Ethiopia Yirgacheffe (WHOLE BEAN ONLY)
This is the best coffee I have ever had! Nice hot cup over my morning prayers and I am good for the day. Nice and smooth no after taste, Coffee the way it should be
My husband and son love the coffee, and I love the tea!
A really nice coffee hence the reason I have subscription to get it ever month.
Very bold. Just what I like early in the morning.
love the coffee. No bitter taste even taste great cold.
I love this coffee and look forward to my morning roast as soon as the alarm goes off.
Really enjoy this blend very enjoyable
This is our favorite coffee. It's also our daily coffee. In fact, my husband keeps a bag at work!
A robust roast that exceeds every expectation. I have traveled world wide and the best coffee anywhere is right in my own back yard. Mystic Monk Hermits Bold is a must have staple for any coffee lover.
A robust roast that lives up to every expectation. I have traveled world wide and the best coffee anywhere is right in my own back yard. Mystic Monk
Purchased as a gift for a friend. This is his MM coffee of choice!
I get this every year for our son-in-law, and he dearly loves it!
I love the dark roast coffees!!!
I have tried many different brands of coffee and Mystic Monk coffee is the best. I like only regular flavor coffee and I have several favorites Monks favorite, breakfast blend.
Excellent brew. Very dark and robust. Had several over and everyone was pleased. Thank you
My sons enjoy this blend each morning on their way to work.
Excellent aroma and taste
Great bold flavor and not bitter at all. Very smooth and nice on the palate.
No bitter taste in this blend. Good everyday morning coffee. Love acidity.
Great coffee. Strong enough to get the eyes open and tasty enough for a second cup. Doesn't take a hermit to appreciate the value of a small sensual pleasure like that.
My husband and I love the Hermets blend. It's smooth and robust but not bitter. We are hooked!
I'm doing something a bit odd, and this was a great choice.
I recently was diagnosed with Type II diabetes, and I have to go very low carb. I was looking for something to replace my beer drinking, and choose to try room temperature homebrewed coffee.
I needed a good dark Arabica blend. Found it with Hermits Blend. I rinse off a dry hopper, fill it about a quarter full, then fill a gallon drink dispenser with water. I just leave the dry hopper in. It's ready to drink after about 12 hours, still good after about 4 days. By then, the gallon is empty, so I do it again.
I've yet to find a bag of Mystic Monk I don't like, and the Hermits Blend certainly didn't disappoint. Not overly bold, smooth with a rich flavor that lingers in just the right way. I hosted a coffee morning with my girlfriends and everyone loved it - second and third cups were had by all. I would buy it again for sure!
I bought the cowboy blend and the hermits blend. Just ground the cowboy blend today. So I actually haven’t tried either yet. Loved the paradiseo though. I prefer a darker roast so I am looking forward to the hermits blend.
A smooth drink with no aftertaste. I would prefer a bolder taste. Perhaps blending it with a stronger brew would satisfy my taste buds. My wife likes it just the way it is.
The Hermits Bold Blend has been my absolute favorite for the past few years. I store the grounds in my Monk Coffee Vault and strictly use the Monk Press. I prefer a bold flavor, without a bad after taste, and this is just that coffee. I regularly purchase this in both the 1lb and 5lb bags, depending on my current stock.
Love your coffe
Bought two bags, one each of Hermts Bold blend and one of Cowboy coffee. Working on Hwrmits right now. Bold yet mild. Ages well in the pot so the first cup is as good as the last. Not that I let it linger, of course. Looking forward to trying the Cowboy Coffee. If it's as good as this I don't know what I'll put in my subscription. Maybe both?
Loved the Hermits Bold Blend. Mixed it with the Brazilian Dark and it was wonderful. Placed an order for 4 more kinds this week. Can't wait to try more!
This is a WIN WIN! Great coffee that supports our holy monks in their vocation. I will be purchasing this coffee regularly.
Really an excellent medium-to-bold coffee with a smooth start and and a slightly bold aftertaste. I use a percolator and once the water starts to hard boil, I reduce to low heat for eight minutes then remove and let cool for two minutes. I highly recommend Hermits Bold Blend and can't wait to try another MysticMonkCoffee.
I really enjoy this blend! It's very smooth and delicious! I wouldn't mind trying something even a little more bold. Any suggestions?
This is my favorite blend!! I am a black coffee drinker so I REALLY taste it. Very robust....do you ever sniff your coffee beans? (You know you do!) It smells just like it tastes....heavenly.
An outstanding coffee.
