Roast: Light Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Boquete, Panama Price: NA
Exquisitely delicate aroma suggests a fine Oolong tea, with extravagant floral notes but a distinct (and coffeeish) hint of chocolate. The chocolate strengthens in the cup, with a tartly sweet, lemon-toned acidity. The lemon-chocolate notes outlast a gentle astringency in the long, pleasing finish.

Deep aroma with dry floral and tart berry and chocolate notes. Sweetly high-toned and acidy in the cup, delicately rich, hints of dry berry, sweet herb, flowers. Lightly astringent but refreshing finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Boquete, Panama Price: $37.50/12oz
High-toned, complex aroma: lemon, flowers, sweet herbs, perhaps a cedar-toned, semi-sweet chocolate. Smoothes and quiets in the cup, with the semi-sweet chocolate, lemon and herb notes dominating. Slight but pleasing astringency in the finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Honduras Price: NA
A crisp, malty fruit runs through the profile, suggesting a low key bouquet of possibilities: peach, cedar, chocolate, black currant, cherry. The finish is particularly impressive, rich, sweet, long, and nuanced with persistent berry and cherry tones.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Esteli Department, Nicaragua Price: NA
Extraordinary aroma: high-toned, delicate but intense, lilac and a chocolaty lemon. The chocolate-lemon and floral notes carry into the cup, but are backgrounded by a sweet but intense acidity. Clean, sweet finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Huehuetenango, Guatemala Price: $9.95/12oz
Slight cedary roastiness in the aroma, with a peach- or banana-toned dark chocolate that carries into the cup with a rich, pungent sweetness. The low-toned fruit lingers pleasingly in the long finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Bolivia Price: NA
A quiet but deeply rich coffee. Fresh-cut cedar and semi-sweet chocolate carry from the husky aroma through pungently sweet cup to an impressively long, resonant finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Esteli Department, Nicaragua Price: NA
A quiet, very sweet, delicately chocolate-toned coffee. Caramel and chocolate tones dominate in aroma and cup, gently complicated by floral top notes. Slightly astringent in the long finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2005
Origin: La Paz, Honduras Price: NA
Gently bittersweet aroma with chocolate, cherry and cedar notes. Roundly rich in the cup, with distinct dry cocoa and surprising floral notes. Sweet and rich in the short finish, with a slight astringent bite in the long. Gains in power and quiet complexity as it cools.

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2005
Origin: La Paz, Honduras Price: NA
Smoky, cedar- and cherry-toned fruit in the aroma. In the cup round, rich, bittersweet, with a tart, cherryish chocolate - think pie cherries rolled in unsweetened chocolate - and a sweet, floral-toned acidity. The finish strikes me as slightly too astringent.

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Pitalito, Colombia Price: NA
Intense aroma: cedar, caramel, and a hint of fruit that reads as semi-sweet chocolate. Round and full in the cup, with the pungent, cedar-toned chocolate complicated by a shimmer of orange citrus. The pleasingly pungent cedar tones turn a bit heavy and astringent in the finish.
