I was recently gifted a bag of Zabar’s wonderful coffee by a fellow coffee lover. She swears by the blend saying it was a nice smooth cup, with great taste.
Zabar’s is a supermarket food market in New York, While I have never been to the store myself, I do love good food with attention being paid to quality, and this coffee is no different. A true checker board roost with half the bash being darker roast with a little oil visible, and the rest being slightly dryer and more of a medium roast.
I’ve tried it as both a drip be, and a French press… Both good. But the true surprise was the espresso… It floored me, by being both strong and smooth. A pretty clean mouthful with a bright acidity that wasn’t too overpowering, just enough to make it taste fresh. If you are looking got a great coffee at a reasonable price this is s nice change if pace blend!
Belated correction: Zabars is not a kosher market. It’s owned by a Jewish family, and they do sell some kosher products (about 20% of their selection is kosher) but they are not a kosher supermarket. A kosher supermarket is 100% kosher. A kosher store is by definition prohibited from selling even a single non kosher product. EVERY single supermarket in NY sells the same amount, or MORE kosher products as Zabars. And I’m a huge fan and shop there at least 2x a week. But it’s NOT a kosher supermarket. Important error. Especially for the many who only shop kosher certified stores. Needed a correction.
Thank you I’ll correct it!
