Bolivia Chicaloma Cup of Excellence 2007 Organic
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Sud-Yungas region, Bolivia|
|Review Date:||June 2008|
Mouthfeel and presence trumped aromatics. Both co-taster Heather Perry (87) and Ken (87) admired smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel in the small cup and solid balance in milk. Aromatics were relatively subdued and simple, however: "spicy" with "light lemon undertones" for Heather, "smoky chocolate" with floral hints for Ken (87).
A prize winner in the 2007 Bolivia Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed twelfth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 86.3 from an international jury. Organically grown on the tiny farm of Martin Huanca Flores. Olympia Coffee Roasters is a small-batch wholesale and one-location-retail roasting company with a youthful, no-nonsense style and a commitment to quality. Visit
Who Should Drink It
A syrupy and quietly malty straight shot with good presence in milk.
