Café Sierra Nevada – Green
Colombian Coffee Federation
|Review Date:||August 1999|
Blind Assessment: Distinct chocolate or sweet cocoa notes provide the main intrigue in this soft, fragrant coffee. "Buttery toffee, love it!" exclaimed one panelist. The rather thinnish body is probably what relegated this nicely nuanced coffee to the middle of the ratings.
Notes: Distinct chocolate or sweet cocoa notes provide the main intrigue in this soft, fragrant coffee. One of the new Colombian Coffee Federation specialty coffees. Grown in full shade, predominantly from trees of the traditional typica variety, at elevations of 3,300 to 4,300 feet, a relatively modest height for a Colombia coffee.
