Reserva del Patron Colombia Narino by PT's Coffee Roasting Co. Review |
Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2008
Origin: Narino Department, southern Colombia Price: $11.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Distinctive aromatics: sweetly dry fruit notes that suggest black current, blackberry, tart cherry, cedary orange. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel, fine balance. Long, deep finish that stays on the rich side of astringent.

Notes: Reserva del Patron is a very high-grown and exceptionally rigorously selected green coffee from an admired growing region in the southernmost Colombia Department of Narino. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT's motto is "without the love, it's just coffee." Visit or call 888-678-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: The crisply sweet, exhilarating dry berry notes are reminiscent of great Kenya coffees. The berryish fruit takes on a distinctly chocolaty cast in milk.


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.
