This fine coffee received an excellent 91 point review from coffee expert, Kenneth Davids! Here is what he said:
Rich-toned, sweetly spicy. Brown sugar, gardenia, pink peppercorn, crisp pear, oak in aroma and cup. Crisp, roundly sweet in structure; velvety mouthfeel. The flavor-saturated finish consolidates to caramelized pear in the short and pink peppercorn in the long. Coffeereview.com, November 2017 Read the full review here
The pinnacle of our non-flavored coffees, Christmas Blend 2017 is made with 6 different beans, including a special Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, Kenyan AA and more. Your whole family will enjoy the festive notes of citrus and blueberry, and smooth malt-toned chocolate aftertaste.
I like all the Christmas coffee offerings, Christmas Blend included. It's a treat to be able to rotate the different flavors!
I am not a fan of flavored coffee beans, I usually prefer to buy regular beans then add flavored creamer, but wow this stuff was great! The flavor didn't taste chemically like other brands I've tried. I brought it to work and every pot I made was gone practically before I made it back to my desk! It was so good I drank it black.
This smells amazing. However I do have a hard time with artificial and reacted to this blend.
We tried this coffee for the first time around Christmas and loved the aroma and taste.
I love this coffee, I can't wait to try more! Jingle Java is what I want but its seasonal, so when it goes on sale, I will buy them out!
This Jingle Java coffee is fabulous! Smells so delicious and taste delicious too! Such a treat!
This coffee is excellent, as are all the others. I must confess, though, that I prefer Jingle Bell Java.
Love the Christmas Blend.
Awesome! We love it, great flavor
This is a most excellent coffee blend. It goes well on a cold winter's morning and especially Christmas morning. Well done!
The Monks have really outdone themselves with this majestic coffee!
Have you thought about trying Mystic Monk Coffee and wondered if it really was any different or worth spending perhaps a little more ? YES!! My favorite is Java Jingle ! I bought mire as soon as I got half way through my first bag so I would not run out . I have also tried the Paridiso which is also a very good cup of coffee! Enjoy I know I do :)
Wow, there’s a lot going on with this blend-a harmony of complex flavors with a smooth finish. Lovely aroma.
Had my first cup of Christmas Blend this morning. It's fullbodied and rich. A slight dryness at the end. The Monks always do a good job.
My husband loves this coffee. He said it's best coffee he's ever tasted!
I absolutely enjoyed this coffee. It was a great smell brewing and even better when I drank it!
This coffee was amazing!! You got to try it.
Received my Christmas Blend last week and passed out to some office mates. They've given rave reviews! I knew from just the smell upon opening the box that it was going to be special coffee. My spouse and I couldn't stop drinking the Jingle Bell Java - just have a little left, and the nearly empty bag makes me a little sad. It's deep and smooth and not overly "scented". Just wonderful. Even the empty mugs in the sink smell nice - Makes washing them a pleasure! Thank you for the terrific products and the great service (my original order is floating around the USPS somewhere...you got a new shipment to me right away - Thank you!)
Ordered for hubby for Christmas. Then ordered a 2nd bag. Love this coffee. Flavorful, smooth. You hear Mmmm Mmmmm every morning. So glad we discovered Mystic Monks!! Our favorite!!! Wish it were available year round.
Excellent flavor , so smooth. nice intensity and aroma. Loved Jingle Bell Java ,a fun brew for the Holidays!
This is by far my favorite flavor so far. I'm part of the flavor of the month club so I added this to my order and am so happy I did. This will definitely be on my reorder list year after year.
We love the Christmas Blend. We order it every Christmas along with the Jingle Bell Java. They are both excellent!
We order the Christmas Blend and Jingle Bell Java every year. They as hands down the two best coffees we've ordered from anyone.
Didn't seem as flavorful as last year. The small free Jingle bell java was WAY better.
The Christmas blend has a wonderful flavor that I wish was available all year round! This is our first time trying Mystic Monk coffee, and we will definitely be back for more!
