Kaffe Magnum Opus
|Roaster Location:||Millville, New Jersey|
|Coffee Origin:||Southern India|
|Review Date:||July 2004|
Sweet, midtoned, and intensely fragrant with an odd but pleasingly complex of sweet citrus (orange and Meyer lemon?) and fresh-cut cedar. This striking aromatic combination hints at a sort of herb-toned chocolate toward the rich but slightly heavy, bittersweet finish.
Mysore is a traditional market name for wet-processed Arabica coffee from southern India. Kaffý Magnum Opus is a roaster, wholesaler and Internet retailer of quality specialty coffee. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Sensory adventurers. The intense citrus-in-cedar fragrance displayed by this coffee strikes me as one persuasive coffee analogy for the color and drama of India.
