Barrington Coffee Roasting Co.
Yauco Selecto AA, 2002-03 Crop
|Roaster Location:||Great Barrington, Maine|
|Coffee Origin:||Southwestern Puerto Rico.|
|Review Date:||March 2003|
Blind Assessment: Rich but subdued, with a stealthy, understated sweetness. Some aromatic intrigue suggests apples and spice. The restrained aroma and rather flat finish compromises an otherwise roundly expansive Caribbean cup.
Notes: Yauco Selecto is one of two Puerto Rico coffees currently exported outside the island. Barrington Coffee is a small, quality-oriented wholesale specialty roaster emphasizing freshness in roast. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who crave richness without drama.
