THOMAS HAMMER

Forget the bitter, burnt flavor of some of those other (westside) coffee roasters. Thomas Hammer goes down smooth and is redolent with deep coffee-ness, or what Thomas Hammer would call earthiness. Turning 20 this year, Thomas Hammer is coming out with a new "20" blend of Kenyan and Sulawesi beans that promises earthy undertones beneath "complex layers of tart and tangy citrus." (AF)
