|Review Date:||November 2009|
Fruit and aromatic wood in the aroma, complicated by a hint of cocoa. Bright yet balanced in the cup with a lightly syrupy body, a distinct flavor note suggesting fresh-cut fir, a hint of grapefruit and a musty note that reads convincingly as fresh earth. Long, dry, slightly tight finish.
Grown by members of the Gayoland Cooperative, this coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit
