Jeremiah's Pick Coffee
Chocatal: Cocoa Nibs and Organic Coffee
|Roaster Location:||San Francisco, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||September 2006|
Blind Assessment: (Pre-ground blend of coffee and cocoa nibs) Sweet-toned aroma dominated by what reads as nut (walnut?) notes with suggestions of chocolate and dried fruit, perhaps raisin. In the cup round and full in mouthfeel and gently acidy but limited in aromatic range, with a continued dominant nut character and sweet chocolate undercurrents that fade in the slightly tight finish.
Notes: The coffee in this blend is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Cocoa nibs are the dried and roasted seeds of the cacao fruit from which chocolate is ultimately produced. Jeremiah's Pick also produces a version of this blend using conventionally grown coffee. Jeremiah's Pick is an innovative, quality-oriented wholesale specialty roaster. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Chaste chocolate lovers.
