Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: May 1997
Origin: Various Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A somewhat darker-than-supermarket-norm roast style helps mute acidity and sweeten the profile. Virtually no top notes, but a smooth, sweet-toned bottom with an attractive pruny finish.

Notes: A somewhat darker-then-supermarket-norm roast style mutes acidity and sweetens the profile. Blend, pre-ground and canned. Twelve-ounce can $3.95, or $5.27 per pound.

Who Should Drink It: Seattle palates stuck in one of the four or five towns in the country without a specialty coffee store. This canned effort to stave off the Starbucks surge is lighter roasted than most dark-roast aficionados would prefer and lacks both the expansive aroma and residual acidity of good specialty Supermarket Coffees, but given the can, the price and the context it remains a respectable effort.


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.
