Island Joe's Gourmet Coffee
Smuggler’s Brew, Medium-Dark Roast
|Roaster Location:||Key West, Florida|
|Coffee Origin:||Not Disclosed|
|Review Date:||October 2005|
Very impressive aroma: deep and lush with low-toned fruit (banana?) notes and hints of cedar and chocolate. In the cup crisp and roasty but still sweet with floral notes and a rich fruit that reads as semi-sweet chocolate. Simple but cleanly sweet finish.
There are a couple of nice stories about Island Joe's Coffee and this blend. The first is that Joe Wells started his small-batch roasting business in a gas station because no one else in his part of the Florida Keys sold fresh-roasted coffee. The other is that his 17-year-old son Trey formulated and roasts this very impressive blend. Visit
