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).

Who Should Drink It
A classic bittersweet "after dinner" coffee: The bitterish but attractive roastiness is nicely rounded by fruity chocolate.
