      I normally prefer a dark roast. Jump Start is my preferred first cup of the day. That said, I ordered this to try a coffee from Laos. This one surprised me! It's very smooth. I like the tones of chocolate and vanilla.
      It makes a great second cup for me after I've had my
      favorite dark roast. I'm thinking it might make a good iced coffee. If you're curious, give it a try!
