Trader Joe’s – Organic Nicaraguan Coffee – Whole Bean – Food Review


TJ, trader joe, Nicaraguan Whole Bean Coffee , price, reviewOctober 16, 2017

This coffee is somewhat: weak, bitter and bad tasting.  The negatives go away some on cooling to a slightly sour taste.  While not especially good for a Trader Joe coffee, this is still likely better than some coffees at other supermarkets for the same price.  While taste is a personal preference, and some people may like this coffee more than other coffees, there are better coffees at Trader Joe’s for the same price or less.

The coffee is labeled as organic.  The coffee is packaged in a tall, thin bag which makes it somewhat difficult to get the coffee out, especially near the bottom of the bag.

And if you look at the label this is a “honey processed” coffee.  I guess some things don’t change no matter where people live.  “Oh honey!  Can you go process some coffee for me.  And, take out the trash.”

Price $8.99 (12 ounce bag)

    The best coffee. Unfortunately they are carrying it any longer. Hopefully they will bring it back.

      Happy that you liked this coffee. You’ve probably noticed, but in very tiny print on the bag it says “limited edition”. We’ll have to take them at their word and hope they rotate it back on the shelves soon. At least at my Trader Joe’s, they seem to have reduced the number of different everyday coffees on the shelves and rotated in new coffees for short periods periodically. The downside of course is, once we find something we like, it’s gone the next month.

    Really …? Honey processed? Did not see you reaching for that one. 🙂

      The back of the bag describes the less controversial honey process where they don’t clean all the fruit off the bean before roasting, which may also explain why the coffee tastes like anything but honey.
