Bucks County Coffee
Colombia La Vereda
|Roaster Location:||Langhorne, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||Caldas Department, Colombia|
|Review Date:||December 2004|
Blind Assessment: A balanced, sweet, endearingly simple cup, refreshing and direct without drama or complexity. Low-toned fruit, prune perhaps, and a hint of flowers. Slight astringency in the otherwise long, agreeable finish.
Notes: La Vereda is produced by 700 families of the Embera-Chami tribe of Amerindians in the Andes Mountains in the Colombian department of Caldas. Bucks County contributes to an endowment fund supporting the Embera-Chami community, so far providing eight new schoolrooms, a new community center, and hundreds of school desks and chairs. Bucks County Coffee has managed to stay close to its micro-roasting roots throughout its expansion from a small roasting machine in a carriage house to one of the country's largest regional specialty coffee chains.
