Hevla Coffee Company
Gourmet Low Acid Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Endicott, New York|
|Coffee Origin:||Not Disclosed|
|Review Date:||May 2005|
Blind Assessment: Richly balanced aroma with hints of chocolate- and sweet-spice-toned fruit. In the cup sweet, delicate, refreshingly light-bodied with some almost giddily high-toned fruit and floral notes, but betrayed by an undercurrent of cardboardy flatness. Whatever caused the cardboardy or woody sensation seems to dominate in the thin, flat finish.
Notes: Health angle: Acidity lowered through treatment of the green beans before roasting. Hevla Coffee is a wholesaler of roasted acid-reduced coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Aside from the thin finish, an appealing summertime coffee, with its refreshing sweetness, fruit, delicate body and absence of astringency.
