Hill's Bros. Coffee
|Roaster Location:||San Francisco, California|
|Est. Price:||$8.99/32 ounces|
|Review Date:||February 2020|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly nut-toned, roasty. Hazelnut, baking chocolate, gently scorched cedar, gardenia, prune in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with barely perceptible acidity; thinnish mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to hazelnut and scorched cedar with a hint of baking chocolate.
Notes: This coffee was tested as part of a survey of single-origin coffees available in U.S. supermarkets for Coffee Review’s February 2020 report. Purchased at a Woodman’s Market in Madison, Wisconsin. Processed by the washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Hills Bros. Coffee is a San Francisco-based brand founded in 1900. Visit www.hillsbros.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A sweet though muted Guatemala cup: roasty cocoa and nut.
