Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: $7.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: An understated coffee that rewards attention to its gentle virtues. Sweetly balanced roastiness and rich papaya-toned fruit in the aroma; in the cup delicately complex and quietly lush with low-toned, carnal fruit: apricot and papaya.

Notes: Served at Serenade Restaurant, Chatham, New Jersey. Chef-owner James Laird has turned Serenade Restaurant and its New French cuisine into one of New Jersey's most celebrated restaurants. T. M. Ward Coffee, founded in 1869, offers more than 250 specialty coffee choices. Visit or call 973-623-1202 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer subtle substance over flash.


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.
