Colombian Coffee Federation
Café La Vereda – Green
|Review Date:||August 1999|
Blind Assessment: A full though monotoned coffee with a fruity but rather inert sweetness. Two panelists suspected from the flat profile that the coffee was from last year 's crop ("Oldish; past crop?"). In fact, this is a current crop coffee. I also suspect storage problems of some kind: The "sourish undertone" that one cupper complained about tasted like bagginess to me, a fault that often comes from contact with moisture after processing.
Notes: A full though monotoned coffee with a fruity but rather inert sweetness. One of the new Colombian Coffee Federation specialty coffees. From any number of over 700 small farms. Grown in full or partial shade from trees of the traditional typica variety at elevations ranging from 5,500 to 6,500 feet.
