400013400013B002IEVJRYA3R9H6OKZHHRJDLH4220041333238400SmoothAs coffee in a can goes, this is pretty darn good stuff. The flavor is smooth with a slight creaminess, and there's absolutely no bitterness. It doesn't exactly taste like a hot cappuccino (or even an iced one from a coffee shop), but it's still definitely coffee. There was more sweetener in this than I prefer, and I found it to be a touch too sweet. Still, for coffee in a can, this is probably about as good as it gets- no weird aftertaste, and no strange flavors.
400014400014B002IEVJRYA2EKPIN655LOW8Lisa "Lisa"0051333238400LOVE this drinkI am a coffee drinker and I like my coffee light and a bit sweet. This hits the spot. Most other brand coffees in a can tend to be more sugar and milk than coffee. This one has a strong coffee flavor. It is just right. Now if they were only in all the convenience stores. I will be ordering more of these.
400015400015B002IEVJRYA3VYKXHQDICC6philo_vance0031333152000OKI decided to try this on a cold day, so I poured it into my favorite coffee mug and nuked it until it was just the right temperature for me. The can doesn't specify whether this is supposed to be a cold drink or a hot one, so I see no problem with doing this.

I also must admit to being someone who isn't particularly fond of flavored and messed with coffee, so keep that in mind when you evaluate my review.

I wasn't impressed.

The illy Cappuccino had a very creamy, chocolatey mouth feel. It was somewhat too sweet for me, but that could be a result of heating it. We perceive sweetness differently depending upon temperature. That's why ice cream requires a lot of sugar and why little kids who love sweetness will often let their ice cream melt before they consume it--to make it seem that much sweeter. As a cold drink the sweetness might be right. That seems to be the prevailing opinion in the other reviews here, so I'll defer to their judgement.

I also detected an under-taste of some sort. I'm sorry I can't identify it for you, but I'm certain it was there and I got it on every sip. Perhaps it's just the type of cocoa used here, which I'm not used to in coffee, but I knocked off another star since I disliked it whatever it was.

The 8.45 ounce can contains 100 calories and 81 milligrams of caffeine.
400016400016B002IEVJRYA22RGEI19Z9AEVSusan Byers0041333152000It's canned coffee at its bestI don't mean to be nasty, really! Giving the product 4 stars proves that. It's convenient and if you are a confirmed caffeine addict, having one of these in your car will save the day. It's preferable by far to an over-percolated cup of joe made from stale ground beans. But it is a far cry from a well-pulled shot. If you know what you're getting and that is acceptable, I recommend this over the Starbucks Double Shot (similar product) for the following reasons: it's not as sweet, it seems lighter and less thickened by gums or fillers, and Illy beans are consistent and good if you like a dark roast. You can taste the evaporated milk, but some people enjoy that. People seem to like working for Starbucks, but remember what life was like before there was one on every street corner? Buck the trend, and try this Illy drink!
400017400017B002IEVJRYA11EIDY6DD40CSPeregrinn0051333152000Enjoyable, and less sweet than Frappuccino drinksI enjoyed this issimo coffee drink. At 100 calories, this 8.45 ounce can has almost 50% fewer calories than the 9.5 ounce Mocha Frappuccino (180 calories). I appreciate the caffeine information, which says that this small can contains 81 mg. caffeine, compared to 35 mg. in a 12 oz. Coke. The aluminum can is attractive, more energy efficient than glass, easier to handle due to its light weight and reduced breakage, and easily recycled. I don't think I will be buying those Starbucks fraps anymore!
400018400018B002IEVJRYA3GWFJ48QPA2IRJ. Weiss0021333065600Sorry, I did not care for this at all.I drink a lot of coffee. I drink lattes, cappuccinos, espressos, you name it. I have tried other packaged coffee drinks before (i.e. Starbucks Frappuccinos and Caribou Coffee) and have always found them to be very sweet, but this one from illy issimo, I thought, was very bitter. On the outside of the can it does state that cream and sugar are included, but I could not taste it. The only reason I am not giving this one out of five stars is because this is solely based on my personal taste, and there might be others out there that like a much stronger taste, and would like something like this. I also liked the packaging, as I brought this to work with me for a mid-day boost and found it easy to throw into my lunch bag.
400019400019B002IEVJRYA3U4GW06XNSI2QB. B. "B.B."0031333065600it's good...just goodtasty, sweet, smooth, savory, refreshing. a good, middle of the road, coffee beverage. There was nothing I didn't like about it, yet nothing that really stood out. Would I buy it again? Maybe.
400020400020B002IEVJRYA3CG93783LP0FOYarii0041332892800Chocolate flavor overrides the coffee flavorI like this but it tastes more like chocolate milk than coffee. The coffee flavor is bland and weak considering this is supposed to be an "Italian Espresso-Style Coffee Drink" as the can says. This tastes better (not overly sweet) than the Starbucks drinks available at grocery stores and the can is lighter to carry along in my purse. Very convenient.
399991399991B002IEVJRYA1YS1X3XF669XKJ. Ballard "movie dude"3451308355200Awesome drinkMy wife cannot get enough of these drinks. They're not as sweet as other similar drinks and they have more coffee flavor as a result. I even like them and I'm not a big coffee drinker.
399992399992B002IEVJRYAT53ZTTO707MBM. Maltbie5731338940800Thoughts from an experienced illy drinkerA little background: I own a Gaggia for illy espresso machine Gaggia for Illy Espresso Machine that works with illy single-serve pods illy iperEspresso Capsules Dark Roasted Coffee, 5-Ounce, 21-Count Capsules illy iperEspresso Capsules Medium Roasted Coffee, 5-Ounce, 21-Count Capsules. I like the flavor of illy espresso, but my favorite is still the Nespresso line of coffee Nespresso Citz D110 Espresso Machine, Silver Chrome. When I saw that Coca-Cola was distributing illy in-a-can from Denmark, I immediately thought it might be a nice cold drink for my early morning, one-hour commute into the city.

