Toasted Amaretto is a medium roast flavored K-cup brought to us by Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL). CBTL is the latest member of our K-cup family, I am so excited to have new flavors to try especially from such a high quality company.
I chose to brew my Toasted Amaretto K-cup on the highest water setting of my Keurig. I was confident that a medium roast coffee could stand up to the extra water, giving me a nice full mug, without tasting watered down. I was right, although I could see through the sides a bit, the translucency was minimal.
The aroma was that of a buttery almond covered in coffee (wow wouldnt that be heavenly?). It was quite appealing leaving me anxious to try my first sip.
The amaretto flavor of this coffee is nothing less than amazing, it is creamy and subdued yet abundantly present without tasting fake. I was honestly shocked at how much I enjoyed it. The mouth feel is silky and the finish is sweet. All of this is accomplished while at the same time complimenting the coffee taste (which maintains a strong presence- a feature that I love). This K-cup coffee is easy to drink and lacks any features that might turn one away.
I hate to gush too much about a coffee because it then sounds fake and like I am trying to sell something but, gosh darn it Toasted Amaretto is delicious! I enjoyed it so much that I am quite certain once my supply of Golden French Toast runs out, I will be drinking this baby every morning.
If you are a fan of flavored coffees this is no holds bar absolutely a must try. If you like light and medium roast coffees give it a try. Dark roast drinkers, this is not the K-cup for you.
