Blind Assessment:

Disappointing for a 100% Colombian Arabica, even a Colombia presented in a roast-and-ground, canned format. Woody aroma with some pruny sweetness. Flat acidity, leanish mouthfeel. In the cup the wood persists and the fruit turns composty and unpleasantly fermented. Flat, astringent finish.


Sold roast and ground in a 10.3-ounce can; 70 cents per ounce. Composed of 100% Arabica Colombia coffees. 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.

Who Should Drink It: A particularly bad dark-roasted Colombia at the tail end of a bad year for Colombias generally.
