Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2009

Blind Assessment: Delicately complex coffee. Nut, dark chocolate, raisiny fruit, a hint of flowers carry from aroma through silky bodied cup to a flavor-saturated though rather short finish. Gentle, lemon-toned acidity.

Notes: Available in a 16-ounce valve bag at $11.45. Established in 1963, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is a large Los Angeles based roaster and retailer with over 700 locations in twenty countries. Visit or call 800-832-5323 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Admirers of the subtle and graceful.


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.
