Old Tavern Estate, 2001-02 Crop
|Roaster Location:||Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada|
|Coffee Origin:||Blue Mountain growing region, eastern Jamaica.|
|Review Date:||March 2003|
Medium-bodied but expansively rich with complex mid to low notes. Cedar, nuts and dry fruit in the aroma; sweetly melodic fruit and floral notes in the cup. A dash of astringency in the finish tightens the fruit notes toward grapefruit.
Old Tavern Estate is one of a few farms in the Blue Mountain district permitted by the Coffee Board of Jamaica to export its coffee as an estate origin. Imported by Kaya Imports and roasted by Down East Coffee, Notre Dame, New Brunswick, Canada. Visit
Who Should Drink It
This past crop Old Tavern Blue Mountain is not as heavy bodied as the Blue Mountain ideal, but a classic coffee in the sweet, low-toned European mode.
