Blind Assessment: Lush, sweetly overripe Harrar fruit notes are shadowed by salty and bitter tones. Dry chocolate in the finish.

Notes: Harrar is one of the world's oldest and most traditional coffees, dry-processed and cleaned using the most simple of means. At its best it is one of the world's finest coffees, though its sweetly voluptuous fruit tones may turn composty and rather bitter. Allegro is one of the country's leading and most sophisticated sellers of premium single origin coffees, committed to giving equal value to intrinsic coffee character and environmental and social issues in its coffee sourcing.

Who Should Drink It: Coffee-with-milk drinkers, who will find that dairy develops the Harrar fruit tones while rounding and sweetening the cup's underlying bitterness.


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.
