Aldi…a place where things are cheaper. Aldi is owned by the same people that bring us Trader Joe’s – a grocer I am more familiar with. It’s a little different – quarter for a cart, no bags at the checkout, limited choices of coffee (last one is probably not a big deal unless you are me). Beaumont coffee is the brand they offer and I believe it is only offered at Aldi. I was there buying some milk and other things and decided to try some.
I got French Roast Ground because I am currently not around a grinder and Aldi did not supply one for me to use. So I brewed this in a 12-Cup brewer. This is not a first time and not my first choice. I do prefer a french press but I was limited in my options for this one. However, I know it is safe to say that there are better French Roasts available to purchase. This is a cheap option but sometimes value is not what the best indication of a smart purchase. I would go elsewhere.
Quoth the bag:
