Nestle Beverage Company
MJB Hawaiian Blend
|Roaster Location:||San Francisco, California|
|Review Date:||May 1997|
For a canned coffee, considerable aroma: full, complete, with a silky, slightly vanilla-toned sweetness that grows in power as the coffee cools. Enough acidity to keep the coffee from dying, and a solid if obvious bottom.
Given the price and the can, a remarkably good coffee, true to the gentle Hawaiian profile. A blend, pre-ground and canned. The Hawaiian component of the blend almost certainly is a Kauai coffee from the Island Coffee Company. Twelve-ounce can $3.49, or $4.65 per pound.
Who Should Drink It
A possibility for an aficionado on a very tight budget, or again, someone who can't find a specialty store. Given the price and the can, a remarkably good coffee, and true to the gentle Hawaiian profile.
