Origin: Huila, Colombia. Price: $9.50/8 ounces
Deep, balanced, intense. Nut, flowers, stonefruit, sweet cocoa in aroma and cup. Sweetly crisp acidity; lively, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The balance and completeness that characterizes the entire profile stretches into a long, resonant swoon of a finish.

Subtle, deep aromatics: black tea, boysenberry, cedar. Rich, slightly tart, acidity. Silky mouthfeel. The aromatics blossom in a refreshing and balanced cup with rounding and deepening suggestions of nectarine and apricot and a hint of flowers. A cocoa-like note emerges in the finish.

Roast: Medium Review Date: March 2012

Complex, explosively fresh aroma: ripe strawberry, watermelon, sweet lemon, raspberry. In the cup the fruit simplifies and turns zesty and bittersweet, dry yet juicy. Lean-bodied; dry-finishing.
