No matter what kind of coffee you like (except maybe if you’re a starbucks snob, lol) this will do you right.
not a good cup of coffee
This Coffee Will Blow Your Hair Straight Back
RICH AND FLAVORFUL
Rich, smooth coffee with sublte pecan flavor
One rule in our home – we DON’T run out of this coffee!
Well, my wife is not a coffee purist. She likes her coffee sweet with flavored liquid creamer “products”. How the heck can people taste the coffee with that mess in their cup?? And if you need that junk with your coffee, for goodness sake please don’t waste a premium coffee! Right? I mean seriously, what’s the point?
Anyway, rather than dealing with two different coffees every morning or watching a good coffee get beat up with the overpowering sweet creamer “product” (have you ever read the ingredients?), instead I went on the hunt for a real coffee with good taste, full aroma and some mutually agreeable “flavor” already in the bean that wouldn’t hide the coffee but would still appeal to my wife. Well, we both love pecans so when I read reviews for Cameron’s Toasted Southern Pecan whole bean coffee I decided we had to give it a shot.
The next morning after we put our first bag in the pantry, I opened it up – getting first full shot of the rich roast aroma of the whole beans (wow!) – ground the beans, brewed that first pot then put a steaming cup in front of my wife with real cream – no sugar – and asked her to just give it a try. With that very first cup, we both agreed this would be a new “staple” in our pantry and soon added it to our existing (Amazon) subscription purchases to insure we don’t ever run out. This has become our preferred weekend coffee (we like to relax on weekend mornings and enjoy extra cup or two of coffee we can “linger over”) and occasionally it manages to “sneak” into the weekday coffee rotation when we have a slower morning available.
Now don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy great top grade coffees and will never give them up. And my wife will continue to prefer her coffee “creamed & sweetened”. But, at least for this particular coffee, I have learned that “flavored” and “real coffee” don’t have to be mutually exclusive (when sourced, blended and roasted correctly). And my wife has learned that sometimes coffee (well, this one anyway!) can be better appreciated with a simple splash of real cream – no flavored sweet creamer “products” allowed with this coffee.
As for the price, well again that’s not my primary criteria with food and beverages – taste and quality are higher priorities for me. But I can appreciate a bargain, and I fully agree that when you can find a good product at a great price, that makes it even better (hence, five stars on this review). Seriously, there is no doubt this is a good coffee at a great price. So, whether you approach your purchasing decision from a taste or value bias, go ahead and put a bag in your cart, get this coffee in your cup and prepare to become a fan.
This coffee hits the spot!
Typically for me, flavored coffee smells great out of the bag, and smells like the flavor when you are brewing it, but once you taste it you find the flavor is gone, and worst is that the underlying coffee really isn’t that great. This is totally the opposite.
I brew a batch in the coffee machine, and when I take a sip the first thing I taste is a smooth medium roast which is actually more than decent. I didn’t really pick up the hint of sweetness the pecan was giving off until my 3rd or 4th sip. Very subtle at first, but more noticeable once you know it’s there. Definitely not overpowering, but just enough where you might think twice about adding sweetener to it. I tried it in the french press, and man! it’s twice as good. Really brings out the richness and pecan flavor!
This coffee smells so good out of the bag you almost want to eat the beans by themselves. And again, the best part is that the way it smells when you brew it is exactly how it tastes. It’s nothing but a good smooth cup of coffee. Can’t wait to try the other flavors.
Too much flavor
Great Coffee and Value
This is a relatively weak coffee, very mild with exceptional Pecan flavor.
I found it’s best to grind 50/50 with Cameron’s French Roast coffee to get a stronger cup with more mild Pecan.
WAY better than any grocery store coffee for less money.
One of the Best Flavors
This flavor is good all day and all night! I love starting my day off with this coffee flavor. I love the smell of this coffee. If you haven’t had this flavor before I hope you’ll try it and I hope you too will enjoy it!
great flavor, super value
It is medium roasted, smaller beams but leave a strong hint of pecan flavor in your final coffee, not just smells good. I use french press, if it matters. If you are using flavored additive, suggest reducing the amount of it as it just fights with the flavor of this coffee.
this coffee is one of my favorites!!!
i consider myself a coffee nerd and have tried many many different coffees. i wasnt too intrigued with this coffee but since im texan i insisted to myself i would try this coffee.
i couldnt have been happier.
the pecan flavor is out of this world and much more present than i figured it would be. the beans are also nice and dark and oily.
i dont suggest this as an everyday coffee. i got pretty tired of it after a while: nevertheless i keep it close in my mind and frequently order to keep me on my coffee toes!!
try this: if you dont wind up liking it you can at least say you tried!!!!
Pretty good coffee
Cameron’s Toasted Southern Pecan Coffee
Best flavored coffee we’ve had
It’s about 4 months after we bought our first bag of this coffee at Costco and are on the second bag from our subscription. Glad we bought the subscription at $12.50 each shipment, but I noticed some difference between the coffee we get through our Amazon subscription. The bag we bought from Costco consists of larger beans typical for premium coffee, with an oily sheen on the beans. While the coffee beans from our subscription also has the oily sheen, the beans are noticeability smaller, as we can compare from another bag of premium coffee we bought from Costco. Has anyone noticed this? It’s a little disappointing!
Since Costco stopped stocking this brand of coffee after the first batch from the product demo ran out, we can’t compare the beans we got from the product demo and what we get through our Amazon subscription, but the coffee from the subscription does taste weak, so I’ll try a bag of the French Bean flavor and mix it as some reviews are doing.
Much ado about coffee…
One thing I was a little confused on was the price here. It said this coffee was discounted from $16.00, yet when I went to Cameron’s website, they sell this coffee directly from them for $13.99 for the same product so i’m perplexed as to the price increase???
