Blind Assessment: Balanced
and quietly complete. Sweetly and gently acidy, lightly syrupy
mouthfeel. Dark chocolate, fir, caramel and, particularly as the cup
cools, an orangy, raisiny fruit. The chocolate in particular carries
into a rich, very sweet-toned finish.
Roast is named for Chuck Jones, co-founder of Jones Coffee, a Pasadena
roasting company. Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) is the highest grade of
Guatemala coffee. This SHB is from Finca La Igualdad in northwestern
Guatemala. Visit www.thebestcoffee.com or call 626-654-9291 for more
Who Should Drink It: Classic American breakfast cup in a medium-dark style: balanced, resonantly bright, sweet-finishing.
