  • Colombian Organic Medium Roast

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2006
Origin: Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Musty earth tones of the kind typical of Sumatras rather than Colombias complicate an otherwise sweet, richly acidy cup. The musty tones read as a cedary spice, perhaps black pepper, and are enveloped in a deep chocolate richness with some slight, vanilla-toned top notes. Sweet finish with a gentle balancing astringency.

Notes: Certified organically grown and shade-grown. The "A&E" in A&E Roastery references Adam and Emeran, respectively roastmaster and owner of this wholesale and retail microroaster specializing in organically grown coffees. Visit or call 603-578-3338 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Sumatra drinkers interested in an elegant variation on their favorite earth-toned cup.


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.
