Coffee is one of my morning indulgences! Kona coffee is one of my favorites, but since I have been spending time with my daughter, I have been introduced to a great new coffee sold at Walmart stores, called Sam’s Choice Ethiopia Arabica Coffee.
My daughter had been raving about this coffee for months, but I had to actually taste it for myself to appreciate it. Now when we serve Sam’s Choice Ethiopia Arabica Coffee to guests they all ask us about it and want to know where they can purchase it.
Sam’s Choice Ethiopia Arabica Coffee is a “Fair Trade Certified” product, and the package we have is a ground coffee of medium roast. The bag contains 12 ounces, and there are tabs at the top of the package that allow you to keep the contents fresh.
The back of the bag states that the world’s oldest varieties of coffee come from the Kaffa forests of Ethiopia. This area is supposedly known for their delicate and naturally sweet coffee. Sam’s Choice claims to use the very best of the coffee bean, roasting it with “Split Second” precision. Then then claim that the coffee is packaged in a manner that brings the consumer exceptionally flavorful and fresh tasting coffee.
The directions say to use two tablespoons of coffee to six ounces of water, but I personally like my coffee a little bit on the stronger side. If you like the strong tasting coffee that is served in upscale restaurants, I think you will like the flavor of Sam’s Choice Ethiopia Arabica Coffee.
Even when brewed as a strong tasting drink, there is no bitterness to this Sam’s Choice Ethiopia Arabica Coffee, it is very smooth! I read that the majority of coffee beans sold on the market today are indeed Arabica coffee, but the better versions are made with the very best Arabica coffee beans. Since this is a medium roast coffee, it is not dark enough to produce the heavy or strong taste, which is exactly what I prefer. I don’t like coffee that is so dark it has a burnt flavor.
We store this coffee in our refrigerator, and the bag has lasted for a good month, yet the coffee at the bottom of the bag tastes as good as when it was first opened. Considering I am a consumer who will spend three to four dollars for a good cup of java from a coffee shop, this Sam’s Choice Ethiopia Arabica Coffee seems like an indulgence for me. It is definitely a coffee that I will plan on serving to my guests for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
