Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: June 1999
Origin: Various Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A fresh citrusy sharpness complicates the dark-roast bittersweetness. The bitter tones intensify in finish, but never completely master the sweetness, which persists pleasantly through aftertaste.

Notes: Dark-roast bittersweetness with a fresh citrusy sharpness. Not Starbucks' darkest roast. The darkest is the French Roast, which tasted like everyone else's French Roast.

Who Should Drink It: Bittersweet syndrome fans lost in the suburbs or strange cities.

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.
