Origin: Brazil, Brasil, South American Price: NA
Bright and crisp but delicately sweet. An unusual but quite appealing combination of chocolate and grapefruit tones makes its invigorating, seductive presence felt from nose to finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Price: NA
An exquisitely delicate coffee. Meltingly sweet and cocoa-toned in the nose, in the cup gently acidy and crisply fruity with cocoa and pear notes. The finish is pleasingly chocolate-toned, but slightly astringent.

Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Slight fermented, musty tones pleasingly complicate this sweet, rich, round- bodied Brazil, reading as leather and spice in the nose, and spice, fruit and chocolate in the cup. Just enough acidity to keep the cup lively.

Sweet and complex with grapefruit, lemon and cocoa in the nose. The grapefruit notes dominate and harden a bit in the pleasingly rich cup, turning slightly astringent in the finish.

Origin: Price: NA
Delicately acidy but slightly bitter cup displays a subtle but impressive array of aromatic and flavor notes: vanilla and fresh leather in the nose, dry chocolate, flowers, and lemon in the cup.

  • The Roasterie

    Kansas City, Missouri
  • Brazil Fazenda Lagoa Natural

Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Price: NA
Sweet, low-key, gentle. Displays muted musty/mildew tones that, combined with the essential sweetness of the coffee, read agreeably as malt or dry spice.

  • Alpen Sierra

    South Lake Tahoe, California
  • Brasil Vargem Grande

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Price: NA
The roast dominates an agreeably light-bodied, buoyant, juicily fruit- and floral-toned coffee, turning the pleasantly delicate acidity a touch bitter in the finish.

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Price: NA
A simple, solid, rather dense-hearted dark roast with pleasing balance of sweet and bitter tones but without much nuance: slight, cocoa-toned fruit in the cup and a hint of lemon in the rather astringent finish.
