Café del Mundo
|Roaster Location:||Anchorage, Alaska|
|Review Date:||March 1997|
Blind Assessment: The only Zimbabwe in the cupping. Lighter and drier than the best Kenya, with less dimension in the cup and a somewhat more attenuated finish. The pleasure is in the superb top of this coffee, both aroma and acidity levitating with dry fruit and cinnamon tones.
Notes: This coffee from Zimbabwe has a superb top, both the aroma and acidity levitating with dry fruit and cinnamon tones. Grade 053
Who Should Drink It: Aficionados looking for variety in their East-African in-the-cup adventures. People who enjoy the Kenya profile but find the Kenya acidity too dramatic.
