My favorite coffee. And I am a coffee snob. For years I bought only at Starbucks, had my own little grinder so it was always fresh. Then I bought the Toddy Cold Brew Coffee System and didn’t want to waste a $15 bag of Starbucks coffee on my first try, just in case it turned out to be a mistake. Well, the Toddy Cold Brew Coffee System wasn’t a mistake and neither was the Cafe Bustelo. I now buy nothing but Cafe Bustelo Coffee, and get mine at the big superstore for under $4 for the entire can. Let me do the math for you, that saves me $11 each time. Add that up over a year and see what I get to buy myself! Now, why did I originally buy Cafe Bustelo? Because if you look at any TV show all the cool people have a can of Cafe Bustelo in the kitchen background. I want to be one of the cool people. I am shallow like that. So, whatever Cafe Bustelo is paying for product placement obviously works on some of us.
I am horrible at giving a description of a flavor but I will give it a shot. This is BOLD coffee, and if you don’t like bold, I don’t think you would like this. But it is also very smooth, not bitter. A lot of my friends now have the K-cup coffee makers, and sadly Cafe Bustelo does not come in a K-cup format – yet. But if you have the attachment to the K-cup you might want to try this coffee, you may end up saving yourself a lot of moolah on the prepackaged K-cups. And with that savings you can treat yourself to something special!
