Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters
Kaffe Moose Drool
|Roaster Location:||Helena, Montana|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Review Date:||May 2004|
Blind Assessment: Intensely roasty; no rubber tones but overwhelmingly charred. Rather light-bodied but dense in sensation. The burned notes carry resiny hints of charred pine and pungent Mediterranean herbs; rosemary perhaps. Reader P. Teel found this coffee "deep, rich and flavorful."
Notes: This dark-roast blend with its wonderful name combining hauteur ("Kaffe") with rustic zoology was inspired by a similarly named ale from the Big Sky Brewing company. Composed of certified organically grown coffees. Hunter Bay is a wholesale roaster with a particularly informative website and an impressive selection of coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of ultra-dark roasts who enjoy a bracingly and cleanly burned cup.
