Alterra Coffee Roasters
Colombia El Castillo Micro-Lot Nelson Melo
|Roaster Location:||Milwaukee, Wisconsin|
|Coffee Origin:||Cauca Department, southern Colombia.|
|Review Date:||February 2007|
Blind Assessment: An aromatically rather simple coffee with a tremendous relaxed and almost voluptuous structure. In the aroma low-toned and round with hints of flowers and cherry-toned fruit. Softly acidy and sweetly and deeply rich in the cup. Sweet, almost sugary finish.
Notes: A special small lot from farmer Nelson Melo. Alterra is a quality-oriented small-batch wholesale and retail roaster with a small chain of caf? locations in Milwaukee and environs. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who find no shame in being seduced by comfort.
