Price/lb: $5.32
RATING: $$$$$


This is one of my favorite coffees available at ALDI.  The coffee is sold under the Beaumont name as Donut Store Blend. The price is good and the quality of the coffee exceeds expectations.
The coffee is a medium roast and has a very smooth flavor with a hint of sweetness perfect for a morning cup.  The coffee has become a favorite in the household and is always kept in the cupboard now.  It is difficult to compare to any brand coffee as it has it’s own unique qualties but it is similar to Dunkin’ Donuts in some aspects.

I recommend this coffee highly. The quality and flavor for the price are hard to beat. A very good cup of coffee at a great price.

Another coffee review focusing on one of the bargain bagged coffees available at ALDI. I have made a point to attempt to try as many of the ALDI coffee flavors available.  There are quite a few available priced at either $2.99 or $3.99 a 12oz. bag.
This coffee is labeled 100% Arabica French Roast Premium Blend.  The coffee comes in a 12oz. bag and is ground. This is a very good value coming in at $4.00 per lb.  The coffee has a nice sweet overtone with bold notes.  It is typical of a French roast from the other major coffee companies such as Millstone and Peete’s.  I would definitely buy this again and recommend it.

If you are looking to save a few dollars this is worth checking out if you enjoy a dark cup of coffee.

I am a huge coffee drinker and with the recent economic downturn decided that I had to save some money on my weekly coffee bill.  I usually buy Starbucks, Peets or Millstone and realized I was drinking over a lb. a week costing anywhere from $8.99 and up per lb.  The bill was quickly adding up.  Over the years I had tried various mass produced coffees: Melitta, Foldgers, Maxwell House and others but most made me feel nauseous or just didn’t agree with me so any savings from the premium brands were null.
I decided I would try the varying brands of coffee provided by ALDI under the BEAUMONT name.  This particular flavor is labeled as Premium Blend – Morning Dark Roast.  The coffee comes ground (it is not whole bean) much like you would find a Peet’s brand or ground Starbucks.  I found the flavor to be strong with a sweet and smoky overtone and was pleasantly surprised. The price per pound is more than reasonable especially when considering the overall quality of the blend.

Overall I would recommend this coffee and will definitely buy it again. It is not my favorite blend at ALDI but it does provide a decent cup of joe in the morning
