Zimbabwe – Green
|Review Date:||March 1999|
Blind Assessment: This coffee provoked an unenviable list of drab adjectives: muddy (the favorite), grassy, neutral, ashy, rubber-like. Four panelists labeled the aftertaste "baggy," a term describing a flat, ropey sensation that usually indicates faulty conditioning or storage. Whatever its origin, the defect here overpowers the coffee.
Notes: This coffee performed poorly in the review, eliciting adjectives such as muddy, grassy, baggy, ashy, and rubber-like. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. NA
