Blind Assessment: Rather intensely acidy, with clean floral and wine-toned fruit notes that deepen toward a bright chocolate in the finish. The acidity is clean and free of astringency, but may be too aggressive for some coffee drinkers.
Notes: Sold whole-bean in a 16-ounce valve bag; 44 cents per ounce. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A flat-out, no apologies, old-fashioned American breakfast cup, high-toned and acidy. Forget the latte, buddy, and set this one next to your pancakes (or donuts).
