North Pole Coffee Roasters
North Pole Blend
|Roaster Location:||North Pole, Alaska|
|Review Date:||December 1998|
Blind Assessment: A solid American-style breakfast profile: Dry and acidy but balanced, complete, closing on rich. Everything is up front, however: limited dimension and development.
Notes: A solid American-style breakfast coffee from a small roaster in Santa's neighborhood. Dry and acidy but balanced, complete, closing on rich. My gazetteer doesn't list a North Pole in Alaska, but it must be there because it has a zip code and at least one 800- number, the small North Pole Coffee Roasting Company.
Who Should Drink It: The holiday factor:A brisk, honest pancakes-and-eggs coffee with a nice red bag and a value-added location.
