  • Premium Instant Coffee

Roast: NA Review Date: March 2011
Origin: Not disclosed. Contains coffee of the Robusta species. Price: $9.45/8 oz. instant

Blind Assessment: Burned, salted meat sensation dominates in the aroma, perhaps softened by a hint of caramel. Dull to non-existent acidity, medium body. Sweet but burned and rubbery in the cup and finish.

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

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.
