Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2007
Origin: Jamaica Price: $29.95/12oz
Sweet-toned, soft, very delicate aroma with orange, floral and pungently buttery (butterscotch?) notes. In the cup light to medium bodied but silky in mouthfeel, with a gently bittersweet character and crisp chocolate and orange peel notes. As the cup cools an attractive mint-like note also emerges. The chocolate and orange notes linger impressively in the long, clean finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2007
Origin: Jamaica Price: $19.95/8oz
Very sweet-toned, very deeply dimensioned aroma, with lush cedary chocolate notes and hints of banana and molasses. In the cup plush in mouthfeel, roundly resonant, chocolate-toned. Rich but simple finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 2007
Origin: Jamaica Price: NA
Sweet-toned, deep aroma with distinct orange notes and hints of nut and semi-sweet chocolate. The cup is dominated by a plush orange- and wine-toned acidity, sweet and richly balanced, with continued hints of dry chocolate that carry into a richly astringent finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2007
Origin: Jamaica Price: NA
Crisp, rather limited aroma: caramel and milk chocolate. In the cup sweet, delicate, rather shallow and lean, with a pleasant dry nutty chocolate character. Unexpectedly, the finish stretches out splendidly, rich and chocolate-toned.

Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2007
Origin: Haiti. Price: NA
Soft aroma, with floral top notes, and prune- or apricot-toned fruit and a hint of chocolate. Simplifies in the cup, turning gently bittersweet. The deep-toned, prune-like fruit grows more pungent, the chocolate hints drier. Smoothes out again in the impressively sweet, finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2007
Origin: Jamaica Price: NA
Sweet-toned, delicately rich aroma: hints of flowers, milk chocolate, orange, molasses. In the cup the mouthfeel is lean to the point of watery, with aromatics so delicate they almost don't register: orange, molasses, pipe tobacco, and nut-like notes that hint at chocolate. Impressively clean, sweet finish.

Roast: Light Review Date: July 2007
Origin: Puerto Rico Price: NA
Opens well: Very sweet-toned, deep aroma with a hint of mustiness that merely complicates a tight-knit, delicate complexity: cedar, semi-sweet chocolate, dry berry, orange. In the cup remains sweet, but the musty character dominates, narrowing the aromatics toward a sort of rough, cedary chocolate. Rather tight, salty finish.
