Decaf Louisiana Blend Medium Dark
|Roaster Location:||Baton Rouge, Louisiana|
|Review Date:||July 2002|
Blind Assessment: Rich, almost disconcertingly distinct peanut tones dominate from aroma to finish. Supporting sweetness turns the peanut character agreeably fruity and chocolaty in the cup.
Notes: Peanut tones are sometimes perceived as a flavor fault in coffee, but the peanut character that dominates this CC's blend is sweet, complex and agreeable. CC's Coffee is the upscale specialty line of Community Coffee, a distinguished family-owned coffee company founded in 1919. Visit
Who Should Drink It: I could say lovers of Reese's Peanutbutter Cups, but that would misrepresent a sophisticated, unusual and refreshing coffee.
