Pungent, chocolate notes enliven the aroma, but in the cup burned tones dominate. The body is decent, but in the aftertaste the carbon prevails completely.

Who Should Drink It
People who fondly remember the Normandy-style coffee they enjoyed one fall afternoon on the way from Paris to Mont-Saint-Michel. Which is a romantic way of saying that I suspect that this Ethiopian coffee is too delicate to maintain its character in a roast this dark and severe. But who am I to say: The last time I visited Chez Panisse they served a coffee that makes this one taste underroasted.
