|Review Date:||March 2005|
Blind Assessment: A pleasant but rather predictable American-style espresso blend. Subdued chocolate and fruit in the aroma, medium body with a somewhat lean mouthfeel, smoky and pungently cedar-toned flavor with a little shimmer of dry cocoa. Softens and sweetens in milk to a cedarish chocolate with a hint of fresh leather.
Notes: All coffees composing this blend are certified organically grown and certified Fair Trade, meaning they were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Kaldi's Best is a small wholesale and retail roaster specializing in sustainable - certified organic, Fair Trade - coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those with progressive sympathies in politics and mainstream tastes in espressos.
