Richly bittersweet. Caramel, Brazil nut, cedar, blood orange, honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Round, low-toned acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Brazil nut and blood orange carry into a drying finish.
Blue Bottle Coffee started as the quintessential boutique coffee business: a micro-roasting operation in Oakland housed inside a space about as large as a suburban walk-in closet and a single retail location in San Francisco. In the years since its founding Blue Bottle has attracted a strong following in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, and now operates four roasting locations in Oakland, California; Brooklyn, New York; Los Angeles, California; and Tokyo, Japan.

Rich, deep, pungent, with suggestions of blood orange.
