  • Espresso Blend, So. Italian

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: October 1997
Origin: Various Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The aromatics of the vanilla-chocolate complex fade fast under the impact of the carbon, although the clean-sweat pungency will please lovers of extremely dark roasts. The blanketing astringency of the carbon reaches a climax in the aftertaste, but even there sweetness balances and pungency complicates.

Notes: An extremely dark roast which seems genuinely southern Italian, both delicious and operatically dark and quirky. This is the darkest-roasted of the Thanksgiving Espresso blends.

Who Should Drink It: There is something genuinely southern Italian about this blend (at least the southern Italy of myth and literature), something both delicious and operatically dark and quirky.

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.
