Eight O' Clock Colombian Coffee Wins Consumer Reports Taste Test

According to Consumer Reports, "Folgers, Maxwell House, and Starbucks are America's best-selling ground coffees. But all three were iced by Eight O'Clock Colombian coffee in our taste tests. As for Starbucks, it didn't even place among the top regular coffees and trailed among decafs."

CR stated, "Our tests of 19 coffees also show that some of the best cost the least. At about $6 per pound, Eight O'Clock costs less than half the price of Gloria Jean's, Peet's, and other more expensive brands."

Consumer Reports has perked my curiosity! I have never tried Eight O'Clock Coffee. I don't know that I have ever thought of purchasing a pound. Probably because I drink coffee throughout the day. I'll see how Eight O'Clock tastes at Five O' Clock and let you know!

I agree with Consumer Reports: I really like Eight O' Clock Columbian and its $3.97 a pound at Wal-Mart. Great way to cut some expenses.
