Blind Assessment:

Evaluated at proportions of 5 grams of instant coffee powder mixed with 8.5 ounces (250 ml) of hot water. Caramel-toned, richly sweet. Dark caramel, magnolia-like flowers, cedar, baker’s chocolate, a hint of apricot in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned in structure with brisk acidity; smooth mouthfeel. The finish is crisply sweet and resonant, with lingering notes of caramel and apricot.


The green coffee for this product was produced in Colombia from trees of the Arabica species. It was solubilized by the freeze-dried method at origin. WAKACOFFEE donates 4% from the sale of each box of 8 packets to support clean water projects. For more information, visit www.wakacoffee.com.

The Bottom Line: A appealing 100% Colombia coffee in instant format that largely preserves the character of the green coffee.
