Blind Assessment: Burned, salted meat sensation dominates in the aroma, perhaps softened by a hint of caramel. Dull to non-existent acidity, medium body. Sweet but burned and rubbery in the cup and finish.
Notes: 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 13 cents per serving. Yuban is a brand of Kraft Foods. Visit www.yuban.com for more information.
