Blind Assessment: Massively roasty in the aroma: sweetly pungent with a sort of lush bar-b-qued apricot-toned fruit. Less impressive in the cup, where the main impression is simply the roast, heavy and burned but not rubbery. Given the weighty intensity of the roast sensation, surprisingly sweet and rich in the finish, with only a slight astringency.
Notes: Zeitgeist is a Seattle coffee shop emphasizing its commitment to innovative art. Bucking the irreverent, youthful style of most Seattle coffee sellers, Zeitgeist's handsome foil bag and graphics project a wine-world (or art magazine) understatement. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Dark-roast drinkers who like their cup big, blunt, and richly burned.
