Exportadora de Café Condor
Café Virgen de Oro
|Roaster Location:||Antioquia, Colombia|
|Review Date:||August 1999|
Blind Assessment: A promising coffee shadowed by inconsistency. The good cups: sweet, full, deep, but alive with a pleasing shimmer of acidity. The bad: full and sweet but monotoned, flat, with a disturbing hint of astringency in aftertaste.
Notes: Sweet, full and alive with a shimmer of acidity but haunted by an inconsistent flatness. A private mill coffee exported by Exportadora de Café Condor. From five farms. Grown in either full or partial shade from trees of the traditional typica variety at elevations of 4,000 to 6,200 feet.
