Blind Assessment: Not much nuance here, but a solid ultra-dark roast. John Weaver: "Good clean flavor with mellow body and a nice finish" (83). Ken: "Balanced dark roast. Bittersweet, medium body, smooth mouthfeel, though a touch astringent in the finish" (82).
Notes: Torreo is a quality oriented, mainly wholesale specialty roaster serving the larger Philadelphia area. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy the drama of a very dark roast without the typical affliction of charred thinness.
