Organic French Roast (Mexico) by Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: August 2003
Origin: Southern Mexico Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Both Ken and co-taster Willem Boot found chocolate notes running through aroma and small cup: "deep-toned chocolate" for Willem, "caramel, chocolate" for Ken. Both, however, complained about a slight sharpness in the finish, though Willem found it "minty." Good presence in milk: "Spicy and sweet" for Willem, "smoky, fruity and rich" for Ken. Willem rating 87, Ken 87.

Notes: Certified organically grown. Batdorf & Bronson is a leading wholesale artisan specialty roaster with roasting locations in both Olympia, Washington and Atlanta, Georgia. Visit or call 800-955-5282 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: A substantial, complexly aromatic presence in milk should make this Mexico a good choice for both short and tall with-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.
