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.
Love, love, love this coffee! Was told years (and I mean YEARS) ago that I had to stop drinking coffee due to serious acid-reflux issues, but I just couldn't do that. So I searched until I discovered Folger's Simply Smooth, and I am glad I did. It is incredibly good coffee, but does not cause the awful pains that regular coffee does. I drink only one cup, in the morning, so it HAS to be incredibly satisfying. This Folger's does not agitate the stomach, thus no acid burn/pain, and no acid reflux (which is a horrid thing to have). Difficult to locate Simply Smooth in supermarkets. If they carry it, it is the small container, running around 6 to 7 or so dollars. When I found this large container here on Amazon, I decided that this would be how I'd get my coffee from now on. No searching store shelves, just to see if MAYBE they carried it. No running out of my morning brew. Amazon has a container that is a bit larger than what you'd find in stores (when I used to be able to locate it), and at such a money saving price. Now I'll never run out of my Folger's. I've recommended this coffee to family/friends who also have stomach issues, and they also have shared that they are very pleased. Thank you, Amazon, for carrying this product, and please continue to do so!
I have gerd so bad that is landed me in the hospital last year thinking I had pneumonia. Doctors could not figure out what was wrong with my breathing until finally a lung specialist mentioned that acid reflux will burn your lungs. Yikes! I got really good, quick, not eating foods or drinking liquids that triggered my acid reflux and had to give up my greatest love! COFFEE!! A year now has gone by and acid reflux is better so I started drinking decaf. Ugh! Not the same! AND still made my tummy funky. I even tried regular coffee because I got mad and thought I was doing so good and maybe decaf chemicals was bad or something, but no way!! Total pain! I went on a hunt and ordered this coffee because of good reviews and tried a little and it tasted SO good and I felt great!! Woohoo!! SO happy!! THEN the REAL test! The HOLIDAYS!! ba ba ba bum...... I ate whatever I wanted for a few days and thought there would be no way I could have ANY coffee for awhile! NOPE!! I am drinking this coffee right now and I'm SO HAPPY it feels great going down, soothing and tastes so good!! Thank you Folgers Simply Smooth! :D
I bought 6 of these. I'm about half way through consuming the package of 6 of the Folgers Columbian Medium roast coffee. Since I started drinking this exact batch, I have started getting headaches for 2 days at a time. I rarely get headaches. I have finally realized that it's from this coffee. I noticed after drinking 1 cup of this coffee, about 1 hour later I would start getting a headache. So yesterday I switched to a much cheaper Columbia coffee from a different brand, and the headache went away, and hasn't returned. The headache went away as soon as I stopped drinking this Folgers coffee. Historically Folgers coffee has been my go-to coffee because it never causes headaches and is usually amazing. However, I did a Google search and both Maxwell House and Folgers brand coffee have been blamed by other people, with anecdotal reports of nausea and headaches. It's only anecdotal. It's not proof of anything, and what I'm describing may be totally incorrect, and merely a coincidence. If it turns out to be a coincidence, I will come back and update this post. As of now, the headache went away with the cessation of this Folger's coffee, and the switch to a different coffee, so I can only assume that this is a bad batch of Folgers coffee.
I was hesitant to order coffee from Amazon at first. Exposure to weather elements can change the flavor of coffee and no telling how long it has been sitting on the shelf and what it has been exposed to, but I bought coffee from Amazon! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and packaging! I just started drinking coffee two months ago and have ventured out to try several flavors. This is by far my favorite! I will even let it cool off and pour it over ice and add milk. Its delicious! I had seen others reheat their coffee and I tried it with a different brand and it was gross, BUT I tried it with this purchase and it was delicious. This is my go-to coffee. I prefer a dark roast so you know :) I like the plastic container it comes in too. I use them to put my composted material in and for storage. I can always find a use for these containers!
6 years ago I had a major issue with GERD or acid reflux (who would know which), and i switched my diet around. It was at that time that we started drinking this particular, low acid coffee. I stopped eating all crappy foods and I quit everything but coffee, which I just can't do, being European. Europeans literally invent reasons to drink coffee all day long, since it's more of a ritual than a dietary need. For the past 6 years, I thought I am tolerating this coffee well, but right now I am going thru yet another acid ordeal, even though I am not consuming junk food (never did), I don't drink or smoke (never did) and I cut all sugar and snacks. I noticed that my throat goes tight after the first sip of coffee, I lose my voice partially and I will usually have small coughs for up to 2 hours after I have coffee. At this point, I do not know if my gut minds the chemicals in Simply Smooth, or the actual coffee in general; is it only this brand or all coffees. No idea. I am not a hundred percent sure this is safe to drink, since they use chemicals to remove acidity from the beans, and I am guessing it would be the best to just stop, but until I either find an alternative or die from acid, I have to stick to this. :(
I gave this a one star for sheerness, but a 10 because It's coffee! If it is sheer i don't think i would want it. This is God's perfect drink for waking you up. There shall be no sheerness to this wonderful nectar from the Lord. Remember in the Bible under chapter Hebrew. I have forgotten a lot from bible study as a child but I'm sure there was something about "as I walk through the valley of dark roast I shall fear no decaffeinated" or something along those lines. Regardless its been a long time and this is coffee... good, classic, roasted coffee. Drink it and enjoy
This is a great coffee, especially if you have GERD or reflux. I only wish Folgers would offer this in K cups for my Keurig coffee maker. I use the little baskets to make my own, but it would be handy not to have to always do that. But otherwise this is an awesome product. I bought this for my brother because he doesn't need decaf. I generally use the decaf myself.
I discovered this blend years ago. If you like regular Folgers you probably won't like this. This is actually good coffee. I'm used to Starbucks and other better coffees. I grind my own beans. This is really good off the shelf ground coffee. I suspect some of the negative reviews are from regular Folgers drinkers who are used to their coffee tasting like cigarette butts. I like my fresh ground better, but considering what this is it comes in way higher on my list than I would have ever thought.
