Java Estate by Batdorf & Bronson Review | CoffeeReview.com

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 1999
Origin: Java Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Not a trace of the twisty pungency of most Sumatras and Sulawesis here. Instead a nut-softening-to-vanilla nose, a clear, assertive floral-toned acidity, even a hint of smoke in the finish. With just a little more dimension and sweetness this coffee would be a knockout.

Notes: A sexy variation on the classic profiles of Latin America. A nut-softening-to-vanilla nose, a clear, assertive floral-toned acidity, with a hint of smoke in the finish. Java coffees are processed by the classic, large-scale washed method, typically producing a cleaner, brighter cup than the more idiosyncratic traditionally processed coffees of Sumatra and Sulawesi.

Who Should Drink It: A sexy variation on the classic washed profiles of Latin America. Try it medium-strength, filter-drip, black or almost.

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.
