Blind Assessment: Charred wood with a backgrounded dark chocolate sweetness dominates in aroma. The dark chocolate character intensifies in the cup, complicated by a hint of orangy fruit. Lean but smooth mouthfeel; sweetly smoky in the finish.
Notes: French roast is the common American term for ultimately dark-roasted coffees like this one. Tully's is a large quality-oriented specialty roasting company and cafe chain based in Seattle. Visit
Who Should Drink It: An ultra-dark roast that preserves some pleasing chocolate character amid the smoky embers. Low in acidity, both perceived and measured.
