Johann Wulff’s Stomach Friendly Dark Roast
|Roaster Location:||Little Rock, Arkansas|
|Coffee Origin:||Not Disclosed|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||May 2005|
Blind Assessment: Intense, cleanly bittersweet ultra-dark roast with complex, attractive fruit notes: cherry, pear and pipe tobacco in the aroma, with the cherry-toned pipe tobacco turning toward semi-sweet chocolate in the cup. Sweet and rich in the short finish, but rather heavily astringent in the long.
Notes: Health angle: Acidity lowered through treatment of the green beans before roasting. This coffee sells under a somewhat confusing array of names and slogans, including Johann Wulff's Considerate Coffee, Stomach Friendly Coffee, and Gentle Java Coffees. Whatever they are called, they are available retail and wholesale. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Acidity-avoiding devotees of ultra-dark "French" roast blends who value fruit and complexity.
