Fair-Trade Breakfast Blend
|Roaster Location:||San Leandro, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Central and South America.|
|Review Date:||July 2006|
Both co-cupper Danny O'Neill (83) and Ken (87) admired an aroma that was "sweet and spicy" for Danny, "rich, deep and sweetly smoky" for Ken. For Danny the cup was "muddled" and woody, for Ken slightly astringent in structure but nevertheless pleasantly bittersweet with a rich cocoa character that strengthened as the coffee cooled.
Certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. The Organic Coffee Company, headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, specializes in organic and socially and environmentally progressive coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It
A bracingly bittersweet and edgily astringent Fair-Traded breakfast cup.
