The Cafe Kaldi was carefully roasted for you by Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Co. A blend of African and Latin American beans. Kaldi's lightly roast half of them, to preserve their inherent flavors and unique acidity, and darkly roast the other half to add sweetness and body. The result is a perfectly balanced cup of coffee. This coffee is bold with notes of chocolate, caramel and distinct smokiness.
we liked this a lot - it had a really good, distinct flavor but wasn't too strong/dark for the morning.
French press, no cream, no sugar. This was a better coffee than anything you would find at average restaurant or fast-food joint, but maybe I'm holding these to a standard that's too high. This was good, but no part of it excited me. It's very possible my palate isn't delicate enough to find what was in here,
Damn good cup-a-Joe, nicely balanced. Delicious flavors of caramel and roast in every sip.
Maybe not quite as bold as I would like, but is a smooth cup of coffee
Excellent daily cup, perfect balance
Our favorite blend so far. Perfectly balanced. Great morning cup.
Love the caramel flavor. Very balanced without bitter or acidic ending.
despite description, wasn't smoky at all. super smooth and perfect black
Delicious well balanced flavor with just a hint of smokiness
I have been an avid coffee drinker for almost two decades. This coffee is the best coffee I have ever tasted. My husband, who I call a fake coffee drinker due to his excessive flavored creamer and sugar usage, prefers this heavenly brew with just a bit of half and half. The coffee is smooth with no hit of bitterness even after it has been reheated.
This is pretty good! Beans looks light brown, smells was very good and fresh when I open the pack. The coffee taste was great as well: none of the burn taste of the previous coffee that was sent.
Bold smokey and very strong. Very slight hint of caramel and chocolate. Very unique. I also think those who like it will love it.
This one is great
Tastes a bit bitter for us.
Weak and not dark enough but good flavor, very mild.
I liked this roast better than Dillons blend. The color of the bean was a bit lighter than I typically go for, but the flavor is still strong without tasting burnt or bitter. (I used to live in St. Louis and always enjoyed Kaldi's coffee.)

I really enjoyed this coffee. It was one of the earthier and more well-rounded of any we've had so far. The beans are a bit deceiving - quite light in appearance - but the flavor of the dark roast beans comes through loud and clear, keeping the acidity of the lighter beans in its place. You are spot-on to say that this is a perfectly balanced cup of coffee.
It's too light and I don't like it. The flavor seems bland to me and not bold enough.
Jessica & Jeffery
Jeff finds it too acidic .
I like Kaldi coffee, especially since it reminds me of my time that I lived in St. Louis. However, this blend was just ok. It was lighter than I normally like and too high in acidity for my tastes
This is a great cup of coffee. Full and rich with no bitterness. Great on the tongue with a beautiful follow through. Highly recommended.
Not as impressive. There was a nice chocolate aroma that didn't come through in flavor. More subdued than I prefer and a little flat.
Nice smooth blend...sweet and dark, but not bitter.
Not bad, but a bit bland.
Not strong enough. Not bold or rich tasting
Another so-so experience. Not bad, but I do remember thinking more than once "I'll be glad when this is all gone." On to the next bean!!!
Too acidic for my taste. When your first thougt is "vinegar", not a good sign
Kristena & David
Slightly more flavor than Diablo blend but still not as strong as I would like. Attempting to double the normal amount I brew with to increase flavor.
Ken and Vanessa
Good overall taste. Chocolate, Carmel, smoke. Slightly too acidic for my taste
Excellent, Dark, Bold and Awakening. Perfect for those days with a long to do list!
Really enjoyed how smooth and rich it tasted.
Not sure why, maybe the chocolate but wasn't a fan of this one.
Great cup of coffee. Just the way I like it.
A bit too light for my taste.
Really great! Both dark, and a great flavor profile that isn't chocolaty.
YUM! A favorite for sure.
Kim and Tom
Prefer a very dark roast.
Excellent cup of coffee! Great complexity.
Just not a dark enough roast for our taste.
Weak. I would give zero stars if it was an option. Tastes like crappy diner coffee that has been watered down.
The roaster's label says it is a mix of dark roasted and regular roasted beans, but the overall taste is strictly a medium roast. Fruity, high acid. Not much depth that is supposed to be provided by the addition of dark beans. I had trouble tasting any sweetness or notes of chocolate.
Good as coffee, but espresso did not hold up well with milk (usually do 4 oz).
This coffee is delicious.
Perfect balance of darkness, caramel, and rich body/maltiness. I will buy more of it.
Not as dark as we typically like. Great aroma though.
Didn't not like this at all . It was a medium roast and had a odd flavor .
Perfect cup , great blend of dark and light. New Favorite and buying more because I already missing. Yep I am addicted
Did not like this one very much. Ok when you need coffee, left an after taste. May be because don't like blends
very good. one of the better ones we've tried recently.
Good! A bit too much of a smoky flavor, but all and all a good cup of coffee
This coffee was fantastic. Strong and delicious.
Tastier mix than Dillanos but would love to get back to pure dark coffees.
I liked the balanced flavor of this blend. Just a bit too bitter for me.
Solid coffee. Did not stand out, but very good nonetheless.
I'm from St. Louis. I'll always defend my home brands. Best coffee in the world.
too much of typical latin american acidicity for my taste. boldness and flavor otherwise is good
Kaldi's Coffee is a whole new level of addiction. Best tasting coffee I've ever had.
This is AWESOME! Great notes of sweet chocolate and very full flavor. Simply Wonderful.
Katie & Aaron
caramel notes are prominent
This was a fine cup of coffee, but not the best I have had. It does not have a smooth finish to it. Maybe too peppery tasting for me.
I expected this coffee to have a fuller taste, based on the description. It was good but not great.
This is a "balanced cup" as described but it tastes more like a dark roast, with a finish that seems to have a hint of chocolate.
Great taste, but not quite bold enough for me to give it 5 stars
It's a solid all-around easy drinking coffee. Not the depth of flavor I prefer, so I didn't give this another star. But I would order again.
Good overall. I'd drink it again. Not my absolute favorite, but a solid one I do like.
Bland. The only flavor I got was caramel. So I guess if you really like Werther's Originals.....
Not a fan. Came out of my machine very sour and with a light body.
This coffee is all about the caramel. I've seen so many coffees claim to have notes of caramel, but they end up tasting burnt. This one balances the caramel and the dark coffee perfectly. One of my new favorites.
