I haven’t even finished my last box and I got my new batch of coffee!
BEHOLD – THE AWESOME MISTOBOX OF FEBRUARY 2014!
In all seriousness, they’ve renamed the smaller-sized subscription that contains four 1.7oz bags of coffee the “Awesome Subscription” and the bigger-sized sub of four 3.4oz bags of coffee as the “More Awesome Subscription.” They’ve even added an option to get it bi-weekly instead of monthly!
Barefoot Coffee Roasters’s Guatemala Amarillo – USD$19.00 for 12oz
“Tropical fruit acidity, syrupy brown sugar sweetness, and a delicate, yet balanced mouthfeel”
This sounds like a great cup of coffee to enjoy on its own, but I won’t know until I try it out for myself! Like they recommend, I don’t open the packages until I’m ready to grind them up and brew. But, the natural sweetness sounds like it will balance out the tropical fruit flavours quite nicely.
Also, congratulations for this bean for winning 3rd place in the Guatemala Cup of Excellence program!
HalfWit Coffee Roasters’ Peru Tupac Amaru – USD$17.00 for oz
“Heavy fig notes, a creamy cashew butter sweetness, and a round, syrupy body that is reminiscent of molasses”
Wow, this is gonna be a treat to have! It sounds like such a decadent treat that I’ll have to try it when the weather’s a bit worse (which is like this entire season).
It’s also great to see that this exclusive, small lot is made by 24 producers of the Tupac Amaru Cooperative in Puno, Peru. I love coffee from smaller producers! You can almost taste the love they put into their crops.
Onyx Coffee Lab’s Ethiopia Misty Valley – USD$18.00 for 12oz
“Coffee blossoms, jasmine, black cherry and a luscious, creamy body”
One of my favourite country of origins for coffee is most definitely Ethiopia! I haven’t really noticed if there’s a particular region I prefer, but anytime Ethiopia comes up when coffee is mentioned, I’m there. This is going to be no different with such a unique blend of flavours! Even though I tend to prefer simpler flavours in coffee and wine, I’m looking forward to this one!
Bowtruss Coffee Roasters’ Costa Rica La Cuesta – USD$17.00 for 12oz
“Light, clean, balanced, concord grapes, spiced pecans”
It looks like this particular blend is a micro-lot from Costa Rica! If you like South American coffee, this one would be the one to buy since it’s such a classic combination of flavours with just a hint of sweet grapes and spiced pecans, which sounds like it’ll raise the cup to a new level.
The printing actually cut off a bit on the right side, so I’m actually guessing what it says. But, I can tell that it comes from a region that produces some of the best coffee in the world!
Verdict: I never have a problem with MistoBox! They always deliver me delicious, single-source coffee right to my doorstep from the US and they’re even faster than ever now!
