Roast: NA Review Date: December 1999
Origin: Price: NA
Rich, deep, intense, with the dry fruit robustness of a cabernet and the tartly sweet black currant notes so cherished by lovers of Kenya. In the finish swoons into a ringing, almost sugary sweetness.

Roast: NA Review Date: December 1999
Origin: Price: NA
Animated by an almost effervescently dry, winy fruit elevated by hints of flowers. Sweetens slightly in the shimmers of the fruity finish.

Roast: NA Review Date: December 1999
Origin: Price: NA
A very clean, bright version of the fruity Yemen cup: the wine tones are rich and smooth, with only a hint of sweet ferment near the finish. Surprising floral notes at the top and a long, clean, sweet, chocolate-toned aftertaste.

Metaphor fails. This is a coffee that refers to nothing except what it is: a superb coffee, grand yet elegant, dry yet sweet, balanced, full-bodied, complete.

Roast: NA Review Date: December 1999
Origin: Price: NA
The cup is redolent with the fresh, sweet perfume of clay. Slightly musty tones give a dry, pungent edge to aroma and aftertaste, framing the sweetness in the cup.

Roast: NA Review Date: December 1999
Origin: Price: NA
Smooth, subtle, and above all, sweet. Buoyantly soft rather than bright or brisk, with sweet nut tones in the aroma and sweet chocolate in the finish.

Roast: NA Review Date: December 1999
Origin: Pluma Hidalgo village, Oaxaca State, Mexico, Central American Price: NA
A coffee that meets us with a smile, giving everything out front: gently brisk acidity, a touch of wine-toned fruit, floral sweetness. Thereafter it stands pat, light-bodied and balanced, perhaps a bit shallow in dimension.

Origin: Price: NA
Pungently rich and round in the nose. In the cup the signature hard mustiness is balanced by sweetness, particularly in the finish.
