Blind Assessment: For co-taster Byron Holcomb (92) pleasing "sweet caramelized" notes dominated, with some savory hints that together netted a suggestion of "sweet BBQ sauce." Ken (91) read the sweet/savory tendencies as flowers and aromatic wood, perhaps fresh anise. Syrupy body, long, cleanly rich finish with impressive flavor persistence. In milk caramel dominated, with hints of nut (Byron), butter and flowers (Ken).
Notes: Moore Coffee is a roast-to-order artisan coffee roasting company with a well-developed Internet business and wholesale accounts. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A rather grown-up espresso, caramelly and complex, dark-roasted but expressive.
