Gloria Jean's Coffees
Jamaican Blue Mountain, 2001-02 Crop
|Roaster Location:||Irvine, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Blue Mountain growing region, eastern Jamaica.|
|Review Date:||March 2003|
The full-bodied, quietly rich cup with its low-toned fruit and dusk floral notes is classic Blue Mountain. But the aromatics are a bit faded and the cup shadowed by a hint of mustiness, both of which suggest that this coffee is perhaps a bit past its prime.
Gloria Jean's is a pioneering specialty coffee franchise chain. Gloria Jean's coffees are now sourced and roasted by California-based Diedrich Coffee. Visit
Who Should Drink It
This faded princess of a coffee till demonstrates the body and low-toned complexity of the Blue Mountain cup.
