Most coffee connoisseurs may stick up their noses to Maxwell and Folgers coffee brands, but they are nonetheless two of the most popular household coffees out there; however, very few consumers acknowledge any difference between the two. When consumers such as ourselves approach the coffee selection in any given grocery store, we are often faced with the re-occuring conflict of Maxwell House versus Folgers. So for all you conflicted coffee drinkers, avid and beginner, here is a post for you!
Being a devoted coffe drinker myself, I have certainly had more than my fair share of both Maxwell and Folgers coffee! After mass amounts of coffee consumption and a little research, this is what I’ve found:
I would say that the biggest difference is the intensity of flavour. It has been reported time after time that Folgers coffee is much more mild than Maxwell House, and I can vouch for that as well. Maxwell on the other hand tends to hold a stronger, more bold coffee taste, so for those of you that crave the jolting caffeine flavour to kickstart your day, you may prefer Maxwell House.
Although Maxwell may be best at satisfying our caffeine fix, many consumers agree that it carries a rather bitter aftertaste. This is a bit of a downfall of this brand, but in my opinion- totally worth it!
If you’re new to drinking coffee or are just looking for a comforting warm beverage, Folgers may be your best bet; however, if you’re looking to fulfill that bittersweet caffeine craving, Maxwell may be just what you need. If I had to choose one brand that I prefer between the two, I would have to pick Maxwell House- I enjoy the fierce flavour and also, their optimism break commercials just melt my heart!
As far as price goes, which is obviously a priority of my own, both brands are ultimately the same. Coupons for both brands are also common to come by, making them both financially responsible and feasible options!
