  • 90 Mile Stretch Espresso

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

Blind Assessment: Very sweet-toned aroma with floral hints. In the small cup medium-bodied and slightly lean in mouthfeel, crisp, cedary, with raisiny, licorice-toned fruit. Slightly heavy finish but excellent flavor persistence, with the fruit turning toward chocolate. Comes into its own in milk, where it is balanced and roundly rich, with deep semi-sweet chocolate character.

Notes: Joe Wells started his small-batch roasting business in a gas station because no one else in his part of the Florida Keys sold fresh-roasted coffee. His growing but still home-grown business carries the motto "Born Out of Necessity ... Crafted with Passion." Visit www.islandjoescoffee.com or call 305-294-1190 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A cappuccino shot for the road.
