Blind Assessment: Impressive aroma: Sweetly pungent and grapefruity with cedar, nut and dark chocolate complications. The aromatics remain pleasing and complex in the cup, though they lose intensity. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Aromatics fade further in a sweet-toned but empty finish.
Notes: Purchased pre-ground in a sealed 12-ounce foil-laminated bag with one-way valve at a Safeway supermarket in northern California; 67 cents per dry ounce. Composed of 100% Arabica coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A nicely balanced darker roasted cup at a value price.
