  • The Elves_ Imperial Breakfast Blend

Roast: NA Review Date: November 1999
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Dry acidy tones combine nicely with a restrained roasty pungency. Good, deep dimension, but little sweetness to support the deeply tart fruit notes.

Notes: Good, deep dimension, but little sweetness to support the deeply tart fruit notes. Great for elves with a taste for dry, pungent, dark-roasted coffee. IntelligentsiA is a two-store retailer/roaster that has brought a well-modulated version of the West-Coast dark-roasting style to Chicago.

Who Should Drink It: Presumably, elves with a taste for dry, pungent, tartly fruity coffee. But if all the elves are north for the holidays buy it for black-coffee drinkers who think sweet is sissy. Or supply the sweetness yourself: This is a coffee that should stand up to major amounts of milk and sugar.

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.
