  • Colombian Huila Valencia

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2006
Origin: Huila Department, southern Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A classic, cherryish sweet ferment runs lushly from aroma through finish. In the aroma the sweet ferment reads as an expansive cherry-toned milk chocolate; in the cup it takes on a Cabernet character, though still chocolaty. The short finish is superb: rich, deep, sweet, chocolaty. Slight astringency in the long finish. The ferment tones remain sound and sweet as the cup cools.

Notes: From the eastern slopes of the Andes in the admired Huila growing regions. Flying Goat Coffee is a leading boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit or call 800-675-3599 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy Ethiopia Harrar coffees and big, fruity red table wines.


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.
