  • Brazil Vista Alegre

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: March 2009
Origin: Cerrado growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweetly pungent in the aroma: cedar, hints of dark chocolate and raisiny fruit. In the cup smooth mouthfeel but a little lean; richly bittersweet; continued hints of a rather dry dark chocolate and raisins. The flavor prevails over a mild astringency in the finish.

Notes: Processed by the traditional Brazilian natural or dry method, meaning the coffee was dried with both skin and fruit still adhering to the bean. Henry's House of Coffee is a family-run business that has been roasting coffee in San Francisco's Sunset district since 1965. Visit or call 800-578-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A dry, chocolaty darker-roasted Brazil.


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.
