* Peet’s Organic Alma De La Tierra Dark Roast Coffee Review *
From the box:
Alma de la Tierra is Spanish for “Soul of the Earth” and the soul of this coffee is found in the high-altitude regions of Latin America.
The aroma from this brew was delightful and bright. I enjoyed the wait while the drips entered my cup. It didn’t have a burnt smell, so it was pleasantly light, even for a dark roast. This roast scores a 5 out of 5 for presentation.
At first sip, it didn’t have any bitterness or deep-roasted character. Instead, it bordered as a medium-roast variety, and was very smooth and mellow. The package highlighted that this blend had notes of citrus and chocolate, which to my excitement, I could notice as well. This coffee scores a 5 out of 5 points for taste.
Notably, I assume that kcups often aren’t as fresh as a recent grind of beans, but this one still managed to capture the imagination with its flavor variety. I liked how it could come across as a medium-roast without the plainness that often comes with that profile. This coffee scores overall a 5 out of 5 points. It’s an excellent treat for your morning and you should check it out.
