Starbucks Oceanside blend is a fresh coffee, but much bolder than Tanzania. The ground beans have a very faint smell of something sweet, maybe cocoa, which also gives the ready brew a fuller, almost creamy nice steam.

And it tastes good. The Oceanside blend is labelled to be bold, which is still light and refreshing for me, but indeed is much bolder than Tanzania. Once i had tasted all the coffees Starbucks offers, Oceanside blend will be one of my first choices (along Italian blend and Verona) to have a go with again. It tastes sweet and full like chocolate, and at the same time roasted like popcorns and stingy fresh as if it met a slice of lemon somewhere. Not to mention its label looks nice, a good design.

You should definitely give it a try.
