The Drink: Vanilla Hazelnut from Honey Bean Coffee
Type: Whole Bean Flavored Coffee
Overall Rating: 3.5 Out Of 5 Coffee Cups
So far this week is hazelnut coffee week at Daily Shot Of Coffee. It wasn’t anything intentional, but yesterday I review the Hazelnut flavor from N.O. Brew. This time I’m back to whole beans and trying Vanilla Hazelnut from Honey Bean Coffee. Non-hazelnut fans, don’t worry tomorrow there’s nothing hazelnut related planned.
As the coffee brewed, the vanilla-hazelnut aroma filled my kitchen. Some people might find it to be too much, but I savored the aroma, it reminded me of a candle smell.
A few minutes later, the aroma coming directly from my cup was even more intense, with vanilla dominating it.
I expected the vanilla-hazelnut to dominate the flavor too, but I was wrong. A strong nutty coffee taste controlled the my tongue. The vanilla and hazelnut flavors were kept on the edges of my tongue. I also picked up on some hints of chocolate.
One other thing that really stood out to me about this coffee was how smooth it was. There wasn’t a drop of bitterness in this coffee.
After a few cups, I was ready to say that this is one of my favorite flavored coffees that I’ve tried in a while. I’d even go as far to say that this is a coffee that even coffee purists could enjoy. For coffee drinkers who like flavored coffee, but want to get more into traditional coffee flavors, this would be a perfect coffee.
Vanilla Hazelnut from Honey Bean Coffee earned a well above average rating of 3.5 out of 5 coffee cups. I could see myself drinking a lot of this coffee suggest you give it a whirl (such an under used word) next time you’re looking for some new coffees to try.
Disclosure time! Honey Bean Coffee sent me this for review purposes. That didn’t influence my final decision. I give every coffee a fair and honest review, no matter how it got to my house. Disclosure part 2: Some of the links above are what they call affiliate links. If you click on one of those and buy coffee from Honey Bean, I’ll get a small commission, probably enough where if a few people bought via the link, I could buy a cup of coffee.
