  • Organic Medium Roast

Roast: Medium Review Date: January 2008

Blind Assessment: Sweet, crisp, simple with walnut and minty dark chocolate notes in the aroma that consolidate as a distinct, pleasing cocoa in the quietly balanced cup. The long, rich, cocoa-toned finish is particularly impressive.

Notes: This Brazilian coffee is certified organically grown. At Sam's Club in Northern California, $12.82 per 40-ounce bag whole-bean, or 32 cents per ounce.

Who Should Drink It: An easy-going breakfast cup: sweet, gentle, cocoa-toned, ingratiating.


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.
