Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: January 2007
Origin: Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Intense aroma vivid with tart cherry notes and hints of chocolate and tomato. Big, giddily sweet acidity with continued pie cherry notes with a lush lean toward chocolate. Very slightly astringent in the long finish.

Notes: Purchased pre-ground in a 16-ounce metal can at a Publix supermarket in Atlanta; 36 cents per dry ounce. This Colombia coffee was produced by some of the 600,000-plus members of the National Federation of the Coffee Growers of Colombia, an association of mostly small-holding Colombian growers whose reliably high-quality coffee, community support programs and sophisticated marketing campaigns around the Juan Valdez symbol together constitute one of the great successes of coffee history. Brown Gold is a brand of Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee. Visit or call 800-387-9398 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Classic Colombia of the better sort, grandly but sweetly acidy.


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.
