Time: Walmart coffee was rated the same as a similar Starbucks coffee in a recent taste test.
And no, the taste test wasn’t organized by Walmart. It was the taste testers at Consumer Reports drinking and comparing all the home-brewed cups of Joe available to consumers.
In the most noteworthy results of the blind taste tests, Walmart’s coffee, which costs $3.88 for an 11.3 oz. container, matched the taste produced by Starbucks. A 12 oz. bag of ground Starbucks runs $8.88 at Walmart, and typically over $9.50 at most grocery stores.
