Folgers Gourmet Selections
|Roaster Location:||Cincinnati, Ohio|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||January 2007|
Sweet, round but crisp profile. Attractive nuance in the aroma - raisin, cedar, pipe tobacco, a hint of chocolate - fades quickly in the cup, leaving behind only the faintest shimmer of floral-toned chocolate. Sweet, distantly chocolate-toned finish, but quite astringent in the mouthfeel.
Purchased pre-ground in a sealed 11-ounce foil-laminated bag with one-way valve at a Safeway supermarket in northern California; 66 cents per dry ounce. This Colombia coffee was produced by some of the 600,000-plus members of the National Federation of the Coffee Growers of Colombia, an association of mostly small-holding Colombian growers whose reliably high-quality coffee, community support programs and sophisticated marketing campaigns around the Juan Valdez symbol together constitute one of the great successes of coffee history. Folgers is a brand of Procter & Gamble. Visit
