The Coffee Beanery
|Roaster Location:||Flushing, Michigan|
|Review Date:||February 1997|
Blind Assessment: A light-medium-roasted blend with power: The aroma is intense and classically acidy. For a coffee so lightly roasted the body is full, and the acidity teases and shimmers before emerging clearly in the finish.
Notes: A light-medium-roasted blend with power: intense aroma, full body and shimmering acidity.
Who Should Drink It: People who remember how American coffee tasted before supermarket price wars and cheap robustas ruined it. People without pretensions but with good palates. People who are sophisticated but not afraid to smile at strangers. A good all around classic drip-style coffee; should be good both black and with something in it.
