Victrola Coffee Roasters
Colombia Huila Monserrate Excelso
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Huila Department, Colombia.|
|Review Date:||February 2008|
Blind Assessment: Flowers run through the profile from aroma through finish, with smoky notes in the aroma, crisp chocolate in the roughly full-bodied cup and again in the rather heavy finish.
Notes: Monserrate is produced by a community of 28 families near the town of La Plata in Huila Department. This coffee represents a special project and green coffee brand of Atlas Coffee Importers, Seattle. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Floral top notes float over a succession of rougher, more pungent sensations, making this a coffee for those who enjoy paradox and contradiction.
