Fidalgo Bay Coffee
Nicaragua Cafe Alden
|Roaster Location:||Burlington, Washington|
|Review Date:||August 2011|
Blind Assessment: A darkish roast develops roasted nut, cedar and buttery chocolate notes in aroma and cup. Quiet, roast-rounded acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate carries into a sweet, slightly drying finish.
Notes: Fidalgo Bay is a wholesale and online retail specialty coffee roaster with a thoughtfully designed menu of coffees and a concise but effective personal roast profiling tool on its website. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy simple, full-bodied, balanced darker roasts.
