As with most coffee, the aroma here was familiar and inviting, especially for a K-Cup, which can tend to be light in that respect while brewing. This coffee also falls within our zone for a classic cup, but we feel it is overtly bitter in taste and finish. It is a bold, full flavor coffee, so it could be many will find it perfect, but our tastes lean toward a more balanced overall experience… I made a face taking the first sip of the day with this one, so at least on my tongue, it was a bit too strong, which presented itself as a bitter taste that lasted into the finish.
