Colombian Fair-Trade Select by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2008
Origin: Southern Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A round bakers' chocolate character in the aroma, with subtle berry, citrus and aromatic wood notes. Balanced acidity supports the dominant sweet chocolate tones in the cup. A long finish with fruit-toned cocoa complication, suggesting cocoa hulls or nibs.

Notes: This coffee is certified Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: Those who like balance in life and appreciate the less conventional manifestations of chocolate.


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.
