This coffee is a haven, it has a sweet beautiful flavor that pairs well with the medium roast. Finding good coffee in Japan is not easy, so upon finding and tasting this, I was tickled pink! Definitely try some!
I enjoy this coffee but it is a little bitter, probably due to the roast. It says it has liqueur flavoring and it is pretty apparent. You might want to lay off it in the morning, it can be a bit strong, flavor-wise.
The quality of the coffee is decent as compared to others we’ve had and the grounds are at a good fineness for hand poured drip. The ingredients themselves seem to be alright, of course there are some artificial flavors but it’s not off-putting. I’m not sure that this is an every day cup of coffee but something to treat yourself with. Perhaps after work with a shot of something extra to make it even more interesting.
I have ordered other Verena Street coffee and found them more flavorful. Cow Tipper was good coffee, but it tasted like regular coffee. I could not taste the vanilla or Carmel. There may have been a bit of coffee liqueur flavoring that overpowered the other two, but if I had not seen the package, I would have never been able to guess it was flavored coffee. My reaction, had it been a blind taste test would have been, “good, strong coffee.”
