Island Joe's Coffee
Colombian Breakfast Blend
|Roaster Location:||Key West, Florida|
|Review Date:||February 2008|
Very sweet-toned aroma: distinct cocoaish chocolate notes with hints of walnut and a black-cherry inclined fruit. In the cup the cocoa and walnut notes simplify and amplify, supported by a sweet, crisp acidity. Flavor fades rather quickly in the finish but the chocolate and walnut have the last word.
This coffee is a blend of dark and medium roasts of the same Colombia coffee. Joe Wells started his small-batch roasting business in a gas station because no one else in his part of the Florida Keys sold fresh-roasted coffee. Visit
Who Should Drink It
The dominant baker's chocolate and walnut notes make this a strong-presenced cup despite its delicacy, with enough grace to be enjoyed black and enough substance to handle whitener.
