Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2007
Origin: El Salvador Price: NA
The aroma has great depth and range of sensation: flowers, butter, cherry, hints of chocolate and cedar. In the cup rich acidity, supple mouthfeel. The aromatics simplify slightly in the mouth but retain great depth and power: tartly pungent though ripe cherry, distinct honey, a continuing hint of chocolate. Clean, sweet finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2007
Origin: Guatemala Price: NA
A quiet, very soft coffee with delicate but lush aromatics. In the nose distinct flowers, lemon, butter. The cup displays a gently bright acidity, silky, buttery mouthfeel, and a finely balanced bouquet of coffee fruit, cocoa and lemon. The cocoa softens toward chocolate in the long finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2007
Origin: Guatemala Price: NA
Quiet, shifting complexity in the aroma: orange, cedar, a hint of cinnamon. In the cup lucid, balanced, delicate: gentle acidity, silky mouthfeel, butter and continued orange notes; the cedar/cinnamon hints lean toward chocolate. Hints of flowers in the long, impressively flavor-saturated finish.

  • Ecco Caffe

    Santa Rosa, California
  • Nicaragua Cup of Excellence Organic

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2007
Origin: Nicaragua Price: NA
Very sweet-toned, lavishly floral aroma, with tart coffee fruit and a hint of cedary chocolate. In the cup silky body and the pure flavor of ripe coffee fruit, lush yet crisp, with continued chocolate nuance and perhaps molasses or moist pipe tobacco. The finish reveals a hint of astringency when the cup is hot, but only a cherryish sweetness as it cools.

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2007
Origin: El Salvador Price: NA
A very sweet coffee with a richly pungent, roast-influenced fruit character that defies easy association: for me it suggests lushly pungent pineapple; others might call it black currant or dried berry. Deep, roast-rounded acidity, lush mouthfeel, long, rich finish.

Origin: Colombia Price: NA
Deep, lush aroma: cherry, semi-sweet chocolate, flowers. In the cup smooth acidity, supple mouthfeel, sweet- and low-toned fruit and floral character suggesting semi-sweet chocolate, molasses, pipe tobacco. Simplifies a bit in the finish, particularly as the cup cools.

    San Dimas, California
  • Best of Panama #3 Elida Estate

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2007
Origin: Boquete, Panama Price: NA
Very deep-toned, naturally sweet coffee. Chocolate- and cedar-toned fruit in the aroma. In the cup softly and richly acidy, syrupy in mouthfeel, with low-toned fruit that suggests chocolate, cherry, raisin. A hint of flowers as the cup cools. Round, sweet finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2007
Origin: Nicaragua Price: NA
As roasted here, a coffee most impressive for its big body and balanced structure. Deep, sweet aroma with honey and cherry notes and hints of cedar and chocolate. Sweet in the cup with quiet acidity, syrupy body, floral-toned honey and a hint of chocolate. Round, rich, simple finish.
