  • Wake-Up Healthy Echinacea-Infused Coffee Beans

Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2005
Origin: Not Disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Balanced, muted aroma with orange notes and a hint of milk chocolate. In the cup sweet, rather rich, balanced. Not much nuance, a hint of bittersweet chocolate perhaps. Pleasantly rich and sweet in the short finish; maintains sweetness in the long with little astringency.

Notes: Health angle: Infused with Echinacea, an herb whose supporters claim stimulates the body's immune system and helps ward off infection. Caffe Botanica small-batch roasts and naturally infuses its coffees with herbs and minerals. Visit www.caffebotanica.com or call 541-349-0243 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: This quiet but pleasant coffee is appropriately soothing, adding sensory reassurance to its health claims.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
