The Supreme Bean
Espresso del Norte
|Roaster Location:||North Hollywood, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Review Date:||June 2004|
Blind Assessment: Big but elegantly leathery aroma laced with chocolate. In the small cup a dry sharpness limits the chocolate tones, but they reassert themselves in milk, blossoming richly with a long, hazelnut-toned finish.
Notes: One of three espresso blends offered by The Supreme Bean, a Los Angeles-area wholesale roaster specializing in high-end roasted-to-order espresso blends and single origins. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of the authentic cappuccino.
