Mt. Hood Blend by Hood River Coffee Review |
  • Hood River Coffee

    Hood River, Oregon
  • Mt. Hood Blend

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: $6.25/8oz

Blind Assessment: In the aroma explosively sweet and exquisitely balanced, with chocolate and a gently gingery spice. In the cup complex and wide in range: roasty, pungent, with a tickle of lemony sweet acidity and a hint of musty earth. An underlying astringent heaviness weighs slightly on the finish.

Notes: Hood River Coffee is a premium small-batch roaster located in the Colombia River Gorge. Visit or call 541-386-3908 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: The hints of Ethiopia and Sumatra in this blend should please lovers of the exotic cup.
