Crack open a bag of Komodo Dragon Blend® and one thing will stand out immediately – a strong aroma that smells a little like a garden or baseball field after a fresh rain. This earthy characteristic is always my first clue that I’m about to enjoy an Asia/Pacific coffee. It’s a dominating scent that distinguishes the region’s coffees quite well.

Smell is only the first of four steps in the coffee tasting experience, so I dive right into the next – slurp . Proud of a noisy effort that would make … more »

MSI Coffee Tasting Club Week #3 - (Starbucks)RED East Africa Blend
As a 17 year Starbucks Coffee Company partner (employee), I have enjoyed the privilege of tasting some of the world’s finest coffees. I am especially thrilled to have the opportunity to savor (STARBUCKS) RED East AFrica Blend. Africa is the birthplace of coffee, and Starbucks has always cherished the amazing flavors and aromas of African coffees. And, with the opening of a Farmer Support Center in Rwanda, we’re working directly with farmers to help improve the quality and sustainability of their coffee for years to come. (STARBUCKS)RED East Africa Blend is balanced and complex, with delicate acidity and a flavorful interplay of sweet citrus, subtle herbal and savory spice notes. I … more »
