Finals Week Blend
Rwanda Dukundakawa - Whole Bean Only
I use these beans in both my espresso machine and for my Chemex pour over and they're really fantastic. My pour over coffee and espresso shots need no sugar or cream.
The quality compares well to beans from more expensive from boutique roasters. The only issue I'm having is that they're so delicious that I need to augment my recurring order because I ran out between shipments.
A sophisticated melody of rich chocolate and ripe fruits.
Over the years we have had all the Mystic Monk coffees. We always come back to the Ethiopian as our favorite. It is part of our standing monthly order.
This has to be one of the best tasting and versatile coffees I've ever enjoyed. It is a medium roast which makes it perfect for drip brewing. Because it is not over-roasted, it makes a less bitter cup of espresso and a very drinkable cold brew. In other words, I'm going to order more regularly.
Rich flavor with a great smooth after taste. Love this coffee.
I have been buying this coffee from the Mystic Monk for a few years now. Tried some others but the Ethiopian has become the coffee that I always enjoy. I love it especially for the low acidity, it is not oily, so it doesn't clog my espresso machine and the taste is just right (for me and my friends).
We love this coffee. We buy it because it is organic and have a great flavor!
Great cup... balanced, good acidity, nice floral notes. Will certainly be ordering again!
My entire family loves mystic monk coffee. The coffee also makes a great gift :) Ethopian coffee is not bitter and has a great flavor.
Love the Monks coffee,their wonderful service. I blend my coffees. This is one of my favorites adds body and finish to my blend.
I like the Ethiopian coffee. I usually use a French press, and I enjoy sitting by our kitchen window on a Saturday morning enjoying a nice pot of Ethiopian coffee.
I liked the taste but wish it was available in a dark roast. I prefer a little stronger taste. But over all I like the product I ordered several different coffees so I could determine which Mystic Monk coffee pleased me.
This coffee has a pleasant sourness. It's not quite like your typical arabica coffee--- less bitter. All around delicious! The Monks deliver again :)
I am pleased with the taste. I was very curious when I read that there were notes of, "intense blueberry" in the description. I had my first cup yesterday, and the notes of Blueberry were definitely there! This was my first order, and I look forward to ordering again!
This was my first order and I love the Ethiopian coffee. I will definately order again.
I have been ordering coffee from the Monks for many years. Love the service and they have the best coffee ever. I blend the Ethiopian and Midnight Vigil. Rich fI'll flavor.
I like the various blends of coffee from this region. This blend is great, smooth, not harsh and just the kind I like. I have a hard time finding Ehtiopian coffee but I think I have found a good source
This is the best coffee I've made in my home. Smooth and delicious!!
This blend is one of my new favorites, second only to Jingle Bell Java. It's bright, not bitter or acidic, and smooth. Highly recommended.
Great coffee, just as you would expect a Ethiopian coffee to taste, mellow start strong lingering finish.
Thank you Br. Paul for the great service in handling my order. I didn't notice the grind/whole bean buttons at the order page and mistakenly ordered 2 bags of ground, when I wanted whole bean! Not to worry. Paul was quick to ship a replacement and a pre-paid label for me to return the ground coffee. I am now a customer for life!
Oh, and the coffee is fantastic...flavorful, smooth, with a pleasant and lasting finish. I prefer a coarse burr grind brewed in a French press, with a touch of H&H. Believe me when I say, nothing can compare to the Ethiopian, IMHO! Thanks, again Br. Paul and the rest of the Mystic Monks. Peace to you!.
We've enjoyed several of your coffees, but Ethiopian is without a doubt the winner! So smooth & delicious. We love it!
Shared some with my little brother & he texted me the next day telling me he placed an order. Said that it is so smooth he could drink it all day long...:)...I like the smooth taste but the low acidity level!
The Ethiopian coffee was a hit Christmas morning! "Smooth," "great flavor," "I would love to try the other flavors." A few of the comments that morning from family. You hit it out of the park as usual. My husband is waiting for the blend with mint flavor to come back (his favorite). Thank you for the great customer service.
