  • Black Phantom Decaf Espresso

Roast: Dark Review Date: March 2007
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Deeply rich aroma with fruity chocolate and cedar complication. In the small cup the cedar notes dominate, backgrounding the chocolate and fruit. Full body but slightly rough mouthfeel; rich and slightly sharp in the short finish, but in the long smoothes out nicely with a final memory of chocolate. The cedar and chocolate carry into milk, the cedar dominating but the chocolate-fruit side blooming nicely.

Notes: Atomic Caf? is a coffee house on the North Shore of Massachusetts that began its in-house roasting program in 2005. Visit or call 978-922-0042 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A roughly robust espresso for those who value bluntness.


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.
