Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Coffee -- 5 lbs
Gold Standard 100% Whey Coffee is in my opinion, among the best flavors offered by Optimum Nutrition. I have purchased and used the majority of available flavors and have found this product to be superior.
As a result, I begin most every day with a shake containing two scoops of this delicious supplement.

Love the taste of this protein powder
IL love ON Gold Protein powder- I have tried many kinds of them but most have a chalky aftertaste that I dont care for.
The coffee flavor powder is one of my favs as I love coffee. I add creamer to it to give a more "coffee house" feel to it.

ON protein used to have the best flavor profile of all the other brands. I think they have dulled down the flavor from what I remember a couple years ago. I've found that adding a little sugar or stevia makes it taste great. It mixes with water much better than some other products.

Might take some getting used to
The coffee-flavored ONGS protein contains the same nutritional content as the other brand flavors (more or less), so I will just review the way it tastes, which is OK. I mix mine with Unsweetened Vanilla Flavored Almond Milk, which is what I use to make all of my shakes.
At first glance, when mixed, the coffee flavor is a bit more frothy than the ONGS Chocolate Malt flavor that I usually use. It also appears and is a touch thinner in consistency than the aforementioned flavor. The coffee blend seems to be attempting to achieve the taste of a slightly creamy and lightly sweetened flavor of coffee, which is probably not going to come across as offensive to anyone. The sweetness, however, seems to present a slightly generic taste to me, and which the other ONGS flavors I like do not seem to contain (this may just be a matter of preference-I am a big coffee drinker). My gf has suggested (as did one of the reviewers above), that if you mix a scoop of chocolate with the coffee flavor ONGS, it produces a desired effect, although I have not tried doing this thus far.
So, not sure I would buy this again over my favorite flavored proteins by this same brand, but this is supposedly limited edition, so it's all moot anyway.

Simply the best in every aspect
I tried many vanilla casein , whey vanilla and chocolate and other brands but this, THIS is the real deal! It smell good , it taste good, when you open the box it look so delicious you would want to eat it without anything , just from the bottle itself.
I tried to put vanilla powder in oatmeal and it just didn't work, this add a great taste to anything.
