  • Maxwell House Original

Roast: Medium Review Date: January 2007
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Very sweet aroma, with nut and perhaps slight floral and chocolate notes. In the cup cloyingly bittersweet wood and nut robusta character with continued faint chocolate and floral suggestions.

Notes: Purchased pre-ground in a 39-ounce metal can at a Safeway supermarket in Northern California; 26 cents per dry ounce. Maxwell House is a brand of Kraft Foods. Visit for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who want a relatively clean (ferment and mildew free) version of the supermarket robusta cup.
