Got this for four months for my wife as a gift. I'm not much of a coffee drinker and even I think this coffee tastes very good (with nothing added). The two that I have tried were both extremely smooth. I don't have the expertise to say whether it is good for the price, but I do know that the coffee is very high quality and my wife likes it very much. She has mentioned that it tastes significantly better than Caribou, Starbucks, whatever your favorite coffee shop of this ilk may be. Despite being shipped from Hong Kong, the shipping times are reasonable and the product is packaged very well.
