Blind Assessment:

Pungent and smoky throughout the profile, with some suggestions of semi-sweet chocolate, cedar and rosemary. In the cup the mouthfeel is lightly and pleasantly astringent, bracing rather than bitter or heavy.


No decaffeination method is noted on the package, which probably means this coffee was decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. Orleans Coffee Exchange is a quality-oriented wholesale roaster that bills itself “New Orleans Premier Micro-Roaster Since 1983.” Visit www.coffeeexchange.com or call 800-737-5464 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy dark roasts but avoid bitterness.
