  • Colombia El Castillo Micro-Lot Nelson Melo

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Cauca Department, southern Colombia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: An aromatically rather simple coffee with a tremendous relaxed and almost voluptuous structure. In the aroma low-toned and round with hints of flowers and cherry-toned fruit. Softly acidy and sweetly and deeply rich in the cup. Sweet, almost sugary finish.

Notes: A special small lot from farmer Nelson Melo. Alterra is a quality-oriented small-batch wholesale and retail roaster with a small chain of caf? locations in Milwaukee and environs. Visit or call 414-273-3747 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who find no shame in being seduced by comfort.


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.
