Mayan Black Onyx
|Roaster Location:||Cincinnati, Ohio|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||March 2002|
Blind Assessment: A rather striking dark-roast coffee in its disconnected extremes of abandoned sweetness and charred bitterness. The only relief from this (to some exhilarating) contradiction are dry cocoa notes in the finish.
Notes: Sold whole-bean in bulk; 50 cents per ounce. This coffee was nominated by a reader from New Orleans, who found it one of "the two best cups I ever had."Call 1-800-522-7894 for more info.
Who Should Drink It: A take-no-prisoners style of dark roast that lovers of extreme culinary gestures may enjoy.
