A startlingly distinctive coffee: richly fruity with almost symphonic aromatics and pronounced but sweet acidity. "Best blend in the world!" exclaims the nominating reader. "One of the few blends that has distinctive regional characteristics -- in this case a lighter roast highlights and protects a wonderfully lively flavor."
A blend of coffees from East Africa. Allegro is one of the country's leading and most sophisticated sellers of premium single origin coffees, committed to giving equal value to intrinsic coffee character and to environmental and social issues in its coffee sourcing. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Breakfasting hedonists. By current American standards this is a very light-roasted cup, but a lavishly sweet one with only a dash of astringency in the finish.
