Review Date: Oct 2011

Price: $14.95/12 ounces

Intense aroma and flavor, with spicy, jasmine-like flowers, zesty lime and a hint of sweet cocoa. Crisply delicate acidity; smooth, silky mouthfeel. Flavor carries deep into a tart, rather bittersweet finish.

Review Date: Aug 2011

Price: $64.95/10 ounces

Bright, high-toned complexity: sweet, rose-like floral notes, milk chocolate, lemony cherry, a hint of pungent fir. Rich, zesty acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is deep and long with echoes of flowers and chocolate.

Review Date: Aug 2011

Price: $12.95/12 ounces

Evaluated as espresso. Delicate, floral- and caramel-toned aroma. In the small cup the caramel drops back and a pungent, lemony cedar dominates, complicated by continuing floral top notes. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Caramel returns with the flowers in the finish. Almost loses its way in two parts milk, but the caramel turns pleasantly chocolaty and the cedar contributes some authority.

Review Date: Aug 2011

Price: $12.95/12 ounces

Evaluated as espresso. Great depth and complex range in aroma and flavor: crisp walnut and dark chocolate, cedary anise, lemon and floral top notes. Heavy, satiny mouthfeel; long, rich, sweetly resonant finish. Surprisingly delicate in two parts milk, but ultimately a sweet but complex chocolate, toffee- and mint-toned, impresses.

Review Date: Jul 2011

Price: $19.95/12 ounces

Rich, deep, pungently sweet in aroma and cup: orange, dark chocolate, raisin, a luxurious hint of citrus blossom. Quiet, round acidity; full mouthfeel. Flavor fades in the short finish but recovers and extends impressively in the long.

Review Date: Jul 2011

Price: $16.95/12 ounces

Sweet-toned, headily complex aroma: honey, nut, milk chocolate, flowers, orange. In the cup rich, wine-like acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Under the influence of the acidity the aromatics turn tarter, deeper and perhaps simpler. Clean, resonant finish.

Review Date: May 2011

Price: $18.95/12 ounces

A relatively light roast develops this pure high-grown coffee’s giddy natural sweetness, delicately bright acidity and tart fruit notes. Light, silky mouthfeel. The tart fruit softens toward chocolate in the finish.

Review Date: May 2011

Price: $13.95/12 ounces

Sweetly and richly pungent: cedar, grapefruit, freshly turned earth in aroma and cup. Rich, roundly bright acidity; medium body; silky mouthfeel. The citrus turns orangy in a fine, flavor-saturated finish.

Review Date: Apr 2011

Price: $14.95/12 ounces

Evaluated as espresso. Soft, balanced aroma highlighting hints of caramel, aromatic wood and anise. More intensity in the cup with a distinct orange note complimenting the sweet anise-and-aromatic-wood tendencies. Two parts milk rounds and sweetens the intensity of the straight shot without muting its authority.

Review Date: Feb 2011

Price: $13.95/12 ounces

Deeply sweet aroma that combines notes of fresh tobacco and aromatic wood with dried apricot-like fruit and caramel. In the cup brightly fruit-toned acidity and gentle balance, with continued apricot and orangy citrus notes. Flavors carry softly and sweetly into the finish.

Review Date: Feb 2011

Price: $14.95/12 ounces

Pungent aroma, dark chocolate complicated by an orange-like citrus. Bright-toned acidity and lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor mirrors the aroma, becoming more intense in the cup and persisting distinctly into the finish with an added minty note.

Review Date: Jan 2011

Price: $19.95/10 ounces

A delicately bright-toned coffee, with sweet citrus and floral notes in aroma and cup. As the cup cools a hint of black currant emerges and sweetly persists in the long, toasty finish. Silky mouthfeel.

Review Date: Jan 2011

Price: $18.95/12 ounces

Rich, deep, grapy sweetness in aroma and cup, with distinct dark chocolate and cedar notes. Rich, rounded acidity, syrupy mouthfeel. Long, deep finish.

Review Date: Dec 2010

Price: $17.95/12 ounces

Aromatically complex and intense, highlighting notes of sandalwood, freshly fallen leaves, grapefruit and dried berry. Flavors round in the cup with grapefruit and aromatic wood dominating. Deep, fruit-toned sweetness lasts long into the flavor-saturated finish.

Review Date: Dec 2010

Price: $43.95/10 ounces

Balanced, complete, yet wildly distinctive. Very sweet-toned aroma: table grape, spicy nut, flowers. All carry into the cup, where a crisp cocoa (dry, nut-toned chocolate) contributes complication and depth. Tart but softly fruit-toned acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Nut and cocoa in particular carry into the finish.

Review Date: Nov 2010

Price: $34.95/10 oz.

Dry berry or black currant, flowers, hints of lemon and aromatic wood in the aroma. All carry into a luxuriously sweet cup, with the lemon note dominating. Rich, complexly fruit-toned acidity, silky to lightly syrupy mouthfeel, clean, gently lemon-toned finish.

Review Date: Oct 2010

Price: $19.95/12 oz.

Intensely bright with rich, dominating acidity. Pungent nut, dark chocolate, ripe tomato and flowers in the aroma, with the tomato note turning lemony in the cup and a hint of the admired black currant note emerging. Syrupy mouthfeel. The acidity brings a mild astringent edge to the finish, but one pleasingly enveloped in richness.

Review Date: Aug 2010

Price: $43.95/10 oz.

Juicy and sweet both in aroma and cup: pungent notes of citrus and cocoa with soft hints of lavender flowers and honey. Assertive but smooth acidity and a lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Clean finish: gentle cocoa character complicated by continuing fruit and floral hints.

Review Date: Aug 2010

Price: $12.95/12 oz.

Aromatically intense and complex, combining elements of sweet nut, earth-toned chocolate and rich fruit. Soft, silky mouthfeel. Flavors simplify in the finish, with the fruit turning tart and, perhaps for some palates, slightly sharp.

Review Date: Jul 2010

Price: $12.95/12 oz.

Rich and balanced in the aroma, with ripe fruit-like sweetness that hints at berry. In the cup penetrating acidity, delicate mouthfeel, and tangerine, honey and floral notes with hints of cocoa and aromatic wood. The sweet fruit saturates the finish.
