Stone Cup Roasting
|Roaster Location:||Chattanooga, Tennessee|
|Coffee Origin:||El Salvador|
|Review Date:||July 2003|
Blind Assessment: Low-toned, sweet, gently acidy. Fresh leather and milk chocolate in the aroma. The sweet chocolate persists in the cup with an undercurrent of fruit that suggests a spicy dark cherry. Excellent dimension when hot, though the profile simplifies a bit as the cup cools.
Notes: Stone Cup Roasting is a boutique roasting company in the reviving and attractive city of Chattanooga that features El Salvador coffee both in blends and as a single-origin offering. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Chocolate lovers with subtle palates.
