Lady Lee Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Dublin, California|
|Review Date:||May 1997|
Blind Assessment: The vanilla / nut tones in the aroma fade quickly in the cup, giving way to a rather hard, characterless acidity that eventually takes on prune-like inflections in the finish.
Notes: Not a bad canned coffee, vanilla tones in the aroma fade to a hard acidity. A blend, pre-ground and canned. Private label for Lucky Stores, a supermarket chain. Thirteen-ounce can $3.39, or $4.17 per pound.
Who Should Drink It: People who find themselves in a Lucky supermarket and need some inexpensive coffee. Not a bad canned coffee, although the flat, insistent quality of the acidity would oppress me no matter how I brewed it.
