Organic Aztec Dark
|Roaster Location:||Logan, Utah|
|Review Date:||December 2001|
In the nose, brightly sweet grapefruit tones animate a vaguely spicy roastiness. In the cup the aggressive roastiness turns bitter and slightly charred, lifted only by a shadow sweetness and a memory of citrus. Substantial body.
This coffee is "triple certified," meaning it is certified organically grown, fair-traded, and Smithsonian Institution certified "Bird Friendly." Caffe Ibis is a long-established, pioneering small-batch specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to social, economic, and environmental responsibility. Located at the edge of the Wasatch Range of mountains, its slogan is "Mountain Grown, Mountain Roasted."
Who Should Drink It
Full body and authoritative bitterness should help this coffee maintain presence in almost any quantity of milk and sweetener.
