Equal Exchange Coffee Review

Mambo Sprouts recently gave me the opportunity to try some Equal Exchange coffee. Equal Exchange is a company that supports small farmer co-ops with sustainable farming practices providing customers with high-quality and organic coffees, teas, chocolates, and snacks from around the world.

I was given both the Organic Love Buzz and Organic French Roast to try. I admit I am not a big coffee drinker. I have my occasional iced coffee and mocha but I am by no means a coffee expert. Still I was eager to try this stuff because I am however the person that purchases and prepares coffee for a self proclaimed coffee connoisseur, my husband. If there is anyone who is going to give me a no holds barred honest opinion about coffee it's him.

Organic Love Buzz is a combination of Equal Exchange's Full City and French Roast coffees. It is a coffee for those that love the taste of coffee. A dark roast with a complex flavor and bitter aftertaste. Even though I am not a big coffee drinker I do love the smell of brewing coffee. This stuff smells amazing! How does it taste? It was a little strong for more liking, this stuff has a kick, but then again I am not the coffee expert. So what did he think about this coffee? In his words " Man, this coffee is good! Where did you get this stuff??!!" That's right this coffee was rated an A+ by the coffee authority in my household. He described it as having a slight fruity and dark chocolate flavor. I am sure I will be buying this coffee in the near future.

Organic French Roast is another dark roast. It is not as strong and bitter tasting as Love Buzz but still has that intense flavor. I actually preferred this one. I found it smooth with a little sweetness to it. It makes some really yummy iced coffee! My husband also enjoyed this coffee. He did say it wasn't as good as Love Buzz but it was still high quality good tasting coffee.

These Equal Exchange coffees along with a variety of others can be purchased online or in supermarkets and natural food stores nationwide. If you are lucky enough to find them in a store near you, you can find money saving coupons to use on your purchase by visiting Mambo Sprouts online.
