Roast: Dark Review Date: December 2002
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: For a coffee from northern California, the home of ultimate and often bitter dark roasts, this one is quite delicate, subtly roasty but gently dry, unobtrusively sweet, with echoes of dry, high-toned fruit. "I have been coming to this shop for 10 years now," the nominating reader writes, "and they definitely have the best coffee in the world."

Notes: Has Beans is a retail and wholesale roaster founded in San Francisco in 1976. The company moved to Mt. Shasta, a town at the foot of the mountain of the same name, in the mid- 90s, and now distributes its coffees throughout northern California. Visit or call 800-has-beans for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Refined mountaineers and dark-roast drinkers.


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.
