Zero Taste, Weird Look, High Price

Noah Deering - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
This is the single most worst coffee I have ever purchased. Starbucks' burned coffee is better even because at least it has flavor. This tastes like the equivalent of soul-sucked moistened cardboard. Plusz it looks so weird when grinded and used. So disappointed by this.

Disgusting rip off

AmandaJDI - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
Bought this because target has a very minimal selection of whole beans. The worst coffee I’ve ever purchased. These beans almost broke out high end and very expensive grinder, even with adjustments made to the grind. As for the taste, horrible. Maybe if you don’t actually like the taste of coffee this would be good for you, it was so thin and so watery. I usually buy light roasts but this is the lightest I’ve ever tried and not in a good way, there was so indication of the roast type on the packaging. I worked in a cafe for 6 years and while I’m not a coffee snob I know a lot about coffee and man oh man this is not it. Also the price for a half bag of the worst coffee beans I’ve ever used is bonkers. We dumped out coffee and threw all of the beans away after 2 sips. Happy for the people that liked it tho.

As a coffee addict, I look for qualities that I will enjoy as I grind and brew my beans. Though, this coffee is not enjoyable at any time, manner or process. The coffee was extremely bitter to the point that I could not drink an entire cup. Pass on this one.

This is a really wonderful coffee and the one my family drinks most of the year.. We switch it up and buy other brands like Stumptown single origin, but we keep Intelligentsia House and Frequency blends in our regular rotation. I DO wish Target would sell bags with newer Roasted On dates, but even Whole Foods sells bags that were roasted 1 or 2 months ago.

Bad French press

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
Hollee - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
My husband and I been trying a lot of new coffees over the last year and this was one of the worst. As a french press it came out sour, astringent, and just deeply unpleasant. Maybe it's better in a different grind or preparation, but this one wasn't for us. We reluctantly finished the bag as quickly as we could only because we didn't want to be wasteful.

The best medium roast I’ve had in quite a while. Grind it relatively fine and use bold setting on coffeemaker if doing it that way. Else potential for sour tastes that can come with medium roasts.

Jane CK - 3 years ago
Great reliable beans, can’t go wrong with house blend. Worked well with our breville barista without making any adjustments to the setting. I was able to get a good brew with adequate crema. I would say it’s a perfectly rounded scent and the actual drink felt comforting. Probably the chocolate in it. Nothing too strong or too bold or too sweet, which is great! I am no coffee nerd but been drinking coffee for 20+ years and appreciate a good cup. And miss my visits to intelligentsia so appreciate target selling these bags. Oh, I did pick up in person to ensure a good roast date. Got one that was a 1.5 weeks prior to my purchase date. That worked out perfectly. But I did see some bags that were almost 2 months old! Eek

Eddie - 4 years ago
just an FYI for the people thinking they're getting expired beans....the date marked on the bag is the ROAST date, not the EXPIRATION date. ideally you'd like beans as fresh as possible (couple days), but for supermarket coffee, you're likely getting beans roasted a couple weeks to a month prior. obviously, all bags will have a date in the past.

PLEASE CHECK EXPIRATION DATES ON EDIBLES ITEMS BEFORE SHIPPING THEM!!!

Lito - 5 years ago, Verified purchaser
Thank you for sending me an expired product(coffee beans). Target never seen to disappoint. I'm so disappointed at Target, I'm not going to rate this product(coffee) at the moment, until I get one that's not expired. Please target before shipping any edibles items, have your team look into(check) expired dates. Saves the customers time for returning and waiting for another 2 weeks.

Cbrink - 6 years ago
I wanted to love this coffee but the flavor is very off-putting and I found that the only way to enjoy this was by masking the flavor with creamer. They smell like cigarette ashes once they're grinded and the flavor is overly-citrusy. Wish I could return it :( I may try the other blends since they had rave reviews but at the time, this was the only blend that was available at my local Target.

Intelligentsia = The Best Coffee

anonymous - 7 years ago, Verified purchaser
The best coffee that exists today! I used to live in Chicago, where this is based out of, and most people there know and drinks this coffee. It has the perfect blend and aroma, as well as, goes down very smoothly without any bite or burnt taste like other brands. After moving and not being able to find this locally anymore, I am so glad Target carries this and for a great price. Please continue carrying this coffee as more people will discover how delicious it is.

I've tried several organic coffee beans but keep coming back to Intelligentsia. Their medium roast is dark enough that I love making a cup of latte every morning. Also it's a better deal to buy them at Target than anywhere else:-) I hope Target keeps them in stock all the time.
