Tanzanian Gombe Reserve by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review | CoffeeReview.com
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: August 2009
Origin: Gombe growing region, western Tanzania Price: $9.49/12oz

Blind Assessment: Rich, deep, balanced coffee with tight-knit complexity in aroma and cup: night flowers, orange, berry, raisin. Delicately bright acidity, medium body, simple but cleanly rich finish.

Notes: This coffee is offered in cooperation with the Jane Goodall Institute, the organization founded by animal researcher and conservationist Jane Goodall to support ongoing research into chimpanzee behavior and protect chimpanzees and their habitats. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: A gentle version of East Africa flowers and fruit and a fine cause.


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.
