  • Cool Breeze Colombian

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

Blind Assessment: Delicately complex, high-toned aromatics are the glory here. Giddily fruity aroma, with distinct vanilla notes and suggestions of white wine, custardy caramel, flowers, chocolate. In the cup delicate and very sweet, with continuing floral, wine (Riesling) and semi-sweet chocolate notes. The floral delicacy carries into the slightly astringent finish. Too delicate for this world: loses some of its refreshing complexity as the cup cools.

Notes: A Supremo grade Colombia, the highest grade by bean size. Boca Java is a small-batch, custom retail/wholesale roaster that roast-dates its coffees and emphasizes freshness and quality. Visit or call 888-262-2528 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Nicely named: An elegantly refreshing coffee.


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.
