La Flor del Cafe
|Review Date:||July 1997|
Blind Assessment: Most found this Antigua a bit underpowered, perhaps owing to its relatively light body (noted by almost everyone). Some found compensating virtues: chocolaty, spicy, nutty notes. Others praised a soft, sweet smoothness. Still others objected: "a bit lifeless"; "not so happening"; "thin"; and most Originsal, "straightlaced[!]". Only two found outright failings: a slight sourness. One delivered an inspired characterization of the subtle fragrance: "Dancing on fruity."
Notes: Light body with chocolaty, spicy and nutty notes. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee.
Who Should Drink It : At its best this coffee dances, though on thin ice.
