I am an avid coffee drinker/coffee lover so I am open to trying variety of roasts, flavors, etc. I also tend to like "a lot" of the products I try and will choose to use them at varying times of the day or on particular occasions depending on the roast, flavor, etc. I had high hopes for the Eight O'Clock brand of "Dark Roast" coffee because I've enjoyed/appreciated all of the other varieties I have tried of the brand. This particular roast, however, was #in my opinion# absolutely HORRIBLE! It was SO very strong and to be honest, I am usually a fan of a dark roast when I need an extra "pick me up" through the day. This dark roast was just much too harsh and bitter for my taste buds so I cannot justfiy recommending it to anyone! I really am surprised that there are people that like this blend because I found it to be terrible! I wish I had not wasted the money purchasing it and have no use for the K-Cups I have left. I even tried to make a cup of this with a cup of light roast to make a cup out of equaly parts of each but the bitter/harsh taste is STILL present. Even the scent is very strong! All I can say at this point is if someone enjoys a very bitter, very strong coffee and over-bearing cup of coffee--this is the brand/blend for you! I hope this review will help someone else avoid the mistake I made in purchasing this brand/blend of K-cups so they do not waste their money as I have. ;)
