|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Est. Price:||$8.49/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||February 2016|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly and gently pungent, quietly complex. Dark chocolate, cedar, hazelnut, plum in aroma and cup. Round, backgrounded but softly resonant acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Hints of dark chocolate, cedar and plum all linger faintly but persistently in a sweet-toned finish.
Notes: Purchased pre-ground in a 12-ounce foil bag with one-way degassing valve at a Safeway supermarket in northern California. McCafé is a brand of McDonald’s. Visit www.mcdonalds.com/us/en/promotions/mccafe_at_home.html for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Those looking for quiet but surprising intrigue at a value price in a supermarket Colombia.
