Fairway Supreme Blend

I've been drinking Fairway Supreme Blend for about a week now. So far it has been a real pleasure to drink. Most notable is the aroma of the fresh beans even before they are ground. Out of the bag, they have almost a chocolatey scent to them. The beans themselves are also a lighter roast than the previously reviewed Fairway to Heaven Blend. Take a look are the darkness of the FtHB beans compared to the FSB beans.

Overall the taste is fantastic. Only the tiniest amount of sugar is necessary to balance out the flavor. A splash+ of half-and-half completes this wonderful cup of coffee. (Like my measuring technique?) At only slightly more per pound, $7.99, compared to FtHB's $6.99, it's well worth the extra dollar a pound. Don't mistake this, you can't go wrong with either coffee, but there's a smooth and completeness to the Fairway Supreme Blend that makes it really stand out. 

Bottom Line Rating: 4.5 out of 5

On an unrelated note to the taste of the coffee. Remember how I was raving about Fairway Market and how they placed the label on the bottom of the bag? Well not this time. Oh well, it's still a great cup of coffee! 


  1. Fairway gone in my area. Have you found a comparable blend?

    1. Yes, I'm sad that Fairway is closing. Recently I've been buying my beans from a local coffee roaster. It's a little more expensive than Fairway, but worth it.
