Millstone Coffee Company
|Roaster Location:||Cincinnati, Ohio|
|Review Date:||May 1997|
Blind Assessment: Herbal tones in the aroma turn spicy and fruity in the cup. The fruit nuances in the acidity lift the top of the profile and keep it light and shimmering all the way through to finish and aftertaste. Enough bottom for resonance.
Notes: A subtle, complete coffee in the classic breakfast mode with fruit nuances in the acidity and enough bottom for resonance. A blend. Whole-bean bulk coffee sold through supermarkets. $8.59 per pound.
Who Should Drink It: Anyone who doubts that, at least in the world of coffee, a bit more money buys a lot more pleasure. By far the best coffee in the cupping as well as the most expensive. A subtle, complete coffee in the classic light-toned morning mode.
