Blind Assessment: "Clean, monolithic," one cupper wrote. "OK but same old same," wrote another. One of four coffees in the cupping for which no faults whatsoever were cited; on the other hand, this carefully prepared coffee elicited only mild praise. The acidity was predictably characterized as "soft" (five of ten reviewers). Words like sweet and caramelly popped up occasionally. Only one reviewer actually effused: "chocolaty and sweet; nutty flavor."

Notes: Gently monolithic, clean and soft, but "same old, same old." Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Information on processing method for this coffee was confusing. Apparently a blend of coffees processed by the dry and washed methods.

Who Should Drink It: Gently monolithic.


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.
