Blind Assessment: Something was slightly off with this coffee. Two panelists mentioned ferment but I doubt it. One called the taint grassy; "slightly harsh & earthy" wrote another; I had it as "a touch of hard tobacco, herb." Whatever it was, it brought down the rating of this otherwise ingratiatingly sweet, rounded coffee with subtle grace notes variously described as chocolate, vanilla, and (the favorite) caramel.

Notes: An ingratiatingly sweet, rounded coffee with subtle grace notes of caramel, but something was slightly off -- perhaps grassy, harsh tobacco, herb. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Shade-grown at 2,500- to 4,000-foot elevations.

Who Should Drink It:


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.
