Roast: Dark Review Date: September 2008
Origin: Bucaramanga growing region, Colombia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Low-toned, rich aroma: molasses, nut, floral topknots. In the cup smooth, deep, simple. The roast-influenced sweet caramel and molasses notes grow crisper under the influence of a gentle acidity, taking on a dark chocolate nuance.

Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Produced by the Mesa de los Santos farm (, one of Colombia's most sustainably advanced farms. Bold ! Bean is a small-batch, artisan roaster offering, in its own words, "Single Origin and Artful Blends" to northeast Florida. Visit or call 904-855-1181 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A simple but deep-toned, versatile darker-roasted cup.
