Blind Assessment: An understated coffee that rewards attention to its gentle virtues. Sweetly balanced roastiness and rich papaya-toned fruit in the aroma; in the cup delicately complex and quietly lush with low-toned, carnal fruit: apricot and papaya.
Notes: Served at Serenade Restaurant, Chatham, New Jersey. Chef-owner James Laird has turned Serenade Restaurant and its New French cuisine into one of New Jersey's most celebrated restaurants. T. M. Ward Coffee, founded in 1869, offers more than 250 specialty coffee choices. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer subtle substance over flash.
