Blind Assessment: In the aroma crisp, deep, cherryish fruit and fresh-cut cedar. In the cup leanish mouthfeel with a continued crisply roasty character, slight smoky edge and an undercurrent of ripe fruit. The finish is simple but round and rich.
Notes: Blacksaks Roasters, "Where it's all about the bean," is a new boutique specialty roaster offering very small batch roast-to-order service and blends that are composed after the components are roasted rather than before. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A good choice for lovers of the gentler, more moderate style of dark roast.
