|Est. Price:||$11.99/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||February 2016|
Delicately and richly sweet. Orange marmalade, tea rose, fresh-cut fir, cashew in aroma and cup. Round, bittersweet acidity; full, lightly velvety mouthfeel. Fir and plum predominate in the quietly sweet, slightly drying finish.
Purchased as whole bean in a 12-ounce foil bag with one-way degassing valve at a Safeway supermarket in northern California. This sample was roasted and packaged at Mr. Espresso’s Oakland, California facility. Mr. Espresso is a San Francisco Bay Area wholesale roaster and espresso parts distributer that slow-roasts its coffees using traditional wood-fired roasting machines.
