The aroma of the Captains Roast is a very big, rich, and deep smoky aroma, with nice earthy undertones, and I found a slight hint of spice that will certainly wake up the household with its enticing aroma.
I found the flavor of the Captains Roast to be just as wonderful as the aroma. You can taste the big, bold, deep, rich smoky flavor, in perfect balance with the spice and earthiness. What really stood out for me? How naturally sweet, and smooth this coffee is, and for a surprising treat I picked up a nice citrus finish that left a nice, clean pallet.
When I added whole milk, I found it to be very pleasing, making this coffee a dessert coffee for me.
The body of the Captains Roast is impressively full and thick, for a recommended breakfast coffee; this most certainly fits the bill. There is a pleasing, mouth feel, and I did not get any sour notes, what so ever, when I was drinking this coffee.
The Acidity of the Captains Roast was very pleasant, not sharp, or sour, but nice, and mellow, with a surprisingly clean, sweet, and crisp finish, not a long finish as you would find in most Asian pacific coffees. The natural sweetness, and the citrus notes give rise to the unique attribute of this coffee from Carta Coffee Merchants.
