Alpen Sierra Coffee Roasters
|Roaster Location:||Lake Tahoe, California|
|Review Date:||February 1999|
Distinctive but limited. The strength of the cup is a powerfully smoky, carbony center with pleasing hints of dry chocolate. Little sweetness or range, however, making it a bit of a Johnny-one-note (though it's a rather exotic note).

Who Should Drink It
A good choice for those who prefer Conrad to Proust.
