Hit or miss - great to try all varieties
May 12, 2019
This is great to taste the different varieties, though I wish there were around 3-5 capsules per each instead of an entire sleeve. Took off 2 stars since I didn't enjoy the taste of a couple of them.
The Colombian Single Origin is smooth and delicious.
However, the blonde espresso and the house blend. Typically enjoy Starbucks coffee from the cafes (including blonde americano, latte, pike place brewed coffee, etc.) and LOVE my nespresso pod coffees.
Both varieties I tried horribly overroasted and bitter. If you’re not a fan of Starbucks’ at-home coffee, you won’t like this - I like their cafe beverages and love Nespresso pods so wanted to try these. The bitterness seems more amplified than in their roast & ground coffee, and it's almost undrinkable without adding creamer.
I’ll stick to my Nespresso pods...
