|Roaster Location:||Ozone Park, NY|
|Review Date:||January 1999|
Blind Assessment: An impressive tribute to the tactile dimension of taste: the body is smooth, buttery, alive yet full. The profile is sweet and deeply dimensioned with a pleasantly spicy tickle at its heart, but remains rather limited in range. The aftertaste reveals the merest hint of hardness.
Notes: A quintessentially full, sweet cup which is smooth, buttery, alive yet full. Profile is sweet and deeply dimensioned, though rather limited in range. Blue de Brasil is grown on two estates at about 3,000 feet. Organic certification is currently provided by two agencies, a Brazilian and a Swiss. The coffee is dry-processed in the traditional Brazil manner. Dallis Bros. is a family owned business that is both wholesale roaster and importer of fine specialty coffee, and has long occupied a leadership position in the specialty industry.
