  • Brazil Poco Fundo Fair Trade

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: September 2007
Origin: Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A slight musty fruit ferment serendipitously complicates this richly low-key coffee, reading as cocoa and cedar-toned ripe orange in both aroma and cup. A very slight astringency smoothes out in the long, sweet finish.

Notes: Certified Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from the small-holding farmers of the Poco Fundo Cooperative at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Barefoot Coffee Roasters is an award-winning and widely recognized small-batch roasting company that describes itself as "a happy little cafe and roastery in the heart of Silicon Valley."

Who Should Drink It: Quietly spicy social idealists.


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.