This morning I pulled two cans from the frig and drank them as I drove to work. I tasted both the "cappuccino" and the "caffe" flavors. Here are my thoughts: The coffee in these cans is nothing like what you make at home in your espresso machine--the richness is missing. illy makes a medium and a dark roast. The coffee in these cans are more like the medium roast--definitely not dark. But, bottom line, coffee in a can tastes exactly as you feared it would: Coffee with that "special" canned taste.

Comparing the two flavors that I sampled this morning, I like the cappuccino better than the caffe illy issimo Coffee Drink, Caffè, 6.8-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12). I think the cappuccino works better than the caffe as a cold drink. The cappuccino went down quickly and easily, but there was an aftertaste that I didn't quite like. Even after finishing the second coffee (the caffe without milk), I could still taste the lowfat milk and it was not fresh-tasting. I'm not used to sweetness in my espresso and the sugar in these cans made the coffee taste a bit tangy. I did not notice any bitterness in either of the flavors.

Be aware of the size of these cans: They are not as large as soda pop cans. They are narrow cans, with the cappuccino can about an inch taller than the caffe can. I mention this because I had trouble finding a place to set in my vehicle's console because they are so narrow. Your vehicle's can-holder space will be too large for these cans. You would have to wedge them in somehow to keep them from toppling.

So, as with most everything else that you buy for convenience-sake, with these coffee drinks you sacrifice flavor for handiness. If you really don't have time in the evening to put together a bottle of iced coffee for your morning commute, then the cappuccino is not a bad drink. If you like a sweet coffee and if you like milk in your coffee, then the cappuccino is not a bad choice. Personally, even though I don't have any extra time in the evening, I think I'll try to find the time to build myself an iced coffee for the morning--because I've just realized that it is very pleasant to have cold coffee to drink for my long commute, and canned coffee is not to my taste.
399993399993B002IEVJRYA13MKSASQ6YWL7Brad Willis91351296691200A delicious and relatively low calorie pick me upI really enjoy these Illy Issimo Cappuccino drinks. If you love coffee like I do, you'll find the taste to be rich and delicious. It's a terrific blend of "Italian espresso style coffee", lowfat milk, cocoa and sugar. The cocoa flavor is very subtle. It's there, but you might not know it if you weren't looking for it.

Nutritionally, each 200ml (8.45 ounce) can is 100 calories, 15 of which come from fat. It has 19 grams of carbs, 1 gram of fiber and 5 grams of protein.

I'm not saying that this is health food, but I think it's a lot better for you then a soda and definitely gives you a bit of an energy boost, although I wouldn't consider it to be an energy drink.

Illy is renown for producing some of the finest espresso in the world and the quality of this product is exactly what you would expect from a name that is almost synonymous with espresso. This product is made from 100% Arabica beans which seem to be roasted to a full city roast, or thereabouts. Illy Issimo is produced in Denmark under a collaboration between illy and Coca Cola.

