Reunion Island Coffee Review

I was lucky enough to receive some great products from Reunion Island Coffee to review. If you know me at all, you know I am a serious coffee drinker, so this was really exciting to me!

I was sent a 12oz whole bean package of their Colombia Las Hermosas™ coffee which is a medium roast (my favorite) and a great travel mug that is red (my favorite color) and has the Reunion Island logo on it.

The coffee, let me tell ya... opening the bag and smelling it was pure bliss. Call me weird, but I think fresh coffee has one of the best smells there are and this coffee has an exceptionally good smell. Coffee is coffee you say? Um, then you aren't a big coffee drinker because there is definitely a difference in flavors of coffee and this is a great one!

I'm loving my new travel mug too and have used it every day this week when I take the kids to school in the morning. Brian is jealous, but I won't let him use it because he takes them to work and they never seem to make their way back home. So the mug is mine... all mine!!! Ok, so maybe that's a little dramatic, but I really like the mug.

Here is a little about their company (taken from their website)...

"Reunion Island is a wholesale specialty roaster featuring gourmet coffee, espresso and tea, including organic and Fair Trade products. Our specialty is roasting 'perfect' whole bean coffee that looks as good as it tastes, however, we are also leading the industry in developing new formats like single cup coffee pods. We are a proud supplier to many of the finest caf├ęs and restaurants in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and throughout Canada and the United States.

Reunion Island blends and roasts gourmet Arabica beans handpicked from the world’s finest growing regions. Our specialty coffees are imported from over 20 countries and offered as single origins or combined to create our signature blends, including Italian-style espresso. As a wholesale foodservice distributor, Reunion Island offers the coffee, tea and allied products that coffeehouses need to meet growing demand for Fair Trade, organic and other sustainable coffees. We are also the exclusive Canadian distributor for Victoria Arduino handmade Italian espresso machines."

So, if you like coffee, you should definitely get over and check out Reunion Island Coffee. Do you have a mom that loves coffee? Check out all the great roasts and delicious sounding flavored coffees they have to offer. Mother's Day is coming up, you know!

Disclosure: I received these products for free for review purposes. My opinions expressed in this review were honest and genuine and I was in no way persuaded by the company involved.
