Roast: Dark Review Date: January 1999
Origin: Brazil Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Very sharp, carbony cup, with little richness or sweetness. Both aroma and body seem burned off the coffee by the rather aggressive roast. I also tried this coffee as espresso. In the demitasse it remained sharp, but softened and sweetened a bit in milk.

Notes: Very sharp, carbony cup, with little richness or sweetness. Both aroma and body are burned off by a rather aggressive roast. This could be used as an espresso, though it remains sharp. Bourbon is Latin America's classic heirloom coffee variety. Santos is not a region, but a market and grade name for coffees from one or more of the best growing regions in southern Brazil: South Minas or Cerrado in Minas Gerais State or Mogiana in Sao Pa

Who Should Drink It: Those who mistake carbon for intensity in coffee. Brazil's softness probably makes it a poor candidate for extreme dark roasting.

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.
