Blind Assessment: Floral notes float shimmering atop the rather sharp, bitter, burned tones of the roast. Not much sweetness, but the subtle perfume of the flowers compensates.

Notes: Floral notes float shimmering atop the rather sharp, bitter, burned tones of the roast. French Roast is a common name for coffee blends that have been brought to the extreme dark end of the roast spectrum. Alpen Sierra is a quality-oriented small-batch roaster founded in 1991.

Who Should Drink It: Morose flower lovers? Just kidding. The floral tones may make this blend a pleasant change of pace for lovers of extreme darks roasts.
