Wolfgang Puck Reserve
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||April 2004|
Blind Assessment: Impressive aroma: lush, low-toned apricot fruit. In the cup a full body with a nice heft in the mouthfeel, but the pungent fruit turns increasingly salty and bitter as the cup cools.
Notes: Wolfgang Puck and his associates are developing a line of coffees that are now served at Wolfgang Puck cafés and slated to be offered at Wolfgang Puck's white table cloth restaurants. Plans include eventually include offering these coffees to wider markets. We sourced three Wolfgang Puck coffees for this month's article. This "Reserve" selection, pre-ground and packaged in two-ounce fractional packs (certainly not the best and freshest way to deliver coffee) was considerably less impressive than its brand-mate, the Wolfgang Puck Vienna Blend.
