Blind Assessment: Sweetly smoky, fruity aroma. In the cup light to medium body with a silky mouthfeel and quiet balance between a gentle acidity and a discreetly roast (cedar and toast) character. A hint of dark chocolate in the cup and butterscotch in the simple but rich finish.
Notes: Willoughby's Coffee & Tea is a pioneer specialty coffee roaster recently reinvigorated and refocused on artisan roasting and an extensive collection of elite single-origin coffees. Visit www.willoughbyscoffee.com or call 800-388-8400 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Perhaps contentious families at Thanksgiving dinner: a quiet, versatile coffee that doesn't take sides.
