  • Taster’s Choice 100% Colombian Instant Coffee

Roast: NA Review Date: March 2011
Origin: Colombia. All coffee of the Arabica species. Price: $4.19/1.4 oz. instant
 

Blind Assessment: Sweet, caramelly aroma with a hint of nut-toned chocolate. Balanced though flat acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. In the cup almost cloyingly sweet: nut, caramel, a hint of raisiny fruit. Clean, rather rich finish when hot. Generally the cup deteriorated as it cooled, turning slightly sourish with a very faint off-note in the finish that suggested sulfur.

Notes: An instant coffee evaluated as mixed in proportions of 2.5 grams to 150 ml or 5 ounces of hot water. Assuming a larger cup size and a more generous 3 grams per serving, this product costs approximately 32 cents per serving. Visit www.tasterschoice.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: One of the two best instants we tested for our March 2011 reviews. When hot relatively free of the various processing taints that haunt soluble coffees.

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.
