Colombian La Vereda (K-Cup) by Timothy's World Coffee Review |

    Toronto, Canada
  • Colombian La Vereda (K-Cup)

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: January 2004
Origin: Caldas Department, west-central Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Thin but intense aroma, with distinct papaya-toned fruit. Medium-bodied but lively in the cup, where the high-toned fruit, still reminiscent of papaya, takes on a delicate chocolate richness. Sweet, balanced acidity.

Notes: K-Cups are designed for the Keurig single-serve brewer. La Vereda is a specialty coffee produced, like most of Colombia's coffees, on tiny, family-run farms, in this case, farms of the Embera Chami native community of San Lorenzo in the Department of Caldas. Timothy's purchase of La Vereda coffee helps fund school room construction and other projects in San Lorenzo. Timothy's is a Toronto-based, quality-oriented specialty coffee chain with locations in Canada, the United States and Europe. Visit or call 888-937-6278 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Its clean fruit and delicately tart sweetness makes this an ideal coffee for those traditional coffee drinkers who take their cup without sugar or whitener.


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.
