Batdorf & Bronson
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Review Date:||October 1997|
Blind Assessment: This remarkably light, self-effacing blend displays no acidity and no bitterness. Only the slightest carbon astringency surfaces in the aftertaste. Unfortunately, this tribute to subtlety doesn't display much power or complexity either -- only an evanescent caramel-chocolate sweetness, which loses its way almost completely in milk.
Notes: This remarkably light, self-effacing blend displays no acidity and no bitterness. One of two Batdorf & Bronson Espresso blends in the tasting, this one is recommended by the blender-roaster for straight Espresso. Visit www.batdorfcoffee.com or call 800-955-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: People who find silk too disturbing and cotton too rough. Espresso drinkers who make fine distinctions and delicate compromises.
