Blind Assessment:

Deeply rich, with a roasty sweetness. Dark chocolate, gently singed cedar, persimmon, magnolia-like flowers, caramel in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure; full, satiny mouthfeel. The resonant finish centers around pleasantly smoky chocolate and sweet floral suggestions.

Notes:

Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. The monks emphasize an artisan approach to roasting and a commitment to quality. Visit www.mysticmonkcoffee.com or call 877-751-6377 for more information.

The Bottom Line: An engaging, richly sweet blend that will appeal to those who enjoy, for example, the crisp caramel tones of the crust on a creme brulee dessert.
