Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-tart, sweetly herbaceous. Baking chocolate, tangerine, sage, peach, pipe tobacco in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet-tart structure with brisk acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The earthy-sweet finish leads with pipe tobacco and sage.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Colombia, Guatemala (both washed process) and Indonesia (a washed and wet-hulled Sumatra). Theory Coffee Roasters is a specialty roaster and coffee shop based in Redding, California. Visit www.theorycoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A resonant, confident, sweetly earthy Sumatra-based blend roasted to the very beginning of the “second crack,” where the influence of dark-roast character first makes itself felt.
