    Local Roasters in PA

    Hi everybody

    So recently i picked up from the supermarket coffee brewed in west chester, it had the date roasted and everything on the label. The brand is called Kimbleton and the whole bean blend i bought was African Mistress, similar to a french roast but didnt stay too long on the palate. It was much better as an espresso rather than regular auto-drip--but anyway it got me thinking and i have a few questions if anybody can help:

    --I realized what a huge difference the freshness makes in the taste and also in the crema i was able with my espresso shots. I read somewhere you really should consume coffee no more than 2 weeks after its roasted for the optimal flavor. This bag had been roasted a little less than a month before i bought it, but still was really impressive. Does anybody know any other local PA roasters or where i can get really fresh beans?

    --This is a little random, and maybe has already been discussed on the forum (if so I'm sorry for bringing up old topics) but I wanted to learn more about describing coffee flavors. If anyone smokes cigars they must know what I mean, the different classifications, subtle flavors...is there any kind of "flavor rubric" for lack of a better term applicable to coffee?

    I saw something like what I'm talking about on the side of an espresso blend container once, and the one criterion i remember the coffee was graded on was roundness, but I can't remember the others and I would just like to learn more about this

    Hey Hayton.

    You can purchase a "Coffee Flavor Tasters Wheel" poster from the SCAA which is very helpful. Here is a link to an image of the Aroma/Taste portion.

    You can order it at this link:

    In many ways it is much like a wine tasting.

    Which roasters do you use?

    Hi Anne,
    I'm the Malka (female) part of malkanjeff.
    I do business in Egg Harbor Township as a broker.
    Do you know which roasters you're using yet?
    I could come down and meet with you if you're interested in any Organic Fair Trade coffees and bring you samples of more local ones. You would get wholesale pricing and you could order thru the internet if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested and I'll give you my biz contact info.
    Take Care,
    Malka

    Thanks, Malka! I may take you up on that somewhere in the future. Right now, I am just concentrating on the build out phase, or at leasting getting it moving.
