Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: March 1997
Origin: Zimbabwe Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The only Zimbabwe in the cupping. Lighter and drier than the best Kenya, with less dimension in the cup and a somewhat more attenuated finish. The pleasure is in the superb top of this coffee, both aroma and acidity levitating with dry fruit and cinnamon tones.

Notes: This coffee from Zimbabwe has a superb top, both the aroma and acidity levitating with dry fruit and cinnamon tones. Grade 053

Who Should Drink It: Aficionados looking for variety in their East-African in-the-cup adventures. People who enjoy the Kenya profile but find the Kenya acidity too dramatic.

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.
