|Coffee Origin:||Colombia and Ethiopia|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Est. Price:||$11.99/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||February 2016|
Mild, sweetly pungent. Apricot, brown sugar, hints of dark chocolate and lily in aroma and cup. Round, backgrounded acidity; plump mouthfeel. Flavor makes a rather faint last stand in a quiet finish.
Purchased pre-ground in a 12-ounce foil bag with one-way degassing valve at a Safeway supermarket in northern California. This sample was roasted, roast-dated, and packaged at Peet’s Alameda, California facility. Peet’s, now a privately owned corporation under the John A. Benckiser Investment group, has arguably managed to maintain its essential identity during a slow, careful expansion from its original, intensely loyalist base in the San Francisco Bay area.

Who Should Drink It
This coffee is considerably lighter roasted than a typical Peet’s coffee. Its gentle pungency and apricot fruit is pleasing, though rather muted.
