Alaska Coffee Roasting Company
|Roaster Location:||Fairbanks, Alaska|
|Review Date:||September 1999|
A light, bright breath of acidity shimmers inside an amazing bouquet of sweet jasmine and darker, woodier fragrances. The cup soars in a delicious, reeling dizziness of flowers, then immediately relaxes into spicy shadows. Somehow, all of the range and complexity remains precariously, elegantly in balance.
Many outstanding Ethiopias are currently coming into the country. Perhaps that accounts for the five single-origin Ethiopia coffees in the cupping. They 're all fine, but this one is the finest.
Who Should Drink It
This splendid, versatile coffee should do as well for French press romance as it does for three cups on a bright, workaday morning. Or try it on the porch Saturday afternoon, iced with a little half-and-half.
