Est. Price:

Review Date: June 2005

Agtron: 30/41

Aroma: 7

Body: 7

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.

Notes:

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.
