Chicago Blues Blend
|Roaster Location:||Bensenville, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||Not Disclosed|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||July 2005|
Blind Assessment: Sweet, quite smoky aroma, with floral top notes and suggestions of temperate fruit, pear perhaps. In the cup low-toned, smoky, sweet but salty, with chocolate undertones and continued hints of pear. The smoky tones carry into the finish.
Notes: This blend was packed and was evaluated in pre-ground format. It has an unusual cup character that can be plausibly taken as bluesy, or at least smoky. Superior Coffee is a large company offering a wide range of coffee products. It was founded in Chicago in 1908 and is now owned by food giant Sara Lee.
