Any feedback? I'm a sucker for "Artsy Packaging" and often make knee jerk purchases ....but I didn't.Is it any good ? Thanks

    This is in the red and gold can, right? It is probably my most favorite specialty coffee sold at Trader Joe's. I like the way the beans are roasted. Somewhat lower temperature for a longer time. I believe there is some sort of flavoring in the product, but the taste is very good.

        Yes, I always drink my coffee black, but I would imagine that this coffee would take to milk a lot better than most coffees. It has a rich, complex flavour that is likely improved a bit with milk. It's around $5-6 a can, and certainly worth a try. I'd love some now, but can't get it where I live (in Tokyo). Have to wait until my next visit to SF!
