Monk's Christmas Blend 2008 by Mystic Monk Coffee Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: December 2008
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Balanced, quietly complex aroma: ripe tomato, lemon, nut, flowers, milk chocolate. The aromatic notes deepen in the big-bodied cup; the chocolate darkens, an earth note turns up, tart lemon and sweet floral notes persist. Clean, rich finish.

Notes: Monk?s Christmas Blend combines eight different coffees. Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. Roastmaster Brother Java emphasizes his artisan approach to roasting and his commitment to quality. Visit or call 877-751-6377 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: With eight components this blend could end up blurred in impression, but it manages to make its aromatic layering readable and original.


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.
