Don Tomas Coffee Review


One of the things that I think everyone knows about me, is that I love my coffee.

My day just doesn't begin until I've had that first cup in my belly.

I wouldn't call myself a coffee snob, and I'm not really into the flavored coffees and the bells and whistles. I think I just love a good ol' cup of good coffee.  Matter of fact, I don't think there is much out there that can compare to that aroma of the first cup brewing in the morning.

The only thing I really dislike is the bitter taste that some brands have.

I was asked if I would like to review the Don Tomas brand of coffee. I couldn't say no, first because of my love for coffee and secondly because after giving the Don Tomas coffee a quick browse through their website, I was intrigued.

For over a century, four generations of the Don Tomas family has been producing high quality 100% Arabica coffee in beautiful Jinotega, Nicaragua. 

 Without a doubt, the first thing that caught my attention when I received the coffee, was that I could smell it through the box.  No kidding.  It was this amazing, delicious, coffee aroma that even caught my kid's attention.

I got the whole bean because I love grinding my own coffee in the morning.  I do buy the ground coffee too but I guess I like the whole experience of going from the package to the grinder to the coffee machine and ultimately to my mouth.

The next morning, bright and early, hubby and I had our first cup.  I don't know if there are words to describe how good this coffee smells as it's brewing, and I don't think there are equally words to describe how it tastes.

Big plus for me, NO bitterness whatsoever.  Not when I'm drinking it and not as an after taste.

But the big test came when I had a cup of black coffee.  I have never, and I will say NEVER been able to enjoy a cup of black coffee without having to put in sweetener and milk or cream.  Why?  It goes back to that bitter taste I was telling you about.

This Don Tomas coffee though?  My word!

And if you're anything like me, you like the scent of coffee at any time of the day.  I took a few beans, filled a small mason jar, popped in a tealight and lit it and Lordy......my house smells fantastic.

I have to send you over to the Don Tomas website to check out their selection of coffees.  You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.  If you're a coffee lover and would like to try out this superb coffee, you can buy some for yourself here.

I only wish I could have you all over for a cup.

Coffee is the highlight of my day! We grind our coffee daily also. I've never seen this brand in the store. We are pretty hooked on dunkin donuts coffee. Had my mama pick up 6 pounds from dunkin last Friday.
I would love to try this brand if I ran across it.

I use to drink coffee especially if I have many things to do in my office work. Coffee for me makes my mind alert and I feel good. The only thing that I had felt after a coffee drink is the bitter after taste. I will try this Don Tomas brand of coffee which you say “No bitterness whatsoever”.
