Barnie's Coffee & Tea
|Roaster Location:||Orlando, Florida|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||May 1999|
Blind Assessment: Lovely Yirgacheffe character: Floral, intense, transporting, as astonishing at first sip as the sudden scent of jasmine at dusk. What makes this particular Yirgacheffe an especially fine example of the origin is a touch of richness and power supporting the always remarkable perfumes.
Notes: A very flower-laced Yirgacheffe, with light body. Yirgacheffe is celebrated for its sweet floral perfumes and delicate body. Barnie's Coffee & Tea is a many-stored retailer founded in 1980.
Who Should Drink It: Those who admire both elegance and exuberance.
