Blind Assessment: Ken (rating 81) reports: "Full-bodied, rather rich, but simple, with little nuance and a hint of bagginess." Kevin (rating 82): "Nice body, but the quakery appearance of the beans is reflected in a rather dull cup. Roasted at or past its limit given the modest inherent acidity of the green coffee."

Notes: Certified organically grown and Bird Friendly. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster whose motto is "without the love, it's just coffee." Visit or call 888-678-JAVA for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a heavy bodied, rich but muted cup.


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.
