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

Blind Assessment: A simple but very balanced, sturdy dark roast. The aroma is intense and roasty with sweet cedar notes and perhaps little flickers of chocolate and caramel. Less nuance in the cup, but roundly and richly bittersweet without a trace of burned notes and perhaps some cedar-toned fruit. Clean, complex short finish with only a hint of astringency in the long.

Notes: Health angle: Acidity lowered through treatment of the green beans before roasting. Hevla Coffee is a wholesaler of roasted acid-reduced coffees. Visit www.hevla.com or call 888-838-7318 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Acid-avoiding dark-roast drinkers, or anyone who enjoys a richly dark-roasted coffee without the usual tongue-drying astringency.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
