Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2012
Origin: Peru; Ecuador. Price: $11.45/12 ounces
Tart, sweetly bright, complex. Lemon, jasmine-like flowers, cocoaish nut, fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Fine, wine-like acidity; light but smooth, silky mouthfeel. The flavor-saturated finish is drying in the short but sweet and juicy in the long.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2012
Origin: Africa; the Americas; Indonesia Price: $11.99/12 ounces
Balanced, quietly rich: orangy citrus and pungent berry, rounded by a caramelly cocoa in aroma and cup. Gentle, complexly expressed acidity; smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish fades rather quickly.

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2012
Origin: Latin America; Indonesia. Price: $15.00/12 ounces
Robust, strong-gestured coffee. Nut, citrus, fresh-cut fir and a deep, apricot-like sweetness in aroma and cup. The acidity is rich and complex though slightly astringent; the mouthfeel full though a little rough-textured. Rich finish with a salty-savory edge.

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2012
Origin: Latin America; East Africa. Price: $14.25/12 ounces
Impressive aroma: caramelly chocolate, almond, lemon, grape, a hint of flowers. Tartly rich acidity; fullish though rather rough mouthfeel. Aromatics persist but simplify a bit in the cup and finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2012
Origin: Latin America; East Africa. Price: $11.95/16 ounces
Pleasing aroma: sweet-toned and deep; orange, fresh-cut fir, a rounding hint of caramel. The acidity is quiet, perhaps muted; the body is light though the mouthfeel hints at silkiness. Aromatics simplify in the cup, dampened by a slight woodiness. Fades very quickly to a mild astringency in the finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2012
Origin: Latin America. Price: $11.99/12 ounces
A straightforward, rather plain coffee. Most complex in the sweet, gently pungent aroma: raisin, cedar, dark chocolate. Sweet-toned but subdued acidity; slightly lean mouthfeel. The attractive aromatics persist but simplify in the cup and finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2012
Origin: Latin America. Price: $11.95/16 ounces
Sweet-toned, balanced but rather monotoned. Pineapple, orange, cedary dark chocolate in aroma and cup, dampened throughout by a woody flatness. Muted acidity; slightly lean mouthfeel. Clean, round but simple finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2012
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $10.39/12 ounces
Delicate, perhaps a bit subdued. Vaguely sweet-toned, slightly cardboardy aroma with hints of flowers, nut, and raisiny dark chocolate. Gentle, muted acidity; smooth, almost silky mouthfeel. Very simple in the cup; bare hints of lemon, cocoaish nut, flowers perhaps. Clean finishing; rich in the short but flavor fades quickly in the long.
