Blind Assessment: Co-cupper Danny O'Neill read "rich chocolaty pudding" in the superb aroma. Ken's reading was more conventional though just as positive: flowers, oranges, chocolate, cherry. Both admired the complex fruity character of the cup: "bouquet of fruity melon and apple" for Danny (88); "tart but rich cherry, hints of plum and orange" for Ken (91). "Finishes clean with lingering hints of late summer" (Danny).

Notes: Madrugada means early dawn in Spanish. Flying Goat Coffee is a leading boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit or call 800-675-3599 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer romantic, albeit early, breakfasts.


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.
