  • New Mexico Pinon Coffee

Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2006
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: (Whole-bean blend of coffee and roasted pi?on nuts) Very full nose with a sort of toasted apple and cinnamon character plus an odd, cloyingly sweet woodiness. In the cup quite full-bodied with a continued dominating sweet, soapy wood character overriding pleasant chocolate, molasses and perhaps apple and lemon notes.

Notes: A blend of coffee and roasted pinon (pine) nuts. New Mexico Pinon Coffee specializes in producing this award-winning blend and other unusual coffee products using artisan roasting techniques on an antique Royal 25-pound roasting machine. "Sobre los gustos no hay disputa - In the matter of taste there is no argument" reads the front of the Pinon Coffee bag. It is not clear to me whether this statement is a disclaimer or a boast. We purchased this blend in an outlet of Trader Joe's, the chain of natural and gourmet food stores. Visit or call 800-572-0624 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who think they may enjoy the flavor of roasted pine nuts. I am not among you, but, as the package says, "Sobre los gustos no hay disputa."


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.
