Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet, delicately fruit-toned. Strawberry, violet, cacao nib, cashew butter, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Balanced structure (sweet, tart, bitter) with vibrant acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Graceful, lingering finish that carries over all the flavor and aroma notes from the cup, particularly strawberry, violet and cedar.


Produced by Jose Maria de Oliveira in the Cerrado growing region of Minas Gerais State in southeastern Brazil. This is a dry-processed or “natural” coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Located in southwestern Colorado, Durango Coffee lays claim to a rich coffee history that dates to 1986. Its motto is “Tough Town, Great Coffee.” Visit www.durangocoffee.com or call 800-748-2275 for more information.


The Bottom Line: A beautiful berry-centric natural-processed coffee from Brazil, with especially high-toned acidity and deep cocoa notes throughout.
