Blind Assessment: The Gimme!Coffee package describes this blend's aroma as "Centennial Harley leather." I can-t say much about Centennial or Harley, but I'd agree on the leather, with maybe a kinky smear of chocolate thrown in. Flavor is described as "Dive Bar Chic." As a dive bar innocent I'd call it dense, simple, but big and balanced, with more leather and perhaps some pleasantly pungent cedar notes. No leather makes it into the milk, but a very pleasant, high-toned chocolate-and-nuts sweetness does.
Notes: Gimme! Coffee is a small-batch roaster with four espresso bars and an irreverent but passionate vision of coffee. Visit www.gimmecoffee.com or call 607-273-0111 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Dive-bar crawlers with good taste.