This makes for an excellent cup of coffee every time, very smooth and earthy. But then again, my family and I have never been disappointed with a Mystic Monk product. I have an uncle who particularly likes the Hermit's Bold blend, and says it's the best coffee he's ever tasted - for an octogenarian, that's quite a statement!
Coffee arrived on time, made first pot upon arrival, smooth as ever!!!!
Mystic Monk scores again with another delicious brand of coffee. Never bitter or biting, it goes down smooth as silk. I love the fact that is is fair trade, too. I'm now a subscriber.
I confess, I am new to MM coffee. I have been ignorantly drinking Folgers until a priest educated me about fair trade coffee and the solidarity with the growers. I was surprised at how smooth and easy drinking this coffee is. I think I'll be able to cut back a lot on the creamer & sugar that I had to add to Folgers to be able to stand drinking it. An analogy I thought of this morning... this MM coffee vs Folgers is like the difference between a freshly picked apple from a local orchard vs the same kind of apple at the grocery store that was picked a few weeks ago while still green and artificially ripened on the truck. That said, just like the local orchard apples, there is a cost differential. Just going to have to suck it up. :-)
This coffee is a very pleasant way to start the day. I have tried several MM coffees and really enjoy exploring the different roasts and blends. I also recommend the Back to School and Finals Week blends when they are available.
I am a long time consumer of MM coffee and have never been dissatisfied. I feel good about buying fair trade and organic, a perfect base for my morning butter coffee. It's so delicious that I subscribed to get a fresh supply regularly.
We tasted nearly all the others and keep coming back to this all time favorite.
Nice and fresh. Great flavor.
This coffee is so delicious I drink it black. It's one of my favorite coffees!
I regularly drank flavored coffee, but once I tasted the Ethiopian, I was hooked. It has just enough to taste flavorful but not too sweet. Never bitter. The best part is the delicious lingering aftertaste. I also now buy the 5 pound bag. I still buy some of the flavors, but this is my morning "go to" coffee. Please consider making it into a Monk Shot!
Although I just purchased the Ethiopian coffee, I have not had a chance to open and use it. However, I have purchased it several times before and I enjoy the flavor first thing in the morning.
This is the best coffee I have brewed so far. It is smooth and never bitter. I love supporting this vocational by getting a great cup of coffee each morning. WAY better than the over-priced coffee shop offering burned beans and starting with the word “star”.
Great coffee! The perfect morning brew. Not to light, yet not to dark either. I buy it 5 lbs at a time. Works well in espresso as well.
This is hands down the BEST coffee I have ever had. I have yet to have someone try this in my home and not comment on how great it tastes.
I am a morning coffee drinker and this is my favorite. I'd like to be more adventurous but this classic blend tastes great and isn't too weak or too strong. A couple of cups is a good way to start the day!
This coffee is the smoothest coffee I have ever tasted. I have had coffee in Brazil, Chile, Peru, Hawaii and this is pure heaven in a cup (no blasphemy intended!!). I do not need cream of any kind nor sugar; there is no acid after burn. I love this. Thank you Wendy Cukierski for listing this on your page and helping me find this Blessed Coffee.
GREAT ON ALL COUNTS - ONLY COFFEE I BUY.
I have to admit, I thought this selection might be too strong for my taste. However, of all the delicious Mystic Monk varieties I have tried, this is the best of the best! It really does have a slight blackberry taste with a rich flavor. I look forward to my next cup!
Too strong and bitter for my taste.
Light and bright, with notes of apricot and roasted hazelnuts. A great coffee to wake you up, or to enjoy with a good cigar anytime. All in all a great blend of coffee that I'll be ordering again.
Truly an excellent coffee & roasted perfectly. The beans are pea berry size but huge on flavor. This is very easy to make your everyday blend & a great way to start the day.
Their Ethiopian is realy high ranked. It is really good.
The best coffee ever! Definitely gourmet. The Mystic Monks do a great job. The aroma is that of fresh berries. The taste, also berry-ish, is my favorite. Who would have thought you could taste blueberries in a cup of joe? Way to go Monks! Outdoing yourselves coffee after coffee!
