Evaluated at a steeping time of 6 minutes. This beverage is composed of coffee that has essentially been toasted but not roasted. Toasted grain, cocoa nib, hints of raw cashew and limelike citrus in aroma and cup. Sweet, woody/grainy structure with a hint of bitterness but no acidy sensation whatsoever. The mouthfeel is thin and tea-like but silky in texture. Grain and nut fade in the finish, though a woody sweetness lasts.
The Golden Ratio company aims at selling North America on a coffee produced by steeping plump bags of ground coffee that has essentially been toasted rather than roasted. Instructions accompanying these pouches suggest steeping the pouch 5 to 10 minutes to produce an 8-ounce beverage. We achieved what we considered optimal results (maximum aromatic interest) at around 6 minutes. The pouches also can be brewed at room temperature for a recommended 12 to 18 hours.

Those who want caffeine and the health benefits of coffee without perceived acidity may value and enjoy this subtle, herbal-tea-like beverage. Think cocoa puffs breakfast cereal without the sugar.
