Blind Assessment:

Rich, roast-rounded. Baker’s chocolate, hazelnut, fir, brown sugar in aroma and cup. Gentle, balanced acidity; crisp, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavors consolidate in a dry, spicy finish, with chocolate lingering into the long.

Purchased pre-ground in a 12-ounce foil bag with one-way degassing valve at a Target location in northern California. Offering everything from baked goods to frozen foods, Archer Farms (“Tasty Food Tasty Price”) is a premium foods house brand of the Target Corporation.

Who Should Drink It: Those looking for value and the convenience of a pre-ground coffee that still manages to deliver a quietly distinctive cup.
