Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The aroma is roasty and quite sweet, with high-toned cedar and chocolate notes. Round and full in the cup, with a buttery mouthfeel and a balance of gentle roast tones and a tickle of sweet, fruit-toned acidity.

Notes: Served at 40 Sardines, a recently opened Kansas City bistro-style effort by James-Beard-recognized chefs Debbie Gold and Michael Smith. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster 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.
