Colombia Medium Roast
|Roaster Location:||Pleasanton, California|
|Review Date:||October 2008|
Deep-toned, simple aroma with fir and molasses notes. In the cup low-toned acidity, syrupy mouthfeel, continued fir and molasses notes, caramel, and perhaps a slight fruity tartness suggesting dry berry or tamarind. Sweet, simple, rich finish.
Available whole-bean in bulk at many Safeway supermarkets. In early October 2008 on sale for $7.99 per pound; normally $10.64 per pound. Safeway is the third-largest supermarket chain in the United States, with nearly 1,800 stores in western and central United States and western Canada. Visit
Who Should Drink It
A straightforward coffee for those who prefer body and richness to brightness and complexity. Given the volume and anonymity of coffee needed to fill the bins of this proprietary brand, however, some variation on the profile described here should be expected.
