Humboldt Bay Coffee
Decaf Good, Strong Blend
|Roaster Location:||Eureka, California|
|Review Date:||March 2000|
Blind Assessment: A rather sharp pungency dominates this dark-roast blend, looming over some rather cowed dry fruit tones. A spicy sweetness shimmers here and there, notably in aroma and aftertaste.
Notes: A rather sharp pungency dominates this dark-roast blend, looming over some rather cowed dry fruit tones. Decaffeinated by the European process using the solvent methylene chloride. Humboldt Bay Coffee is a small-batch, quality-oriented wholesale roaster established in 1992 on California 's North Coast.
Who Should Drink It: A wonderful blend name, appropriate to Eureka, a logging and fishing town whose austere setting and no-bull North Coast attitude may make a rough, dark-roast blend without much nuance like this one perfectly appropriate.
