Eight O'Clock Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Montvale, New Jersey|
|Review Date:||January 2000|
Blind Assessment: Just enough sweetness to make the smoky, burned tones bittersweet and cocoa-like rather than simply bitter. And just enough lightness and lift to keep the burned tones from smothering the palate.
Notes: An adequate dark-roast coffee for dark-roast drinkers on a severe budget. Sold whole-bean in a foil valve bag. Cost per ounce: $0.23.
Who Should Drink It: An adequate dark-roast coffee for dark-roast drinkers on a severe budget.
