|Review Date:||October 2006|
Blind Assessment: A gently pungent complex of tart berry and semi-sweet chocolate runs through the small cup with brisk authority from aroma to finish. The berry and chocolate notes blossom beautifully in milk, softening and rounding without losing energy or character.
Notes: All coffees in this blend are certified organically grown. Sunshine Organic also describes this coffee as "Fairly Traded," a home-grown certification that Sunshine awards itself for buying organic coffees that have been "sold by Fair-Trade certified cooperatives." Sunshine Organic Coffee Roasters is a small-batch, organics-only roaster located in northern California's Sonoma Valley. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Superb organic espresso for cappuccino and short milk drinks.
