Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: December 2001
Origin: Western Oaxaca State, Mexico Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The aroma is rich, deeply dimensioned, shot through with bracing grapefruit tones; the body smooth and full. The richly expressed grapefruit tones excite when the cup is hot, but turn a touch bitterish and sharp as it cools, particularly in the finish.

Notes: A shade-grown coffee from an association of small producers. Coffeemaria is a boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped.

Who Should Drink It: An interesting breakfast cup: rich and smooth but crisp with citrus notes. Drink it hot, before the bitterness sets in.


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.
