Tres Santos Colombia by Intelligentsia Coffee Review |
  • Intelligentsia Coffee

    Chicago, Illinois
  • Tres Santos Colombia

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Valle de Cauca Department, western Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned aroma with delicate floral-, cherry- and chocolate-toned fruit notes. In the cup more striking for its superb body and balanced structure than for its agreeable but limited nuance, a dry cherry-chocolate. The long, deep finish stays just on the rich side of astringent.

Notes: Intelligentsia is a distinguished Chicago-based specialty roaster and a leader in sourcing and roasting small, exceptional lots of coffee like this one. Visit or call 888-945-9786 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who choose clothing more by texture than by detail.


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.
