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.
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. :(
This is one of those coffee jars I bought which I never got to finish it. It has stayed on my shelf for many months and I rarely touched it. It does not taste good at all.
To improve its taste, what I tried, was that I ground them further. The more fine the ground, the taste gets improved better.
It's strange that I got a bad taste on this Folgers coffee because I did try this brand at my office before. I liked it, which was the reason I decided to buy this 24.2 oz for home usage. Maybe it was one of those bad batches, but I was very disappointed so far.
I love coffee. But lately I have been having issues with it. Googled a bunch and found out I am not the only one. Finally I can drink coffee again without having to run to the bathroom halfway through a cup and zero stomach pains. 5 stars for no bathroom issues with this coffee 2 stars because of the taste. I wont say it terrible, but just not like the normal folgers I've been drinking for the last 20 years. First day I didnt even finish the whole pot. Now on 3rd day I'm used to the taste but it's just not as good. But, it's better then having stomach cramps and pooping lava for 30 minutes.
This used to be the best tasting coffee ever, and then it changed drastically. When I called their customer service regarding the drastic change, they told me that they changed the roasting process. They ruined what used to be the best coffee on the market.
I stopped drinking Folgers after college over 20 years ago when I was introduced to more expensive coffee. I started drinking Peet’s and only occasionally drank anything else. Due to Covid I decided to downsize the coffee budget and try this out due to the good reviews. This isn’t bad at all. Im use to strong coffee, so if you like a mild flavored coffee this might be too much for you. This is also cheaper on Amazon at $6.00. This sells for $9.00 in one of my local grocers.
Daughter brought me coffee from local competitor and I realize that I $9+ a can on here vs.$5.14 at local major chain. Just food for thought. I love having coffee at my door because I don't drive anymore but...
So I went by what I thought were good reviews and I have so say I’m disappointed in this product. I always loved Folgers but something has changed. I just don’t enjoy it anymore. Yes it might be a smoother, weaker blend but the taste is not there. I actually did buy this and put it on a subscribe but promptly cancelled that. The expectations of this coffee aren’t there. So I’m trying another brand again and I’m hoping the reviews aren’t fake. Fingers crossed!!
I didn't notice that the Simply Smooth 6 pack (23 oz containers) I ordered on Amazon were Mild flavored instead of Medium. Flavor is too mild for me unless I really up the coffee grounds . Next order I will make sure I order Simply Smooth Medium flavored. Wish all of the Simply Smooth coffee line was cheaper but it is easier for the stomach and those who have IC.
What I dislike is that they're showing a photo of a canister of Black Silk so I thought I was ordering Black Silk! What my daughter received was a canister of French Roast! That is not the same thing! The taste is different and the canisters are different! It's kinda false advertising! They will drink it and deal with it, but its not what I ordered! The Site needs to update the photo for sure!
Bought for mom and dad...no accounting for taste. I have only partakes in Folgers during an emergency or with people who have suspect taste in general. Not my huckleberry for sure. This was Covid Quarantine provisions for family members in isolationist their request. Coffees coffee to them so.....
