Blind Assessment: Roast-toned, sweetly spicy. Apricot, cedar, scorched lemon zest, dark chocolate, black peppercorn in aroma and cup. Briskly sweet acidity; satiny mouthfeel. The crisp, dry finish centers on cedar-toned chocolate notes with a hint of black peppercorn.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Guatemala and Ethiopia. Old Town Roasting is a micro-roaster focused on coffee, community and compassion.

The Bottom Line: A good choice for those who appreciate a tactfully dark-roasted blend that maintains its fruit and chocolate notes throughout the profile, with support from deep spice tones.
