The Three Pillars Blend was blended and roasted for you by Temple Coffee. An easy-drinking coffee for any time of day, Temple's Three Pillars Blend is balanced and sweet with a medium body and notes of bittersweet cocoa, subtle dried fruit, and sweet brown sugar.
Tasty and I liked the initial aroma and roast. However, it quickly hits you with bitter cocoa flavors that are a bit overwhelming and wash out everything else. I tried pour over, aeropress, and french press with varying grinds and water temps but that overwhelming bitter aftertaste remained everywhere.
The coffee was fine but not what I asked for. I noted that my preference was single origin light roasted coffee. This is a medium blend. I’m disappointed that my first shipment was not what I was looking for.
Very light and I could actually taste the chocolate flavors! I really liked it
Pretty good, even with a little milk and sweetener.
I like deep citrus & sugars. The subtle flavors were a little too light for me.
I enjoyed this coffee! Delicious!
Really enjoying this one. Great job!! It’s smooth in the French press and it doesn’t have a weird burnt aftertaste like a lot of coffees.
The bitter in the dark chocolate makes this otherwise good coffee too unbalanced
Better than S.O. Blend, not as enjoyable as Epiphany. A more heterogeneous blend of appearance of beans. I could detect a very slight Smokey or wet cardboard flavor, slight citrus (?lemon) though not overly acidic, and perhaps a slight chocolate aftertaste. I used standard French press technique with varying grind sizes, as well as Kalita Wave pour over per directions on bag. Willing to experiment some more with next bag but really want to avoid Smokey.
It didn't taste great with my setup.
Not too dark or bitter, went nearly smooth when I added creamer. Possibly the best coffee I've had to date.
One of my favorites--deep but well-balanced, great as espresso and cold brew.
To me, it had a bitter taste.
Very good thanks!
Wonderful taste, perfect balance of sweet and bitter! Not too dark, not too light.
Really tasty and fruity. I loved this bag. Was sad when it was empty
Fantastic flavor, incredible aroma. I Loved drinking it hot or cold.
I taste the chocolate, to me almost has a acidic/apple taste, like reminds me of dark roasts strangely.
One of my favorites - very chocolately and nutty, but not overpowering. Perfect for a gentle wake-up.
4.5 Stars actually, nice subtle flavor.
Ok, nothing special. Def want to try Temple Coffee again since I know they are top notch, just not this one.
Liked the sweeter notes
Good but a little less flavor than desired
Excellent flavor. Rich in Central/South American bean flavors
Plenty okay. Nothing noteworthy.
This coffee is so delicious and smooth, great flavor notes, goes well with cream and sugar. Exactly the kind of coffee I was looking for.
Enjoyed the sweetness and cocoa notes.
Little too smoky/burnt tasting
Found a little bitter but ok.
I liked this roast a lot! A solid 4+.
