Coffee Review - Breakfast Blend Rainforest Allliance by Sam's Choice
  • Sam's Choice (Walmart)

    Bentonville, Arkansas
  • Breakfast Blend Rainforest Alliance

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2012
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $5.52/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned and balanced, though muted. Fresh-cut fir, chocolate, caramel, perhaps an apricot-like fruit, all rather subdued, in aroma and cup. Soft, faintly brisk acidity; leanish but smooth mouthfeel. Flavor fades quickly in a clean, mildly drying finish.

Notes: Purchased in whole bean format at Walmart in San Leandro, California at an equivalent of $7.31 per pound. This coffee is 100% Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Sam’s Choice is a proprietary brand of Walmart, the world's largest retailer. Visit for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a cleanly delicate medium roast at a reasonable price.


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.
