|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||January 2007|
Blind Assessment: A very interesting profile, shallow in depth of sensation but intensely complex within that narrow range. Crisply roasty but lively aroma with sweet apple and floral-toned chocolate notes. Continued roasty in the cup with distinct, sweetly lemony fruit and continued hints of flowers and chocolate.
Notes: Purchased pre-ground in a sealed 12-ounce foil-laminated bag with one-way valve at a Safeway supermarket in northern California; 92 cents per dry ounce. Visit
Who Should Drink It : A dramatic departure from the standard Latin-American profile for supermarket shoppers.
