Fidalgo Bay Coffee
Decaf Roastmaster’s Choice Espresso
|Roaster Location:||Burlington, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Central America and Africa|
|Review Date:||March 2007|
A fine fruity-fermented style espresso in decaffeinated format. The sweet fermented fruit notes (I would guess from a dried-in-the-fruit East African green coffee component) read as blueberry with chocolate and ripe banana tones in both aroma and small cup. Excellent body, rich chocolate in the finish. A slight salty sensation that often accompanies fruity ferment hardly matters in the small cup, but seems to dampen sweetness in milk, where this exciting espresso doesn?t quite live up to its full chocolate-blueberry promise.

Who Should Drink It
As a straight shot definitely exotic and distinctive, and well worth trying in milk.
