Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Ka'u, Hawaii Price: $27.00/8 oz.
Complex and balanced flavor and aroma: orange-toned citrus, cherry, cedary aromatic wood, a hint of baking spice. The acidity is extraordinary: deep, powerful yet roundly rich and sweet. The mouthfeel is full and syrupy, the finish long and fruit-saturated.

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Sidamo, Ethiopia Price: $15.95/12 oz.
Understated floral-toned aroma unfolds dramatically in the cup with a rich cherry- and wine-like fruit and deepened floral notes. The acidity is particularly impressive, alive with wine and citrus hints. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor retains great presence and complexity in the long, resonant finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Boquete, Panama Price: $17.84/16 oz.
Delicate but complexly opulent coffee: distinctly pineapple-like fruit, flowers, aromatic wood, hints of pipe tobacco and dark chocolate in both aroma and cup. Crisp, sweet-toned acidity, lean but silky mouthfeel, long, sweet, subtly flavor-saturated finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Kona, Hawaii Price: $34.95/10 oz.
Dry berry or black currant, flowers, hints of lemon and aromatic wood in the aroma. All carry into a luxuriously sweet cup, with the lemon note dominating. Rich, complexly fruit-toned acidity, silky to lightly syrupy mouthfeel, clean, gently lemon-toned finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Sidamo, Ethiopia Price: CAD $17.00/16 oz.
Rich, brandy-like notes dominate in this classic dried-in-the-fruit coffee, complicated and enriched by cherry, orange and floral nuance. The balanced, well-integrated acidity is perhaps more wine-like than brandy-like; the mouthfeel is big and syrupy. The brandy tendency turns slightly astringent in an otherwise fine, flavor-saturated finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Sidamo, Ethiopia Price: $7.50/8 oz.
Bright with bergamot and bittersweet lemon, crisp baker’s chocolate and fresh-cut fir, this dried-in-the-fruit coffee cupped more like a fine Ethiopia washed coffee than a natural, though a rounding hint of cherry-blueberry sweetness complicated the profile and appeared to confirm its processing method. Delicate acidity; light, silky mouthfeel; long, lemon-and-cocoa-saturated finish.

  • FTO Ethiopian Gedeo Worka Natural

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Southern Ethiopia Price: $12.95/12 oz.
Big, syrupy mouthfeel and a long, deeply resonant finish particularly distinguish this coffee, but the rich acidity is impressive too, as are the sweetly pungent aromatics: fir, dark chocolate, cherry, almond.
