Beaumont Coffee Premium Blend French Roast
French Roast Review
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.

100% Arabica - Morning Dark Roast Coffee
Premium Blend Morning Dark Roast Review
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
