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.
A bit underwhelming if you're looking for chocolate and sweeter flavors...this maybe good for someone who is looking for a slightly neutral and or tobacco tones.
Smooth and balanced. Classic chocolate roast
I moved to a new espresso machine, the La Pavoni lever machine. So i had to use a lot to try to get it right. I had to make it so fine that i kept getting more of a bitter flavor. I didnt hate it but i think i gave it an unfair experience as I was in wild testing mode.
It was well balanced, citrusy for sure but mellow notes of chocolate could not appreciate. Good pairing with milk, in my opinion I think it enhances it.
Pretty good. Well balanced coffee. It tasted a tad darker than I thought it would
Pretty good. Just wanted a little more depth and body. Brewed pour over method at 16g per cup.
Very good cup this morning, thank you. I love the flavor profile of this coffee, but would like to try a darker roast. I'm still working on grind size to see if it changes the notes I get.
Excellent chocolate notes.
Balanced and very nice daily blend. I would prefer a bit more character and acidity but this was very good.
The caramel stood out in this blend.
pretty much the flavor profile I like
Very smooth, balanced. Subtle. Sophisticated. But too subtle, definitely mild in flavor for a morning cup.
Great clean and balanced
It seemed to have a slight bitterness to it in my opinion.
I made a French Press and a pour over as I typically do but there didn’t seem to be much flavor in the coffee.
A good example of an "everyday" coffee--respectable but not stellar. I found that it tasted a little like brown paper.
Fantastic. Love this toaster and their standard blend never fails to taste delicious. Tasting notes are on point, you can smell the brown sugar the moment you open the bag!
A very smooth cup of coffee, not bitter at all. It tastes very good with a bit of vanilla syrup and a splash of cream, however, I don’t get notes of chocolate or caramel. It’s pleasant but ultimately forgettable.
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+.
