Maxwell House Rich French Roast
|Roaster Location:||Tarrytown, New York|
|Review Date:||January 2000|
Blind Assessment: Remarkably sweet, and rather heavy-bodied. The sweetness here is purely a taste sensation, however. No fruity or other aromatic nuances complicate it. The only intrigue is provided by a hint of hardness or mustiness.
Notes: Sweet and rather heavy-bodied. No fruity or other aromatic nuances complicate this canned coffee. French roast often describes a very dark, almost burned roast. This French roast, like most of its canned competitors, is roasted only slightly darker than the norm. The absence of the term arabica in the contents description ("100% Coffee") almost certai
Who Should Drink It: Not for those who love very dark roasts for their intensity, but rather for those who choose them to avoid acidity and brightness.
