Has anyone tried Beaumont Coffee at Aldi's?

Another potential recession hedge manuever......Should I spend $4.99 for 34.5 ounces of this or pay the xtra $2-3 for Maxwell House

  1. If you don't like good coffee, what difference does it make?

      I love coffee! The dark roast from Aldi's taste just like Panera's

    2. Hi. I just tried my first cup this morning, and found your post after googling the brand after I had my first taste. I will have to tell you that you really should save the extra $$ and go back to Aldi if you haven't already! Personally, I don't love Maxwell House, but I have bought Folgers for years and the Beaumont is definitely worth the $3.00 savings (for me, anyway.) Have a great weekend :)

      1. I stock up on this when I visit my grandma... she is lucky enough to have Aldi less than 5 minutes from her!
        The decaf is not bad either, I keep some for when I want coffee with dessert. It's comparable to Folgers. Def worth the price. Aldi's version of Fiber One bars is also good. Bet if you post/search on the Chains board you will find lots of Aldi lovers there who can guide you through all the great stuff there.

          I have used (at Aldi's) Beaumont whole bean coffee that I grind at home for about a year. I buy the Java Jig reusable K-Cups from Walmart and fill them with fresh ground Beaumont beans. I have used Folgers drip grind for over 60 years (I am 72) and I find (for me at least) that the Beaumont Donut Store Blend is the best coffee that I have ever used including your gourmet coffee's.

        2. The "Dunkin Donuts-ish" bag of joe Aldi's is selling of late is excellent as well.

            Yes, I;m running out to Aldi's tomorrow!!!!!! I was at the grocery store today and the Price of coffee has soared- $8.99- $9.49 for your name brands standard 34 oz container...what's up with that??

            And a major BOO to FOLGER'S for shrinking the size of their containers on most varieties from 34.5 ounces to 27.5 or thereabouts

              OMG! The absolute best. I've been drinking this for over a half of year now since my son who's always on a budget turned me on to Aldi "Period". I have to say most everything at Aldi is as great as any other brand, if not better, i.e., canned soup, TP, Chips, etc. And the coffee, "Forget About It. Honestly, I like it better than the same size bag I used to buy from Starbucks. I thinks its actually better. Anyone agree?

                I realize that this link is really old, but I TOTALLY agree with you, paulispumponti! I have tried MANY coffees in my day (Starbucks, TONS of "exotic blends" at Costco, Folgers, organic blends, etc.). I have to say, Aldi's Beaumont Donut Store Blend coffee is THE BEST I've ever had. I have never looked forward to my morning coffee as much as I do with this. It's SO GOOD!

                1. re: gilado

                  I LOVE this coffee..... it IS better than Starbucks....and so much more economical. I buy the whole beans and use them in my Gaggia machine.
                  We can't decide if it's the coffee or the machine.... LOL

            2. I bought the Beaumont Costa Rican Blend beans a couple of weeks ago and I really like them. It isn't as good as the local coffee shop's in-store roasted beans but IMO, is better than Starbucks.

                Thanks for ressurecting this post!! On that note, they have a bag of Zambian roast that is really good too..... What a deal also on these 12 ounce bags $2.99-$3.99

                I still haven't tried the Beaumont big can coffe yet The 34.5 or so ounces at all of $4.99

                1. re: paulispumonti

                  I think I paid either $3.99 for the Costa Rican Blend. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other blends, too.
