  • Colombia San Agustin Arnulfo Leguizamo

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: December 2012
Origin: San Agustín growing region, Huila Department, southern Colombia Price: $17.95/12 ounces
 

Blind Assessment: Crisply tart black currant and blackberry in aroma and cup, enveloped in floral sweetness and pungent fresh-cut cedar. Round, balanced acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Impressively rich, deep, complexly flavor-saturated finish.

Notes: From trees of the sturdy Caturra variety of Arabica. Processed by the classic wet or “washed” method: fruit is removed before drying using traditional ferment-and-wash methods and the beans are sun-dried. This coffee was grown and processed by the fifty members of La Asociación Los Naranjos de San Agustín cooperative. Beansmith Coffee is a small-batch roasting company located in La Vista, Nebraska that believes that coffee drinkers should know as much as they can about the coffee they drink, and that there is a story behind every cup, one worth exploring.

Who Should Drink It: A pure, deep-toned, full-bodied cup in the classic Colombia style. Produced from trees of the Caturra variety, a selection of Bourbon that is usually rather basic in the cup, but that here displays some of the celebrated pungent berry character of its parent.

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.
