|Roaster Location:||Beverly, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Narino Department, southern Colombia|
|Review Date:||February 2007|
A classic cup: pure, simple, intense, refined. Sweet-toned but crisp aroma: tomato, cedar, cardamom, chocolate. Richly and sweetly acidy in the cup with the classic complex of flowers and fresh coffee fruit with rounding hints of chocolate.
A prize winner in the 2006 Colombia Second Harvest Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed eighth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 88.65 from an international jury. Produced from trees of the caturra variety at an impressive elevation of approximately 6,000 feet by farmer Alvaro Flavio Ortega. Atomic Cafe is a coffee house on the North Shore of Massachusetts that began its in-house roasting program in 2005. Visit www.atomicafe.com or call 978-922-0042 for more information.
