Blind Assessment: Voluptuously classic coffee, perfectly poised between an almost sugary sweetness and a crisp, rich acidity. The mouthfeel is big and silky. The basic package is so complete that the hint of cherry- and tamarind-toned fruit comes as a bonus.
Notes: Produced under mature shade from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety by farmers who market their coffee under the name Cafe Altamira. Moore Coffee is a small retail and wholesale roaster that also offers a range of other fancy foods and beverages. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those considering moving from coffees that owe their sweetness and body to a darkish roast to coffees that pretty much start that way.
