Seven Hills Coffee

I was at Jungle Jim's in Cincinnati, Ohio a while ago and saw a display of Seven Hills Coffee.  I noticed the coffee was roasted there in Cincinnati so I was intrigued to try some.  

Seven Hills is a wholesale specialty coffee roaster that was started back in 1986 by two old college roommates that roasted 11 bags of coffee that year.  Since then their business has grown to roasting more than 200,000 pounds of coffee each year serving coffee houses and restaurants in the Midwest.  While sourcing single estate coffee from more than 20 countries, Seven Hills strives to consistently serve well roasted beans with superior aroma.  

I have had the pleasure of sampling 5 of their roasts and here are some of my tasting notes.

First up was their Guatemalan Antigua.  This was a well balanced cup of coffee with an amazing aroma.

Next, I had the Papua New Guinea.  If I had to pick a favorite this would be it.  The cup opened with some rich almost chocolate like flavor and had an earthy finish.

A close 2nd for my taste preference was the Mexican Chiapas. This coffee's taste profile seemed to change as it cooled for me.  I enjoyed the nutty undertones of this cup.

Another roast I sampled was the  Organic French Sumatra.  This was a dark roast coffee with a bold taste from start to finish.

Last to mention, but in no way last in flavor was the Organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.  This coffee had a silky finish and hints of chocolate throughout.
Overall, Seven Hills Coffee has a wide range of roasts and flavors and certain to have something for every coffee drinker.  As a wholesaler they are very equipped to serve your office or business with coffee and coffee related products.  

Please note Seven Hills Coffee did provide me with samples of their coffee for this blog post, but the photos and any opinions are my own.
