|Review Date:||January 2003|
Blind Assessment: Reader Jim Beckham of Athens, Texas reports he drinks "about a pound a week ofthis espresso. I frequently try others, but I always come back to this great blend." I might comeback to it too. Dry fruit, chocolate and leather notes, fat body, smooth, round, completelywithout bitterness. In milk excellent authority: rich, developing from dry chocolate in small dairyto milk chocolate in large.
Notes: Coffee City is, in surprising fact, a town in Texas. Reviewed here is proprietor and roastmaster Ray ("Raymundo") Johnson's signature espresso blend. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who value natural sweetness and a rugged elegance in espresso.Needs no sugar, either in the small cup or with dairy.
