Smooth, not much of an acid taste, about as close to ideal, this produces an excellent MEDIUM roast style cup of coffee, period.  In case you don't like that dark roast, dense, heavy style of coffee in the morning , then this is definitely the coffee for you. Plenty of times you discover a k-cup which at first is excellent, but after a couple of cups get sick of them - not with this. It is not bitter, a bit floral, with a true pure coffee taste and it's been and continues to be an absolute favourite.
