Trader Joe’s Colombia Supremo, reviewed
Trader Joe’s Colombia Supremo is one of the mainstays of TJ’s coffee selection. It’s been available for some time and looks like it recently got a bit of a makeover, with a brightly colored label festooned with toucans, tropical flowers and tree frogs. It’s a medium roast, making it a coffee that is likely to appeal to just about all coffee drinkers as an everyday coffee.
Trader Joe’s notes that Supremo beans are “larger and more flavorful than other Colombian-grown beans,” and while I can’t compare them to all Colombian beans, they are quite large. The coffee has a lovey cocoa flavor with a hint of smokiness and a smooth aftertaste. It seems to be a little on the light side of the spectrum and, while it is good black, you might find yourself wanting to brew it a little bit stronger if you want the coffee to be dark enough to stand up to a lot of creamer.
