"Additional Reviews of all of the types we have recieved so far"
Updated Reviews: Garunda Blend: Contains Tobacco notes, and you can definately smell it. I cannot stand cigarette or cigar smell so this was a big no on smell alone. I took one little taste and it was not mything at all. My husband says it had a kick, and wasn't bad, but as non tobacco users, its not something we would seek out again. I will be looking to pass the second bag along to a friend. Espresso Forte: Great smell, very tasty. Very strong, and flavorful. My husband doesn't normally like espresso, but he also enjoyed this one. Second favorite so far Organic French Roast: Classic, good, flavor was to be expected. Middle of the pack so far. Gaia Organc Blend: Stronger than the others (except the espresso), nice dark taste. however, the smell is not as appealing as some of the others.

"So far so good, but we just started it"
I just started my subscription after winning the contest. Our first batch of beans for December is the Arabica Mocha. My husband and I are avid coffee drinkers, but he will actually drink it black, so I enlisted him to help me review it (I usually drown my coffee in milk). This particular blend was on the sweeter side. My husband felt it worked as a dessert coffee, or would be good to dip doughnuts in. I think it went really well mixed with chocolate milk since it had that natural mocha flavor. The smell was amazing, but I've always been partial to the smell of coffee, even before I started drinking it. The packages are a lot bigger than I expected and I think we will certainly get value out of it.
