Colombia Micro-Lot Wilmer Delgado by Coffee Klatch Review |
  • Coffee Klatch

    San Dimas, California
  • Colombia Micro-Lot Wilmer Delgado

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: April 2008
Origin: Cauca Department, southern Colombia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Explosive aromatics: In the break deep, rich, buttery and honey-like with suggestions of flowers, coffee fruit, fresh-tanned leather. In the cup the butter notes turn rather pungent, toward butterscotch with continued flowers and a fruit that softens toward milk chocolate. Medium bodied, slightly underpowered and short in the finish but intense and intriguing aromatics throughout.

Notes: From the farm of Wilmer Delgado, grown at an elevation of 6,000 feet from trees of the caturra variety. Coffee Klatch is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area featuring small lots of exceptional coffees and whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships and placed second in the 2007 World Championship brewing Coffee Klatch espresso blends.
