Organic Mexican La Trinidad
|Roaster Location:||Thornton, Colorado|
|Coffee Origin:||Oaxaca State, Mexico|
|Review Date:||December 2004|
Blind Assessment: In the aroma richly low-toned: cedar, sweet spice, with a hint of milk chocolate. In the cup the acidity is muted, the flavor sweet with a balancing touch of bitterness, while the milk chocolate blooms opulently. The chocolate persists in the resonant finish.
Notes: From the long-established La Trinidad cooperative of small-holding growers. Allegro has a long and honorable history of support of this and other cooperative coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Although its simplicity argued against a rating higher than 88, coffee drinkers who enjoy a low-key, comfortable, elegantly chocolate-toned cup will enjoy this selection.
