|Roaster Location:||San Leandro, California|
|Review Date:||March 2001|
Blind Assessment: A superb Sulawesi: rich, big-bodied but smooth, with a shimmer of acidity animating its heart. Elegant balance of bitter and sweet tones, fine range from middle to bottom of the profile, a hint of flowers, and deep, dry plum-wine fruitiness.
Notes: Sunrise Coffee is a small wholesale roasting company located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Milton Coreas, owner and roastmaster, was born in El Salvador. As a youth he picked coffee on one of the same farms he now buys from.
Who Should Drink It: Luxurious, fruity and balanced, a candidate for lovers of port wines and brandies.
