  • Colombia Narino Supremo

Roast: Dark Review Date: February 2006
Origin: Narino Department, southern Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The roast dominates here, deeply pungent and cedary in the aroma, with floral and Mediterranean herb top notes. Roundly and sweetly roasty in the cup, lightish in body but deep in dimension, with floral top notes and a cedary, herb-toned chocolate. Clean, rich and chocolaty in the short finish, though a burned astringency surfaces in the long, particularly as the cup cools.

Notes: This Colombia, purchased at a Starbucks retail outlet, represents a higher grade of Colombia (Supremo) based on bean size than the Starbucks Colombia sold in bags in supermarkets, which consists of the smaller bean Excelso grade. This coffee also boasts some regional pedigree, as it was grown in Narino Department, a particularly respected growing region in southern Colombia. Visit for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a roasty Colombia close at hand.


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.
