|Roaster Location:||Irvine, California|
|Coffee Origin:||East, Central, and southern Africa|
|Review Date:||February 2005|
Blind Assessment: Simple but deeply rich aroma, with a distinct raisin/prune complication. The cup displays a gentle acidity wrapped in a deep, fundamental sweetness, with muted notes of dusk-blooming flowers, papaya, caramel, raisins. Simple but long, clean finish.
Notes: A blend of coffees from East, Central and southern Africa. Diedrich Coffee is a large, publicly-traded specialty coffee chain headquartered in southern California that offers an impressive selection of single-origin and blended coffees at its many locations and online. The company was founded by Martin Diedrich, a third-generation member of a coffee family whose multi-generational odyssey extended from Costa Rica to Vienna to Guatemala and finally to the U.S. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy comfort without boredom.
