Colombian Supremo Popayan by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: June 2003
Origin: Cauca Department, southwestern Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: What coffee people call acidity, the dry yet sweet sensation characteristic of high-grown coffees, is the main event here: rich, dominating, toned by black-cherry fruit with a slight cabernet-like twist.

Notes: Sold whole bean in bulk; $9.99/pound. Popayan is one of Colombia's most respected regional origins. Supremo is the highest grade of Colombia coffee based on bean size. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles. Visit or call 800-223-6768 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of big, dry, fruity wines and big, dry, fruity breakfast coffees.


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.
