#1 Hong Wing

TYPE: Ground

PRICE: Extremely Affordable


  • Tastes odd, almost like drinking gas; unimpressed. I got accustomed to the taste eventually but didn’t enjoy it any better.

#2 Members Selection – Premium Excelso

TYPE: Ground

PRICE: Not worth it


  • The initial taste is not great at all (worst than Hong Wing), almost unnatural but eventually, you get used to it, though I wouldn’t recommend it one bit.

#4 Starbucks – House Blend

TYPE: Beans

PRICE: Higher End

RECOMMENDATION: Would NOT really recommend

  • It’s not great tasting at all, though you get used to it more than the previous ones.

#5 Jose Perez – Ground

TYPE: Ground

PRICE: Average Price

RECOMMENDATION: Might recommend

  • Acceptable taste but is not great or smooth. I got accustomed to this taste and may buy this one again.

#6 Starbucks – Willow Blend

TYPE: Beans

PRICE: Higher End

RECOMMENDATION: Will recommend

  • Smooth acceptable taste. This was the only Starbucks blend that I could see myself buying again if I had no other option.

#7 Cafe Brasil

TYPE: Ground

PRICE: Affordable (Nice option on a budget)

RECOMMENDATION: Will recommend

  • The taste is not bad, but not great; not smooth. This was okay over time, but not great. A nice option on a budget.

#8 Real Taste – Dark Roast

TYPE: Ground

PRICE: Above average (per serving)

RECOMMENDATION: Will recommend

  • Surprised by this taste, though it requires more serving size than the rest. It was nice and may buy this one again or try the other options they have.

#9 Jose Perez – Beans

TYPE: Beans

PRICE: Average but higher

RECOMMENDATION: Will recommend

  • Acceptable Taste, better than the Ground option. Compared to Jose Perez Ground Coffee this was richer in taste and I may buy this again.

#10 Volcanica – Espresso

TYPE: Beans

PRICE: Higher End

RECOMMENDATION: Will recommend

  • Acceptable taste though not as smooth. I may buy this again. There are many more options from this brand I may try.

#11 Dunkin’ – Original Blend

TYPE: Beans

PRICE: Affordable

RECOMMENDATION: Will recommend

  • I really enjoyed this one and was surprised by the quality of this commercial American brand. Will definitely buy it again if it’s available locally.

#12 Lavazza – Classico

TYPE: Beans

PRICE: Higher end (worth it)

RECOMMENDATION: Will always recommend

  • Great Taste, really smooth and enjoyable. I really enjoyed this one and was surprised because I’ve never come across this brand before.

#13 Lavazza – Expresso

TYPE: Beans

PRICE: Higher End (worth every bit)

RECOMMENDATION: Highly recommend

  • This is definitely my go-to selection of coffee beans henceforth. I like the fact you’re getting beans and can ground yourself for a fresher taste. Extremely pleased with this.
