Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 149 - Organic Sumatra Coffee
In the ever elusive search for Trader Joe’s best coffee, we invested in
yet another can. This one we bought at
the Orlando Trader Joe’s. It is the 8th
Trader Joe’s coffee we have tried this year (we usually each drink one cup of
joe every morning).
Organic Sumatra Coffee on the shelf in Orlando
Gotta say, we still haven’t found it (“it” being the ideal, delicious,
amazing cup of coffee).The last one I reviewed
(Ethiopian on Day 138) was the best so far with a 4.25 rating.
This one, Organic Sumatra, is boring.
It bills itself as having “smooth, earthy notes” but the “notes” aren’t
strong enough to really be tasted I guess.
It is not that it is BAD, it is just that it is blah. Not enough taste to get me jump started in
the morning. (Note on how I prepared
this: freshly ground the beans right
before making coffee, heated water in a kettle, and used a French press. See?? It
SHOULD have been delicious! J )
Sure, it'll do, but it is not an amazing start to the day
We will keep trying!!As soon as
this can is gone I am sure another experiment awaits us.
