Coffee Review - Colombian pod by Baronet Coffee Roasters
  • Baronet Coffee Roasters

    Hartford, Connecticut
  • Colombian LIght Roast (paper pod)

Roast: Medium Review Date: April 2011
Origin: Colombia Price: $8.50/16 pods

Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Bunn My Café single-serve brewing device to produce a 6-ounce serving): Rather lively, savory-sweet profile with ripe tomato and dark chocolate suggestions carrying from aroma through cup to finish. Smooth mouthfeel, lemony acidity. The aromatics are only fully expressed in the cup; the aroma is a bit muted in intensity and the finish pleasing but short.

Notes: The Bunn My Café ( is a well-designed, versatile machine that brews from pillow-shaped paper pods. However, at this writing (early 2011), and based on our testing, the range and quality of Bunn-compatible pods available from cooperating roasting companies do not quite appear to live up to the potential of the machine. In operation since 1930, Baronet is a third generation, family-run coffee business. Visit or call 800-227-6638 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Genuinely captures some Colombia character: richness, ripe tomatoey and lemony acidity rounded by a hint of dark chocolate. Unfortunately, lacks carry-through in aroma and finish.


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.
