Jamaica Blue Mtn:Old Tavern #1
|Roaster Location:||Northborough, Massachusetts|
|Review Date:||May 1999|
Close to the great Blue Mountains of the past: balanced, round, very rich, almost bouillon-like, with a slight, spicy effervescence tickling at the heart of the cup. Regrettably, a faint, almost undetectable hardness or storage-related fading shadows the otherwise superb cup.
Alex Twyman's 100% certified Jamaica Blue Mountain single-estate coffee.. The aroma is intense, nicely balanced between sweet and dry notes. Rich and arresting acidity dominates the first impression, supported by pungent mid-tones. From the 1998/99 crop.
Who Should Drink It
Name-droppers who want a coffee that comes very close to living up to its famous name.
