This was a gift.  Really this was a re-gift, which was probably a re-gift again from someone who picked up the bag and didn’t notice it was whole beans.  Whatever the tortuous path, it eventually ended with me as I have a coffee grinder.  I’m not proud.

The coffee has a mild but nice aroma in the bag.  The brown colored beans and oil are consistent with the indicated medium roast.  Brewed, the coffee has a fairly strong earthy flavor with a noticeable lingering bitterness.  There’s some acid feel and tartness, especially as the coffee cools, eventually settling (and unsettling) in the stomach.

This is a milder version of a typical Starbucks coffee. For those who like Starbucks, this should be a familiar taste.  It’s drinkable black.  Personally, I’d drink this with some half and half as I normally do the few times I’m in a Starbucks.  Price  ?? – it was a gift
