Colombia by Starbucks Coffee Review |

  • Colombia

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

Blind Assessment: A classic but quiet, rather lazy cup. Caramelly, richly roasty aroma with ripe tomato, cedar and sweet orange complications. Similarly quiet in the cup, with a hint of chocolate joining the tomato, orange and cedar notes. Simple but rich finish.

Notes: Purchased whole bean in a valve-bag at a Safeway supermarket. The coffee in this Starbucks supermarket-issue Colombia is a standard Excelso grade, but brought to a darker roast than the competing 100% Colombian coffees sold on adjoining supermarket shelves. Visit for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Supermarket cruisers looking for convenience and a decent, roast-rounded breakfast 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.
