Colombian Dos Quebradas Special Reserve Cup of Excellence by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: August 2006
Origin: Huila Department, southern Colombia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A deep, spicy floral character - dusk flowers, tea rose - leads in aroma and cup, supported by low-acid fruit notes - peach, cherry - and hints of milk chocolate and leather. The acidity is deep-toned and round, the finish rich and clean.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2006 Colombia First Harvest Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed fourth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 90.2 from an international jury. Produced from trees of the caturra variety of Arabica on the "Dos Quebradas" farm of Alonso Sevilla Zuniga at a growing altitude of approximately 5,600 feet. This coffee is part of Green Mountain's newly launched "Special Reserve" series of select small lots of seasonally available coffees. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of spicy, floral white 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.
