Colombian Organic Full City Roast
|Roaster Location:||Amherst, New Hampshire|
|Review Date:||February 2006|
Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, deeply roasty aroma, with cedar, chocolate, sweet orange and floral complication. Simplifies a bit in the cup, but displays a simple, powerful richness with muted, tight-knit complexity: chocolate, cedar, pruny dry plum. Cleanly rich in the finish.
Notes: Certified organically grown and shade-grown. Full City is a traditional description for a coffee brought to a style of roast that hovers just on the sweet cusp between medium and dark. The "A&E" in A&E Roastery references Adam and Emeran, respectively roastmaster and owner of this wholesale and retail microroaster specializing in organically grown coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who want a little roast with their fruit and chocolate.
