I desperately want to love this stuff, because I like the packaging, price, availability, and that it was created in the Bronx. However, in my opinion, this coffee is everything one would normally avoid. I find it to be horribly bitter, too acidic, and nothing like espresso or Cuban coffee. I've attempted numerous times to adjust my tastebuds to this stuff, but it just won't grow on me. I gave it two stars because drinking Bustelo is better than having nothing at all... I suppose.

I’ve been drinking Cafe Bustelo for years. It’s by far my favorite morning buster drink. About this product, It is smooth and it has a bold taste. You can add sugar and creamer for a good sweet coffee taste. You can purchase this product any were from Target, Walmart, Safeway, and so on. I would truly recommend this product!

I grew up drinking coffee. In my family a good cup of coffee is very important. It’s a chance to sit down and relax with one another and catch up on the days activities. This coffee is amazing. It’s strong but not bitter. It’s flavorful. And it has an aroma that is mouthwatering.

Best espresso coffee ever! You can use this in the refillable k cups or if u do it the right way u can do it the cuban way with an actual espresso machine. If u have an espresso machine all u need to do is fill it and let it start then in another cup put 4 tablespoons of sugar in it. When the coffee first starts coming out you need to take a couple of tablespoons of that and whip it with the sugar cup. You keep whipping it until it looks like peanut butter. Then when the coffee is done brewing you mkx everything together one last time. This can give you about 10 small shots for people or one cup for yourself. But trust me it will keep you energized for the rest of the day! [product:mr.-coffee-steam-espresso-machine]

Not a morning goes by that I don't drink this. As soon as I wake up I go straight to the kitchen and brew away. Rich flavor, and the scent is a pick me up. When I drink it black I add cinnamon or nutmeg. I used carnation Mill or regular steamed milk. My supermarket usually has a great sale on this.

I’ve been drinking Cafe Bustelo since I was a kid (no kidding). Bustelo is affordable but don’t be fooled, it’s rich and full of taste! Ive tried other brands but nothing compares. For an extra kick I  add a little nutmeg and cinnamon powder! Now that’s holy grail!

My favorite drink for energy! Cafe Bustelo has a smooth flavor that does not feel as striking or acid based. It provides me with more energy compared to other brands and is a great price. I buy the largest size and continue to use this brand for my morning cup(s)!

Tried this a few years ago and now it is the only coffee I buy for home brewing. The best coffee ever for home! Bustelo has a rich taste - compared to others that tastes watery and bland. I have been drinking this coffee for at least 2 years and have been happy with the product.

I LOVE this coffee... I honestly do not purchase any other ground coffee. I even have the reusable pods for my Keurig to use because of it. It is a little more expensive normally but if you se it on sale for $2.50 PICK IT UP!!! I usually stock up when it is that price. Normally its about $3.99 to $4.25 for a 12oz can or brick. Once the hot Coffee hits your lips you are in heaven with the blend of last and aroma all at once. Do yourself a favor and pick up a can, you will not regret it.
