|Roaster Location:||Procter & Gamble, Cincinnati, Ohio|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||March 2002|
Blind Assessment: Dominated by sweet grainy nut tones overlaid with a sour, musty ferment. I can think of no analogy for this odd combination of sensations because human beings normally don't consume products that are both fermented and mildewed-tasting.
Notes: Sold roast and ground in a 13-ounce valve bag; 28 cents per ounce.Call 1-800-937-9745 for more info.
Who Should Drink It: Another study in the impact of cheap Vietnamese mass-processed robusta coffees on the common American cup. (See The Robusta Fuss.)
