Blind Assessment: A ready-to-drink black coffee, tested cold. Deeply sweet, caramel-toned. Dark caramel, vanilla bean, date, magnolia, fresh-cut oak. Richly sweet in structure with lively acidity; lightly velvety mouthfeel. Consolidates to dark caramel and vanilla bean in the finish. Milk gives this cold coffee a dessert-like quality.
Notes: This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a tasting of ready-to-drink black coffees for Coffee Review’s July 2020 tasting report. Certified organic. Prepared by the cold-brew method, which involves prolonged steeping of ground coffee in cold or room-temperature water and subsequent filtering. Contains no additives or ingredients other than coffee and water. The green coffee used to produce this particular Stumptown product is a single-origin Ethiopia Guji. Stumptown Coffee is a small-batch premium roasting company that wholesales its coffees as well as serves them in its cafes in five U.S. cities, including its latest expansion to New Orleans.

The Bottom Line: Deep, rich, as sweet as can be, developed in the roast to bring out caramel notes while retaining fruit and floral tones.
