Colombia La Vereda by Bucks County Coffee Review |
  • Bucks County Coffee

    Langhorne, Pennsylvania
  • Colombia La Vereda

Roast: Medium Review Date: December 2004
Origin: Caldas Department, Colombia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A balanced, sweet, endearingly simple cup, refreshing and direct without drama or complexity. Low-toned fruit, prune perhaps, and a hint of flowers. Slight astringency in the otherwise long, agreeable finish.

Notes: La Vereda is produced by 700 families of the Embera-Chami tribe of Amerindians in the Andes Mountains in the Colombian department of Caldas. Bucks County contributes to an endowment fund supporting the Embera-Chami community, so far providing eight new schoolrooms, a new community center, and hundreds of school desks and chairs. Bucks County Coffee has managed to stay close to its micro-roasting roots throughout its expansion from a small roasting machine in a carriage house to one of the country's largest regional specialty coffee chains.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy simple, unadorned food.


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.
