|Roaster Location:||Ozone Park, New York|
|Review Date:||February 1997|
Blind Assessment: This classic medium-dark coffee gives us solid, mouth-filling dark-roast pungency, though the carbon notes seem to co-opt its sweetness. Some acidity survives the roast, and fills out the top of the profile nicely.

Who Should Drink It : Anyone curious about the name of the blend. People who waffle between drip and French-press and want a coffee delicate enough for the former but tough enough for the latter. Should stand up to the hot plate for a while before losing character.
