Fifth Anniversary Blend
|Roaster Location:||Kansas City, Missouri|
|Review Date:||May 1999|
Blind Assessment: A blend that in its completeness is a tribute to the blender's art. Solid without drama, displaying excellent range and a fine balance between sweetness and (I would guess) Indonesia pungency. Mouth-filling, close to creamy body, cleanly resounding aftertaste.
Notes: A blend that in its completeness is a tribute to the blender's art. Mouth-filling, close to creamy body, cleanly resounding aftertaste. The Roasterie is a youthful wholesale roaster with irreverent iconography that is celebrating its founding in 1993 with this special blend.
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of a full, low-toned cup with an edge of pungency.