I loved this particular blend. This is a bit more subtle than Jingle Bell Java (which is a fine blend in its own right), so those who want a holiday coffee with flavors not quite as strong as Jingle Bell Java should try Christmas Blend.
I have often considered purchasing Mystic Monk coffee....and am I glad I finally did! Christmas Blend has now become my family's personal favorite of all coffees. It's smooth and strong from the first pour to the end. I highly recommend giving it a try!
This is the best coffee I've ever had, period. Round, full flavor; strong body, but very smooth. No bitterness or astringency at all.
We made the Christmas Blend coffee over the holiday and everyone loved it! Great aroma, body and flavor!
Very good tasting coffee. I hope to purchase again.
Very smooth and flavorful, without the flavor being overwhelming! So easy to have a second cup. We enjoy this so much every year!
Really, really like the smooth taste of this coffee. No bitterness at all. Would definitely order this again. Thank you Mystic Monk!
Christmas coffee and hot chocolate was a gift for my daughters. They and their husbands love your products. Everything about my order was A++. Keep up the great work. I will certainly be back for more of your wonderful products.
A few days before Christmas, I ordered a small bag of Mystic Monk Christmas Blend for my brother several states away. He loved it so much, he ordered a copy of “Biblical context of the Liturgy of the Mass” after just 2 cups in 1 morning. After the 4th cup, he wrote to ask me if buying and/or drinking the coffee comes with any indulgences. Perhaps one should not drink 4 cups in 1 morning. On a slightly more serious note, as we grew up in a Carmelite parish, he was happy that sale of the coffee helped support the Carmelite Brothers! He was interested in Carmelite spirituality and asked for directions to websites for more enlightenment on that subject. Nevertheless, even though he loved the coffee that much, I think 4 cups in 1 morning is overindulgence!
We have enjoyed the Cowboy and Mystic Monk blend. The Christmas flavors were gifts. I have not heard from those who received them. I have been very pleased with the fast service after submitting an order. Blessed Nrw Year.
The Christmas blend was very enjoyable to serve during the Christmas break when my children were home visiting! They enjoyed it and we would make 2 pots each morning! It smelled and tasted yummy and the hot coffee warmed us up on these frigid days of winter!
My Son-in-law and Daughter just love your coffee! Makes a great gift!
Bought this coffee as a gift and they loved it! Delivery was quick and the coffee was a big hit!
The site was very easy to navigate, and there was a good description of each item. Although the order did get delivered one day later than was originally estimated, it still arrived in plenty of time for Christmas. I was a little disappointed that I could not split an order and have items go to different addresses, but it was okay. I plan to order again from the monks whenever I can.
Thank you for the quick delivery of the coffees. I had unexpected delays and was unable to get down to my Mom's before Christmas but wanted her to receive a gift from me in the meantime. She loves all the flavors. It really saved me. Holly
Delicious, well-rounded coffee for any month. Will order again!
I sen this as a gift and am waiting to her
I sent this as a gift to family. They loved it.
I always get extra to give as gifts, and because I usually have an extra cup in the afternoon. It is just great - you can read about the tone, and aroma and highlights of flavors, etc. - and it is all true - but the bottom line is, it is one of the finest coffees you can drink.
This is the first time ordering the Christmas Blend and WOW! It is delicious. I took it to work and everyone loved it. Get some - you will not be disappointed. I'm tempted to keep the other bags I ordered to give as gifts!!
This is definitely the finest coffee my wife and I have enjoyed through the years. It’s bold, but not overpowering or burnt, like so many so-called “premium” coffees.
As soon as I opened the package, a splendid aroma of good coffee spread out into the whole room! This will be my go to place for Christmas gifts next year too. Thank you, Brothers!
Loved this coffee, highly recommend it. Get it! :-)
My title says it all. God bless these Wyoming Carmelite Monks. And thank you for your coffee!
A friend brought Jingle Bell Java shots to our Bible study. I decided to order the ground coffee both Jingle Bell Java & Christmas Blend.
