I use their French roast decaf. It’s the best decaf I’ve found in single serve pods.

In brief, my impressions of the new Folgers "Noir" product line is that, though each coffee is smooth and drinkable as one might wish (especially at the projected price-point), there is nothing here which matches the incomparable singularity and visionary excellence of their 1850 line.

OTOH, unlike the 1850 line (of which each coffee in the basic series tastes like an incrementally darker iteration of an underlying, basic template), each coffee in the Noir line is radically divergent in its flavor-profile.

According to Folgers' PR dept, this series is aimed at bringing consumers unfamiliar with the world of dark-roast coffees [Is this species still extant in the wild?] a nonthreatening first-step into a larger world. By that metric, Noir is a success, though the line might offer little to grab and hold those adventurous drinkers already leagues-ahead of its target demographic.
  • Golden Dusk — Cinnamon and Stewed Onion aromatics. Medium body with a not-unpleasant, slightly sour finish. Unobtrusively charming, this dark-horse dark is the all-day blend for anyone.
  • True Dark — Candy Apple, Asparagus and Celery Seed aromatics. Bold flavor, though stolid and dry. Mimics a classic, dark-roast house blend made of Centrals and Souths.
  • Rich Satin — Sweet Potato and Maple Syrup aromatics. This seems positioned to emulate Oceanian blends. Very slightly earthy and round on the palate and again, a slight sourness in the end. For the timid, this kinder, gentler Sumatran is pleased to meet you. Nice stuff.
  • Smoky Midnight — Charred Pizza Crust and Blackberry Jam aromatics. Needless to mention that this is a French-roast analogue without the acrid bite of that Frankish export. A suitably charming denouement to the series and an enticing doorway to a whole-new world pregnant with possibilities.

I'm picturing myself ahead of the target demographic. Golden Dusk may be interesting. The first two lines of Smoky Midnight description sounds good. The third line? I don't know.

Anyway right now I'm having a cup of Bigelow French Vanilla Black Tea, with a dollop of milk, and a couple of vanilla wafers on the side.

I pretty much exclusively drink rich/dark/bold coffees, and the last Folgers I used to buy/drink was their Dark Silk. As for the Noir line, their aromatic descriptors are actually something of a turn off for me. The coffee might be fine, but those descriptors aren't.

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

What? Charred pizza crust, blackberry jam aromatic, and a world pregnant with possibilities doesn't do it for you?

Meanwhile, this morning I Brewed a pot of Starbucks K. Dragon, a bold dark roast coffee with great flavor. I'm planning to get a pound of the passport series dark roast this morning.

Komodo Dragon is a favorite of mine as well. It's my favorite from Starbucks, and my third fav overall. It comes in behind Carribou's elusive "Lacuna" and "Black Pedro" from my local tobacconist, The Pipe & Pint. Whenever you are in the area & able to make it to The Pipe & Pint, I highly recommend a pound or three of Black Pedro, as it is supremely dark, bold, and smooth. As I'm temporarily staying with my mom as we are between houses right now, there are 3 coffee drinkers in the house, and we go through a pound of Black Pedro about every 7-8 days. The upside to this is that it gives me an excuse to visit The Pipe & Pint weekly, and sneak in a tin purchase to add to the cellar along with my restocking of the coffee :chili:

Been a long time since I last drank K Dragon. Then again, been a long time since Cielo, as well. Both have left memorable tracks — a veritable host of fond memories.

Ah, what sweet sensations are engendered by My Mistress Caffeine!
