Trader Joe's New Orleans-Style Coffee with Chicory
Nathan Rodgers, his wife Sonia, and their friend Russ Shelly and his wife Sandy set out almost two years ago to review the cult grocer's some 4,500 products for their site What's Good at Trader Joe's?, and so far they've covered more than 300 products. While the reviewers are fans of Trader Joe's, they take reviewing seriously — their first review was even negative. Here's their process:
• They rate products on a scale of one to 10, 10 being the best.
• For any post, two people rate the product.
• Reviewers give their overall impression and up to five points each.
For Russ, Sonia, Shelly, and Sandy, Trader Joe's New Orleans-Style Coffee with Chicory fell into the category of Top 4 Coffees and Teas. Their review of the product follows:
New Orleans-Style Coffee with Chicory (7/10 points)
"It's a dark roast of Arabica goodness, but doesn't taste burnt and the bittersweet touch of chicory makes it unique. Russ raises a good point in his review: if Trader Joe's can take something so unique and tasty out of New Orleans, why not throw the good people of Louisiana a bone and build a TJ's somewhere in the state?"
