I've been meaning to try that one. Is it as good as the commercials would lead me to believe?

Yes.

Some of my reviews may be of help …

--> --> Pioneer Blend & Black Gold

--> --> Lantern Glow

Of course, there's also Trailblazer, Colombian Express, and Sumatran Exchange — all of which I've drunk though none of which I've yet reviewed.

Folgers 1850 Lantern Glow Fire-Roasted Coffee; Syphon brewed

Image

Continuing from where we last left off, I broaden my organoleptic horizons with "Lantern Glow". For some reason, I keep wanting to call this "Lamplighter". And which, offhand, seems a better name. But, a bean by any other name and all that. I should mention that I had a hard time sourcing this blend. I'd almost despaired of finding it, even thinking that Folgers had discontinued it or even that it was an urban legend or cipher — the chimerical product of a diseased mind obsessively chasing gustatory ghosts.

But nay. The squonk was sacked.

To get down to brass tacks, this pretty much met my prefabbed expectations, which — for the absentminded or the amnesiac — were set in the last exciting episode. To recap: "And though it is difficult to tell without a head-to-head throwdown (and which, even then, might be beyond my skillset's current keenness), I would almost contend that Black Gold has the exact same flavor profile as Pioneer, yet roasted to a darker shade." Aye. Lantern Glow seems, for all intents and purposes, a preternaturally instantiated, lighter shade of Pioneer Blend. Which makes it fascinating, uncanny and delicious all in one hot sip. This "Fire Roasting" process — a technologically obsoleted technique resurrected by Folgers — is a true treasure and the coffee lover should offer endless hosannas to Folgers for contributing to the cultural, historical, and aesthetic fabric of American life. For general observations on this process, see my review for Pioneer Blend.

One caveat. The bag copy notes this blend as being "Crisp" and "Bright". Bright, I get. Yes, it is somewhat bright, carrying a certain subdued soupçon of acidity through the silky shroud of fire-roasted richness. However, certainly not "bright" in the vein of a conventionally-roasted, Central American or Kenyan coffee of comparable shade.

But "Crisp"? Not so much. The flavor is round and rich, resonating on the tongue like a reverberant gong. There are no cutting-edges in the finish with which I would readily associate crispness. But such is a minor nitpick.

Get 'em. Try 'em. Find the blend you like and stick with it. Or not. You should like 'em all. They are that good. Or at the least, they are unique, valuable, and currently, irreplaceable.

$6.95/12 oz. at Giant Eagle Supermarket
So you're saying that Black Gold is the dark roast, Pioneer medium, and Lantern Glow medium or light roast. If I run across the BG I'll definitely try a lb. Thanks for the reviews.

:thumbsup:

And yes, Black Gold is the darkest of the original-series of blends.

To recap …

Firstly, there's the four original blends:
  • Lantern Glow (Light)
  • Pioneer Blend (Medium)
  • Trailblazer (Med-Dark)
  • Black Gold (Dark)
Then, there's the two single-origin coffees recently added to the aforementioned lineup:
  • Colombian Express1 (Light)
  • Sumatran Exchange2 (Dark)



1 Now renamed as "100% Colombian".
2 Now renamed as "100% Sumatran".

Our local market had a lb of the 100% Sumatran, and a lb of one named simply "Noir". I brewed a pot of the Sumatran tonight, it's an excellent coffee.

Edit:. The Noir I purchased is the True Dark. I just now found your earlier reviews for the Noir Series.

Tom's private blend (aka 3/4 fingerlakes coffee roasters to 1/4 columbian) It comes out: better flavor then diner coffee but smoother a coffee shop dark roast. Its a blend anybody will love. Brewed in a 10c chemex and drank out of a mason jar on my way to work
