  • Colombia Las Mingas Micro-Lot - Anival Gomez

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: May 2009
Origin: Cauca Department, south-western Colombia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The aroma is sweet-toned and alive with flowers, ripe tomato, a hint of cedar; the mouthfeel silky. The issue in the cup is the acidity, sweet but intense, all but sidelining delicate cocoa and floral notes and carrying with dry authority into the finish.

Notes: La Mingas is a program set up by coffee exporter Virmax Cafe, designed to promote direct trade relationships between quality-minded Colombian coffee growers and importers and roasters in coffee consuming countries. Based in the San Diego area, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is a retailer and wholesaler that focuses on organic and socially responsible coffees. Visit or call 858-551-1707 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of dry, austere white table wines.


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.
