This coffee has a nice, smooth hazelnut flavor. I've had others that tasted artificial and left a bad aftertaste, but the flavor of this one tastes natural and "roasted in" as opposed to others that taste "sprayed on". I don't know how else to describe the difference. The flavor could be a bit stronger, but I'm happy with it.
I've had Kona beans that were supposed to be hazelnut flavored, but the beans were too strong and overcame the hazelnut flavor. These beans could have a little more body, but not much.
When I come home from a trip where I've been drinking god-knows-what coffee and I brew my first pot, I get excited when I smell the Lacas Hazelnut. The first sip is pure heaven!
So glad I found this online; this is the coffee for me!!
