  • 100% Arabica Instant Coffee

Roast: NA Review Date: March 2011
Origin: Colombia. All coffee of the Arabica species. Price: $8.27/8 ounces instant

Blind Assessment: In the aroma caramel and wet burned wood notes. Muted but heavy, bitterish acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Woody with less burned sensation in the cup, with a caramel and perhaps prune-toned sweetness. The finish is woody, bitter and astringent, with only the slightest hint of caramel sweetness.

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 11 cents per serving. Yuban is a brand of Kraft Foods. Visit www.yuban.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Not good, but not the worst of the instants on the shelf.
