Origin: Various Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: About half the cups of this low-toned but forceful blend hint at the taste defect called bagginess, a flat, ropey taste green coffee acquires when it has not been fully cured before shipping or stored properly. The cups free of defect display a subdued intensity powered by a spicy, edge-of-astringent pungency.

Notes: Not rated due to a taste defect called bagginess, a flat, ropey taste. The cups free of defect displayed a subdued intensity powered by a spicy, edge-of-astringent pungency. Elm City Roasters is a boutique roaster emphasizing small-batch roasting and freshness. The House Blend is Elm City's most popular retail coffee. NR - Not rated due to flaws in some of the cups sampled.

Who Should Drink It: The best-seller factor:I doubt whether Elm City's customers enjoy bagginess, so I assume the defective cups are a bit of an anomaly, and the low-key intensity is the attraction here.

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.
