Premium Coffee (Instant Coffee)
|Roaster Location:||Northfield, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Est. Price:||$8.99/8 ounces (226 grams)|
|Review Date:||September 2018|
Evaluated at proportions of 5 grams of instant coffee powder mixed with 8.5 ounces (250 ml) of hot water. Not attractive. Rotten suggestions (composted orange, lily) and acrid wood dominate, along with a metallic note. On the positive side, hints of prune, salty caramel, cardamom. Bittersweet and acrid in structure; lean but smooth in mouthfeel. Continued bitter and acrid in the finish.
This coffee was reviewed in the “supermarket” category in a tasting of soluble or “instant” coffees for Coffee Review’s September 2018 tasting report. Contains coffee of the robusta species. Yuban is a brand of Kraft Foods. Visit www.yuban.com for more information.
At 20 cents per serving, inexpensive. Not much else positive to say about it.
