Blind Assessment:

Mid-toned but rich, deep aroma, with fresh leather, pear, peach and milk chocolate suggestions. Simplifies a bit in the cup, undercurrents of pipe tobacco and a tartly refreshing, sweet fruit, pie cherries perhaps or kiwi.


No decaffeination method is noted on the package, which probably means this coffee was decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to “air roasting,” a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: A fine, bright breakfast coffee for those bright-eyed types who wake up naturally.
