Taster’s Choice French Roast Instant Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Glendale, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Est. Price:||$9.69/7 oz. instant|
|Review Date:||March 2011|
Flat, burned-board aroma, with a hint of pruny chocolate and a significant hint of salt meat. Sour, bitterish acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The chocolate makes some headway in the cup, but gives way quickly to a salty-sour, burned board character as the coffee cools.
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 15 cents per serving. Visit www.tasterschoice.com for more information. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Offers neither the rich, pungent bite that coffee drinkers look for in dark “French” roasts nor much of anything else.
