I have a confession to make, I have been drinking Season’s Best Coffee (formerly known as Christmas Blend) from A Cup of Faith Coffee for 3 days before doing this review. This is normally not the way we do things here at Coffee Cup News but I couldn’t help myself. The aroma coming out of the back drew me in and I just had to try it.
A Cup of Faith Coffee was founded in 2002 out of California. They sell roasted coffee, loose leaf tea, chocolates and christian books. They are a faith based organization that focuses on high quality coffee, using their Diedrich IR-5 commercial coffee roaster, and being an encouragement to people. (A discussion around this started in the YouTube comments section.)
Season’s Best Coffee Review
When this coffee first hit my tongue, french pressed, it tasted pretty dark with chocolate notes. It had a nice flavor enveloped my whole tongue, especially for the dark roast coffee enthusiast. One of the main big drawbacks to this coffee is the lack of acidity and complexity. It is really straight forward coffee with very little to keep me interested for the long haul. Though, the three days before this tasting I was enjoying this coffee in my drip brewer (a couple times I even added cream, shhhh don’t tell anyone…). It was smooth, with a sweet chocolate flavor that I really enjoyed. I think this coffee would pair really great next to any chocolate flavored pastry or dessert.
