Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: April 2008
Origin: Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Nut, honeyed flowers and tart cherry dominate the aroma. In the cup the acidity is intense but rounded, the mouthfeel syrupy, the structure sweet, the aromatics deep: the flowers turn softly pungent and spicy, the fruit richer and more complex. In the finish the honeyed sweetness envelops a slight astringency.

Notes: Simple naming and austere packaging for this Colombia offered by the high-end luxury coffee line of R. Miguel Meza, one of the most innovative and gifted of the new generation of specialty coffee buyers and roasters. Visit www.rmiguelcoffee.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Not an extremely light-roasted coffee, but it reads that way: bright, pure, austerely refreshing.


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.
