Coffee Roasters of Pasadena
Gamble House Blend
|Roaster Location:||Pasadena, California|
|Review Date:||June 2001|
Blind Assessment: A pleasingly balanced American cup. Nut and vanilla tones shimmer in the nose and a comfortable sweetness predominates in the cup, lifted by a discreet acidity. Bitter undertones confer authority to the cup but tend to dominate in the rather flat aftertaste.
Notes: A pleasingly balanced American cup. Nut and vanilla tones shimmer in the nose and a comfortable sweetness predominates in the cup. The blend name is Coffee Roasters of Pasadena 's tribute to the Gamble House, the best-known of the elegant craftsman-style bungalows designed by the Pasadena architects Charles and Henry Greene in the first decade of the 20th century.
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a classic but low-key American breakfast coffee with pleasantly understated acidity.
