|Review Date:||March 2010|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly rounded aroma with hints of flowers, chocolate, nut. In the cup a low-toned, subdued acidity, medium body, continued sweet chocolate and nut notes, with a hint of malty mustiness. Clean, simple finish with some carryover of the chocolate nuance.
Notes: Clive Coffee is a small roasting company based in Portland that is "completely devoted to fresh, beautiful coffee." This coffee was supplied by EcoCafe Haiti, a newly formed coffee cultivation and processing organization aimed at promoting economic self-sufficiency in rural Haiti. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A Haitian coffee with an admirable cause and a characteristically Haitian chocolate-toned, low-acid cup.
