    Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Breakfast Blend

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 2006
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Superb aroma: "sultry and exotic" for co-cupper Danny O'Neill; "richly complex" for Ken, with "milk chocolate, sweet tomato, apricot and cedar" notes. Both Danny (87) and Ken (88) admired the quiet complexity and balance of the cup; "gently bittersweet and chocolaty" for Ken, "dark and smoky" for Danny. Both noted a slight hardening of the cup as it cooled.

Notes: Alterra is a quality-oriented small-batch wholesale and retail roaster with a small chain of cafe locations in Milwaukee and environs. Visit or call 414-273-3747 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a slightly roasty, richly rounded style of breakfast cup.


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.
