  • Daybreak Morning Blend

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2006
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Both co-cupper Danny O'Neill (85) and Ken (87) read foresty notes in the aroma: "fresh greenery and earth" for Danny, "cacao and tree bark" for Ken. The cup was both balanced and quite complex, with fruit notes ("cherry toned" for Ken, "ripe apple and berry" for Danny) combining with continued forest notes that suggested dried flowers or herbs.

Notes: Caribou Coffee is a large retail roasting chain based in the upper Middle West whose rather irreverent motto "Life is short. Stay awake for it" belies a serious approach to coffee. Visit or call 888-227-4268 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A midsummer, gardening sort of coffee.


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.
