|Roaster Location:||Portland, Oregon|
|Review Date:||February 1997|
Blind Assessment: An intense coffee, particularly in the nose, but without grace notes or much resonance. Carbon tones dominate, but allow some sweetness and pungency to balance the cup.
Notes: Intense coffee where carbon tones dominate with some sweetness and pungency for balance.
Who Should Drink It: People who like everything up front and immediate, even in their coffee. This is a coffee with some West-Coast, dark-roast character that, brewed strong, should please without distracting.
