  • Original Bean Coffee

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: May 1997
Origin: Various Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Fermented notes, barely detectable in the acidy notes of the aroma, dominate in the cup, particularly as the coffee cools, turning from mild distraction to barnyard nasty.

Notes: Medium-light roast reveals fermented notes which turn barnyard nasty. A blend. Whole beans in valve pack. Thirteen-ounce bag $4.99, or $6.14 per pound.

Who Should Drink It: Anyone who wants to know how bad a fermented coffee can taste. In fruitier coffees brought to a somewhat darker roast mild ferment can be marginally pleasing, but not here, where the coffee isn't much to start with and the medium-light roast reveals everything.


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.
