That's important because coffee is the world's second largest commodity after oil, worth $60 billion annually, with 25 million people growing it in 50 countries on some 30 million acres, many of them in fragile, tropical ecosystems such as rainforests. Kraft is the largest United States coffee roaster, so their commitment to this certification is a big deal. Rainforest Alliance certification requires farmers to adopt best practices and meet very rigorous criteria for conserving wildlife and improving the lives of the people who grow and harvest the beans. The Yuban line guarantees that at least 30% of the coffees that it packages come from Rainforest Alliance Certified producers.
All very interesting and commendable, but the bottom line is "How does the coffee taste?" Well, I've made a number of pots since I've rediscovered the brand, and I must say that it performs pretty well. The grind is a little fine for my taste, but it does ok in the coffeemaker. The color is rich and dark, the aroma is inviting, and the taste is very smooth and robust. It's a good value at the price point, and I'll probably find myself buying it again. It makes a fine "everyday" wake-up call, and the environmental benefits make it even sweeter to drink. Enjoy!
Having previously used "Subscribe & Save" option, I have paid as little as $11.64 (less than $0.18 / oz) and as much as $21.64 (almost $0.33 / oz) - that was before the subscription was discontinued - by Amazon. Now it's back! With the return of "Subscribe & Save" for the Yuban Original 33 oz cans, the price has dipped back into that range at $19.21 ($0.29 / oz). The price may vary but this is still a great cup, so I'm back on board . . . for now.
***2013 update: Since leaving this review, we've found another coffee that is even smoother and less bitter: Community Coffee's Cafe Special, which we can get through Amazon at $25 for a 2-pack of 32-oz. bags with free super saver shipping. (Many stores sell it, but Amazon has proved to be the best deal going.) We've been drinking this blend for well over a year now, and are very pleased with it. I'd never been able to drink coffee black until Community coffee came into our house! That coupled with our outstanding BUNN coffee maker (also purchased on Amazon) make for one outstanding cup of coffee. Everyone who visits us and has had a cup has commented on how good it tastes.Community Coffee Ground Coffee, Cafe Special, 32-Ounce Bags (Pack of 2)

I really like the taste of Yuban. I think it has a nice light and smooth taste compared to the strong bitter taste of some of the other brands. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Frogsong

Since my favorite Columbian coffee decided to shrink the can and raised the price, I went back to Yuban....
Honestly, no difference.... Read more
The taste of the Yuban is different. It is not as smooth as before. It might be a different blend, it might be the weather where the coffee was grown, I don't know. Read morePublished on June 16, 2013 by jeejee
Not only is this coffee better tasting than what you'll find at Starbucks, it's better priced too. I've tried many other brands, and this is the tastiest I've had.Published on January 6, 2013 by Madoc
