Stone Cup Roasting
Dutch Flowers Blend
|Roaster Location:||Chattanooga, Tennessee|
|Review Date:||December 2001|
Blind Assessment: When hot, rich and balanced, with gently bright grapefruit tones shimmering inside a crisp, invigorating roastiness. As the cup cools the citrus tones turn a bit sharp and the roastiness leans toward burned.
Notes: A blend of organically grown El Salvador and Panama Boquete. The intriguing blend name derives from roaster Martin Swinson's favorite Amsterdam café. Stone Cup Roasting is a boutique roasting company in the reviving and attractive city of Chattanooga.
Who Should Drink It: A breakfast coffee candidate bright enough for traditionalists but roasty enough for the dark-roast generation.
