3.0 out of 5 starsSmells like cinnamon hazelnut but...
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on January 12, 2023
The smell is there, the taste is not. I was hoping to experience the equivalent of an old Second Cup flavour. Don't get me wrong, this coffee was lovely, but it doesn't taste like cinnamon hazelnut. It didn't really seem to have a flavour at all. I used it only as I ground it fresh.
The smell is wonderful for this coffee and it promises a good cup. The grind brings forth the aromas of pecan, fresh coffee beans and sweetness but nothing to worry about until you take your first sip. Even though I use spring water, my first sip was overpowered by artificial sugar and the nuttiness that I was looking for in this type of coffee, was gone. Rest assured, I followed the guidelines of coffee/water ratio to make a good coffee but still, the sweetness was omnipresent in my cup. It is not a bad thing mind you for a desert coffee but maybe not in the morning for me...in sum, i would still buy it if I would have nothing else to compensate with.
I purchased this after thoroughly enjoying their coconut macaroon flavoured coffee which was excellent. Unfortunately, I couldn't put my finger on the flavour in this coffee. It was definitely flavoured, but to me didn't taste anything like butter pecan. It's still enjoyable; just not what I had been expecting though.
I've had quite a few different brands of coffee and "Java Works" is one of my favorite 🥰 The coffee is rich and flavorful and I love it. Kudos to you Java Works for making great coffee!!! Worth every penny!!!!!!!
