    Flavorful and well-balanced. Slightly acid finish gives way to a nice lasting and lingering fiavor.

    Immediate flavor that is remarkably consistent from first sip to finish. Light, well-balanced, with a slight sweetness.

    This medium roast presents dark with nutty flavors. An average mouthfeel, dark roast at the finish, and flavors of coffee bean, walnut, and a tough of hazelnut.

  • This roast has a classic dark flavor, leaning a bit chocolately, but not too complex otherwise.

  • This was a fairly average roast. I did not notice any standout characteristics, but it was rather smooth and traditionally flavored.

    Intriguingly, this roast blends two distinctly different beans, resulting in a cacao / light citrus flavor profile. However, I prefer light roast (this blend is advertised as light-medium) and this coffee presented to me as a dark roast in flavor and feel.

    This roast is what I would call "dark forward". So, if you like dark roast, you will be happy! There is a subtle tartness for complexity, and some bitterness at the finish.

    This hotel coffee was surprisingly decent. The flavor was pleasantly neutral and was just strong enough. There was a subtle old bean flavor, but the overall experience was pleasant.

    Prepared as a cold brew, the flavor was refreshing, light, a bit acidic and salty, balanced with a dryness that offered a hint of cherry. I would have preferred a stronger flavor, however, and did not like the slight bitterness expressed at the finish.

    As a cold brew, this roast presented as bright, acidic, and woody with a touch of sweetness. However, I did not like how the acidity lingered languidly at the finish.

    This roast struck me as quite dry with an subtle walnut flavor and a nice acidity. There was a slight tendency towards bitterness at the end of each sip, otherwise the flavor was consistent.

    This coffee had a weaker flavor profile than I was expecting. There was a nice, high, clean initial flavor, but it did not round out after the initial taste. The flavor hinted of chocolate, faded quickly, and finished with a slight bitterness. I would recommend using extra beans if you prefer a fuller flavor.

    The flavor is a bit high and dry on it own, maintaining a stable taste throughout sipping. As a latte, the flavor presents as more full with an interesting nuttiness.

    It has a darker roast taste (I prefer a lighter roast), starts rich and falls off a bit towards the end of the sip. The flavor profile tilts slightly towards sweet with a touch of bitterness. It makes a nice espresso. I really appreciate the company social and environmental responsibility!

    Lightly flavored, low aroma, with a bit of a lively citrus undertone. It did not have cocoa and caramel flavors as advertised on the package, so I will need to revisit with another tasting.

    This prepackaged honey and coffee blend had a very strong honey flavor (actually a bit too sweet for me), but the coffee flavoring was a bit muted. When I am at work, without cream available, I keep some condensed milk on hand to sweeten. This honey/coffee blend is even more handy because nothing else is needed! I tried the latte, cafe cubano, and cacao and they all presented as similarly flavored to me.

    I want to love these single serve bags because they are so convenient, but so far, they have not been my favorites. This one was weak even when brewed according to instructions and felt too flat. I might try this as cold brew next time and see if that works better.

    Compared to other single serve immersion coffees, this could be considered great, but I feel like it just doesn't brew quite strong enough. The flavor is high, dry, and consistent, but also a bit weak. I am curious to try it again, prepared as a cold brew.

    Deep notes, but needed cream to balance. Consistent flavor that did not deliver as strong of a punch as I was hoping. It has a nice, thick and smooth feel, which may be attributed to the chicory root fiber listed as an ingredient. The finish was a bit bitter.

    Each sip opens with a light sweetness, moves to hints of caramel and chocolate, but unfortunately ends with a pervasively bitter finish. I don't recommend this roast for cold brew. I am curious to see if a different brewing method would depress the bitterness.

    This was my first time trying steeped bag coffee (I used hot water brewing method). This brew, unfortunately, came across as weak and bland. It was a smooth, even drink with low acidity and no bitterness, but limited flavor.

    The flavors in this roast trends a bit more dark. The flavors are also relatively muted, so I recommend using extra beans to get a more robust flavor. There is a very distinctive and identifiable aroma, which may be the best feature of this roast. The the lingering and slightly bitter finish is a a bit unpleasant. If you like coffee that tastes like what you'd imagine you get at a generic American gas station then this is the roast for you!

    This is definitely better than gas station coffee, but still something I drank with a bit of a grimace. It was noticeably weakly flavored, but did not have any other negatives like bitterness or burnt.
