Blind Assessment: Although the overall rating earned by this coffee was the same as the rating for the preceding Larin pacamara, the comments were less effusive. No exclamation points, and the poker-faced praise-word "nice" came up twice: "nice berry (raspberry) tang"; "sweet nice but fuzzy." In the comments the body of this coffee was admired more consistently than any other in the cupping: "full"; "buttery." The absence of off-notes, the sweetly fruity acidity, and the fullish body together seem to have lifted this coffee to the top of the cupping.

Notes: Full and buttery body, with sweetly fruity acidity with a nice raspberry tang. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Los Ausoles is a cooperative made up of larger farms; Tizapa apparently is one of the member farms. Pacamara is a botanical variety or cultivar which is a hybrid of caturra and the large-beaned maragogipe varieties.

Who Should Drink It: Some substance to the sweetness.


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.
