Blind Assessment: John Weaver: "Fast roast, singed beans. Nice flavor though. Quick roast means bright acidity. A little slower roast would benefit this coffee" (85) Ken: "Elegant balance of fruity chocolate and leathery roast tones. Some bitterness, but softens toward the finish" (88).
Notes: Capricorn Coffees, founded in 1963, is one of the San Francisco Bay Area's oldest specialty roasting companies. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A classic bittersweet "after dinner" coffee: The bitterish but attractive roastiness is nicely rounded by fruity chocolate.
