Ken (rating 86) writes: "Sweet, round, with an agreeable balance of dry acidy notes and rich roastiness. Perhaps a bit shallow in range and dimension." Kevin (rating 85): "A dark roast that hits the 'sweet spot' of old-style Peet's/Starbucks roasting. Acidity in a supporting role but still present, luscious body and noteworthy complexity, all a testament to excellent green coffee and skillful roasting."
