The Undercover Coffee Caper with Keith Kaiser - WDRB 41 Louisville News

The Undercover Coffee Caper sends Keith Kaiser on a quest for the best

Posted: Updated:
The Undercover Coffee Caper began with an idea of tackling a touchy subject.

Coffee and who has the best.

WDRB's Keith Kaiser knew he couldn't test every coffee available in the world or even in Louisville.

He chose coffeehouses with local ties and loyal customers:
Please & Thank You, VINT Coffee, Heine Brothers' Coffee, Quills Coffee and WDRB.

The fun part of the investigation was using a disguise, covert cameras and his friend Dinky the Donkey to connect with local coffee connoisseurs and collect samples.

Flavor, aroma, texture, finish, and other characters comes down to personal preference and a keen palette.

Keith put the pressure on one man with the blind taste test.

Java expert David Lange, Vice President of Business Development for Consumers Choice Coffee, has more than 19 years in the coffee business.

He is responsible for knowing the subtle differences of the 65 varieties of coffees and teas Consumers Choice provides as well as educating the consumer on which blend is best for their needs.

He is also an instructor for the Specialty Coffee Association of America Espresso Labs and a featured columnist in Food & Dining Magazine.


From the samples that Keith collected, Quill's Coffee in New Albany came out on top.

You can't really stop by WDRB, the fifth location on the adventure, for a cup of coffee.

But you can visit these other places and try them yourself.

Please & Thank You
