Coffee that tastes like Eight O'Clock Coffee?
(Keokuk Iowa, USA)
What brand of bean would come close to the Eight-O'clock brand?ANSWER:
It's never easy trying to buy beans that match the taste you are used to when buying a particular brand you like.
Most branded coffees are made from a blend of beans, often from a variety of different origins...like a mix of Central American beans, plus some from the Far East etc.
In addition, each brand, whether it be Eight O'Clock or Starbucks, has its own secrets when it comes to how they blend and roast the beans they use.
Even when you buy a "Colombian" coffee from different companies, there can be a significant variety in tastes...because of the differences in where exactly the beans were grown, and how they were blended and roasted.
If you really like the Eight O'Clock coffees, there are certainly plenty of places you can buy them if you live in the U.S.
