Fair Trade Organic House Blend by Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters Review | CoffeeReview.com
Roast: Light Review Date: February 2009
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Orange- and lemon-toned fruit, a hint of cedar in the aroma. Soft acidity, smoothly silky mouthfeel, very complex in the cup: pipe tobacco, cocoa, a hint of flowers, orange and lemon. Orange and lemon in particular saturate the sweetly pungent, slightly astringent finish.

Notes: Available in a 12-ounce valve bag at $11.95. This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit www.johnsonbrotherscoffee.com or call 608-256-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: The socially and environmentally committed who don't want to give up on elegance.


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.
