As we start to get towards the end of the year, I thought it would be a good idea to do a brief roundup of the best coffee beans I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on this year. Some of the coffee beans on the list may not be to your liking, and that’s fine, coffee is subjective, we each have our tastes and preferences.
The idea behind this post was to open the door to some new types of coffee which you might not have tried before and coffee that easily accessible for everyone. It’s a BIG coffee world out there, go on, live a little and try something new.
Good Tasting Coffee Beans – Some Great Finds From Supermarkets Shelves! (Updated 2018)
Below are some of best coffee beans that I can’t get enough of this year, these are just regular beans found on most supermarket shelves and ideal for brewing with daily. They are price pretty reasonably and aren’t the most expensive coffee beans in the world!
Currently, I’m on a fresh bag of Peet’s – my second bag, I may add. I’ve tried a lot more varieties coffee throughout the year, but the below picks are the coffee beans that are worth mentioning, and I recommend you give a try.
Peet’s Whole Bean Coffee Ethiopia Yirgacheffe
This is probably one of the creamiest and smoothest coffee I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. This whole bean coffee is a dark roast and originates from Ethiopia, in the Yirgacheffe region to be precise. Personally, I get a lot of citrus and floral notes with this coffee with a slight hint of chocolate. If you want to taste a dark roast coffee from the premier growing region in Ethiopia, I recommend you give this one a try! You can find Peet’s Whole Bean Coffee Ethiopia Yirgacheffe at Amazon.
Koffee Kult Dark Roast Arabica Coffee
If you’re looking for a good budget coffee, you should take a look at Koffee Kult. As soon as I opened the bag, I had an instant feeling that I would love this coffee. The beans are oily and fresh, and the aroma is awesome. With this bag, I get a heavy body with a lot of smooth cinnamon notes, coupled with a surprising bright finish. If you haven’t tried any of Koffee Kult’s whole coffee beans from their large selection before, this is a great place to start. You can find Koffee Kult Dark Roast Arabica Coffee at Amazon.
Ethiopian Sidamo Guji Natural Coffee
This is another Ethiopian coffee that’s found its way onto my best coffee beans list. Apparently, these beans are roasted immediately before packaging – I believe them! As soon as you open the bag, you’re hit with a lovely heavy coffee aroma. The Ethiopian Sidamo beans have been grown in the Kaffa region of the Sidamo province of Ethiopia. On tasting, I get earthy, cherry, sweet notes with a wine-like aroma. I think the wine aroma caused from the sun drying process when the beans are being prepared. You can find Ethiopian Sidamo Guji Natural Coffee at Amazon.
Cafe Don Pablo Gourmet Organic Coffee
If you’re looking for high-quality organic coffee that won’t break the bank I recommend that you take a look at Cafe Don Pablo Gourmet Coffee. This offering is Honduran coffee from the Marcala region, and it is 100% organic. No chemicals have been used in the growing and preparation process. Notes include a deep rich chocolaty flavor, and a clean finish with hints of cocoa, honey, and caramel. You can find Cafe Don Pablo Gourmet Organic Coffee at Amazon.
Magnum Coffee Jamaican Blue Mountain Blend
This blue mountain coffee is the last on my list. The Magnum Coffee is unbelievably smooth, mellow with no sharp edges and has a great aroma – the taste is out of this world! This particular Jamaica Blue Mountain Blend is a medium roast. I had this sent to me as a gift and to be honest I wouldn’t have tried it otherwise, I’m glad I did! You can find Magnum Coffee Jamaican Blue Mountain Blend at Amazon.
