I tried these for a change. I love that they have all natural flavor because artificial flavor tastes like chemicals to me... it is what it is. I wish the showcases flavors of these coffee pods were prominent tasting. I will say, the coffee does smell like the flavor it is supposed to be. The coffee base is slightly bitter, so I do wish it were more smooth. I usually get the Nespresso dark purple pods... love those, as they are super smooth & delicious! These were ok, & nice to try.
