There are two flavors in the Wellness Collection, the Focus Blend and an Antioxidant Blend. The Focus Blend includes 50 mg L-Theanine (reduce stress and anxiety) while the Antioxidant Blend has Vitamin C and E. These are both 100% Fair Trade certified coffees!
Since I drink my coffee black I was really concerned about the flavor of the enhanced coffee. GMC did not disappoint. It had the same great taste we expect from them and there was no aftertaste. I enjoyed the Antioxidant Blend slight better since it had a bolder taste. Also, I reduced the amount of water per cup to about 9 oz. for a richer taste. I love knowing a healthier choice in coffee has great flavor. Over the few days I sampled these two types of blends I can not say that I noticed any health benefits but maybe over time the improvement would be noticeable. I do know that I enjoyed the coffee and would purchase the Wellness blends.
