    Admittedly, I sometimes taste coffee with low expectations just to grade it. This was definitely the case here. But I do also enjoy a cup of decaf just to unwind. For a hotel decaf coffee, this fits the bill. It is nice and light, easy sipping with low acidity and non-controversial flavor. A touch of nuttiness and very light lemony flavor. Not bad!

    Cupping Method:At check-in at Townplace Suites in Albany New York

    A passable but not really tasty hotel coffee that I grabbed in the lobby of a Townplace Suite (Marriott umbella). Dark but not overly bitter, low acidity and little bit of plum. I drive a lot while drinking coffee and a decent litmus test for hotels is how much of the cup I finish. I made it through 1/3rd of this one. I can’t totally tell if “ A Moment to Breathe” is actually a coffee brand or just something Marriott puts on generic coffee related products.

Editor's Overview

Marriott's "A Moment to Breathe" coffee brand seems to be an emerging presence in their offerings, though its precise positioning remains unclear. I have encountered the “A Moment to Breathe” brand frequently during recent work-related travels, indicating a notable presence in Marriott's establishments. Despite its frequent appearance, the actual quality of the coffee is just okay, not particularly standing out among other options. Hotel coffee…

Interestingly, "A Moment to Breathe" is also seen alongside other coffee brands like Royal Cup at Marriott hotels, suggesting that Marriott isn't exclusively promoting its own brand in association. The use of the brand even extends to items like coasters, highlighting a broader marketing strategy. Philosophically, the brand's message seems appealing, but its true purpose and potential remain to be seen. Marriott may be attempting to establish a unique coffee brand, and we'll monitor its evolution to understand its impact and significance within Marriott's overall service offerings (since I'm going to be staying at Marriot's anyhow!).
