|Roaster Location:||Menlo Park, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Southern India|
|Review Date:||July 2004|
Blind Assessment: In the aroma sweetly pungent, rich but delicate, complicated by low-toned fruit suggesting ripe apricots. The lovely aromatics are slightly less impressive in the cup, where they are dominated by a sharp bittersweetness. Slightly astringent in the finish.
Notes: Mysore is a traditional market name for wet-processed coffee from southern India. Josuma Coffee is a distinguished importer, blender and roaster of India coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who want an Indian coffee experience that will stand up to dairy and sweetener.
