North Pole Coffee Roasters
|Roaster Location:||North Pole, Alaska|
|Review Date:||December 1998|
Blind Assessment: Dominated by a dry, unforgiving pungency. The center of the coffee has little resilience or shimmer. A touch of hard, rubbery taste surfaces in the finish. I have to assume that something went wrong with the roast.
Notes: Dominated by a dry, unforgiving pungency. A touch of hard, rubbery taste surfaces in the finish. Something apparently went wrong with the roast. Small craft roasters like North Pole Coffee Roasting Company may suffer an occasional lapse at the roaster, which I assume accounts for the disappointment here.
Who Should Drink It: The holiday factor:I'd let the elves drink this one and order their North Pole Blend for the party in the south 48.
