Jeremiah's Pick Gourmet Coffee
|San Francisco, California
As usual with most extreme dark-roasted blends sold under the name French roast, no real flavor survives, only competing sensations of bitter and sweet -- in this case inclined more toward the bitter. I preferred this particular "French roast" profile over several others owing to the invigorating intensity of the bittersweetness
Invigorating intensity of bitttersweet character, leaning toward the bitter. Jeremiah's Pick is a small, quality-oriented wholesale roaster whose coffees appear in upscale supermarkets in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Who Should Drink It
Lovers of nuance-obliterating cultural gestures: very hot food, super-garlicked sauces.
