Wet wood and salted meat dominate, though subdued. Hints of composty fruit and caramel. Negligible acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Lightens up a bit in the finish, but not much.
An instant coffee evaluated as mixed in proportions of 2.5 grams to 150 ml or 5 ounces of hot water. Assuming a larger cup size and a more generous 3 grams per serving, this product costs approximately 10 cents per serving. Maxwell House is a brand of Kraft Foods.
