  • Pitalito Estate Colombian Supremo

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2007
Origin: San Agustin growing region, Huila Department, southern Colombia Price: $10.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Pungent, buttery aroma with subtle but persistent floral notes. The cup is deep-toned and balanced, with syrupy body and continued floral top notes and buttery, chocolaty mid-notes. The elusive floral notes persist impressively in the long, rich finish.

Notes: Pitalito comes from a highly respected growing area east of the Andes in the southern Colombian Department of Huila. The term "Estate" may be a bit of a misnomer, as it appears that this coffee comes from a community of small-holding growers, growers who have benefited from a long-term, supportive relationship with The Roasterie. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that specializes in building ongoing relationships with growers and that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: Perhaps those who simultaneously enjoy substance and subtlety, butter and flowers.


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.
