A dark-roast on the dry side. Preserves some of the bright, acidy tones of lighter roasts, balancing them with prune and tobacco in the mid ranges. No carbon, but not much sweetness either. Good range from top to middle of the profile, but short on depth and dimension.
Available year round, this is a dark-roast on the dry side. Good range from the top to the middle, but short on the depth and dimension. No carbon, but not much sweetness. Marrakesh Blend is one of Caffeination's recommended holiday blends, but is available the year round.
Who Should Drink It
The holiday factor:Still another French-press coffee, this one for those who don't want to give up entirely on acidy pucker as they enter the low-toned, pungent territory of after-dinner roasts.
