  • Gridge's Coffee & Roasting

    Cookeville, Tennessee
  • Breakfast Blend

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

Blind Assessment: Co-cupper Danny O'Neill calls this coffee "a solid cup, well-balanced ... fruity up the middle" (84). Ken found it balanced as well, though he reads the fruit as "a dry, fruit-toned chocolate that wants to be rich but is a bit too lean and simple" (85). Both were disappointed by a mildly astringent finish.

Notes: Gridge's is a one-location roasting company and cafe that appears to bring a genuine hands-on artisan approach to its roasting procedures. Visit or call 931-525-3900 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Milk should make the dry chocolate tones bloom.


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.
