  • Organic Brazil Serra Do Bone

Roast: Medium Review Date: June 2008
Origin: Matas de Minas growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Fine straight-shot espresso. Rich in the aroma with a delicately pungent note Ken (91) called cedar and co-taster Heather Perry (90) spice. In the small cup dense and syrupy in mouthfeel with dark chocolate and continued spice and orangey cedar notes. Long, resonantly flavor-saturated finish. Loses some power and complexity, though it remains pleasantly drinkable and the orangey/spicy chocolate persists.

Notes: Certified organically grown. From an environmentally progressive farm in the traditional Matas de Minas growing region. A coffee from this farm was a fourth-place finisher in the 2006 Brazil Cup of Excellence competition. La Mill is a resolutely high-end retail and wholesale roaster located in the Los Angeles area.

Who Should Drink It: Classic, comfortable straight-shot espresso, not complex, perhaps, but complete.


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.
