Roast: Dark Review Date: May 1999
Origin: Peru Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A coffee that rewards deliberation. The sweet nut tones that are the glory of many softer Latin-America coffees run luxuriantly through the profile from aroma to finish, taking on a distinct chocolate cast in the cup. A coffee whose richness reads more as resonance than heaviness.

Notes: In this dark-roasted decaf, sweet nut tones run luxuriantly through the profile from aroma to finish, taking on a distinct chocolate cast in the cup. Decaffeinated by a variation of the direct CO2 method. The CO2 replaces the caffeine in the green beans. One of Counter Culture's line of Sanctuary shade-grown coffees, this coffee is produced by a cooperative of peasant farmers.

Who Should Drink It: Those willing to slow down (the absence of caffeine should help) and let the sweetness come to them.

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.