Let me also be clear that my rating has nothing to do with the cost of this item. You'll have to make a value determination on your own. While I do a lot of shopping at Amazon, I purchased this item at Big Lots for less than a third of the current price at Amazon. I've also seen the price fluctuate substantially here at Amazon.

I really look forward to having a can of illy Issimo cappuccino at almost any time of the day. I highly recommend it and I think you'll enjoy it too!
399994399994B002IEVJRYAEJAGHLC675A7John Williamson "JargonTalk"4631338940800"DO NOT SHAKE"... but would it taste better if I did?Interesting beverage, this illy issimo Coffee Drink, Cappucino, 8.45-Ounce Cans. It's a Cappucino with the name misspelled, (should be "Cappuccino"), a product of Denmark from illycaffè SpA, which is based in Milan, Italy, and it's distributed by Coca-Cola. Is this the new international globalism in coffees? Not sure where the can is made.

Not posting any calorie counts or other such levels here, and they can all be found in the product description, including that it uses rBST-free milk. But for those who don't know, rBST-free milk is the good kind, as rBST (recombinant bovine somatotropin) is a synthetic version of the Bovine somatotropin (BST) hormone found in cattle. It's the hormone that's used by many commercial dairies to increase milk production, and it's been marketed under a number of names. I'll stay away from that controversy here, but find it to be good that this beverage is rBST-free.

First Look:

Noticed the "DO NOT SHAKE" warning posted four times around the rim of the can. Don't know what that's all about, but stuck it into the fridge along with the illy issimo Coffee Drink, Caffè, 6.8-Ounce Cans that I received at the same time. That one also had the "DO NOT SHAKE" admonition on the rim. As neither of these are carbonated, don't know what to make of that.

Taste:

Tried this illy issimo Coffee Drink, Cappucino the following day after it had chilled. First impression was that it wasn't bad, a little watery perhaps, and thinner than expected. It got better with the second sip, and did get better than others of this type that I've tasted before (like Starbucks Frappuccino, etc). There's a real coffee taste, which I appreciated. The milk and/or cream part wasn't overpowering, which did allow the coffee taste to come through. Glad to say that it lacked the sweet dairy flavor of many of the popular drinks in grocery stores, many of which come from artificial sweeteners. There was a mild aftertaste that remained ten minutes later; not unpleasant, but not great, either.

Conclusion:

Must note that I'm one of those who as a rule drinks coffee black, with no sweeteners, cream or creamy substitutes. That being said, I did prefer the illy issimo Coffee Drink, Caffè over this "Cappucino" variant. This one might have had a more full-bodied flavor, but it wasn't objectionable in the least. Using the Amazon star rating system, I'll say it's OK, a decent 3-star product, and one that I might buy if I had company over for the evening, along with the illy issimo Caffè for those wanting a stronger taste... and for myself.

Still tempted to ignore that "DO NOT SHAKE" warning and just try it to see what happens...

399995399995B002IEVJRYA20P83OXT2OPYMFairlee E. Winfield "Author of BUFFALOed 2009...4651332892800My wish: to see this in vending machinesI really loved this canned cappuccino. It reminded me of the canned coffees I used to get from the machines in Japan. It's rich, delicious and sure made me feel snappy. In Japan they had this kind of warm coffee in the machines. So great for tough mornings. I tried it cold, but next time I'll warm it and see. Sure better than the bottled variety from "you know who." Not so sugary. Count me in Illy.
399996399996B002IEVJRYA3PJZ8TU8FDQ1KJared Castle2351340841600Only 100 calories!? The rich flavor will surprise youAt 100 calories per can, illy issimo Cappuccino delivers the rich flavor you might expect involves a much higher caloric tradeoff. My wife was happy that we had the opportunity to review it for free as part of Amazon's Vine program. She immediately signed up for a regular case shipment through Amazon's Subscribe & Save program, which offers a 15% discount.

Here's our conversation:

HOW does it taste?

"Not too sweet. I feel like this is an adult coffee drink, not a milkshake in disguise."

WHEN would you drink it?

"In the afternoon, when I need a kick, when the kids come home from school and before dinner."

WHAT else?

"I'd serve this when my friends come over. And I'd take a can to work, I'd take a can anywhere."

