|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||April 2004|
Roasty and sweetly and gently charred, with a hint of fermented fruit that under the influence of the roast suggests a spicily aromatic chocolate - imagine bittersweet chocolate stored in charred cedar. Rich finish with a tingle of astringency.
Chef-owner William Belickis' American/new French cuisine at his Mistral restaurant has attracted survey-topping reviews in Zagat's restaurant guides. Mistral serves this roastily robust coffee in press pots. Caffe Vita is a locally celebrated Seattle small-batch roaster specializing in espresso preparation and equipment.

Who Should Drink It
An interesting and agreeable variant on the theme of ultra-dark roast that nicely pushes the expressive envelope of the style.
