  • Vienna Roast

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 1998
Origin: Various Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Some cups of the sample are marred by a slight but distracting hardness, probably a fault in either drying or storage of the green coffee. The untainted cups are gentle, chocolaty and sweet, with a touch, perhaps, of flowers.

Notes: Not rated due to a taste fault in some of the cups of distracting hardness. The untainted cups are gentle, chocolaty and sweet, with a touch of flowers. Vienna roast is a common name for blends brought to a roast style darker than the local norm but not so dark as to merit names like espresso, Frnech, or Italian.

Who Should Drink It: The best-seller factor:I'm assuming that the taste fault in some cups of the sample is not typical for this blend, and that the gently fragrant cup is the attraction for those who have made this coffee a local best-seller.


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.
