Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: January 2006
Origin: Cerrado growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil Price: NA

Blind Assessment: I found myself using the term "delicate" several times in describing this coffee: delicate coffee fruit tones in the aroma, delicate but smooth mouthfeel, and a delicately complex flavor: nuts, dried fruit (raisins perhaps) with hints of wine and semi-sweet chocolate. Roaster Bob Baker nominated this coffee, citing its "sweet, honey laden cup."

Notes: Daterra is a large, technically sophisticated producer of extremely refined coffees in Brazil's relatively recently developed Cerrado growing region, as well as in the classic Mogiana growing region. White Rock Coffee is a micro-roaster and cafe-restaurant located in Northeast Dallas. Visit or call 214-341-4774 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy coffee, but find most medium-roasted coffee too acidy and dark-roasted too bitter.


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.
