Silken Splendor - Philz - San Francisco, California

Preparation: Cuisinart drip

Scores:  Scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being excellent
Aroma: 8
Balance: 7
Flavor: 6
Smoothness: 7

- Smooth

- not enough flavor

Summary: This is a pleasantly smooth coffee.  I think it is named appropriately as it does seem splendidly silky.   It is light to medium bodied and easy on the palate.  There are tones of flowers with a tart and citrus finish.  The aroma from the freshly ground beans was wonderful!  I was expecting to experience a more intense flavor because the aroma was full and robust.  This is not a coffee to add cream and sugar to because you would lose the coffee in the mix.  It is best alone.

Overall score: 7

****  I plan to use the french press next time to compare the flavor experience/intensity.
