Allegro Coffee Roasters
|Roaster Location:||Boulder, Colorado|
|Review Date:||December 1997|
Blind Assessment: No carbon and lots of sweetness here, smoothing and rounding the dark-roast pungency. A pleasing smokiness turns sweet and ambiguously chocolate in the aftertaste.
Notes: Sweet and not burnt. For every pound sold of this coffee, Allegro donates 25 cents to fund fresh water projects in Kenyan coffee growing areas, making this quite literally a gift coffee.
Who Should Drink It : The holiday factor:Another after-dinner comfort coffee, full of reassuring sweet notes and cushioned corners. A good choice for the family chocolate-lover.
