Colombian by Reading Coffee Roasters Review |
  • Reading Coffee Roasters

    Birdsboro, Pennsylvania
  • Colombian

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

Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, bright aroma: gently pungent nut and fir notes, hints of coffee fruit (tart cherry), butter, chocolate. The aromatics simplify in the quiet, balanced cup; the tart fruit deepens toward brandy, the hint of buttery chocolate persists. Simple but clean, sweet finish.

Notes: Reading Coffee Roasters specializes in "gourmet coffees medium roasted the old fashioned European way ... Never bitter or burnt!" according to its website, Visit or call 800-331-6713 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A slight hint of brandyish fruit ferment pleasantly complicates the profile of this otherwise classic Colombia.


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.
