Batdorf & Bronson
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||East Java, Indonesia.|
|Review Date:||April 2007|
Blind Assessment: A strikingly distinctive coffee that suffers a bit in the finish. Splendid aroma: sweetly and deeply pungent, with floral, chocolate and pipe tobacco notes. In the cup low-toned but vibrant acidity, crisply nut-like with distinct orange notes. The nut notes turn very slightly stiff and dusty in the finish.
Notes: Most Java coffees are produced, like this one, on large government-operated estates in the mountains of East Java. These farms are old and quite traditional in their procedures and operation. Batdorf & Bronson is a leading wholesale quality-oriented specialty roaster with roasting locations in both Olympia, Washington and Atlanta, Georgia.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy things that are exotic but balanced.
