Rich, deep, complexly fermenty. Raisiny fruit, baker’s chocolate, pungent mango and pine, a suggestion of caramelly bourbon whisky, a hint of flowers. Profoundly sweet yet deeply savory in structure. Full, satiny mouthfeel. Some sweetness and chocolate carry into a rich but drying finish.
This coffee is 100% Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. It is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Caribou Coffee is a retail roasting chain based in the upper Middle West whose rather irreverent motto "Life is short. Stay awake for it" belies a serious approach to coffee. Visit
Who Should Drink It
An admirably, indeed strikingly, unorthodox coffee from a major coffee company. If you are certain you only like pure, sweetly bright, classically clean high-grown coffees don’t bother with this one, but the open-minded should sample this deep, savory-sweet, whiskyish effort.
