Eight O'Clock Coffee
Original Bean Coffee
|Montvale, New Jersey
Fermented notes, barely detectable in the acidy notes of the aroma, dominate in the cup, particularly as the coffee cools, turning from mild distraction to barnyard nasty.
Medium-light roast reveals fermented notes which turn barnyard nasty. A blend. Whole beans in valve pack. Thirteen-ounce bag $4.99, or $6.14 per pound.
Who Should Drink It
Anyone who wants to know how bad a fermented coffee can taste. In fruitier coffees brought to a somewhat darker roast mild ferment can be marginally pleasing, but not here, where the coffee isn't much to start with and the medium-light roast reveals everything.
