  • Cafe Campesino

    Americus, Georgia
  • Ethiopia Limu Fair-Trade

Roast: Dark Review Date: September 2002
Origin: Limu growing region, west-central Ethiopia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A rather aggressive roast contributes distinct charred notes, but they are richly charred notes, with a leathery twist and a tickle of dry fruit. The astringent finish is pleasantly complicated by dry chocolate.

Notes: Certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning small-holding farmers have been paid an economically sustainable price for this coffee. Cafe Campesino is a coffee roasting company that also is a leading member of Cooperative Coffees, an innovative green-coffee-buying cooperative of small American roasters that specializes in importing coffees from their counterpart cooperatives in growing countries.

Who Should Drink It: The coffee's distinction is largely lost in the roast, but the roast itself provides the mildly burned, bittersweet cup with a hint of complication that many coffee drinkers enjoy.


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.
