Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: March 2002
Origin: Not Disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Cloyingly sweet and sharply musty - imagine the taste of mildewed nuts left sitting in a damp basement closet for a few weeks. The musty tones hint at cocoa but don't come through.

Notes: Sold roast and ground in a 11.5-ounce valve bag; 27 cents per ounce. Call 1-800-432-6333 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those curious about the impact of cheap Vietnamese mass-processed robusta coffees. (See The Robusta Fuss.)


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.
