|Roaster Location:||Anoka, Minnesota|
|Coffee Origin:||Southern India|
|Review Date:||July 2004|
Blind Assessment: Very sweet aroma with fresh peach and chocolate mid tones and balancing cedar bottom notes. Delicate in the cup with a gently tart acidity wrapped in a rather giddy sweetness. The fruit notes are cleanly wine-like.
Notes: Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold is the highest grade of Indian wet-processed Arabica coffee, based on very large bean size and virtual absence of visual defects. Mysore is a traditional market name for coffee from south-central India, Extra Bold refers to the very large bean size, and Nuggets, I take it, has something to do with preciousness, as in nuggets of gold. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of delicate white table wines.
