MJB Hawaiian Blend
|Roaster Location:||Glendale, California|
|Review Date:||January 2000|
Blind Assessment: Low-toned but solid, with a nice balance of understated acidy tones and sweetness. Some muted dry fruit notes contribute a throaty murmur in the background. Lacks intensity and range, but sound, round and satisfying.
Notes: Low-toned but solid, with a nice balance of understated acidy tones and sweetness. The main Hawaii component of this good-value canned blend probably comes from a large, meticulously run farm on the island of Kauai. Sold pre-ground in a vacuum-sealed steel can. Price per ounce: $0.30.
Who Should Drink It: Brewed drip this is coffee equivalent of comfort food: ingratiating, undemanding, agreeable. Lacks intensity and range, but sound, round and satisfying.
