Blind Assessment: This coffee opens opulently, with a complex, enveloping aroma alive with nutty, spicy, bittersweet tones. In the cup the profile is smoky sweet, discreetly brightened by a touch of acidity. As the cup cools, however, the sweetness fades and the smokiness reveals hard, musty undertones. My rating faded too, from a high of 87 to a final landing at 81.

Notes: This coffee opens opulently, with a complex, enveloping aroma alive with nutty, spicy, bittersweet tones. As the cup cools, however, the sweetness fades and the smokiness reveals hard, musty undertones. A fine, classic dark Indonesia blend betrayed by a slight hard ferment in one of the coffees, probably the Sulawesi. Anthony 's is a roaster on the Hana Highway on Maui 's north coast.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of complex, duskily ambiguous darker-roasted Indonesia coffees.
