    Bellingham, Washington
  • India Balmaadi Estate

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2009
Origin: Nilgiris, southern India. Price: $8.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, balanced, quietly complete cup. Gently pungent acidity, silky mouthfeel. Tight-knit complexity: suggestions of nut, flowers, stone fruit, chocolate, lemon. Tightens a bit in a still sweet finish.

Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown. Founded in 1971, Tony's Coffees & Teas is a wholesale specialty coffee roasting company. Although the Tony's roasting facility is in Bellingham, the company maintains distribution and training centers in Seattle, Washington and San Jose, California. This coffee is available only through the website. Visit or call 800-448-8804 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who value subtlety rather than drama. Take this naturally sweet coffee black.


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.
