  • Colombian Vintage La Cacica

Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2004
Origin: Huila growing region, southern Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A gently austere cup: balanced, lightly acidy, crisply and quietly complex: dried apricot, bittersweet chocolate, perhaps a twist of fresh-cut cedar. Softens and sweetens engagingly as it cools. Reader Maria Rueda from Washington, D.C. finds "It's the best coffee I've every tried!"

Notes: Produced by a cooperative of approximately 100 families in the admired Huila growing region of Colombia. Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers one of the country's largest selections of single-origin coffees. Visit or call 800-277-1107 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer linen to silk.


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.
