Colombia San Agustin by Mystic Monk Coffee Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2013
Origin: San Agustín growing region, Huila Department, southern Colombia Price: $13.99/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Crisp, sweet, pungent. Almond, roasted cacao nib and a brightening hint of tangerine in aroma and cup, with distinct floral notes complicating the aroma. Gently rounded acidity; silky, lively mouthfeel. Flavor fades in a rich though drying finish.

Notes: The San Agustín area is one of the most admired of Colombia coffee-growing regions. Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. Roastmaster Brother Java emphasizes his artisan approach to roasting and his commitment to quality. Visit or call 877-751-6377 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer a smooth, crisply nutty morning cup with hints of a fudgy chocolate and a gently backgrounded acidity.


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.
