Zoka Coffee Roasters
Colombia Huila Supremo
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Huila Department, southern Colombia.|
|Review Date:||February 2007|
Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet-toned aroma with cedar and butter notes. In the cup silky mouthfeel and a quiet, tight-knit complexity: distinct cocoa and hints of cedar, orange, flowers, butter. Smooth, gently rich, very persistent and pleasing finish.
Notes: Growing areas east of the Andes in the southern Colombia Department of Huila are particularly admired for their fine coffees. Supremo is the highest grade of Colombia coffee based on fewest physical imperfections and largest bean size. Zoka is a leading small-batch roaster specializing in espresso blends and espresso education. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who always pick the chair with the ottoman.
