I received this as a Christmas gift in 2011 and started receiving my two pounds of coffee in December with Blizzard being one of my first coffees. I didn't like every one. Some on the non-flavored coffees were too strong, some were just right. Some of the flavored coffees weren't to my taste or had no flavor, some were fabulous. All the coconut coffees were great. I liked the flavored coffees more than the non-flavored. But that's the great thing about this gift, there is enough coffee, more than enough, to last one person through the month (I'm the only coffee drinker in my house) and it was great fun to see what cofee I'd receive each month. This is a great, great sampler of coffee. I highly recommend it as a gift if you know someone who is a coffee lover. I would find out if they have a coffee grinder. I got drip grind because my gift giver didn't know if I ground my own beans. I grind my own beans. If I get this again, I'll suggest whole beans.
