Coffee Reivew - Classic Roast Coffee by Folgers
  • Folgers (Costco)

    Orrville, Ohio
  • Classic Roast

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2012
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $11.04/48 ounces

Blind Assessment: Flat and woody with a cloying, disturbing sweetness and not much else in way of flavor or aroma. The sweetness could be taken as slightly composty or slightly chocolaty or both. Virtually no acidity; smooth but leanish mouthfeel. The composty sweetness is most intense and unpleasant in the cup, less so in the finish.

Notes: Purchased in pre-ground format at Costco in San Leandro, California for an equivalent of $3.66 per pound. Folgers is a 160-year old coffee brand founded in San Francisco, acquired in 1963 by Procter & Gamble, and sold in 2008 to the J.M. Smucker Company. Visit or call 800-937-9745 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Very low price; very, very poor quality by any standard that we know of.


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.
