Vesuvio Blend by Batdorf & Bronson Review | CoffeeReview.com
75
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 1997
Origin: Various Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: This remarkably light, self-effacing blend displays no acidity and no bitterness. Only the slightest carbon astringency surfaces in the aftertaste. Unfortunately, this tribute to subtlety doesn't display much power or complexity either -- only an evanescent caramel-chocolate sweetness, which loses its way almost completely in milk.

Notes: This remarkably light, self-effacing blend displays no acidity and no bitterness. One of two Batdorf & Bronson Espresso blends in the tasting, this one is recommended by the blender-roaster for straight Espresso.

Who Should Drink It: People who find silk too disturbing and cotton too rough. Espresso drinkers who make fine distinctions and delicate compromises.

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.
