Starbucks® India Estates Blend
Wonderfully chocolatey and herbal
I had never tried Indian coffee before so I didn't know what to expect from this coffee. It blew me away. I look forward to more offerings from India if this is an indication of what Indian coffee is like.
This coffee is very chocolatey and herbal. I'm vegan so I paired this coffee with organic dark chocolate peanut butter cups and that was a great pairing. My partners paired this coffee with a double chocolate brownie and they loved it. If you like chocolate then you will like this coffee.
This coffee sits firmly in the middle of the medium roast category. I'm a Starbucks Coffee Master and I am very impressed by the roasting of this coffee. So often a medium roast coffee will have strong roast profile aromas and flavors. Some people interpret this as a "burnt" smell/flavor. This coffee exhibits no roast aromas or flavors. It takes a great degree of skill by the roaster to achieve this.
This is a wonderful coffee.

worth a try
I was really looking forward to sampling this new blend but I must admit I was slightly disappointed. I found it tending toward the bitter side and definitely more earthy than I like my coffee. That being said, its still worth a try, and it was clearly a matter of preference and not one of quality. For those that like a bolder, earthier blend I think this will be a great hit and become a favourite.
