Roast: Dark Review Date: October 1997
Origin: Various Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Another dark-roast blend in which the sweet-chocolate-vanilla complex barely makes it out from under the carbon. But it does, and a muted vanilla sweetness lifts the profile in the finish. Milk, as usual, smooths the carbon and glorifies the sweetness.

Notes: A dark-roast blend where the sweet-chocolate-vanilla complex peeks out from under the carbon. PJ's is a specialty roaster and retail coffee chain based in New Orleans.

Who Should Drink It: I'm running out of psychological metaphors for people who like austere, carbony Espressos. Like the Peet's blend, this coffee keeps the carbon but avoids the thinness that often accompanies it. A bit sweeter than the Peet's.

WITH MILK:Flavor in milk: 6

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.
