- Medium roast signature blend.
- Smooth, full-bodied taste.
What a joke.
Some People Can Make the Best Coffee with “Chock Full O’Nuts”
Mom’s coffee comes out with a deep, dark flavor that is absolutely yummy after dinner. It manages to revive the adults even after a huge Thanksgiving meal.
Three Stars. My advice would be to try this affordable coffee if you have the magic coffee touch. But if you are a mere mortal like myself, stick to more idiot proof brands. Or only buy one experimental can.
And yes, alas… no nuts in Chock Full O’.
THEIR COLUMBIAN COFFEE IS BETTER — BUT THIS ‘ALL PURPOSE’ VARIETY IS STILL BETTER COFFEE THAN OUT OF A VENDING MACHINE
It is supposed to be “better coffee than a millionaire’s money can buy” according to the jingle I heard countless times on radio and TV in the 1960s. Well, let’s not get carried away.
This coffee is reputed to have been used daily in Manhattan for decades, since 1932, at the “Chock Full O’Nuts” coffee shops that peppered Midtown for nearly half a century until 30 years ago. We can, of course, still purchase it at our local grocery. It does have a strong but somewhat mellow taste for mainstream pre-ground coffee. If I can’t find Yuban locally, I will settle for the ‘Columbian Chock Full O’Nuts’ before this one.
This is a good product [better than most] and a good value, but Yuban seems more full bodied and much more mellow than this or even their ‘Columbian’ offering.

Best coffee I’ve found
Amazing everyday cuppa joe
Who knew it’d become an addiction? Since he and I both prefer our brew on the strong side, it works pretty well using three level scoops plus one somewhat-heaping scoop to four carafe cups of water. The ratio seems to work well in both our brands of automatic coffee makers, whether we use a paper or gold cone filter. You might want to try it daily for about a week, tweaking the ratio, before making up your mind.
It’s a good deal if you can find it on sale, although it’s still more than brands like Maxwell House.
I’m not a coffee snob, but in my book, this beats Starbucks, Caribou Coffee, Folger’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, even Tim Horton’s–at least for an everyday coffee. We both buy the classic, which seems to have a rich, deep sort of taste that’s so good to wake up to.
Here in Michigan we’ve been able to buy it in the Meijer grocery chain and occasionally at Rite Aid pharmacy. Unfortunately it’s getting harder to find–my guess is that people confuse the retro-looking can (which I personally like) with other cheapie coffees. It may not be gourmet but this brand o’ caffeine has become my habit o’ choice.
OK now I know I’m not crazy!
We like strong coffee in our house and we use a Cuisinart coffee maker. I only need to use 1 level and 1 scant scoop for 9 cups – but I do put the maker on the 4-cup setting so it steeps a little longer in the basket.
