Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 2005
Origin: Minas Gerais State, Brazil Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Quietly but giddily complex. Fruit notes read as a sort of spicy papaya and semi-sweet chocolate in the aroma. The cup reveals dramatic floral notes with the fruit reading as orange, though still with a semi-sweet chocolate tendency that carries from the rich short finish to clean, lingering long.

Notes: Produced using biodynamic organic methods on the Santa Terezinha ("Little St. Teresa") farm by grower Paulo Sergio Almeida. Santa Terezinha coffees are frequent winners in Brazil's Cup of Excellence competitions, and took first prize in 2001. Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers one of the country's largest selections of single-origin coffees. This coffee is an Allegro "Authentic Food Artisan" selection. Visit or call 800-277-1107 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Abandoned summer romantics.


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.
