Dominican Republic – Green
|Roaster Location:||Dominican Republic|
|Review Date:||July 1998|
I found this coffee quite impressive when hot, with the sort of resonant dimension and long, gradually sweetening development I admire. However, for me the profile turned a bit grassy and hard as it cooled. The rest of the panel didn't have much to say about this coffee one way or the other. A few complaints surfaced suggesting roughness or hardness; one panelist reported "good intensity/balance, [though] not enough intensity for my taste." It would appear that a lack of character rather than taint or weakness doomed this coffee to a relatively low rating.
Coffee lacked character, beginning hot with a resonant dimension and long sweetening development, but turned grassy and hard as it cooled. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Grown at 4,000- to 4,500-foot elevations.
