Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: December 2004
Origin: San Augustin growing region, Huila Department, Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A tribute to the tartly sweet, invigorating sensation coffee insiders call acidity. In the aroma richly fruity and orange-toned; in the cup giddy with rich, high-toned acidity laced with fruit suggesting oranges and tart cherries. The acidity softens and sweetens voluptuously in the finish.

Notes: The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans. Roasterie president Danny O'Neill is an indefatigable coffee traveler and farm visitor whose travel and generous personality has facilitated this and several other well-established "relationship" coffees. Proceeds from the sale of this coffee over the past five years have helped build a community center. Visit or call 800-376-0245 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of good Zinfandels.


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.
