An example of what coffee professionals call a dirty or uneven coffee. At best nutty, midtoned, rather monotoned, without much bounce or resilience. At worst some cups displayed a rather unpleasant ferment while others were woody and cloyingly peanutty.
Purchased at Pathmark, whole bean in sealed 12-ounce foil bag with one-way valve; $4.39/pound. Presumably an effort by Procter and Gamble to inject a branch of the venerable Folgers brand into the whole-bean specialty world. Call 800-275-1967 for more info.
Who Should Drink It
Some Folgers 100% Colombias I have sampled were decent coffees in the traditional American breakfast mode, but I wouldn't recommend this bag to anyone.
