  • Bossa Nova Espresso

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: March 2005
Origin: Not Disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Chocolate and toast show in the rather subdued aroma. In the small cup the body is medium and the mouthfeel slightly lean, with a simple but attractive pungent/sweet character complicated by a cocoa or dry chocolate. Rich, semi-sweet chocolate finish. In milk balanced and crisply sweet, with the chocolate retaining its dry authority.

Notes: All coffees composing this blend are certified organically grown, grown in mixed-species shade, and certified Fair Trade, meaning they were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Barefoot Coffee Roasters ("Serious coffee. Happy people") is a boutique, artisan coffee roaster specializing in certified sustainable coffees. Visit or call 408-248-4500 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer their luxuries crisp in flavor and progressive in politics.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
