Daybreak Morning Blend by Caribou Coffee |
  • Caribou Coffee

    Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • Daybreak Morning Blend Light Roast

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2013
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $12.99/16 ounces

Blind Assessment: Soft, nut-toned. Almond, fresh-cut cedar, ripe orange, a hint of roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Round, backgrounded acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is rather quiet but a hint of cacao-like chocolate persists.

Notes: Like all Caribou coffees, this blend is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning the coffees composing it were produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Caribou Coffee is a retail roasting chain based in the upper Middle West whose rather irreverent motto "Life is short. Stay awake for it" belies a serious approach to coffee. Visit or call 888-227-4268 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a gentle morning cup, low in acidity, balanced, unassuming and agreeable in character and aromatics.


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.