The 100 calories was a big selling point for my wife and illy issimo Cappuccino highlights that point by including on their label. The picture I added with this review shows you how much lighter this blend is versus the illy issimo Caffè, which we also tested and reviewed for Amazon.

In summary, illy issimo Cappuccino reminded my wife of the delicious canned coffees she used to enjoy when we lived in Japan. The fact that this brand is more affordable and lower in calories are just two more reasons to buy.

399997399997B002IEVJRYAXAJXJZUL2J5PD. Scott2341339977600Yes, it's canned, but it's not badThere's no way you are ever going to get the richness and full flavor of fresh-brewed coffee out of a canned drink. But once you acknowledge that, you can enjoy this cold cappuccino for what it is. It's a refreshing, energizing, naturally "coffee-flavored" beverage that you can keep in your fridge, ready to go in an instant.

I like that there are no alarming ingredients...well, except for sugar, but that's not unexpected. But yeah, there's a lot of sugar, 19g. If they came out with a Splenda-sweetened version, they'd really have something.

Actually, I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do enjoy coffee dessert-beverages (such as DQ's MooLatte), and I could drink this, so that gives you an idea of the level of sweetness in this drink. If you like your coffee dark and strong, you might not like this.

To make this Illy Issimo drink even more to my liking, I added about a half cup of milk and some Splenda. Drinking the whole thing down in a couple of minutes, I got a quick caffeine rush. I can imagine that this would be fantastic as a breakfast drink with the extra protein from the added milk (put it in your insulated travel cup to keep it cold and give you room for milk; the can this comes in is too narrow for your cup holder, anyway).

Overall, I think this is an impressive, tasty, quality product. If you enjoy sweet, cold coffee, you'll enjoy this.
399998399998B002IEVJRYA3QS4WWC1LCA6HEric C. Sedensky "late-to-jazz musician"2341339545600Not bad, ummm, no, good!I'm not a big cold coffee drinker, but occasionally I have a taste for coffee and don't particularly feel like warming up. That's when I'll have a can of coffee like this Illy Issimo. I like the taste of this product because it isn't too sweet. (I normally take my coffee with sweetener and creamer of some kind.) It's just sweet enough to make it tasty for me, but not so cloyingly sweet that the coffee taste can't come through. The coffee flavor is rich and creamy, more or less what you would expect of a cappuccino. What you wouldn't expect with this low level of sweetness in a coffee, however, is the high level of calories (100 for a 8 ounce can). That's maybe not a deal breaker, but it's a far cry from the 20 calories of a regular cup of coffee with Splenda Essentials No Calorie Sweetener with Antioxidants, 80-Count Box (Pack of 4) and a non-dairy creamer. Still, the taste is good and I like the convenience and size of this can, so I'm okay giving it a four star rating.
399999399999B002IEVJRYA1VQI32QPYXU6FJosh Strickland "J. Strickland"2311339545600Ehh....I love drinking coffee, Cappuccinos, and even iced coffee. So when I seen the illy issimo coffee drink I just had to get it. The day it arrived in the mail, I was eager to drink it. This had to be the worst coffe drink I had ever had. It tasted like coffee grounds with water, I couldn't even finish the whole drink. I personally wouldn't recommened this drink, but if you're a coffee drinker and like try try new things it doesn't hurt. You may actually enjoy this drink more than I have.
400000400000B002IEVJRYA3S3R88HA0HZG3PT Cruiser "PT Cruiser"2351338336000Very appealing over iceI don't usually drink iced coffee drinks because I tried one a few years ago and thought it tasted awful. But I was pleasantly surprised with this Cappucino illy issimo Coffee Drink. It's excellent over ice. Right out of the can, at room temperature, not so much. But I think these types of drinks are meant to be served very cold. (Or maybe heated? I didn't think to try warming it, but I think hot would probably work too.) What I liked was that it had a very 'clean' taste, no funny aftertaste like some canned drinks have. In fact, there was no aftertaste at all. There was just the right balance of coffee, sugar, milk and a little bit of cocoa powder so it wasn't too sweet. I didn't notice the cocoa powder taste when I drank it. I think it just adds to the overall flavor.

