Peaberry's Coffee & Tea
|Roaster Location:||Oakland, California|
|Review Date:||March 1998|
Blind Assessment: A darkish roast style asserts itself here, turning the heavy Sumatra center distinctly pungent. A slight sweetness emerges in the finish, but the mildly astringent pungency dominates in the aftertaste. A vibrant aliveness in the center of this coffee is its most attractive feature.
Notes: A dark-roast style asserts itself, turning the heavy Sumatra center distinctly pungent, yet vibrant. A slight sweetness emerges in the finish, with a mildly astringent pungency in the aftertaste. Processed by traditional Sumatra methods.
Who Should Drink It: Dark-roast aficionados who lean toward the dry, pungent end of the bittersweet dark-roast flavor complex.
