A note from the curator is printed behind the box’s cover! I like this format — you get a little info about the origin of the coffee and what flavors to look for in your cup, but it is still simple, and you aren’t bombarded with cards, stickers, or promotions.

Caffe Vita Coffee Roasting Co Peru La Convencion ($20) These coffee beans are harvested from small shareholders in La Convencion, Cusco, Peru.  They are then roasted in Brooklyn, New York.

The bottom of the paper bag indicates when the beans were roasted.

This fully washed coffee was grown by the various smallholder producers, between 1,400 – 2,000 meters above sea level.

It has hints of cocoa, clover honey, and almond praline.

Look how perfectly roasted these coffee beans are!

The beans were roasted just enough to start developing some nice oils on the surface.

Depending on your coffee intake, this bag can last from one to two weeks. My Aeropress eats a lot of coffee (but it makes a nice potent cup), so this bag will go for about a week for me.

The flavor notes provided were very accurate. The coffee had a deep cocoa nib base that tasted of unsweetened chocolate, yet it wasn’t bitter.

On top was layered some rich nuttiness and light, sweet notes of honey. The body was very light, with this being a flavor-forward bean and not one relying on mouthfeel or bold roast.

MistoBox is a wonderful subscription for your daily coffee fix. You can set the frequency of deliveries, so you never run out, and there is enough in each bag for several pots of coffee. They choose high-quality beans from growers around the world, so you always get something fun and interesting. This latest selection had a very approachable flavor profile — lots of vivid flavor without going too far in any direction made this a great choice for a fun everyday cup.
