I received this amazing variety of coffee from Westrock
to sample for myself. I was so excited when I opened the box and got a good look at everything they had sent. There are so many delicious coffees it's amazing. The first coffee we tried was the K cup Rawanda select reserve Dark roast. It captures the most desirable attributes of Rwandan coffee. With a full-bodied, long-lasting cup, it boasts the rich flavor of smoky cedar with hints of black currant. From the dry fragrance of crisp apple to the wet aroma of light lemon, the coffee is sure to delight the senses of the adventurous palate. This is a lovely coffee that will keep your motor running. We had one cup each and it kept us awake and alert without that icky jittery feel. This flavor is so good and loved by my boyfriend I decided to be nice and save the dark blend for him in the morning.
I have been drinking the Meza Morning Blend K Cups myself and will start drinking the dark roast again once I open the bag of the ground beans or whole beans. I will save the easy to use K Cups for him while I drink the other K Cups.
The Meza Morning Blend is perfect for me. It has a unique combination of flavors that revitalize the senses. Once brewed, the initial subtle notes of fresh clove found in the dry fragrance slowly develop into a bold nutty aroma. This exceptional mix of invigorating taste is captured as the hints of vanilla mingle with the strong flavor of brown sugar. I enjoy it with a touch of cream or even black. It is smooth and delicious with no funky aftertaste or weird bite to it. It's amazing and it sells at an awesome price for that matter. You can buy this medium roast whole bean, ground or in a 12pk of kcups for $9.00 or you can find it at one of your local store for an incredible price too. I saw on Westrock facebook page that people are finding the kcups at Krogers 80ct for $29.99!!! That truly is an amazing price.
The Meza Medium blend is my personal favorite of the Westrock coffees. It seems to be my go to now. I recommend it to anyone who loves a wonderful medium blend coffee. I just add a touch of cream.
The Muraho espresso Blend that I received allows the senses to indulge in the sweetness of nature by focusing on those found in both fruit and flower. Once ground, this coffee draws on the soft floral fragrance of lavender and, upon brewing, blossoms into the syrupy fullness of apricot.
Their Kivu Bold has been crafted to perfection in order to balance both the sweet and smoky attributes of this coffee. Hints of walnut are found in this dry fragrance, which nicely compliments its wet aroma of brown sugar. The complexity of flavor carries effortlessly throughout the medium-bodied cup and long-lasting finish
also has a very cool gift box that is perfect for any coffee love and really affordable for $30 it includes: Two mugs and Two 12 oz. bags of African coffee.
I think that is an amazing price. Seriously I have paid $15 just for a mug alone so to get 2 plus 2 bags if coffee is so worth it. Westrock sent me a mug with my coffee package and I LOVE it. I tend to be pick about my mugs. If you are a coffee love like me then you know what I mean. It has to be durable and have that perfect feel when it's snug in the palm of your hands. These mugs are just that and as a cherry on top it has an elephant on it. Anyone who knows me knows my favorite animals are elephants so this mug has found a special place in my heart as well as on my shelf.
