  • Colombian Supremo

Roast: NA Review Date: January 2003
Origin: Colombia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A classic medium-roasted Latin-American cup, acidy but distinctly sweet and free of bitterness. The acidity displays some pleasant complication: tangy, grapefruity, perhaps spicy. Nominating reader John Schulz of Northglenn, Colorado rates his sample 90 - 94, finding it "rich and complex, with subtle winey notes." I tasted no wine notes in the sample I brought home, but wine - sweet fermented fruit - notes are quite common in contemporary Colombia coffees and doubtless appear in other batches of the Millstone presentation.

Notes: Supremo is the highest grade of Colombia coffee, with the main grading criterion being size of bean. Millstone is coffee giant Procter & Gamble's serious and well-run specialty arm. Visit for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Wine notes or no wine notes, this is a fine American breakfast cup, sweet enough to be drunk black but dry enough to complement the pancakes.


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.
