Summary: What a gem of a find! If you plan to drive to Las Vegas or visit Hoover Dam you will be very close to Boulder City. It is a quaint friendly little town with lots of history and worth the stop. I stumbled upon a little coffee roaster shop while walking down Nevada Street. It is nestled in next to Milo's Cellar and Inn and if you walk too fast you might miss it. I also ran into this guy:
Okay, back to the coffee. I bought the Sumatra: Aceh Pantan Lues whole bean coffee. It had a fabulous roast date of April 25th!!! Yeah!! You know how important roast dates are! The description on the bag says this coffee has under-tones of wildness and earthiness and the beans are prepared by a small-volume group of farmers in the Pantan Lues area. (?) It is 100% Aceh coffee and on the bag it says that it is cleaner and less gamey than most Sumatras. They also describe this coffee as having a "wonderful sweetness with hints of cedar and vanilla."
This coffee was a true treat and nice surprise. The beans are dark and have one of the top ten aromas I have experienced so far. There is a sweetness that is full
and decadent, but the salty savory nutty flavor shines through at the same time. There are no smokey or ashy tones and it has a wonderful crisp finish. This coffee is one to serve to anyone you want to impress.
Overall score: 9
* Note: The coffee I was served by the fellow up above was this same coffee, but it did not taste as good from his coffee pot compared to the cup I made at home. Who knows why?
