Private Reserve Espresso by Caffe Artigiano Review |
  • Caffe Artigiano

    Vancouver, British Colombia
  • Private Reserve Espresso

Roast: Dark Review Date: October 2006
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Suave, cedar- and chocolate-toned aroma with floral top notes. In the small cup medium-bodied, rich, and very smoothly and sweetly cedar-toned. The chocolate and flowers return to complicate the cedar in the long, round finish. In milk rather lean in mouthfeel but expansively chocolaty with a continued suggestion of flowers.

Who Should Drink It: Those espresso drinkers looking to combine pungent and smoky with smooth and sweet.


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.
