|Roaster Location:||Whitefish, Montana|
|Review Date:||November 1998|
Blind Assessment: Alive with dry nuance and surprise: pruny fruit, crisp chocolate, sweetening slightly toward the finish. As the cup cools the chocolate sharpens a bit toward tobacco and herb. Long, richly dry aftertaste.
Notes: A cigarish sort of coffee: alive with dry nuance but luxurious with pruny fruit and crisp chocolate, and a surprise touch of dessert-like nuance. Produced by the Gajo de Toro Grower Association, a farmers' cooperative. This coffee is both certified organic and officially fair-traded (purchased from the farmer at a guaranteed price fixed by an international fair-trade association). Montana Coffee T
Who Should Drink It: A cigarish sort of coffee: dry but luxurious, with a touch of dessert-like nuance.
