Gamut Espresso (reviewed for drip applications)
|Roaster Location:||San Jose, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Brazil; Ethiopia; El Salvador.|
|Est. Price:||$16.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||February 2014|
Blind Assessment: Sweet, round, complexly and delicately chocolaty. Milk chocolate, honey, floral-toned vanilla, almond in aroma and cup. Soft, backgrounded acidity; very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but persists in a long, resonant finish.
Notes: Gamut is Chromatic Coffee’s flagship espresso. It is reviewed here for brewed or non-espresso applications, however. Chromatic prides itself in doing everything in-house and meticulously, from printing its attractive bags to modifying equipment to sourcing and roasting its fine coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Those many coffee drinkers who enjoy a round, gently complex, sweetly chocolaty cup.
