This fine coffee just received an excellent 91pt review from coffee expert, Kenneth Davis! Here is what he said:
" Rich, roast-rounded. Almond, dark chocolate, strawberry guava, rhododendron-like flowers, orange zest in aroma and cup. Mild, sweet-toned acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The chocolate-framed finish is quietly resonant and deeply sweet, with continued hints of flowers." - Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview.com, November 2016
Crafted using the best Arabica beans of the season, Christmas Blend 2016 has festive notes of citrus and blueberry, with a smooth malt-toned chocolate aftertaste.

I love Monks' Christmas Blend coffee....but then, I love all Monks' coffees an teas
The flavor is smooth and rich - great way to start the day especially for the holidays.
A good morning blend.
I enjoy the flavor of this coffee. A little dark for my taste roast-wise (I'm a true light roast drinker) but the flavor is fantastic!
Have open it yet. I know i do not like the thinkgiving blend.
great coffee - illbuy aain
Last year I gave Jingle Bell Java coffee as a gift and it got rave reviews, so this year I bought a selection of Christmas coffee and Teas to give as gifts to friends and family, everything smells amazing, the decaf coffee was for me and it tastes perfect, rich and flavorful. Christmas shopping done and glad I can help support the monastery, Merrry Christmas to all!
This is a coffee to be savored; rich, complex and deeply satisfying. It is the best of a superb offering of coffees and one can only hope it will become available year round.
I bought this as a gift for someone and have not given it to her yet. Hopefully she will like it!
It's OK. I like a little bit stronger, and can buy more if the price is a little cheaper.
It's just ok. I would like to have had it more robust
Last month I did order two of the Christmas blend coffees. The package was very festive and exactly what I wanted. Both of these coffees will be given as Christmas gifts and I know the people receiving them will be as pleased with the taste of the coffee as well as the package relating to the season of Christmas
I can't say anything about the Christmas blend; I'm waiting till Christmas!
But if it's anything like the Thanksgiving blend, I'm in for a treat!
It was well received at the family table this November holiday!
Smooth and rich, no bitterness. No more grocery store coffee! Keep up the good work MM!
This bold coffee blend is perfect for Christmas morning. A perk me up after a long night of wrapping and getting ready for Santa's visit.
Excellent! As with your other coffees we've enjoyed, it is without any bitterness, and yet is a strong, hardy roast! Great for the holidays....our guests loved it too.
I first purchased this coffee several years ago and introduced several friends to Christmas Blend and Mystic Monk Coffees. This blend continues to be my favorite. I am always excited to see it offered again.
Just received my Christmas Blend coffee. It is as delicious as all my other Mystic Monk coffees that I have ordered.
Mystic Monk is my favorite coffee, I love it!
Love this coffee. Amazing aroma and flavor.
I've had this before and really like it.
tried the new Christmas Blend after Thanksgiving dinner and dessert...doesn't get any better than that! Delicious!
Yummy, as expected.
I am giving this as a present for Christmas so won't know for a while. I am sure he will like it.
Wonderfully aromatic and smooth. Subtle mix of flavors. I am never disappointed. I ordered this for Christmas gifts and only 1 bag for myself. I will have to order more.
Comforting and tasty without any bitter aftertaste.
We loved the coffee. All 4 of them and what can I say about Breakfast Blend but my favorite. We drink nothing but Mystic Blends. Bless All of You
I'm a repeat buyer on this, 3rd year, I think. Always enjoyed it, but right now I'm drinking the Thanksgiving Blend, being the week of Thanksgiving, and it is excellent. I won't be getting to the Christmas Blend for a couple of weeks.
Made my first cup of this coffee.
It is delicious and smooth.
Shared another cup with a friend who went bonkers over it.
I may just buy him his own bag of Christmas Blend beans, since he loved it.
Just got it in the mail yesterday 11/21/16 and couldn't wait to open it so I did and as soon as I opened it, the Aroma of it smelled so rich and inviting so I did try it and I loved it so today everyone in my house tried it and they all liked it thank you Mystic Monk Coffee. And God bless you all
Truth be told I ordered this coffee just to have enough to get free shipping, but I'm surprised how good it is. It is one of the smoothest coffees I have ever drank and the flavor is just right - not too weak or too strong.
The beans arrived on time and securely packaged.
Although I have not yet brewed this coffee, the fragrance of the beans is addictive so surely brewed cups will be luscious.
Christmas Blend I have tasted this morning.Very good coffee,the best i had so far.Going to get some more.
I have ordered this flavor for several years and always enjoy the supurb quality and outstanding aroma and hints of several flavors. Highly recommend!
This coffee is the best brand I have ever tasted. I never had a cup of coffee that was so smooth. No bitterness or bitter after taste. Just great tasting coffee
Superb coffee! This makes a delicious treat after a meal, and ive found that it really stands up well in milk too. I do wish I could get it during the year too, its just a really good roasted coffee. not some burnt sludge like some things I've tried. Highly recommend it!
I'll admit that I've had every Christmas Blend since 2008... Sooo I couldn't wait until Christmas to try this!!! When I opened the bag there was an AMAZING aroma of berries and a bit of chocolate. I made it in the French press and it was very complex, with fruit notes and a medium body and very good aftertastes. Going to get some more for Christmas (and hope I don't drink it before!)
This is really good smelling coffee. I just bought it and haven't had the chance to drink it yet but I bought it because I DO know how good coffee smells. After I have a cup tomorrow I will again write a review, which I'm sure will be a good one! I've never seen this before. I live in Montana and it's nice to come across something really good. Thank you!
Strong pleasant and sweet aroma, delicious fruity taste, and a little bit smokey aftertaste. All in all a good coffee. (Christmas Blend 2013)
This is my favorite. (Christmas Blend 2013)
I can taste apricots in it! Very delicious.
I've tried every Mystic Monk Christmas Blend and so far I've liked it every year. I either drink my coffee black from a french press (when I have the time) or from the drip machine with milk most mornings. I liked this coffee because it was smooth but not 'flat'. I plan on brewing some to serve with dessert after Christmas lunch this year.
