Stone Cup Roasting
Full Natural Espresso Blend
|Roaster Location:||Chattanooga, Tennessee|
|Coffee Origin:||Brazil, Ethiopia|
|Review Date:||May 2006|
Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, round, caramelly aroma with hints of flowers and pears or peach. In the small cup full-bodied with a dominating sweet, cedary pungency complicated by raisiny fruit and dark chocolate with a slight whiff of brandyish ferment. In milk balanced and rich, with continued semi-sweet chocolate, richly grapy ferment and even a surprising resurfacing of flowers.
Notes: This blend consists of all ?natural? or dry-processed coffees from Brazil and Ethiopia. Stone Cup Roasting is a boutique roasting company in the reviving and attractive city of Chattanooga. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer flannel to silk and tequila to vodka.
