Most of the best coffee grown in the DR is for export, so what we can generally buy in stores is not great. Serviceable, but not great. But thanks to my work in some of the mountain communities, I'm able to get some that's grown by the families up there (small scale family growth, for localized trading). It's good enough as is, but I'm really interested in learning to do some roasting myself. Most folks up there roast it in big aluminum pots over a fire, so there's no control. It's typically over-done, which leaves it very earthy and some times bitter (unless you know who's good at it). Y'all got some good resources for learning about roasting beans? I know absolutely nothing....

I was scanning the shelf for some peach tea, and suddenly thought I saw a "Throat Cut" tea. What a name for a tea, I thought. On closer inspection, I found that it was actually Throat Coat tea. Interesting.

Folgers 1850 Premium Blend Fire-Roasted Coffee; Syphon brewed

Image


This is robust. Not aggressive. Not rough. Not bitter in its finish. Rather, it's silky in its smoothness. But it's remarkably stout. No peaks; no valleys. No nuance. There is an ever-so-slight sourness that emerges, but never obtrudes, as the cup cools. This may be a function of natural-process coffees (Brazils?) being used or, else, of the fire-roasting process (as long, slow roasting processes can sometimes have this result). The bag-aroma is also slight, which may also be an effect of the slower roasting, but this translates to no demerit to the quaffing-quality. More kick-ya-in-the-boo-boo than Dunkin' and more bucolic than Continental wannabes, this is an American manifesto manifested in a cup. A stolid, button-down blend for the chuckwagon crowd.

Thanks for the excellent review of this coffee. I have never heard of the 1850 coffees. A new Folgers line? Very nice.
