Kahve Barcelona Blend
|Roaster Location:||Belmont, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Review Date:||April 2004|
Blind Assessment: In the aroma sweetly and cleanly roasty and cedar-toned. The roasty tones turn burned and rather cloyingly sweet in the cup - lightly charred cedar or sandalwood.
Notes: Served at Olives restaurant in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Olives features famous chef Todd English's Mediterranean cuisine. Kahve is the specialty coffee line of Espresso Express, a Boston-area wholesale specialty roaster. This coffee combines ultra-dark and lighter roasted beans, but the ultra-dark component overwhelms the lighter in the cup. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy dramatically charred foods.
