Folger's 1850 Trailblazer Ground Coffee - Product Review

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

I received a sample of this product to try in exchange for a review.

So, I don’t like coffee. I love the smell, but I have never liked the taste. That is, until a couple of years ago when a service I was subscribed to included a sample of Cafe Bustelo. Anyone who knows anything about me knows how in love with Cafe Bustelo I am. Since then, I have tried several of the big brands (Maxwell House, Folgers, Starbucks..etc) and the only thing I found that I like as much as Cafe Bustelo has been a brand called Pilon...which is essentially just Cafe Bustelo in a different package. I know this probably feels like I am rambling and fangirling over the one coffee I like, but I feel like it is necessary to know how little I know about coffee. I don’t know how to properly describe the taste, so this review...is not that great.

1850 is the new offering by the classic coffee company Folgers. When given the opportunity to give it a  try, I randomly picked the option Trailblazer without knowing what any of the options meant. I now know that the difference is the roast of the coffee (Trailblazer being a medium-dark roast). I prepared the sample the same way that I prepare my normal coffee ( I promise I won’t mention the name again.).   The smell was exactly what I expected for a coffee made by Folgers. It is that classic, nostalgic coffee smell. The taste surprised me and the only way I know to describe it is that it reminded me of a coffee flavored candy I have had in the past. There was a smokiness to it and it tasted very smooth. (Do people describe coffee this way?) Overall, I really enjoyed it and I think over time I may convince myself to try the other roasts. It definitely means that I now have a different coffee when I want something other than my usual choice.
