The best cup of coffee I have ever had!Mar 22, 2011
By Consumer Reports
Still smarting from the Community Coffee deal that I indulged in, I got right back on the horse in my quest for finding great coffee on Amazon.
I have had a few weeks and gone through a full bag of this coffee, subjecting my family and friends to pots of coffee brewed with Eight O'Clock 50% Decaf Whole Bean Coffee. Quotes from my victims:
My mother-in-law, "I don't like decaf, are you sure this is decaf? This is too good to be decaf."
My father-in-law: Asked for a second cup. Honey, you never have a second cup of MY coffee!
My cousin, "Oh my God...this is better than Dunkin' Donuts!"
My cousin the next day, "Would you mind making some more of that delicious coffee?"
My wife, who only used to drink Dunkin' Donuts coffee,: "Are you making coffee this morning?"
What do I think? It's the best cup of home-brewed coffee that I have ever had. I am a big Dunkin' coffee fan, so I won't say it's better than DD....but it's very close if it isn't better!
Keys to success: "Use fresh, filtered water. Use half and half or cream. Grind the beans fresh. Use a ratio of 1 1/2 tablespoons for each 6oz cup of coffee."
If you haven't had this yet, do yourself a favor and give it a shot. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

Convenient, but blandMar 10, 2009
It's certainly convenient to have an out-of-the bag 50% Decaf bean, and the price is certainly right, BUT... I actually find this coffee to be fairly bland in taste. I've tried adjusting the amounts, but I was unable to coax a really rich taste from these beans. I have gone back to mixing Caf and Decaf myself. (I just pour the Caf beans into one side of the burr grinder, and Decaf into the other side.) Currently I'm mixing Jeremiah's Pick Coffee Co, Whole Bean Coffee, Decaf Private Reserve, 10-Ounce Bags (Pack of 3) and Timothy's World Coffee, Kona Blend, Ground, 10-Ounce Bags (Pack of 3), and this makes a pretty rich cup. Also, manually mixing beans gives you a better opportunity to experiment with different bean flavors, which is fun...

'Balanced' IndeedJan 25, 2008
By Lynn Hoffman, author:Radiation Days: A Comedy
The Eight O'Clock line of coffees has always represented extraordinary value. I had occasion to prepare a coffee tasting for a small group of wine-lovers a few years back. The contenders were Eight O'Clock Bokar blend, Illy Cafe's Famiglia blend and two blends from a very famous coffee shop chain that probably has a store within three blocks of your house.
I asked the tasters to use wine descriptors to judge the coffees and then to make a judgment of overall satisfaction. Of the 22 in the group,21 picked either the Illy or the Eight O'Clock in first place and all 22 picked one of them for second.
This blend is one that we use at home for the afternoon or early evening cup when we don't want to be over-caffeinated. The flavor is truly balanced, slightly fruity with a hint of toasty chocolate. It's a medium-bodied blend, but you can concentrate it by using less water without harming the flavor.
I strongly recommend using a plunger type french press coffee maker like Bodum Chambord 3-Cup Coffee Press or the unbreakableBodum Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press Pot.

A flavorful Half Caf-- see updateMay 25, 2010
By Moodies forever
Picked this up at a SUPER price on Amazon. The first pot of this coffee that I made was so blaah and lacking any body that I packed it up and sent it back.
I would give a higher rating if the coffee had been fresher. The "best if used by" dates on my shipment were not as far out as what I can buy at the "W" store by 3 or 4 months. When I opened the first bag it had a pleasant but almost non-existant aroma. The beans appeared very dry. This is confirmed by nearly no residue in the grinding chamber after grinding. But most beans from Eight O'Clock seem to be dry. I have now used Bokar Blend, Columbian, Original, and Original Decaf the 50/50. Have not tried the French of Italian roasts, but I am guessing that the beans would have some oil sheen on them.
Im summary EOC full decaf in the green bag tastes better.
Update: 10/3/2010 I tried the Half Caf in a Mellita 4 cup cone drip maker, and had better results. It had more body and flavor than when brewed in my Bunn. My guess is that the fast brew cycle of the Bunn, is too quick to extract flavor fron decafs and half cafs. So I am upping my rating to 4, stars for a less intensifying coffee experience that tastes good. Tastes much better and still smooth like all EOC coffees.
