Blind Assessment: The term "balanced" dominated both Ken and co-taster Willem Boot's notes. The body was balanced and smooth for Ken, balanced and buttery for Willem; both found the presence in milk balanced and complex. Ken admired the small cup's "elegant dry fruit" while Willem praised its "lively, citrus" character. Willem 87, Ken 90.

Notes: Produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of arabica in the traditional Sul de Minas growing region. The Supreme Bean is a Los Angeles-area wholesale roaster specializing in high-end roasted-to-order espresso blends and single origins. Visit or call 888-288-5282 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who value elegant, high-toned balance in straight shots and short milk drinks.


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.
