Pannikin Coffee & Tea
Best of Africa Blend
|San Diego, California
Strikingly sweet, with virtually no dark-roast bitterness. The sweetness is agreeably complicated by tart berryish or citrusy tones, but overall the profile seems a bit restrained, a touch limited in range and dimension.
Strikingly sweet, with virtually no dark-roast bitterness. Over the years this has been one of my favorite dark-roast blends. It remains impressive this time around, though perhaps less authoritative than in cuppings past.
Who Should Drink It
Admirers of sweetness without sentiment.
