TEST RESULTS


This coffee has a wonderful unique taste that keeps you coming back for more. It has a smooth and creamy texture that is really addictive. If you've never had a Madjool Date then you are definitely missing out! They are extremely rich with an almost caramel-like taste with a soft chewy texture that combines perfectly with the butterscotch notes. In contrast to the buttery smooth dates comes a warm crunchy Macadamia nut flavor that adds just the right amount of texture. Lastly subtle acidic pops of Black Raspberry bring everything together.
