Hair Raiser Coffee
Hair Raiser Blend
|Santa Barbara, California
Smoky, deep-toned aroma with a tightly-knit complexity: cedar, flowers, pineapple, vanilla, semi-sweet chocolate. Simplifies a bit in the cup, but remains richly and roundly bittersweet with an impressive smoky rather than burned character and a tickle of pineapply fruit. The sweet, expansive finish reveals a slight touch of astringency but the semi-sweet chocolate and fruit notes linger agreeably.
This coffee accomplishes what I would have thought impossible: It preserves a remarkable richness, sweetness, and complexity at an absolute dead-end darkness of roast. By way of comparison, this coffee is twice as darkly roasted as Starbucks' espresso blend, typically considered very dark-roasted. The result is an unusual, perhaps unique, flavor profile. Hair Raiser Coffee, a wholesale/retail roaster located in the lovely city of Santa Barbara, presents its signature super-dark-roasted blend with verve and attitude: "Seriously strong yet sensuously smooth."
