Colombia Micro-Lot Huila La Argentina by Willoughby's Coffee & Tea Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2008
Origin: Huila Department, Colombia. Price: $9.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Delicate but intense aroma, with milk chocolate, nut and coffee fruit notes that read as tart cherry. In the cup impressive balance and structure: lushly sweet but crisply acidy with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Continued tart cherry and chocolate notes carry into a simple but cleanly rich finish.

Notes: This coffee is grown at very high altitudes by small producers in southwest Huila Department. Willoughby's Coffee & Tea is a pioneer specialty coffee roaster recently reinvigorated and refocused on artisan roasting and a very extensive collection of elite single-origin coffees. Visit or call 800-388-8400 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Great intensity, presence and classic simplicity (in Art 101 terms, more Doric than Ionic).


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.
