Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Big in every respect: in its richly powerful acidity, in body, in general statement. No floral innuendoes or fruity digressions here: This coffee is as abstractly dry, robust and mouthfilling as a good cabernet.

Notes: Big in every respect: in its richly powerful acidity, in body, in general statement. Decaffeinated by the European process using the solvent methylene chloride. Oasis Coffee is a wholesale roaster founded in 1987. San Alto is its premium specialty coffee line.

Who Should Drink It: An almost overpowering coffee in the classic American mode. Put on a plaid flannel shirt and drink it out of the heaviest mug on the shelf. Dark-roast drinkers and latte bibbers steer clear. The idea of a coffee this robust without caffeine seems a little odd, like a cross between a Harley and a Vespa.

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.
