Assessment: Big and strong, luxurious cordovan leather aroma. The taste is deep and bold with a “sweet” dark chocolate richness. It has a full-bodied roundness with a rich velvety finish.
City/Medium. A lighter coffee bean roast will yield an altogether different profile but just as intriguing. A nutty richness and a penetrating long finish would likely keep your attention.
Medium Roasts (American, Breakfast, Brown, City, Medium) Medium light brown beans. The American roast is the most common roast used for cupping and professional coffee tasting. An official Medium or City roast (more common in the Western U.S.) is slightly darker than American (more common in the Eastern and southern U.S.), and is an excellent choice for tasting the differences between most varietals.
