Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: December 2002
Origin: East Africa Price: $11.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: A startlingly distinctive coffee: richly fruity with almost symphonic aromatics and pronounced but sweet acidity. "Best blend in the world!" exclaims the nominating reader. "One of the few blends that has distinctive regional characteristics -- in this case a lighter roast highlights and protects a wonderfully lively flavor."

Notes: A blend of coffees from East Africa. Allegro is one of the country's leading and most sophisticated sellers of premium single origin coffees, committed to giving equal value to intrinsic coffee character and to environmental and social issues in its coffee sourcing.

Who Should Drink It: Breakfasting hedonists. By current American standards this is a very light- roasted cup, but a lavishly sweet one with only a dash of astringency in the finish.


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.
