We love Eight O’Clock and we love dark roasts – especially Italian, but we are admittedly on the fence about this one. It’s definitely bold and features an intense dark flavor, but there’s an almost uncomfortable bitterness and aftertaste to the blend that we don’t quite like. It’s an okay coffee, but honestly lost it’s chance at exceptional with the weird aftertaste. Also, the aroma is a bit misleading as it seems to carry some exquisite fruity notes almost, but nothing very complex present in the brew taste.
