A full-bodied, flavorful roast designed to play well with milk, but rich enough to hold its own. We smell and taste lingering notes of licorice and a pleasant herbal bouquet. Worldly and complex.
A dark blend of spicy South and Central American coffees, broadened by the addition of Estate Java. Bright lemony acidity complimented with earthy, pipe tobacco aromas in the finish.