Here are the ingredients: Coffee, lowfat milk, sugar, cocoa powder, potassium bicarbonate, celluose gel, potassium citrate, cellulose gum, carrageenan. The caffeine content is 81 mg per the 8.45 ounce can. Compare that to 48 mg. per 16.9 ounces of caffeine in Coke Zero. Compared to that, this drink delivers a pretty potent punch and could be considered kind of an energy drink, but still not as strong as their illy issimo Coffee Drink, Caffè, 6.8-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12) at 155 mg. caffeine per 6.9 ounce can.

All in all a quick, convenient and good tasting coffee drink when poured over ice.

60 milligrams of sodium
5 milligrams of cholesterol
19 grams total of carbohydrates
18 grams of sugars
4 grams of protein

Coffee is the first ingredient, followed by skim milk, followed by SUGAR! More dubious ingredients are potassium bicarbonate, cellulose gel, potassium citrate, cellulose gum and carrageenan, which I guess is a seaweed extract. Go figure.

But if you like those little bottled frappuccinos they stock in the counter coolers at Starbucks, you'll like this. It has a easy, sweet taste and, speaking for myself, provides just enough caffeine jolt for the day. As of this typing, this little can is the only caffeine I've had all day and I feel like I'm set. Recommended.
400002400002B002IEVJRYA1TNK6MP89YXY2Jamie R. Wilson0051333670400Delicious Italian cappuccino on the go!I first tried the illy issimo espresso and, despite being a guy who doesn't do plain espresso or even straight-up black coffee, I actually kind of liked it. Quality is quality and coffee is yet another thing Italians do well. With that said, the cappuccino is a better fit for my personal tastes--not as strong, not as bold as the espresso. It's *really* good and I'm actually drinking some while I write this.

When my girlfriend saw a can of this sitting in my apartment she got excited. We met in an Italian language class in college and she actually had the opportunity to study in Italy for a summer. She said illy issimo coffee products are everywhere in Italy, which I take as either great market saturation or a ringing endorsement of what Italians think about the brand. After enjoying it myself, I'm going to go with the latter.
400003400003B002IEVJRYA3T0EJIUQDEWNIK. Hernandez "DailyReadz - One Great Book Eve...0041333584000Excellent but misnamedI loved this drink, it was excellent. Not too sweet, very mellow. However, it contains chocolate flavor, so in my opinion it should be named Mocha. Cappuccino is misleading and people who expect that flavor may be disappointed.
400004400004B002IEVJRYA2IMLOJ2Z2QEU2Naomi (Storm)0041333584000I really enjoyed it - not a major coffee drinkerI am not a huge coffee fan - I prefer my coffee in a dessert style: creamy and sweet. The Starbucks mocha Frapachinos (bottled) are usually the only coffee-esque drink that I like, and even those I only drink a few times a year. The illy issimo Cappuccino wasn't bad - it wasn't nearly as creamy as the Starbucks drinks, but it was also around a half of the calories, so there's a bit of give and take there. It's also not super sweet - many of the Starbucks drinks border on that thin line between really tasty and "The sugar is melting my teeth". The illy issimo is very safely stashed on the not-super-sweet side of the fence. Don't take that to mean there isn't any sweetness - I'd compare it to a Symphony chocolate bar versus a Hershey's milk chocolate bar. They both have very similar flavor profiles, but the generic Hershey bar is so much sweeter. I can't really say it's like a dark chocolate either, because the cappuccino didn't have a lot of the bitter undertones that the dark chocolates and espresso drinks tend to have.

As for energy burst, I should preface by saying that I'm not much of a caffeine drinker any more. My normal drink is straight water, and at restaurants iced tea (unsweet). I think my body has stored up reserves of caffeine and sugar from my childhood days though - back when I drank a six-pack (or more) of Coke a day. That being said, the "rush" from the drink took a few hours for me to feel it (granted I had already eaten lunch and had a full stomach, which might explain the lag). But when it hit, it was a sort of "giddy" high, not like a super pixie-stick rush. I also can't say I experienced much of a telltale caffeine crash either, the extra energy just quietly bled away.

