Which is the smoothest coffee?
Smooth Coffee on a mild day outside.
For several years I've been drinking Schuil's cappuccino blend coffee then suddenly last year they changed something (although they won't admit it).
I'm not sure if they've changed their roasting process or who they buy their beans from, but I use a French press and I'm fairly positive it's nothing on my end. ... Anyway, it was a "medium dark" coffee that had a rich coffee flavor with no bitterness or acidic aftertaste.
It was super smooth ... Since then I've tried myriad other coffees (Higher Grounds, Newman's Own, Eight O'Clock, Maddie & Bella, etc.).
Over the last year I've spent a TON of money trying to find a really good coffee and my question to you (or your girlfriend) is, ... what is the richest, smoothest coffee you've had and where can I get it?
Please help me if you can.
Interesting question. I bet – and hope – we’ll get a lot of suggestions below from people who have their own favorites.
And that’s the thing...one’s assessment of what constitutes “smooth” can be fairly subjective.
In my book a smooth coffee should never be a weak or mild coffee. It’s too east to be “smooth” when the taste is light and without body.
I look for a coffee that has a strong body, but is without harsh spikes of either acidity or flavor notes like citrus or even sweetness.
Smooth has to have body, but still be even, without jarring notes.
Some coffees, like Dunkin’ Donuts, have smoothness in the job description. When you are brewing for everyone, your coffee has to have a strong coffee taste, but without surprises.
Coffees our readers have recommended include Tully’s, Coffee AM, Choc Full O’ Nuts, Gloria Jean’s and Gevalia.
By region, you might want to try coffees from Central America.
And if you want to go high-end and expensive, get your hands on one of my my personal favorites,100% Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee
I hope this helps.
