Montana Coffee Traders
|Roaster Location:||Whitefish, Montana|
|Review Date:||March 2001|
A fine sweet, roasty nose with hints of spice and leather. In the cup the spice and animal notes deepen toward earth and mustiness. The relatively light roast allows a touch of acidity to brighten the cup, but fails to develop the underlying sweetness.
"How you bean, man!" asks the deliberately funky cowboy graphic on the bag for Montana Coffee Traders, a 20-year-old wholesale roasting company with affiliated companies in Texas, Costa Rica and - honestly - Moscow, Russia.
Who Should Drink It
A shimmer of acidy brightness may make this coffee an attractive exotic alternative for members of the old multiple-black-cup school of American coffee drinking.
