Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: March 2002
Origin: Not Disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A rather striking dark-roast coffee in its disconnected extremes of abandoned sweetness and charred bitterness. The only relief from this (to some exhilarating) contradiction are dry cocoa notes in the finish.

Notes: Sold whole-bean in bulk; 50 cents per ounce. This coffee was nominated by a reader from New Orleans, who found it one of "the two best cups I ever had." Call 1-800-522-7894 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: A take-no-prisoners style of dark roast that lovers of extreme culinary gestures may enjoy.


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.
