Blind Assessment:

Softly sweet-toned, rather simple aroma – raisin and chocolate notes. In the cup a lean but rather silky mouthfeel, with continued raisin and sweet pipe tobacco notes and a continued lean toward milk chocolate. Simple, straightforward finish with a shimmer of astringency in the long.


Intelligentsia is a leading Chicago-area roaster with growing national reputation, a Keith Haring-style logo, outstanding coffee, and a commitment to quality epitomized by the practice of printing roast dates on coffee packaging.
