Our Smuggler's Brew is created with gourmet coffee beans from Guatemala in a double roast profile with just the right touch of beans from Ethiopia. Enjoy the wonderful aroma of its full body with a deep and lush finish. - Rico y Suave. Rated 88 out of 100 by CoffeeReview.com
Island Joe Note: If you enjoy using a French Press, then we highly recommend trying our Smuggler's Brew, as the natural cedar and chocolate tones seem to float to the top of your cup, which offers not only a wonderful looking cup of gourmet coffee, but the aromas really come forth with a warm and roasty feeling really getting you off to a great start in the mornings. Double Roast Profile of 100% Arabica Coffee Beans Guatemalan Antigua Based About 75% Medium Roast and 25% Light French Roast.
Blind Assessment: Very impressive aroma: deep and lush with low-toned fruit (banana?) notes and hints of cedar and chocolate. In the cup crisp and roasty but still sweet with floral notes and a rich fruit that reads as semi-sweet chocolate. Simple but cleanly sweet finish.
