  • Puerto Rico Clou du Mont, 2001-02 Crop

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: March 2003
Origin: South-central Puerto Rico. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Hugely rich, big-bodied, low-toned. Roundly full apricot and peach notes in both aroma and cup. A slight hint of mustiness shadows aroma and finish, but the cup is grandly clean.

Notes: Clou du Mont is a revived Puerto Rican specialty coffee marketed on a wine model. This coffee is from the last year's Clou du Mont crop. Based my cupping of green samples the new crop should be a bit better than this already rather impressive coffee. Dallis Bros. is a family owned business that is both wholesale roaster and importer of fine specialty coffee, and has long occupied a leadership position in the specialty industry.

Who Should Drink It: For many palates the hint of mustiness will add a pleasing roughness to this fine, full-throated version of the classic Caribbean cup.


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.
