The Coffee Roaster
|Roaster Location:||Sherman Oaks, California|
|Review Date:||February 1999|
The roast dominates the coffee here, overlaying the mouth-filling Sumatra richness with distinct carbon tones. The result is a dry, pungently full profile, powerful but a bit to astringent for my taste.

Who Should Drink It
Brewed double-strength filter-drip or French-press this coffee should please those who like to add sweetener and/or dairy to mellow a sharp but full cup.
