Blind Assessment:

Clean, simple, woody. Sweet, mildly charred wood, molasses, caramel in aroma and cup. Soft, muted acidity; medium body, slightly lean mouthfeel. Muted flavor fades quickly in a clean but drying finish.

Notes:

Purchased in pre-ground format at Walmart in San Leandro, California at an equivalent of $5.21 per pound. Great Value is a proprietary brand of Walmart, the world’s largest retailer. Visit www.walmart.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Nothing wrong; nothing much right here either except for the very attractive price. A clean but very simple, woody cup.
