Counter Culture Coffee
Hominy Grill Blend
|Roaster Location:||Durham, North Carolina|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Review Date:||February 2009|
Blind Assessment: Remarkable aromatic balance and big, suavely sweet acidity make this a remarkable blend despite its relatively light body and short finish. Dark chocolate, aromatic wood, tart, cherryish fruit carry from aroma through cup with poised authority.
Notes: Available in a 12-ounce valve bag at $10.95. A custom blend created for Chef Robert Stehling's Hominy Grill, a restaurant specializing in traditional Southern cuisine in Charleston, South Carolina. Counter Culture Coffee is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to exceptional coffee and youthful, enthusiastic leadership. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Unusual combination of acidy energy with expansive chocolate and aromatic wood notes.
