Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: May 2005
Origin: Not Disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Richly balanced aroma with hints of chocolate- and sweet-spice-toned fruit. In the cup sweet, delicate, refreshingly light-bodied with some almost giddily high-toned fruit and floral notes, but betrayed by an undercurrent of cardboardy flatness. Whatever caused the cardboardy or woody sensation seems to dominate in the thin, flat finish.

Notes: Health angle: Acidity lowered through treatment of the green beans before roasting. Hevla Coffee is a wholesaler of roasted acid-reduced coffees. Visit www.hevla.com or call 888-838-7318 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Aside from the thin finish, an appealing summertime coffee, with its refreshing sweetness, fruit, delicate body and absence of astringency.


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.
