  • Clasico del Otono

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: December 2002
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Reader Peter Lynagh nominated this coffee, rating it a 90 to 94. He describes it as "sweet, bold, fruit-toned, yet perfectly balanced and round," as well as "paradoxical." Paradoxical perhaps because it maintains the fruity brightness of medium-roasted coffees while avoiding aggressively dry or acidy notes. I would agree with all of the above, though I wish that my sample had not displayed a slight, muted bitterness.

Notes: Mozart's apparently brings some Austrian coffee tradition to Texas. Certainly the two samples Mozart's submitted for the December 2002 cupping could be taken as expressing the Viennese tradition of sweet coffees and moderate roasting Visit or call 512-477-2900 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a well-crafted blend that hits the sweet spot in roast style between medium and dark.


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.
