|Roaster Location:||New York, New York|
|Review Date:||March 1997|
Blind Assessment: Some wine tones survive the dark roast to complicate the acidity. Brought along to a dark roast slowly enough to spare us burned notes, but for a Kenya not a lot of body or dimension either. The pleasure would seem to be the paradox of understated acidity and dark-roast pungency.
Notes: A paradox of understated acidity and dark-roast pungency, some wine tones. Grade AA. For more information, visit www.orensdailyroast.com.
Who Should Drink It: Anyone who likes both Kenya and dark roasts. Smooth enough to drink as espresso but acidy enough to remind you that you're still drinking Kenya.
