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

Blind Assessment: Powered by the earthy, slightly musty, forest-floor notes of (I assume) Sulawesi or Sumatra coffees, with an added touch of acidy brightness and sweetness. The earthy notes hint pleasantly at chocolate. Marred by a slight metallic note as the cup cools.

Notes: Powered by the earthy, slightly musty, forest-floor notes of Sulawesi or Sumatra coffees, with an added touch of acidy brightness and sweetness. Founded in 1978 by specialty coffee pioneer Phyllis Jordan, PJ 's now roasts specialty coffees for a chain of PJ 's cafes throughout the South.

Who Should Drink It: Chocolate-eating gardeners? It goes against our cultural categories to associate the smell of fresh, moist earth with the taste of chocolate, but they most definitely converge, pleasingly, in exotic blends like this one.

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.
