Blind Assessment: A classic Latin-American cup, dominated by an austere, powerful, full-throated acidity. The big, acidy profile is both impressive and monolithic, complicated only by barely felt floral tones, a sort of deeply held essence of flowers.

Notes: A classic Latin-American cup, dominated by a powerful acidity with deeply held essence of flowers. Bold, simple, arresting. Barnie's, a many-stored retailer founded in 1980, donates $1 of every pound of this coffee sold to Habitat for Humanity.

Who Should Drink It: A classicist's drip coffee: bold, simple, arresting.


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.
