  • Super Tuscan Espresso

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2006
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Superbly and naturally sweet espresso. Complex in the aroma: caramel, milk chocolate, hints of nuts, flowers, pear-toned fruit. In the small cup medium-bodied but very smooth, gently pungent, with semi-sweet chocolate and a hint of smoke. Very sweet finish, long and cleanly rich. Fills out milk nicely with plump semi-sweet chocolate and a continued slight smoky, pungent edge.

Notes: The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that specializes in building ongoing relationships with growers and that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer inherently sweet to sugar sweet.
