|Review Date:||April 2022|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly smoky, crisply chocolaty. Scorched cedar, baking chocolate, lemon-thyme, candy apple, lily in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with velvety mouthfeel; the crisp, chocolaty finish is supported by notes of lemon-thyme and lily.
Notes: Desert Sun’s roastery is located at nearly 7,000 feet above sea level in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It imports its coffee through its membership in Coop Coffees, a cooperative importer. Visit www.desertsuncoffee.com or call 866-998-6299 for more information.
The Bottom Line: Unabashedly smoky with chocolaty depth, this Peru/Honduras/Mexico blend offers comfortingly classic dark-roast aromas and flavors.
