Subtle flavour October 18, 2013
Reviewer: Ray from Hillsburgh, ON Canada  
I do not like my coffee with that harsh after taste many coffee's come with, so I was very pleased with this brand as it smooth texture and subtle flavour. A very nice coffee to drink with my early morning breakfast.

Pleasantly surprised. Distinctively Africa September 28, 2012
Reviewer: Robert P from Mississauga, ON Canada  
This is our first but not last purchase from Reunion Island for my wife and I. We tried the coffee with a press-pot so far and describe it as semi-bright acidity not overpowering with a slightly light body.Keeps me desiring for more. It tastes just like it smells when fresh ground. Can't wait to taste it with other brewing methods and different grinds.We noticed the bags had best before dates only. Our only complaint (4star) is that we would like to have the roast date on bag. Maybe it's there but we could not find it. A refreshing cup of coffee from the average Joe.

Coffee as it should be! September 8, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Markham, ON Canada  
This blend is not for the faint of heart; it is robust and full of depth. Coffee as it should be -- bold, hearty, and full of wake-me-up potential.

Perfect Balance May 11, 2012
Reviewer: Linda Allbright from Orillia, ON Canada  
This is the most incredibly well balanced coffee!  I agree with another reviewer that I thought the Brazil Bahiai Blue was excellent but I have to say this coffee surpasses it. It's perfectly balanced in every way.  A real treat to drink.

I really look forward to this cup of coffee April 17, 2012
Reviewer: Robyn Hill from Vancouver, BC Canada  
I thought I had finally discovered and chosen my favorite coffee from Reunion. I thought it was the Brazil Bahia Blue. This Ethiopia Oromia seriously rivals the Brazil, I'm torn. This coffee is a perfect medium roast. It has a lovely toasty flavor without a hint of bitterness. I usually use a drip coffee maker but on a whim, I used a french press with this bean and it was spectacular!!!
