Folgers Coffeehouse

I received a free sample canister of Folgers Coffeehouse through Folgers Coffee Sippers Club to facilitate my review. My review is honest in my own words.

20170215_114455I never thought I’d try Folgers again, but this roast is a game changer. It’s mellow, dark, sultry, and inviting. It’s my new favorite winter roast to always have on hand. You can easily dress this roast up or leave it black and be pleased with the results. It’s versatile and I’d like to use this one in baking. It doesn’t leave a bitter residue on your tongue either because it’s a light body. The AromaSeal ensures that this is as fresh when you get it as it was when it was ground at the factory.

A nice touch was the the new container, too, because it keeps coffee fresher longer. I saw the storing tips said to put it in the fridge, which is a huge no-no for coffee that deteriorates the roast. I’ve left mine in the container on the counter in a cool, dry spot. A must try for anyone looking for an affordable coffee to always have a on hand.

It says you can cold brew or French press it, and the grind is coarse enough that this could work. I have yet to try it cold brewed which is on my list as the roast is inviting enough to be steeped in this way. It’s on my to-do list as I thoroughly indulged in this Folgers roast.

Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend

I received complimentary K-Cups from Folgers through Crowdtap. My review is impartial and 100% my own.

I used to never like Folgers, but ever since Black Silk came out, I’ve actually started to enjoy them and they are super affordable. Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend is a medium body that packs a nice rich, cafe like frothy sip.

I didn’t like sugar in it as it’s sweet enough for me in flavor. I loved the brewing aroma, and the flavor was smooth, complex, and breakfasty. I love how innovative and flexible Folgers has been. It was my dad’s favorite growing up, always brewed regular in his big green traveler Thermos that he took every morning to work.

It is always going to be my favorite value brand, and with so many different ways to decorate it, I am never going to get tired of it. They have been doing the Medium Dark roast extremely well and I appreciate how versatile they have been in this rocky market. It’s a classic, homey staple from my youth that has a fighting spirit to appeal to tastebuds of yet another generation.

I highly suggest if you love Breakfast blends. Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend needs to come out as a cold/iced brew next!
