This is good coffee. A while back, Chad was looking for a good morning cup. I know that we all love Alterra’s Cafe Voltaire and Caribou Obsidian. I also recommended Caribou Mahogany, but I don’t know if Chad’s tried that yet. I finally got around to trying Caribou’s signature coffee. And guess what, it’s pretty good!
It’s a blend of three or more coffees. The lion’s share is an Indonesia and I taste a distinct Costa Rica or mild Nicaragua and either a Colombia (unlikely) or some other South American origin coffee.
The aroma is one of very good medium-roast coffee and a bit of peppery spice.
This is a VERY well-blended coffee. It’s pretty full-bodied but not extreme. It is very sweet and syrupy with spicy notes and a very clean finish of bittersweet chocolate. Prepare to taste a bit of raspberry in there also.
This is a very good all-day cup. It’s great for the first cup of the day and still perfect as the finish of a big supper. I highly recommend this coffee to anyone looking for a new go-to coffee to sustain them through the long work days.
