Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
Luxuriously sweet, delicately pungent, with tart but lush tropical fruit notes, tamarind perhaps, running through the profile from aroma to finish. The tamarind fruit notes incline toward a richly raisin-toned chocolate in the long finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: $7.95/14.08oz
Very sweet aroma with fresh peach and chocolate mid tones and balancing cedar bottom notes. Delicate in the cup with a gently tart acidity wrapped in a rather giddy sweetness. The fruit notes are cleanly wine-like.

  • CoffeeMaria

  • India Jumboor Estate Plantation A

Roast: Light Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
Sweet and fruity in the aroma with raisin and chocolate complication. In the cup delicate in mouthfeel, tartly sweet, and richly and roundly fruity. Cleanly sweet and rich in the short finish, though a slight but not unpleasurable astringency lingers in the long.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
Sweet, midtoned, and intensely fragrant with an odd but pleasingly complex of sweet citrus (orange and Meyer lemon?) and fresh-cut cedar. This striking aromatic combination hints at a sort of herb-toned chocolate toward the rich but slightly heavy, bittersweet finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
The aroma is sweetly and gently pungent with spice and dried apricot. In the cup very sweet, smooth in mouthfeel, with a quietly complex, raisin-toned fruit that manages to suggest a sort of wine-toned chocolate.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
Densely but sweetly and gently pungent in the aroma. Richly low-key, heavy-bodied, with gently charred cedar notes. Just sweet and complex enough to escape inertia.

Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
In the aroma sweetly pungent, rich but delicate, complicated by low-toned fruit suggesting ripe apricots. The lovely aromatics are slightly less impressive in the cup, where they are dominated by a sharp bittersweetness. Slightly astringent in the finish.

  • India Monsooned Malabar

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
Aromatic woods and a hint of sweetly fermented fruit in the aroma. Very sweet in the cup, with rich walnut notes and a continued hint of fermented fruit inclining toward chocolate - think of overripe apricots rolled in chocolate sprinkles.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
In the aroma sweet and pungent with aromatic wood notes and a whiff of fermented fruit. In the cup nutty and sweet; the fermented fruit tones intensify as the cup cools, landing in a potentially intriguing spot somewhere between chocolate and composted apricot.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 2004
Origin: India Price: NA
Dense, heavy aroma: fresh-cut pine, Mediterranean herbs, with an elusive hint of fruit - pear perhaps. In the cup an unusually heavy, rather gritty body, bitter walnut tones and distinct pine and resiny herb notes - rosemary perhaps.
