Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A delicate cup with impressive complexity: Lemon, smoky spice and milk chocolate notes carry with subtle variation from aroma through finish. In the cup, shows a fine balance of sweet acidity and a subtle roastiness, the roast making itself felt mainly in the smoky spice. The five cups I sampled displayed some unevenness; otherwise I would rate this silky, aromatic blend even higher.

Notes: Of the some twenty-four Starbucks offerings reviewed here over the past several years this blend, composed of certified organically grown coffees, may be the most impressive. It is one of Starbucks' "Commitment to Origin" line of limited release coffees. Visit or call 800-782-7282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Starbucks scoffers.


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.
