|Review Date:||July 2021|
Blind Assessment: A ready-to-drink black coffee, tested cold. Dried apricot, baking chocolate, lemon verbena, marjoram, frankincense. Juicy, sweet-tart structure with lively acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The balanced finish is equal parts dark chocolate and dried apricot. Chocolate notes are further amplified in milk, as sweet marjoram and resiny frankincense notes.
Notes: The coffee tied for the highest rating in a tasting of ready-to-drink black coffees for Coffee Review’s July 2021 tasting report. Prepared by the cold-brew method, which involves prolonged steeping of ground coffee in cold water. Contains no additives or ingredients other than coffee and water. The green coffee used is a natural-processed Ethiopia Mormora. Roast House is a small-batch, quality-focused roaster specializing in farm-direct organic-certified and fair trade certified coffees.

The Bottom Line: A fruity, decadently tart, chocolaty and richly savory single-origin Ethiopia natural cold brew.
