"Excellent citrusy flavor profile. Fresh and smooth. "

"My husband and I tend to love beans that are on the sweeter side, so we were really excited to try this. We make lattes every morning - this went really well with my almond milk, but my husband wasn't a huge fan of it paired with whole milk. He actually said it was a little too bitter for him. "

"Was pretty good. I drank it as an Americano and was happy with my cup of coffee. I enjoyed the nuttiness of it. "

"Good! More fruity than I would have thought but good nonetheless. Good for espresso."

"My boyfriend loved this one... For me, not so much. Personally I am not as big of a fan of anything with a fruit essence. With all of that said, not a bad coffee - in fact a good one if you love the citrus. "

"Tasted the slight sourness of citrus and it was pretty good on its own, but perfect with the paired Veracruz Orange white chocolate!! I’m loving the coffee + chocolate sampler box!!"

"A little different then your traditional espresso, but still brews a great cup. Many interesting flavors that really worked for me."

"I am not a fan of citrus in coffee and this was for sure citrus. "

"Strong on the citrus in both smell and taste. A solid choice for a cafe latte, but not particularly interesting or memorable. "

"While it was dark and strong, as espresso should be, there was not as much syrupy texture as I prefer - this could have been my espresso pulls though."

"This one is too dark tasting. I tried with the paired chocolate and it was still gross to me. I did not get a honey or creamy taste nor did I taste citrus or anything sweet about this."

"Did not stand out in flavor. Missed the distinct smell of roasted beans when opened the bag. Nonetheless, it made a good cup of espresso. "

"A very sweet and smooth blend with excellent flavors that gave me a great reason to get up in the morning. Used a fine grind."

"One of the Best espresso blends I have tried. This is a Great coffee both as espresso and when used in the chemex. Such a strong, flavorful cup of Joe. I love Zoka coffee. "

"The fruit notes were too strong for me and overcame the other (mostly nutty) flavors. Using a coarse grind, I brewed the entire sample bag in a french press with four cups of water for 4 minutes."

"Very well-balanced, rich espresso. Nice chocolate notes that blend into a a sweet honey body which finishes with a light fruity acidity. The chocolate and honey flavors paired very well with milk drinks. I will be buying this again. This was a very forgiving coffee to dial in for home espresso."
