Organic Aztec Dark by Caffe Ibis Review |

    Logan, Utah
  • Organic Aztec Dark

Roast: Dark Review Date: December 2001
Origin: Mexico Price: NA

Blind Assessment: In the nose, brightly sweet grapefruit tones animate a vaguely spicy roastiness. In the cup the aggressive roastiness turns bitter and slightly charred, lifted only by a shadow sweetness and a memory of citrus. Substantial body.

Notes: This coffee is "triple certified," meaning it is certified organically grown, fair-traded, and Smithsonian Institution certified "Bird Friendly." Caffe Ibis is a long-established, pioneering small-batch specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to social, economic, and environmental responsibility. Located at the edge of the Wasatch Range of mountains, its slogan is "Mountain Grown, Mountain Roasted."

Who Should Drink It: Full body and authoritative bitterness should help this coffee maintain presence in almost any quantity of milk and sweetener.


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.
