Colombia Dark Roast Decaf
|Roaster Location:||Baton Rouge, Louisiana|
|Review Date:||July 2002|
Blind Assessment: Wonderfully robust balance of sweet, roasty, and roundly acidy tones, with sweetness in the ascendancy. Some fruity complication, but the main appeal is pure, classic Latin-America coffee expression. The dark roast rounds and sweetens the acidity but leaves little bitterness behind.
Notes: This very characteristic Colombia was decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. CC's Coffee is the upscale specialty line of Community Coffee, a distinguished family-owned coffee company founded in 1919. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of the big Latin-America classic cup with the acidity discreetly tamed by the roast.
