Superstition Sunrise Brazil by Lost Dutchman Coffee Roasters Review |
  • Lost Dutchman Coffee Roasters

    Tempe, Arizona
  • Superstition Sunrise Brazil

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2008
Origin: Cerrado growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Quiet, balanced aroma with faint hints of cocoa, lemon, flowers, nut, cedar. This muted complexity resolves into a quite distinct and pleasing cocoa in the cup, supported by a soft acidity and a delicate, silky mouthfeel. Clean, straightforward cocoa-saturated finish.

Notes: Available at $9.95 per pound. Lost Dutchman is a small-batch artisan wholesale roasting company taking its name from the legend of the Lost Dutchman goldmine in Arizona's Superstition Mountains, which accounts for the rather idiosyncratic name given this single-origin coffee from the celebrated Daterra farms in Brazil. Visit or call 623-217-1304 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who avoid acidy intensity and enjoy subtle natural variations on a theme of chocolate.


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.
