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.

Notes:

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.
