Trotter's Blend by Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters Review |
  • Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters

    Chicago, Illinois
  • Trotter's Blend

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Balanced and roundly high-toned. Slightly roasty, gently acidy. Papaya and fresh leather notes in the aroma; papaya and dark chocolate in the cup. A tickle of astringency in the long finish.

Notes: Served at Charlie Trotter's in Chicago. The chef's innovative new American cuisine and Zagat-Survey-topping service have made his restaurant justifiably famous. Intelligentsia is a leading, award-winning Chicago-area roaster with a commitment to quality epitomized by the practice of printing roast dates on coffee packaging.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer the quiet table in the corner.


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.