I like bold rich coffee, this it that blend.
After tasting coffee for over 40 years I have to say this is an unbelievable taste; if you like dark roast but don't want the acidity this is the best. I drink 1 qt every morning and if I don't eat I don't get the upset feeling: this is worth a try!
This one comes with a strong bold attitude that is smooth and soft. It's hard to put it in words but it's one of the best blends. The monks outdo themselves with this blend and offer you quite the experience. The blend tastes smooth, layered, and quite bold. There is a hint of bitterness at the bottom of each cup which makes it even more compelling.
Hermits blend is a great way to start the morning. It has a robust flavor and aroma. One of my favorite Mystic Monk coffees
Great coffee! Strong but not bitter. Deep, dark body & flavor.
Excellent! One of my very favorite blends; if you like a robust brew, you should try this.
If you like a good, robust coffee blend that is not overpowering this is a good choice. I have been getting it for a couple of years now and love it. It is one of my all time favorites.
For people who like coffee with character, I totally recommend Hermit's Bold Blend. It is good on its own and also mixes well with other coffees--we mix it with beans from Costco and/or Peet's to create a customized blend for our house. My husband and I have gotten Hermit's Bold Blend for a long time and have just decided to increase our order in future. It's great!
For the birthday of my coffee-drinking daughter, I ordered four different varieties of Mystic Monk coffee. She loved all of them, but Hermit's Bold Blend was her hands-down favorite for the added benefit of boldness to Mystic Monk products' unfailing smoothness and great taste. We'll be ordering Hermit's Bold again!
I really enjoy a bold coffee flavor and this blend delivers it. It's a smooth coffee with a rich color and flavor. I love it!
Have tried all the dark roast coffees in my De'Longhi expresso maker. This is by far the best dark roast. Makes a great latte.
We love dark roast coffee. This one is a perfect take on the robust, roasted flavor that you expect to find. This one stops short of being completely dominated by the roasted flavor, though. It's a more complex, nuanced cup of coffee than many dark roasted coffees we've purchased elsewhere. We recently ordered another bag so we're hooked. Not that we're giving up our wonderful five-pound bag of Ethiopian single origin coffee. Every Mystic Monk coffee we've tried has been outstanding and special in its own way.
Bought this for my husband. He enjoyed so much that I will soon be setting up an auto ship for coffee from the Mystic Monks.
Very smooth and rich in flavor. Great job.
Mornings just would not be the same with out a rich cup of Hermit Bold Blend from our favorite monks!
I really like the Hermit's Bold Blend. I wish that Mystic Monk would come out with the K-cup or Monk-Shot version.
Whether you enjoy a bold, dark roast like Hermits Bold Blend, or a lighter (but still good to wake up to) roast like the Cowboy blend, you can't go wrong with Mystic Monk Coffees. I also like to switch in some Midnight Vigils every so often, its another good, rich taste. And the Keurig Breakfast Blend pods are favorites at work, I have to hide them or the folks in the office will use them up and leave me hanging!
Hermits bold is a very rich and great tasting coffee.
We like a nice dark bold coffee. This is one of the Mystic Monk blends we have in our rotation. Easy ordering & delivery process too.
Another great bold blend from the best coffee source in creation! It has a sharp, almost tart quality to its bold flavor that I really enjoy. Keep it up!
If you want tasty, smooth (not the least bitter), dark coffee that has understated fruitiness that doesn't overpower you, then this is THE PERFECT COFFEE. My wife and I switched from the very excellent Mystic Monk Espresso Blend to this coffee. We used to be regulars for Espresso Blend from the "other coffee company" and liked it. So that was the flavor we started with from Mystic Monk. But frankly Hermits Bold is just the best coffee we've made.
Have not opened the coffee yet. I know the coffee will be good from past use.
Outstanding blend. All of Mystic Monks coffees are delicious and smooth. Hermits Blend is bold, but doesn't have the tree bark or burnt wood flavor of major brands to obtain its bold taste. We have become regulars now and order all of our coffee via Mystic Monk. My wife's favorite is Hermits Blend and mine is Cowboy Blend.
While I normally enjoy a more "in your face" coffee, this blend is quite good. I have been very happy with the coffees I have purchased from Mystic Monk.
Bold and encouraging, Hermits Bold Blend is just the thing for waking up for the day's adventures. I am not a morning person, but after my two cups, I feel ready to face the world. Well, not the world: I actually am a lay hermit in private vows.
