Roast: NA Review Date: June 2001
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The virtue here is a round and gentle sweetness, the weakness simplicity. The sweetness fades a bit in the finish.

Notes: Simple but round and gently sweet. Polly 's Gourmet Coffee, founded in 1976, is a pioneering Southern California specialty coffee roaster. Polly 's has stayed true to the original vision of specialty coffee: one store, one roasting machine, one coffee guy, zero stockholders.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer sweetness and simplicity to range and challenge.


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.
