Blind Assessment: Sweet, quite smoky aroma, with floral top notes and suggestions of temperate fruit, pear perhaps. In the cup low-toned, smoky, sweet but salty, with chocolate undertones and continued hints of pear. The smoky tones carry into the finish.

Notes: This blend was packed and was evaluated in pre-ground format. It has an unusual cup character that can be plausibly taken as bluesy, or at least smoky. Superior Coffee is a large company offering a wide range of coffee products. It was founded in Chicago in 1908 and is now owned by food giant Sara Lee.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy the smoky, salty side of life.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
