Reunion Island Coffee: Review/Giveaway

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Reunion Island Coffee. All opinions are 100% mine.

Reunion Island is a wholesale specialty roaster featuring gourmet coffee, espresso and tea, including organic and Fair Trade products. Our specialty is roasting 'perfect' whole bean coffee that looks as good as it tastes, however, we are also leading the industry in developing new formats like single cup coffee pods. We are a proud supplier to many of the finest caf├ęs and restaurants in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and throughout Canada and the United States.

Reunion Island blends and roasts gourmet Arabica beans handpicked from the world’s finest growing regions. Our specialty coffees are imported from over 20 countries and offered as single origins or combined to create our signature blends, including Italian-style espresso. As a wholesale food service distributor, Reunion Island offers the coffee, tea and allied products that coffeehouses need to meet growing demand for Fair Trade, organic and other sustainable coffees. We are also the exclusive Canadian distributor for Victoria Arduino handmade Italian espresso machines.

Ahhhhh coffee, how I love thee. Coffee is an essential part of most peoples daily routine. At least I know it is in our house. Every night before bed, I get the coffee pot ready. Oh that special aroma to wake up to.

I was given the opportunity to try Reunion Island Coffee “Colombia Las Hermosas”, medium flavor. Before even opening the bag - the aroma that came from it was amazing.  Right there, I knew firstly, it was fresh, and secondly, I couldn't wait to open it and try.  The coffee was quite a surprise to me. The aroma was the first thing that drew my attention to this coffee. It was a floral-toned with hints of lemon and chocolate. The flavor was amazing for a medium coffee. Sweet, delicate and flowery, though definitely a powerful coffee. I do all my tastings black so I can get the full flavor of the coffee, but admit that after tasting this coffee, I did add a small amount of sugar and creamer. Both ways, delicious!
