Blind Assessment: Intense, sweet-toned aroma: toast, baking spices. In the cup subdued fruit flavors hint at grapefruit before fading to a sustained rosemary- and sage-toned herb. Complications of cedar and bittersweet chocolate carry from the cup to the pungent finish.
Notes: All of the components of this blend are certified organically grown. Based in the Catskill Mountains of New York, La Bean Coffee is a small roasting company that serves wholesale and Internet retail customers with fresh roasted coffee and focuses its business practices on social and philanthropic goals of sustainability and fairness.

Who Should Drink It: A robust, pungent, roast-influenced cup with a twist of fruit and a Sumatra influence.
