Blind Assessment: The rest of the taste profile plays peek-a-boo around dominating carbon tones in this very dark roasted coffee. Nevertheless, the pungent sweetness that constitutes the upside of darker roasts prevails, particularly in the cup.

Notes: The rest of the taste profile plays peek-a-boo around dominating carbon tones in this very dark roasted coffee.

Who Should Drink It: Everyone who's gotten hooked on the carbon-overlaying-bittersweetness of the Starbucks taste. Aside from Peet's, which is probably more so, the quintessential coffee for the West-Coast French-press experience: gritty, pungent, and stands up against almost anything you put in it. Unless things have changed recently, do not serve this coffee drip-brewed at a PTA buffet in New England.
