|Review Date:||November 2012|
Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned and balanced, though muted. Fresh-cut fir, chocolate, caramel, perhaps an apricot-like fruit, all rather subdued, in aroma and cup. Soft, faintly brisk acidity; leanish but smooth mouthfeel. Flavor fades quickly in a clean, mildly drying finish.
Notes: Purchased in whole bean format at Walmart in San Leandro, California at an equivalent of $7.31 per pound. This coffee is 100% Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Sam’s Choice is a proprietary brand of Walmart, the world's largest retailer. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a cleanly delicate medium roast at a reasonable price.
