|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||June 1999|
A fresh citrusy sharpness complicates the dark-roast bittersweetness. The bitter tones intensify in finish, but never completely master the sweetness, which persists pleasantly through aftertaste.
Dark-roast bittersweetness with a fresh citrusy sharpness. Not Starbucks' darkest roast. The darkest is the French Roast, which tasted like everyone else's French Roast.
Who Should Drink It
Bittersweet syndrome fans lost in the suburbs or strange cities.
