Roast: Medium Review Date: February 1997
Origin: Various Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The acidity doesn't immediately reveal itself in the deep, mouth-filling richness of this coffee, emerging most clearly in the powerful finish. A coffee that, in its understated complexity, seems considerably greater than its parts.

Notes: Understated complexity develops into a deep, mouth-filling richness.

Who Should Drink It: Another all-around winner for drip brewing. Should please just about everyone, but probably won't provoke much attention. This is a sophisticated-aunt coffee, the kind that should keep the generations from arguing after Thanksgiving dinner.


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.
