  • Decaffeinated Colombian

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: August 1997
Origin: Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Another coffee with a pleasing first impression. The acidity is deep, fruity, perhaps winy. But there's no cushion or bounce here, and little intrigue beyond the fruity acidity and a touch of carbon. The hard simplicity carries into the aftertaste, although the profile rounds a bit as the coffee cools.

Notes: A good breakfast coffee with a simple, centered profile and a touch of wine in the acidity. Decaffeinated by the Swiss Water Process (TM)

Who Should Drink It: A good breakfast coffee for caffeine-avoiders. The solidly centered profile and the touch of wine in the acidity all mark this coffee as a good Colombia, but like most of the coffees in the cupping, the profile is severely attenuated, doubtless by the impact of decaffeination.


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.
