Roast: NA Review Date: March 2000
Origin: Sumatra, probably one of the Mandheling growing regions near Lake Toba. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A sweet, high-toned coffee with a distinct musty or mildewy edge. The mustiness imparts a spicy, cocoa-like twist to the pruny fruit notes.

Notes: A sweet, high-toned coffee with a distinct musty or mildewy Sumatra edge. Decaffeinated by the solvent-free Swiss Water Process. Oasis Coffee is a wholesale roaster founded in 1987. San Alto is its premium specialty coffee line.

Who Should Drink It: Those who love musty Sumatras, the kind that taste like the back corner of damp closets. (You know who you are.) The sweetness of this coffee turns the mustiness almost elegant.

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.