Stopped in Thermopolis at the Black Bear Cafe onthe way back from Yellowstone in October. Tried the Cowboy Blend and was smitten. Ever since we have been ordering your coffee bean blends back in Kansas City- love them all!!
Outstanding flavor! Very happy with my purchase.
This is a good morning cup of coffee for those of us who like a bold brew. And love the re-sealable packaging.
Great coffee! Super rich flavor and always fresh. Such a treat!
This is a very good tasting coffee that is also gentle on the stomach. We have been drinking it for almost two years.
I've been drinking this coffee for a while. Have it on reorder. It comes just in time and I always get compliments on it. I highly recommend it
The coffee is great! I wish you had notified me that if I had ordered one more bag, the freight would have been free, which would have offset the price of the fourth bag! Next time I will know better.
Thanks for being there -
In Game Seven of the World Series you don’t want a bland pitcher to lock down the game, you want someone bold to challenge the heart of the lineup.
With minutes left in the Super Bowl you don’t want a boisterous athlete on the field to make a statement, you want a bold commander to lead a sustained assault to drive your team to the championship.
When you’re standing before an appellate court you don’t want a boring monotonous monologue, you want a bold statement to sear your argument into the court’s memory.
When you dance with your new bride, you don’t want to be brash and embarrass her mere minutes into your marriage, you want to be bold and lead her around the floor like you know what you’re doing.
Bold, my friends - that single word sums up this coffee. Not bland or boisterous, not boring or brash.
You can start your day with more pricey or flashy coffees, or with more mainstream or mundane coffees, but why? Why not go out and seize the day like a Latin Carp with a mug full of Hermit’s Bold Blend?
The dark coffees comprising this blend create a robust flavor fusion which satiates the coffee-loving palate. For those who don’t dilute their coffee with cream or sugar, but enjoy a strong coffee flavor - this roast is neither too dry nor too watery, yet remains smooth and hardy.
Despite the strength of the flavor, it is an incredibly versatile coffee. In addition to my morning joe, it’s routinely used in our household when cooking desserts like Tiramisu or as an add-in to dark, rich chocolate frostings. The full-bodied flavor makes it a phenomenal coffee for cold brewing those icey, cream-filled coffee flavored drinks on hot summer days.
All told, this is one fine coffee. If you don’t like dark hearty coffees, then you should probably look elsewhere (I’ve also reviewed Cowboy Blend) but this is my favorite dark coffee. Ever.
Go forth and start your day with a stout, bold coffee and look no further than Hermits Bold Blend to set the tone.
This coffee is delicious with a great smell and blend. It is a gift to my taste buds. It keeps me going throughout the day, and the monks always send the coffee so quickly.
My first experience of Mystic Monk coffee was a bag of "Hermit's Blend" and it was extremely good. I will definitely order it again as well as try other blends.
Absolutely delicious......who needs Starbucks?! I love this coffee.
I enjoy a dark roast coffee and this coffee fit the bill I enjoy every sip each morning
This coffee is great
I am a tea drinker, but I bought some coffee for my mother in law who loves coffee. She raved about the wonderful flavor and how smooth the taste is. I tried it as well and I must say that it is delicious. This tea drinker might have to convert to drinking coffee.
I enjoyed Hermits Bold Blend. I am seriously considering changing my order. to 4 bags of Hermits Bold Blend.
Hermits bold blend is a great dark coffee! We get it every year for Christmas! Family favorite
I have been orderingoing this coffee for years. Quite simply, it's the best.
Outstanding,I make 2 cups,and that is all of coffee for the day,and that is a special way to start every day!
I bought this coffee for my daughter who was ecstatic! She had been debating asking for her "Favorite Coffee" for Christmas and I beat her to it! A great surprise :)
I am a serious coffee drinker and have developed a taste that hasademy friends and family consider me a coffee snob! LOl! When I first tried the Mystic monks coffee, I was blown away! The Cowboy Coffee and the Hermit's Bold blend are absolutely out of this world. Both of them have such a rich complex flavor that is absolutely extraordinary. There is no bitter aftertaste; it is just a pleasant nutty deep flavor. My hat is off to the wonderful monks who create these beautiful products. I have never been disappointed with anything I have tried. Thank you so much for your hard work and may God bless you this Christmas season and throughout the year!!!
We love Mystic Monk coffee and accessories! The dark roast coffees are delicious. We have two coffee canisters dressing up our counter, each with the Mystic Monk in it. A black one keeps our ground dark roast fresh and the silver one is for our medium roast. I love how it works: push out the air as you seal it up, then put on the lid. Beautiful AND functional!
