Roast: NA Review Date: February 1999
Origin: Sumatra Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The roast dominates the coffee here, overlaying the mouth-filling Sumatra richness with distinct carbon tones. The result is a dry, pungently full profile, powerful but a bit to astringent for my taste.

Notes: The roast dominates the coffee here, overlaying Sumatra richness with distinct carbon tones for a pungently full profile, powerful, but a bit too astringent. The Coffee Roaster was established in the mid-1980s, making it one of the original artisan roasters in the Los Angeles area.

Who Should Drink It: Brewed double-strength filter-drip or French-press this coffee should please those who like to add sweetener and/or dairy to mellow a sharp but full cup.

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.
