Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: October 2005
Origin: Rosario Entre Rios growing region, Bolivia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A quiet but deeply rich coffee. Fresh-cut cedar and semi-sweet chocolate carry from the husky aroma through pungently sweet cup to an impressively long, resonant finish.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2004 Bolivia Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed fourth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 89-plus from an international jury. Produced from trees of the heirloom Typica variety of arabica by farmer Eusebio Marca Cruz. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: A distinguished competition coffee that should please those who prefer the deep and hearty to the high-toned and delicate.


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.
