|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||San Juan del Rio Coco, northern Nicaragua|
|Review Date:||September 2007|
Blind Assessment: A balanced, quietly complete cup. Simple but harmonious aroma: chocolate-toned with a hint of cedar. In the cup gently rich acidity, smooth mouthfeel, muted night flowers, milk chocolate, tart cherry. Resonant finish.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from the small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Batdorf & Bronson is a leading wholesale quality-oriented specialty roaster that has developed close relationships with many of its coffee suppliers, including the 15th de Septiembre Cooperative that produced this impeccably processed coffee.

Who Should Drink It : Quietly assured social idealists.
