Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Tolima, Colombia Price: $18.95/14.08oz
Exhilaratingly intense but roundly sweet-toned aroma: black cherry, flowers, milk chocolate, with an underlying cedar-toned crispness. Sweet flowers and cherry dominate in the cup with an almost symphonic richness of tone. Medium bodied but silky mouthfeel. The floral notes linger into the farthest reaches of the finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Huila, Colombia Price: $12.95/12oz
Quietly intense aroma, cedar and distinct butterscotch notes. Plushly heavy body in the sweet, deep-toned cup, with almost port-like red wine tones and rich hints of semi-sweet chocolate and roses anchored on a flinty, almost mineral-like base.

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Cauca, Colombia Price: NA
Sweet-toned, quietly complex aroma: cherryish, chocolate-toned fruit with a hint of herby cedar. In the cup softly acidy and richly and exquisitely balanced, with the fruit taking on a distinct black cherry character. A coffee whose excellence ultimately lies in its suave authority and completeness.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Cauca, Colombia Price: NA
An aromatically rather simple coffee with a tremendous relaxed and almost voluptuous structure. In the aroma low-toned and round with hints of flowers and cherry-toned fruit. Softly acidy and sweetly and deeply rich in the cup. Sweet, almost sugary finish.

A classic cup: pure, simple, intense, refined. Sweet-toned but crisp aroma: tomato, cedar, cardamom, chocolate. Richly and sweetly acidy in the cup with the classic complex of flowers and fresh coffee fruit with rounding hints of chocolate.

  • Terroir Coffee

    Acton, Massachusetts
  • Colombia Tolima Cup of Excellence Presidential Award Winner El Placer

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Price: $16.95/12oz
Sweet-toned and alive with a dense, shifting complexity. Cedar, orange, distinct butterscotch, tomato, perhaps chocolate in the aroma. In the cup low-toned acidity and lightly syrupy in mouthfeel, with an almost sugary sweetness and tight-knit notes of butterscotch, caramel, honey, ripe but slightly tart orange. Rich and sweet in the short finish, though a slight hint of astringency surfaces in the long.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Huila, Colombia Price: $9.95/12oz
Sweetly tart aroma complicated by coffee fruit (think pie cherries) and hints of cedar and cocoa. The cup is dominated by a giddily sweet, buoyantly intense acidity with continued notes of fresh coffee fruit and flowers. Short but rich finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Huila, Colombia Price: $10.95/12oz
Pungent, buttery aroma with subtle but persistent floral notes. The cup is deep-toned and balanced, with syrupy body and continued floral top notes and buttery, chocolaty mid-notes. The elusive floral notes persist impressively in the long, rich finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Peru Price: NA
Rather thin aroma, with semi-sweet chocolate hints. In the cup the chocolate turns explicit, crisp and pleasantly cocoaish. The finish is surprisingly rich, with continued cocoa tones and a hint of flowers. The cup generally relaxes and plumps up as it cools.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Colombia Price: NA
Sweet-toned aroma with delicate floral-, cherry- and chocolate-toned fruit notes. In the cup more striking for its superb body and balanced structure than for its agreeable but limited nuance, a dry cherry-chocolate. The long, deep finish stays just on the rich side of astringent.
