Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: February 2003
Origin: Papua New Guinea; Timor; western Java and north-central Sumatra, Indonesia. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: An almost impossibly sweet, smooth dark roast, cleanly roasty, without bitterness. Complex but almost subliminal hints of meaty fruit, apricot perhaps, with patience suggest chocolate.

Notes: Originally founded by the legendary Alfred Peet, one of American specialty coffee's pioneers, Peet's is now a publicly traded corporation that so far has managed a slow, careful expansion from its intensely loyalist base in the San Francisco Bay area. Peet's signature, very dark "deep" roast is often imitated but less often duplicated. Visit www.peets.com or call 800-999-2132 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those interested in the Peet's signature "deep" roast at its best: a roast style dark but round in mouthfeel and magically free of astringency or bitterness.

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.
