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

"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."
