Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: June 1999
Origin: Various Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Strikingly sweet, with virtually no dark-roast bitterness. The sweetness is agreeably complicated by tart berryish or citrusy tones, but overall the profile seems a bit restrained, a touch limited in range and dimension.

Notes: Strikingly sweet, with virtually no dark-roast bitterness. Over the years this has been one of my favorite dark-roast blends. It remains impressive this time around, though perhaps less authoritative than in cuppings past.

Who Should Drink It: Admirers of sweetness without sentiment.


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.
