  • Classic Roast

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: March 2002
Origin: Not Disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Dominated by sweet grainy nut tones overlaid with a sour, musty ferment. I can think of no analogy for this odd combination of sensations because human beings normally don't consume products that are both fermented and mildewed-tasting.

Notes: Sold roast and ground in a 13-ounce valve bag; 28 cents per ounce. Call 1-800-937-9745 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Another study in the impact of cheap Vietnamese mass-processed robusta coffees on the common American cup. (See The Robusta Fuss.)


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.
