Peggy Sue’s Espresso
|Roaster Location:||Kalispell, Montana|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Review Date:||May 2009|
Complex espresso with a savory-sweet character and a wide sensory range. Co-taster Byron Holcomb (91) associated the savory-sweet tendencies with Southern comfort food, but for those who don't know sweet collard greens and carrots in butter he helpfully elaborates: The aroma displays "honey, clove and green veggies," the body is heavy, the flavor in the small cup "light and bright with nice notes of sweet and sour." Ken (91) more prosaically reads a smoky, slightly salty pungency complicated by lively floral-fruit top notes. Fades slightly in four parts milk but retains a pleasing floral and savory vegetable character complicating the usual milk-influenced chocolate.
Fieldhead's Coffee is a small-batch wholesale and Internet retail roaster that roasts on order and promises shipping the same day as the coffee is roasted. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Attractive and original in its juxtaposition of savory weight and floral vivaciousness.
