First off, a funny thing, when I was making the first pot of coffee, my husband thought maybe it had gone bad and had worms in it or something. There are white slivers/specks in the coffee grounds, which I assumed were something from vanilla beans. I hope it was, otherwise I may have made worm larva coffee! So, onto my review!
I enjoyed this coffee much more than the Melitta Cafe Collection Parisian Vanilla Ground Coffee I recently tried. Personally, I am a gold card carrying fan of Starbucks, so it shouldn't come as a suprise that I enjoyed this coffee. As a general rule, I would say if you enjoy Starbucks and you enjoy vanilla, you should enjoy this coffee. If you are not a fan of Starbucks, don't look for this coffee to be the magic sip that changes your mind.

Vanilla has a subtle flavor and an indulgent aroma that's simply made for coffee. To allow the vanilla to come through, we specially blended and lightly roasted Latin American beans. A combination of coffee artistry and culinary insight, this aromatic coffee has an understated vanilla highlight. You're in for a rare treat and an entirely new experience - a fusion of premium coffee with natural ingredients ground right in.
