    Pasadena, California
  • Classic Blend

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: January 2008
Origin: Guatemala; Papua New Guinea. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, softly acidy, dominated by fresh-cut wood notes, with a second wave of sensation suggesting a sort of herb-toned dark chocolate. The chocolate notes carry directly into an impressively sweet, round finish.

Notes: At Trader Joe's in Northern California, $9.99 per 32-ounce can ground, or $0.31 per ounce. Trader Joe's is an innovative discount gourmet chain currently with stores in at least twenty states but no mail order. Visit www.traderjoes.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a very quiet morning cup. The sweet wood notes are soft and agreeable rather than dull and board-like.

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.
