Chock Full O’ Nuts New York Classics 100% Colombian
|Roaster Location:||Harrison, New York|
|Review Date:||June 2003|
Blind Assessment: Lovely balanced, low-toned, bittersweet, richly understated cup. A slightly darker-than-supermarket-norm roast mellows the acidity nicely and nudges the fruit toward chocolate. The finish is a touch bitter.
Notes: Purchased at ShopRite supermark; whole bean in sealed foil bag with one-way valve; $8.92/pound. New York Classics is a specialty line of the traditional supermarket brand Chock Full O' Nuts, owned by Sara Lee Coffee & Tea. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A versatile chocolate-toned cup that does particularly well with milk or whitener.
