I purchased this and several others as gifts and as always they were well received-great aroma and taste when I was invited over for coffee. A+
I like a dark-roasted full flavored coffee. This coffee definitely fits the bill. Sometimes I drink it "half-caff" mixed with Vespers Decaf and a tall mug of that is very satisfying also.
I drink Mystic Monk Blend, from whole beans, every day and love it. The Special Edition whole beans are just that, very special. It’s smoother than the regular MM blend, and the kitchen smells great as it drips. What surprised me was how delicious it still tasted the next day after I (don’t cringe) I reheated some coffee from the day before. Nothing was lost - still smooth, full-bodied. I was delighted!
I have liked Mystic Monk in the past. This Special Edition is even smoother, richer, full mouth feel. The aroma fills the kitchen. Definitely a great coffee.
I bought this for a Christmas present, so I have not tried it. From the intoxicating aroma that was coming from the box, it is going to be a favorite.
