Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Sul de Minas growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet, low-key, gentle. Displays muted musty/mildew tones that, combined with the essential sweetness of the coffee, read agreeably as malt or dry spice.

Notes: This coffee, from the classic Brazilian growing region of south Minas Gerais, is a natural dry-processed coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the coffee fruit rather than after removal of the fruit, as in the wet process. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: Should please acidity-avoiders with its subtle, malty sweetness.


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.
