Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2009
Origin: Guatemala; Ethiopia: Mexico Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Not particularly refined, but balanced and robust, especially when hot. Rich, pungently roasty aroma: roasted nut, aromatic wood, cherryish dark chocolate. Aromatic wood and an attractive dry, nutty chocolate dominate in the cup. Simple but very rich finish.

Notes: Available in a 16-ounce valve bag at $12.95. Badbeard's Microroastery is a Portland, Oregon-based small-batch roaster focused on quality and freshness. Badbeard's encourages its customers to "make great coffee at home." Visit or call 503-232-7327 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: For those who buy by metaphor, a genuinely wild, outlawish coffee. For those who track through coffee types and origins, an excellent example of a coffee that uses a moderately dark roast to develop the rough beauty of what are probably one or two dry-processed or natural components.


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.
