Colombia Supremo by Don Francisco's Gourmet Coffee Review |
Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2006
Origin: Colombia Price: $7.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Very sweet-toned, intense aroma with distinctly buttery vanilla notes and hints of chocolate, honey and flowers. In the cup sweetly and richly acidy. The fundamental flavor complex is a chocolaty coffee fruit with heady complications of vanilla, flowers and honey.

Notes: Supremo is the highest grade of Colombian coffee, based mainly on bean size. Don Francisco's is the upscale specialty coffee line of F. Gavina & Sons, the large, family-owned-and-operated roasting company in the Los Angeles area. Don Francisco's is named after Francisco Gavina, the Cuban-born father of the Gavina clan.

Who Should Drink It: Those who mix a sweet tooth with an austere aesthetic.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
