Review for: Can, Regular more...
As a former barista I had a stash of Starbucks coffee that lasted me years. After I ran out I didn't know what would be my regular brew. Green mountain? Folgers? McCafe? No no no. I can't go back to mediocre. After watching a Netflix original with some very persistent product placement, I knew I had to give this a try. Next week at the grocery store it only took a moment for the yellow can to grab my attention. I buy it and take it home. It's 5pm but I have to give it a try! It's finely ground so I put a little less than I normally would.
I don't mind strong coffee but I also didn't want it to punch me in the face. The fresh brew aroma fills the air past the kitchen into the living room. I could smell the boldness. I go to pour my cup. I love coffee, but I like to taste a little more than bean water. I splash in my hazelnut creamer. The couch welcomes me as I tread over into the living room to begin my sips. I sit down and prepare for disappointment. Newness has not always been kind to me. I sip. It wasn't bitter! Baffled by what touched my lips I peer down at my mug. Did I put too much creamer?!
No.
It's just that good.

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.

Review for: Brick, Regular, Café Espresso Of 12, Dark Roast more...
Holy Moly!!!!! If you're looking for a good cup of Joe then look no further! I've purchased the dark roast and espresso. They're so finely milled I have to brew it with a filter or the coffee residue seeps into my brewed coffee so the French press is out. I recommend a Chemex or a regular coffee pot. It took a couple times to get the right coffee grounds to water ratio for me. It is very easy to make the coffee too strong so don't undermine the power of these beans. I usually can only drink one cup of this a day or I get too jittery throughout the day. Sometimes I put a little hazelnut creamer to help with the overly bold taste. Cafe Bustelo is full of flavor and aroma, it'll fill your entire house and wake your family up on an early morning.

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]

This coffee takes me back to my vacation to Puerto Rico! They use this every morning for our cappuccinos and I fell in love. When I came back, I bought two cans of this and ran out of one within the first week(we drink ALOT of coffee) . This is super cheap and sooo worth it. One of the best cups of coffee I’ve ever had

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)!

I love this! I didn’t think I would because lately I haven’t been into espressos. I tried this at my brother’s house and he was right, it is amazing! It is easy to drink and tastes good with any coffee creamer or just plain milk & sugar. It packs that extra punch that I need throughout the day.

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.

We are completely obsessed with this. We grew up on it & now have it in our own home. We brew a big pot for the week & it reheats just as fresh. I really enjoy the taste of the coffee & love that theres no after taste
