Roast: NA Review Date: June 2001
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A breakfast blend with a good deal of character but little balance or coherence. The sweet front end with its pleasingly exotic edge of floral notes and ferment-toned fruit (Ethiopia Harrars?) is precariously supported by a smoky, pungent dark-roast bottom. Eventually, however, the roasty bitterness prevails in a rather severe finish.

Notes: A breakfast blend with a good deal of character but little balance or coherence. A sweet front end with exotic floral notes is overpowered by a roasty bitterness in the finish. A blend of a single coffee brought to two different roast styles, one lighter and one darker. Classic Coffees is a young (1994) hands-on wholesale roaster and equipment supplier serving North Carolina and nearby states. It specializes in custom, to-order

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer morning blends with dark-roast character and exclamation points. An emphatic blend probably best drunk softened with a dollop of milk.

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.
