Nestle Beverage Company
Hills Bros. Coffee
|Roaster Location:||San Francisco, California|
|Review Date:||May 1997|
A sweet nuttiness dominates here, without offense but also without much intrigue or energy. The nut-like tones may harbor a hint of acidity but no grace notes and little depth or dimension.
A sweet nuttiness dominates, without offense. A blend, pre-ground and canned. Twenty-six-ounce can $6.06, or $3.73 per pound.
Who Should Drink It
The same folks who made 1950s diners fashionable again. Hosts who want to scandalize their snob friends by serving something called, with ingratiating simplicity, "Coffee." What? Coffee? What kind of coffee? Unfortunately for those who glamorize the simplicities of post- World-War-II years, not a very good coffee. But then, not an offensively bad one either.
