Paradise Roasters Organic Ethiopia: Coffee Review
Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2013
Origin: Sidamo (also Sidama) growing region, southern Ethiopia. Price: $14.95/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Gently exotic, roundly bright. Butter, pungent cedar, dark chocolate, ripe tangerine, a hint of flowers in aroma and cup. Balanced, juicy acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a rich though drying finish.

Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot coffees and espressos from Hawaii and other premier coffee growing regions. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit or call 763-433-0626 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Fine range of sensation in a brisk but juicy cup.


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.
