I just got a couple new samples of beans. More reviews are just around the corner!

Here is the rather nondescript bag that all of their coffee comes in. I find it a nice touch that they put the price tag label on the bottom. It leaves the skyline packaging unblemished. Getting into the coffee, I need to make note of the price, $6.99/lb. I consider this a fantastic bargain for whole bean coffee. For me once coffee goes above the $9.99/lb threshold I really have to be committed to buying it. Anytime I can find a good coffee below that price I'm thrilled! This is one of them.
This is definitely a mild medium roast coffee. In fact it could easily be described and right down the middle. Not too mild, not too much bite, and no bitterness. Despite it's middle-of-the-road flavor it truly makes a great cup of coffee! Please don't take my description as this being a boring coffee. Every sip from the first to the last is just as enjoyable.
If you're looking for a mild medium roast coffee for your day-to-day blend this is it! Would I serve this at a party, sure! It still has great flavor and it's low cost makes it a fantastic value.
Bottom Line Rating: 4 out of 5
