  • Rip City Blend

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

Blind Assessment: Seductive aroma: sweet Meyer lemon, roasty chocolate, balanced and elegant. The lyric lemon and chocolate notes survive a sharp roastiness in the cup, but finally lose their way in the rather astringent finish.

Notes: Boyds Coffee is a large, technically sophisticated wholesale and food service roaster with a long history of quality and innovation. Visit or call 800-545-4077 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a balanced, bittersweet dark roast, particularly those who enjoy it with milk or whitener.


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.
