Rated 4 out of 5?by OfficeManagerLarry Black Silk is Deceiving Name
I am responsible for all coffee purchases in my office. We are a coffee dependent office. Despite its apparent coffee flavor, it lacked the texture of silk on the palate. One employee attempted to make espresso with this coffee and said, "it is just not black enough." The name misleads the drinker into thinking they will be transported into a fantasy land of tangled sheets and Dwayne Johnson, but really it tastes no different than Folgers coffee, to say the least. The coffee grounds also got clumpy when wet. It is as disappointing in flavor as the work ethic of one of our newer employees who focuses more on applying make up at her desk than on arriving to work on time and sober. I will say the caffeine impact is greatest when eating the grounds directly.

Rated 5 out of 5?by Demie Richly Bold and Silky Smooth Satisfaction
I just love the flavor of Black Silk first thing in the morning or any time of the day for that matter. While on Christmas vacation at my sister's home, I took along Black Silk grounds in a baggie. My sister commented that she liked the aroma and asked to have a cup. After her first sip, she stated that it is a nice flavor then asked what brand it is. She too is now enjoying the richly bold and silky smooth taste of my favorite coffee brand - Folgers Black Silk ... Mmmm!

My wife is a loyal Folgers drinker. She loves the Black Silk for its strong flavor. After two cups of her Black Silk she is ready to take on the world and in her happy place. She is then ready to pay bills, do errands, in general be active.
If a store is out of stock, we will not buy any other brand. So we keep a good stock at home and don't let it run too low.

I have always preferred dark roast blends, saw Black Silk about 2 maybe 3 years ago and never looked back. I even travelled 3 miles past regular store when they was out to get some. Now I live in a disabled housing complex and have made many converts there as well. I have to buy a couple extra containers a month for the less fortunate so they can have good coffee too. This could be the only coffee Folgers needs to make in my opinion. :-)
