Roast: NA Review Date: August 2003
Origin: Cachoeira Farm, South America, Southern Minas Gerais State, Brazil Price: $12.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Both Ken and co-taster Willem Boot remarked on a medium but smooth, buttery body. Aromatics and flavor were "floral and slightly malty/musty, toasty and crisp" (Ken), "light chocolate & elegant, spicy-smoky" (Willem). "Pleasant[ly] caramel" in milk for Willem, "balanced, sweet yet crisp" for Ken. Willem 90, Ken 88.

Notes: A "natural" or dry-processed coffee from Fazenda Cachoeira, a very old coffee farm now being converted to organic practice by idealistic proprietors Mirian Monteiro de Aguliar and her husband Rogerio Daros. Flying Goat Coffee is a boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit or call 800-675-3599 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Admirers of the classic style of Brazilian espresso, balanced, smooth, with a slight musty note that turns spicy and chocolate-like under the impact of espresso roast and brewing.


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.
