To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Background and reference: I'm able to enjoy a cup of folgers black silk or breakfast blend as well as espresso, starbucks, mild to very dark roasts...etc.
I have no idea where this coffee came from or the roast on it, but it does NOT taste good at all. I tried drip, french press, even a pour over thinking/hoping it was getting the weird aftertaste from sitting on the grounds too long. Nope. The flavor is very stale, sharp, and acidic. Even using cream, sweetener, or flavoring agents like syrups or my wife's flavored creamers did nothing to hide or take the edge off the taste.
Tried giving it to my in-laws who are maxwell house/folgers "whatever you got" diner-style coffee drinkers and they threw out the 1st pot they brewed. Something is definitely off or wrong here. Now what to do with the 5-1/2 tubs of this stuff we have left 🤦♂️
I used to drink Pike Place Roast daily but switched to this & never thought I'd switch to something made by Folgers. No it doesn't taste exactly like PPR but it's similar & for the price difference seems like a much better deal to me.
After trying numerous brands and blends this is the one that hit the mark. Full flavored but not too powerful. Smooth taste. Six containers is a lot for one person but it can be kept in the freezer to assist in maintaining freshness plus the "best by" date was a year out. Purchasing in bulk brought the price down too.
Folger's is the only coffee my husband likes. This blend is kinda hard to find in store, so I'm very happy I can get it shipped to me. Better than running around to 5-6 different stores and coming home with nothing!
