The Organic Coffee Co. Review and Giveaway

As you can see my the name of my blog, I love a good cup of coffee. Over the years, I have been able to review a variety of different coffee brands and flavors.

Last Saturday, I received four 12oz coffee bean bags from The Organic Coffee Co., which is part of the Rogers Family Company. The coffee beans I received are Hazelnut, Chocolate Almond, Hurricane Espresso and French Roast. The coffee arrived just in time, as there was a few inches of snow on the ground and there is nothing better than a hot cup of coffee on a cold winter day.

What makes organic coffee different from regular coffee? Well, all the farms that grow the coffee are organic certified; meaning all the coffee beans grown are free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides; so the beans are grown naturally, preserving all the original flavor.

I was eagerly looking forward to trying out my new coffee grinder. The first bag I opened was the
Hurricane Espresso. The tagline on the bag is, "A whirlwind of dark roasts blended to give a patent, vibrant cup with a calm aftertaste." To me there is nothing better than the fresh scent of coffee beans and the scent alone for this bag is enough to wake you up. It has a rich flavor, enough to keep a person going for hours after only one cup.

I have tired a few flavored coffees in the past, but none of them actually tasted like they're suppose to, but the Chocolate Almond Coffee smells and tastes like a Hershey candy bar, which is great if you are cutting back on your sweets. The description on the bag is, "Lightly roasted beans caresses by natural chocolate almond flavor and real bits of almonds."

While Hazelnut has never been my favorite flavor, it taste great blended with coffee. The Hazelnut coffee beans have the sweetest, smoothest taste and is my favorite from the four I reviewed. The description the bag reads, "Natural hazelnut flavor is added to our lightly roasted beans to complement, not overpower their taste."

Almost every brand is guaranteed to have a French Roast flavor and The Organic Coffee Co. has their own version, which is the best I have ever had. The description on the bag reads, "The smoky, bold taste that French Roast fanatics love."

The Rogers Family isn't new to the coffee market, as they've been roasting coffee since 1979, so they know exactly what they are doing. All of the coffee I reviewed is made from Arabica Organic Coffee. Overall, I enjoyed trying out The Organic Coffee Co. coffees smoothing flavors and I highly recommend the brand to all coffee lovers.
