|Roaster Location:||Kent, Washington|
|Review Date:||March 1997|
Blind Assessment: Carbon tones overlay the sweet fruit fragrances of this dark-roasted Kenya, dampening but not obliterating them. A remarkable body and dimension open underneath the carbon, assuring a long, complex finish.
Notes: Carbon tones overlay but not obscure the sweet fruit fragrances. Remarkable body. Grade AA
Who Should Drink It: Seattle palates who want some Kenya with their dark roast. Brew it strong and take it with milk. Ideal for the sharp, carbon-toned cappuccino favored in San Francisco's North Beach; punches through the milk with no-nonsense authority.
