Low-key, bittersweet and roasty in the aroma with suggestions of apple and charred cedar. In the cup sweet floral top notes float almost irrelevantly over the rather densely monotoned, pungently dark-roast heart. The cup softens and sweetens as it cools, however, allowing the floral notes to bloom in pleasant counterpoint to the pungency.
This darker-roasted blend of East Africa coffees is one of the current "Roastmaster's Recommendations" featured on the O'Henry's Coffees Internet site. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Those lovers of dark roasts who enjoy a compensating arabesque of floral sweetness.
