Maxwell House Original
|Tarrytown, New York
Very sweet aroma, with nut and perhaps slight floral and chocolate notes. In the cup cloyingly bittersweet wood and nut robusta character with continued faint chocolate and floral suggestions.
Purchased pre-ground in a 39-ounce metal can at a Safeway supermarket in Northern California; 26 cents per dry ounce. Maxwell House is a brand of Kraft Foods. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Those who want a relatively clean (ferment and mildew free) version of the supermarket robusta cup.
