PJ's Coffee & Tea
|Roaster Location:||New Orleans, Louisiana|
|Review Date:||October 1997|
|With Milk:||Flavor in milk: 6|
Another dark-roast blend in which the sweet-chocolate-vanilla complex barely makes it out from under the carbon. But it does, and a muted vanilla sweetness lifts the profile in the finish. Milk, as usual, smooths the carbon and glorifies the sweetness.
A dark-roast blend where the sweet-chocolate-vanilla complex peeks out from under the carbon. PJ's is a specialty roaster and retail coffee chain based in New Orleans.
Who Should Drink It
I'm running out of psychological metaphors for people who like austere, carbony Espressos. Like the Peet's blend, this coffee keeps the carbon but avoids the thinness that often accompanies it. A bit sweeter than the Peet's.
