Primavera Coffee Gets 93 Score from Coffee Review

primavera-roaster.jpgDid you know there's a web site out there that rates coffee much like major wine magazines review wine? It's www.coffeereview.com, and last month they reviewed a coffee from Birmingham's own Primavera Coffee Roasters. Here's what they had to say about Primavera's Kenya AA Estate Gituto:

"Exquisitely lyric aroma: flowers, tart cherry, honey, a suggestion of milk chocolate. In the cup sweet acidity and continued meadowy flower and flowering grass notes, honey, tart cherry, all of which carry into a delicate but ringing finish."

The rating was 93 on a 100-point scale. Read the complete review here

According to its home page, "in 1997, the Coffee Review began conducting blind, expert cuppings of coffees and reported the findings in a ground-breaking format: 100-point reviews, like those that exist in the wine industry. Our goal, then and now, is to entertain and educate coffee drinkers, the coffee trade, and food service professionals with a credible and easy-to-use coffee guide based on objective reviews from some of the most experienced individuals in the specialty coffee industry."

Now if they can write about coffee like wine, here's an idea from Primava's Havilah: Why not offer an after-dinner "coffee menu" at a fine restaurant with several of Primavera's single-source coffees, suggesting pairings with different types of dessert? How about it, any restaurant owners out there?

That type of pairing would be my dream come true.
