Pungent dark-roasted blend. Scorched wood and pruny sweetness in the aroma soften and complicate in the cup: dark chocolate, raisin, hints of lemon and savory cardamom. Surprisingly smooth, silky mouthfeel. Flavor thins and fades in the finish, though the pleasing dark chocolate suggestion persists.
Combining coffee from Indonesia, Central and South America, this blend is Rainforest Alliance certified, in this case meaning a minimum of 75% of the blend components were produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Caribou Coffee is a large (second largest in the U.S. after Starbucks) 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
