Blind Assessment: Sweet, delicate, floral-toned aroma with hints of lemon and a buttery chocolate. Reveals weight and power in the cup, with a rich acidity with continued floral, lemon and butter notes. Clean, rich finish.

Notes: This coffee reflects an ongoing partnership between Reunion Island Coffee and the Las Hermosas Cooperative of small farms in southern Tolima Department of Colombia. In the last two years of the project partnership Reunion Island Coffee has donated funds to build drying beds and a cupping laboratory for the cooperative. Reunion Island Coffee is a quality-oriented roasting company founded by Canadian specialty coffee veteran Peter Pesce. Visit or call 800-565-5950 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A classic breakfast cup, sweet but powerfully bright and rich.


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.
