Omar's Organic Blend, Fair-Trade by Batdorf & Bronson Review |
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2006
Origin: Blend Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Gently pungent cedar and pear-toned fruit in the aroma. In the cup sweetly and richly acidy with a continued pungent edge that hints at chocolate. The long, robust-on-the-edge-of-rough finish suggests that the attractive pungency of the profile may in part be powered by a slight, felicitous mustiness in one of the blend's green coffees.

Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, the latter meaning the green beans were purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Batdorf & Bronson is a premium wholesale specialty roaster with a long and honorable commitment to quality and sound relationships with growers. Visit or call 800-955-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Environmental and social progressives who enjoy paradox: This coffee combines a classic sweet acidity with a crisp, roast-assisted pungency.


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.
