Roast: Light Review Date: February 1997
Origin: Various Price: NA

Blind Assessment: For such a relatively light roast, not particularly acidy. In fact, once past the classically rich, fragrant nose, rather flat. Perhaps the coffee arrived a bit stale. Full-bodied enough to please those who like to ride the classic American roast profile while relegating acidity to the back seat.

Notes: A classic American (light) roast profile though not particularly acidy.

Who Should Drink It: People who like supermarket coffee but can do without the flat, sour aftertaste. Best drip-brewed; the low acidity makes this one a good choice to drink black.


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.
