Roast: Dark Review Date: March 2005
Origin: Not Disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A rather aggressively roasted espresso. Delicate floral and fruit notes complicate an aroma that is toasty and almost burned. In the small cup medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, and a flavor dominated by a gentle but slightly sharp bittersweetness. The complicating fruit notes are a bit too dry to read as chocolate. Sweetens and rounds in milk but never quite blooms.

Notes: All coffees composing this blend are certified organically grown and certified Fair Trade, meaning they were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Gimme! Coffee is a small-batch roaster with four espresso bars and an irreverent but passionate vision of coffee. Visit www.gimmecoffee.com or call 877-446-6325 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: An espresso for those who enjoy the taste of the roast.
