Blind Assessment: Balanced, quiet blend with just a hint of dark-roast character. Caramel, cedar, plum and hints of dark chocolate in aroma and cup. Gentle, roast-rounded acidity; smoothly light mouthfeel. The caramel turns toward chocolate in a simple but agreeably balanced finish.
Notes: Café Excellence is a roaster/retailer located in Audubon, Pennsylvania owned by the Valerio family, whose history in coffee stretches back to 1958. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Happy fence-sitters. Nicely situated on the cusp between medium- and moderately dark-roasted, with an easy-drinking caramel and plum character.
