The Coffee Detective website has been online since 2006, and its primary purpose is to help coffee lovers brew and enjoy a better cup of coffee.

However, as our audience has grown, we have also been able to serve the needs of coffee professionals in a number of different ways.


Coffee Reviews: Reviewing gourmet coffees in language every coffee lover can understand.

coffee tasting review

Professional cuppers do a great job, but sometimes the language they use to describe the tastes and flavors of coffees is a little technical for us mortal folks.

In our reviews we try to stick to everyday language, so all our readers can understand.

Basil Jones, Managing Director of Coffee Solutions Ltd, Kingston Jamaica, and master roaster, cupper and supplier of Ridgelyne brand certified genuine 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain® coffee said on reading The Coffee Detective review of his coffee...

"I love the review, this  guy knows his cupping, he is speaking my language when he describes tropical fruits, nuts,  molasses and he also went on to describe the lemony peaberry. Very few people are able to discern the lemony note that is a hallmark of a top notch peaberry roast." 

If you are the roaster or distributor of a coffee you would like us to review, please get in touch with us through our contact page.
