House Blend Medium Roast
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Est. Price:||$11.52/32 ounces|

Blind Assessment: Balanced, quiet, clean. Gently charred cedar, hints of sweet earth, almond, dark chocolate, grapefruity citrus in aroma. Simplifies in the cup to muted almond and dark chocolate. Roast-rounded acidity; light, leanish mouthfeel hints at silkiness. A suggestion of dark chocolate carries into a rather rich though drying finish.
Notes: Purchased in whole-bean format at Costco in San Leandro, California for an equivalent of $5.75 per pound. Kirkland is a proprietary brand of Costco, a membership-only wholesaler and retailer with stores in most areas of the United States. This Kirkland Signature coffee was roasted by Starbucks. It is not a medium roast, by the way, but a dark roast. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Decent, balanced dark roast at a very attractive price.
