La Esperanza by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review | CoffeeReview.com
86
Roast: NA Review Date: September 2000
Origin: Lake Atitlan Basin, Guatemala; Oaxaca State, Mexico; Aceh Province, northern Sumatra, Indonesia. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Rich, grapy fruit lifts off pleasantly from a smoke-toned, rather sharply bitter base. Wonderful aspiration in this blend, but to my palate the bitterness contradicts rather than complements the luxury of the fruit.

Notes: Rich, grapy fruit lifts off pleasantly from a smoke-toned, rather sharply bitter base. A blend comprised entirely of certified organically grown and Fair-Trade Certified coffees. Green Mountain, founded in 1981, is one of America 's pioneer specialty coffee roasters and a leader in cause coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy paradox; in this case, smoky fruit.

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.
