First Look


There was an information sheet about Coffee Crate.


To ensure everyone knows the proper way to brew coffee, a sheet of coffee tips was included.


The information card gave details about where each coffee was from and taste notes.

For the review, all taste impressions are from my husband.

One-Eyed Jack (Black Powder Roasting Co)

One-Eyed Jack (Black Powder Roasting Co)

  • Region: Sumatra, Ethiopia
  • Roast: Dark
  • Process: Organic, Blend
  • Profile: Bold, Chocolate, Tangy

Taste Impressions: This coffee starts out with an aroma that is definitely bold as it says on the label. Tasting this coffee, you can see that it tastes almost like it smells. The coffee had some chocolateness but it gets overpowered by the tangy taste at the end. This is one of those that smells fantastic but is something I could casually drink, because it has flavors I don’t care for.

 Guatemala Brazil Roast (Boquette Mountain Coffee)

 Guatemala Brazil Roast (Boquette Mountain Coffee)

  • Region: Huehuetenango, Guatemala
  • Roast: Brazil
  • Profile: Pleasing, Easy, Chocolate

Taste Impressions:  The aroma was a pleasant chocolate sent. The brew itself was of course a darker color with a full body taste that seemed to be low in acidity. The after taste wasn’t bad. I think this might be my favorite.

Yirgacheffe FTO (PennyCup Coffee Co)

Yirgacheffe FTO (PennyCup Coffee Co)

  • Region: Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia
  • Roast: Light
  • Process: Fully washed and sun-dried.
  • Profile: Floral, lemon, bergamot

Taste Impressions: The aroma is somewhat flowery. And it taste is seems light in a way along with the light taste there’s a little bit of a byte perhaps from the lemon part of the taste. The after taste makes me think got the acidity level is a little bit higher on this coffee.

Final Thought: Overall the quality of these coffees are fantastic. If i had to choose my favorite it would be the Guatemala Brazil roast. I am not a bold coffee taste kind of drinker but I look for an “easy” tasting one. and it fits the bill. I think this would be a great subscription for the coffee lover in your house.  To try Coffee Crate, use this link with the code BOXMOM to save $5.00 on your purchase.

    Can you choose to have dark, medium or light roast? I love coffee but can not drink dark at all. Thank you for doing these boxes. I watch every day for new unboxings. Have a great day, Leisa
