Caffe Luna by Caffe Vita Coffee Roasting Review |
  • Caffe Vita Coffee Roasting

    Seattle, Washington
  • Caffe Luna

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

Blind Assessment: Roasty and sweetly and gently charred, with a hint of fermented fruit that under the influence of the roast suggests a spicily aromatic chocolate - imagine bittersweet chocolate stored in charred cedar. Rich finish with a tingle of astringency.

Notes: Chef-owner William Belickis' American/new French cuisine at his Mistral restaurant has attracted survey-topping reviews in Zagat's restaurant guides. Mistral serves this roastily robust coffee in press pots. Caffe Vita is a locally celebrated Seattle small-batch roaster specializing in espresso preparation and equipment.

Who Should Drink It: An interesting and agreeable variant on the theme of ultra-dark roast that nicely pushes the expressive envelope of the style.


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.
