Thanksgiving Blend by Mystic Monk Coffee Review |
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2013
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $13.99/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Richly pungent; chocolaty and earthy. Roasted cacao nib, freshly turned earth, plum-like fruit and a carnally sweet floral note reminiscent of heavily scented lilies or trumpet flowers. A salt-savory edge deepens the cup. Flavor resolves toward dark chocolate and vanilla in a gently drying finish.

Notes: This is a special seasonal blend with limited availability. Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. Roastmaster Brother Java emphasizes his artisan approach to roasting and his commitment to quality. Visit or call 877-751-6377 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Deep, complexly original blend echoes many of the Thanksgiving season’s sensory themes.


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.
