Rating: 88 Points (out of 100)
"Caramel and toast in the aroma with hints of citrus and flowers. Gently balanced acidity, medium body, silky mouthfeel. Sweet-toned in the cup, with continued caramel, toast and citrus notes. Flavor carries into the short finish, but fades toward astringency in the long."
— Ken Davids, CoffeeReview.com, December 2010

Something is wrong with new packaging

Comments about Barista Prima® House Blend:

We've been getting this for more than a year now and love it. However, when we received our latest shipment this month I noticed that the packaging has changed. When I brew a cup with the new packaging, it seems as if my Breville struggles to get the water out. Brewing a tea bag, or one of the old House Blend k-cups (I still have a few left) is no problem - pretty sure it is a problem with the new k cup packaging.

          Comments about Barista Prima® House Blend:

          I'm very averse to watery-tasting coffee, so I lean towards the bolder K-Cups and never brew more than 8 oz. This was one of the first K-Cups I tried and it remains my favorite. For the sake of variety, I always buy other K-Cups with every order (including new ones to try out), but I still haven't found another with such a combination of rich flavor, smoothness and a nice finish with no bitter aftertaste. Although I do enjoy some of the darker roasts and super-bold blends, I think Barista Prime House Blend has the best overall balance of qualities for people who like a bold K-Cup. Try it out.

            This was a great cup of coffee. I struggle to find a cup of coffee that tastes as good as it smells. This is a medium roast but has a bit of a bite to it. Not as strong as Starbucks. Nice flavor.

                Delicious!! Usually drink Dark Magic but this is just as good if not better. Don't go by the price, it reduces down to just .72/cup. How many people spend $2.50 on a cup of coffee at their local coffee house. This is much better!!!

                  One of my go to coffees. Great in the morning or after dinner or just sitting on the deck. Has good balance and flavor for me. The only thing negative is the price.

                  Love it! Love all the Barista Primas! House Blend is my personal fave. Much too pricy though. Would maybe only purchase a box every 6 months or so just as a treat for myself.

                      Barista House Blend use to be our favorite. It was the main reason that we kept the account and paid the ridiculously high GM prices. However, the last order was a particularly inferior "gas station" coffee with the Barista label plastered on top. We could not have been more disappointed, and can't decide whether the account is worth keeping. It will be a long time before we order any more GM coffee!

                          This coffee is incredibly strong. I love trying the best of the best, and I thought House Blend was a good choice...that is until I had my first cup. I ended up giving half the box away, which then was given away to someone else.
