my flat burr grinder it really brought out all fruity notes
Not a fan of this particular blend. It left an odd aftertaste that did not seem to resemble any of the listed tasting notes.
Good, but somewhat disappointing
Decent flavor but too tart/tangy for my preference.
Lemon was very forward and had a sour taste despite trying many settings on my Breville Express. Tried to add milk and use as a latte but had to add a lot of sweetener to get rid of acidity. I don’t think I like strong citrus forward. If someone else has this more dialed in with grind and dial settings, please share. Using grind 4 with dial at 3o’clock. That has gotten me the best extraction thus far.
almost tasted burnt - didn't really love this
Fresh, but a bit too sour for me
I got used to it, but the lime flavor caught me off guard. This is not a coffee that will mix well with any sugar or cream, but after the initial shock is good just as is.
Good coffee, didn’t knock my socks off
A very nice coffee. Maybe a bit heavy on the fruit notes for me but just as a matter of personal taste.
I liked it more for iced coffee where the flavors popped out more in the milk and sweetener as opposed to drinking it black where it was a little too fruit-forward. My husband said he prefers coffee with more notes of vanilla and caramel in his iced coffee.
Really good cup of espresso. Bright fruity flavors and has consistent body. My favorite of the more fruit forward espresso's I have tried from mistobox
we switched to a higher end machine half way through this one so i think it may have been even higher, we were just dialing in the new one
Too sweet and lacking in body.
A little to overdeveloped leading to ashy roasty finishing notes
Bright, fruity, well balanced.
Absolutely loved. Light and fruity will definitely order this espresso again.
Not meant to be made with an espresso machine and am very disappointed with Mistobox for sending me this and wasting a bag of beans because this is trash unless you plan to use another method.
My favorite espresso so far, I feel like you never see Sulawesi in espresso, super good.
Coffee was okay for me, but wife did not like it. I detected the melon notes, but also some unpleasant bitterness at the end. Wife has no idea what she likes, but that she liked the previous one better.
Perfect, balanced coffee taste! Exactly what you'd want from a bold morning brew!
