    Roasted in Italy; distributed from Louisville, Colorado
  • Selection A Light Roast

Roast: Medium Review Date: August 2007
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Balanced, simple aroma with muted floral and temperate fruit notes. Rather lean bodied in the small cup, gently crisp, with cedar notes and a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. Surprisingly rich, clean finish. Thin in milk, though the chocolate notes fatten and sweeten.

Notes: Available in 1.1-pound valve bags. Amante Coffee is a Louisville, Colorado-based company that is building a chain of coffee shops using this and other blends roasted in Italy by the Ghigo Family in northern Italy. This sample appeared to have picked up mild hints of staleness on its way from Italy to Colorado to Coffee Review. Visit or call 303-449-5114 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A delicate espresso that may show better when fresher.


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.