All-in-all, should I decide to pick up a coffee drink, I wouldn't hesitate to get another one from illy issimo.
400005400005B002IEVJRYA6LUXI8I8BU6PD Strick "Entertainment D"0041333584000Silly illy CoffeeThe Illy Issimo Cappuccino Coffee drink is one of many such drinks on the market. If you like chilled coffee drinks you'll probably like this one too. The flavor to me was a bit light. It had kind of a vanilla but clean flavor. Speaking for myself I'd prefer a stronger flavor but the lightness of this will probably appeal to plenty of people. The can says not to shake but I did not get any hint of carbonation or anything. I'd say it is worth trying if you like coffee drinks and you just may enjoy it.
400006400006B002IEVJRYATANE2SC44592Loves those books0041333584000Good tasteI have had the illy issimo coffee before and liked it so I was excited to try this iced coffee drink. This cappuccino has a nice smooth taste with just enough sugar to make it sweet (but not overwhelming). It gave me a nice jolt of energy to get me through the afternoon but not leave me jittery. I will buy this again!
400007400007B002IEVJRYA2MA4ATED1B1GBLLM "dagoodnurse"0031333497600Nothing specialI'm not an iced coffe drinker, but I thought I would give this a shot. The whole can was 100 cals. It did taste mildly of coffee & milk, but I felt it could've been a bit sweeter. The drink was thin, not lush. It was ok as a sample, but i wouldn't purchase.
400008400008B002IEVJRYA2LWIG18BWDXO8paoniabees "beewrangler"0051333411200TastyThis is a nice little coffee drink - not too sweet, only 100 calories and as good as Starbucks Lo Fat drinks. Would have preferred a glass container but the little cans fit really well in my handbag.
400009400009B002IEVJRYA1VF5LN6SHFVFJMichael A. Saxton "Dark Lord of the Sith"0051333411200Coffee in a CanThere is no crazy, out of control flavoring with this one. It's coffee in a can. If you like coffee, you'll like this. Unlike other energy drinks which tend to taste like medicine, this one tastes real. I even did a little experiment. I pounded the thing. Usually that's not recommended with energy drinks. It didn't get my heart rate up or anything like that but it woke me up real nice (only had 3 hours of sleep the night before I drank it). You could probably warm it up and it would taste like a regular coffee or pour it over ice and have an ice coffee. Keep in mind that there's milk in this. It's a hundred calories, so it's not one of those low calorie or zero calorie things. Other than that, have at it!
400010400010B002IEVJRYA20VX7F4164FVCMachael Foegelle "xenagrrl2000"0031333324800Not too sweet but tasted a little thinI love all kinds of coffee, from light to dark roasts. I don't like really sweet foo foo coffee drinks (with a bunch of nuts, whipped cream, and caramel drizzled over the top) but have enjoyed Starbucks shelf-stable frappuccino blended drinks on occasion. So I thought it would be interesting to try illy issimo's version of a shelf-stable coffee concoction. I drank it chilled which is probably how this is meant to be enjoyed, but your mileage may vary. First impression: I was a little disappointed at how "thin" the coffee taste was. Not very robust, as I was hoping it would be. But the taste was smooth enough, and it was lightly sweetened, not heavily so, and no bitter aftertaste. It only has 100 calories, but again it's a mere 8 ounces of a drink. I would probably drink it again if someone offered it to me, but I won't be purchasing it at the store. It was good. Okay, but not great or worth seeking out. I'll buy the Starbucks again instead should I ever get a hankering for a shelf-table, from-the-grocery-store blended coffee drink.
400011400011B002IEVJRYA31YSTICHFYN7OCPR "xfilebuffyfan"0041333324800Smooth & Refreshing AlternativeI was expecting this coffee drink to taste like most of the others that clutter the grocery shelves, but it wasn't. The can proclaims that it is a Italian style coffee and surprisingly this gave a very distinct flavor. The coffee is not overwhelming but it is distinct. I feel like too many coffee go for bold harsh french dark roast style flavors, whereas the illy issimo is more of a smooth yet bold flavor. The boldness is there, but not as a heavy aftertaste - more of a mid-taste contrast to the slightly mocha flavoring. The mocha flavor here is aromatic but not overtly chocolate in taste. As a whole I think those that find canned coffee redundant - try this. It is different and a nice change of pace.

The coffee taste is rich and bold, but not bitter. It is sweetened. I usually do not sweeten my coffee. The sweetness is mild to moderate, and is not excessive. The 8.45 oz size is a little small. Not your typical American portion. I can see drinking 2 at a time, which can be a little expensive.

My 4 star rating is for the product only. I had some problems with the packaging/delivery that the typical buyer should not encounter. I was sent a single sample can to try. It was delivered in a cushioned envelope and the can was very beat up and dented. I was surprised it hadn't leaked in the mail. When I opened the can it sprayed me with coffee. This should not be a problem when ordering a case because it will probably come in a box.
