Coffee Review - Colombia Finca Villa Loyola by PT's Coffee
Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: March 2012
Origin: Narino Department, southern Colombia Price: $18.35/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Finely poised and balanced. Ripe lemon, cocoa, peach, night flowers in aroma and cup. Rich, sweetly pungent acidity; plush, deep mouthfeel. Lemon notes in particular linger in the sweet-toned trajectory of a very long finish.

Notes: Produced at above 6,000 feet from trees of the Caturra variety of Arabica. A coffee from Finca Villa Loyola won first place in the 2008 Cup of Excellence competition for Colombia green coffees. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit or call 888-678-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Complete coffee in the classic Colombia mode.
