Ecuador Fair-Trade Organic
|Roaster Location:||Ventura, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Loja Province, Ecuador.|
|Review Date:||March 2004|
Blind Assessment: A vastly rich, balanced medium-dark roast, distinctly nuanced from nose to finish with a deep, bittersweet, raisin-toned chocolate. As is often the case with deeply fruit-toned coffees, some of the lush richness may derive from a fortuitous edge of sweet ferment.
Notes: Certified organically grown at an elevation of around 6,000 feet or 1,800 meters. Moore Coffee is a small retail and wholesale roaster that also offers a range of other fancy foods and beverages through its website. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who fingers always drift past the light chocolates to the dark.
