Batdorf & Bronson
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Northern Tanzania.|
|Review Date:||June 2007|
Blind Assessment: Low-toned and nut-like aroma with a hint of chocolate. In the cup round, simple but resonant, with fruit that carries hints of chocolate, red wine, orange perhaps. Rich and sweet in the short finish, a bit heavy in the long.
Notes: Peaberries result when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Batdorf & Bronson is a leading wholesale quality-oriented specialty roaster with roasting locations in both Olympia, Washington and Atlanta, Georgia.

Who Should Drink It: A quiet but deeply dimensioned coffee with a low-toned presence that should hold its own with whitener.