Enjoy them both. Good coffee. My husband doesn’t drink coffee but he lived the aroma of the Java. Will be a repeat customer
good coffee - yum
Gave as a gift and I assume everyone liked it.
Wonderful smooth flavor. Very enjoyable.
You know how you forget some things from one year to the next? Well, I did remember that the Christmas Blend was good, but not this good. We couldn't wait until Christmas day, so we started drinking this coffee this week in preparation for the Holy Day, and I'm sure glad we did, because now we are truly in the Christmas spirit. We may even share some of this coffee with our family!
I am giving the Christmas Blend as a Xmas gift. But I have tried and loved the Jingle Bell coffee
I have not received my order yet.
This was a gift, and the recipient was very pleased with it.
The Christmas blend was delicious
Love this blend
This blend is dark and rich. Very good on early mornings in winter.
Great tasting brew.
Coffee will be in my husband's stocking on Christmas morning. Will give you a review then.
The best coffee to wake up to!!
I ordered them as gift. My family loves this coffee.
Wonderful coffee! I haven't had a bad cup from Mystic Monk yet!!
I myself don't drink coffee but the people I ordered it for like it. The packaging is pretty and festive. They shipped it so the items were protected. I'm satisfied!
I've been a coffee drinker for many years and this Christmas blend is on the top of my list. It is smooth, rich tasting coffee but not too strong. I really love it. I hope it is available after the Christmas season is over. Also, the price is right. Great job
It does not feel like Christmas until our Mystic Monk Christmas coffees arrive.!
The Christmas Blend is such a smooth cup of coffee.
The aroma of Jingle Java on Christmas morning is so welcome !
I have been drinking the Christmas blend everyday. It's mild blend for me, because I drink my coffee without cream nor sugar, however it's rich in flavor. I also buy whole beans and grind it myself.
My husband loves this coffee and all the other varieties he has tried. This order is part of his Christmas present and I know he will love it! I don’t drink coffee but MM has great teas too.
It is an amazing seasonal coffee. It helps with the spirit of Christmas! I have truly enjoyed every Roast from Mystic Monk Coffee.
This was purchased as a gift. I have been buying this and other Mystic Monk coffees for my son for quit a few years and he always asks for them for Christmas. That would tell me he would give it five stars. He loves your coffee.
The minute the bag was opened it really smelled like Christmas. I felt like baking cookies! I felt like trimming the tree! Instead we sat down and had a cup. Very relaxing, very smooth and the smell is wonderful! The smell of the Christmas Blend and the Jingle Bell Java filled our house and lasted for hours. Truly wonderful beginning to the holiday season! These Monks really know what they are doing A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Coffe was significantly less flavorful than expected. I got this with Jingle Bell Java which is such a treat for me. However I did want to try something different.
So glad to be able to get this wonderful seasonal coffee in both regular and decaffeinated varieties. Had my first cup of the decaf today, and it was smooth and flavorful. Glad we got a backup bag, so it will last through the WHOLE Christmas season!
I don't drink coffee. I bought it for a gift. The person requested you coffee.
I purchased the Christmas blend coffee as a gift for my son. Mystic Monk coffee is his favorite. He will be very happy.
Mystic Monk has yet to disappoint! The order arrived quickly, and the Christmas Blend has quickly become a favorite!
Strong, full-flavored coffee. You'll detect a little chocolate, but you might want to add some sugar too. I drink some Mystic Monk coffees black like my favorite, Hermit's Bold, but I like a little sugar with others such as this 2017 Christmas Blend. Very happy with this coffee.
Box was intact, contents packed neatly, and arrived well before I expected. Going to be great for my Secret Santa! Thanks, Mystic Monk Coffee!
A blessed and fruitful Advent to you, brothers in Christ.
We have purchased this coffee to give as Christmas gifts this year, and were delighted to have received our first order so quickly. The Christmas Blend smells heavenly, so we placed a second order to give to several others, as well as to save a package for ourselves to celebrate Christmas.
