Espresso Flores Milan by Alaska Coffee Roasting Company Review |
  • Alaska Coffee Roasting Company

    Fairbanks, Alaska
  • Espresso Flores Milan

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

Blind Assessment: Smoke and toast in the aroma, with a hint of flowers. In the small cup medium-bodied and smooth in mouthfeel, balanced, rich, simple, with hints of cedar, dark chocolate and toast. Sweet finish. In milk lean-bodied but lush, dominated by a smoky semi-sweet chocolate.

Notes: One of several espresso blends from Alaska Coffee Roasting, whose location in the mid-Alaskan town of Fairbanks must make it one of America's northernmost coffee roasters. Before founding Alaska Roasting, roast master and buyer Michael Gesser lived for ten years in Kenya and brings a longtime traveler's curiosity and passion to sourcing his coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of smoky complexity.


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.
