Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: September 2007
Origin: Rwanda Price: $12.95/12oz
Intense, high-toned aroma: flowers, butterscotch, orange. In the cup wine-like acidity, deep body and a continued buttery, honeyed, giddily floral character complicated by tart cherry, orange and pipe tobacco notes. Long, rich, flavor-saturated finish.

In the aroma pungent black cherry and berry notes with lush undercurrents of orange and honey. The cedary berry notes carry richly into the cup with a continued sweet envelopment of orange and honey. Deep, long finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: September 2007
Origin: Ethiopia, Yirgacheffe Price: NA
A lucidly pure, deeply sweet coffee. In aroma and cup lavish floral notes and gently tart coffee fruit complicate molasses and honey tones that sail with gentle voluptuousness into a long finish.

Intense, floral-toned aroma with pungent suggestions of prune and cedary chocolate. In the cup very smoothly balanced, with soft acidity, silky mouthfeel and a richly dry, distinct cocoa that sustains its presence in the long finish.

  • The Roasterie

  • Sumatra Fair Trade - Organic Line

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: September 2007
Origin: Sumatra Price: NA
In the aroma deeply pungent with a sweet earthy mustiness that suggests grapefruit with additional hints of honey and chocolate. In the cup full body with pleasantly rough mouthfeel and continued earthy notes that read as chocolate, honey and pungent citrus. Rich finish with a slight clinging astringency.

Soft aroma with a quiet, tightly-knit complexity: cocoa, cedar, hints of honey and melon. In the cup light-bodied, delicate, with sustaining hints of honey, cocoa, sweet flowering grass. Short but clean, honeyed finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: September 2007
Origin: Brazil, Brasil, Minas Gerais State, Cerrado Price: NA
A slight musty fruit ferment serendipitously complicates this richly low-key coffee, reading as cocoa and cedar-toned ripe orange in both aroma and cup. A very slight astringency smoothes out in the long, sweet finish.

Roast: Dark Review Date: September 2007
Origin: Bolivia Price: NA
Deep, gently charred tones in the aroma are complicated by semi-sweet chocolate, low-key fruit and distinct floral top notes. In the cup medium-bodied but pleasingly bananaish in mouthfeel, with a continued gently charred, deeply roasty character. The floral notes dissipate but the fundamental chocolate-banana-toned fruit persists into the slightly tight finish.

Origin: Guatemala Price: NA
Deep, sweet-toned aroma with cedar and muted hints of flowers, orange and semi-sweet chocolate. In the cup softly acidy, rather full-bodied, with continued hints of flowers and orange- and peach-toned fruit. Rich finish.

  • Dean's Beans

    Orange, Massachusetts
  • Organic Fair Trade Italian Espresso Roast

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: September 2007
Origin: Costa Rica Price: NA
Evaluated as a regular brewed coffee rather than as espresso. In the aroma roundly and deeply roasty: cedar, cardamom, flowers. In the cup crisply pungent, smooth, simple, with a roast-influenced fruit that with imagination reads as semi-sweet chocolate. Cleanly rich finish.
