Roast: Medium Review Date: December 2001
Origin: Oaxaca State, southern Mexico Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Deep-toned roasty sweetness in the aroma; in the cup low-toned, rich yet crisp, laced with sweetly roasty nuance: nuts, dried fruit, and a suggestion of round, milky chocolate in the finish.

Notes: From La Trinidad, a cooperative of subsistence farmers who grow a particularly well-processed, high-grown coffee from trees of the traditional typical variety of Arabica. Allegro, whose coffees appear prominently in the Whole Foods market chain, offers one of the world's finest lines of single-origin, documented estate coffees.

Who Should Drink It: A richly low-key coffee that is round and sweet enough to drink black at any time, including after dinner.


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.
