|Coffee Origin:||20% Kona; other blend components not disclosed.|
|Review Date:||April 2006|
A pungent, sweetly tart, tight-knit complexity - cedar, orange, semi-sweet chocolate - runs through the profile from aroma through the long, rich finish. Magisterial and consistent when hot; stiffens and simplifies just slightly as the cup cools.
Surf City Coffee is a small-batch, primarily wholesale roaster located in the lively community around the University of California at Santa Cruz. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Not particularly Kona-like, but a fine breakfast cup, richly acidy and complex.
