Blind Assessment:

Richly and deeply sweet. Baker’s chocolate, raisin, Brazil nut, magnolia, oak in aroma and cup. Roundly tart acidity; plump, syrupy mouthfeel. Richly drying, quietly nut-toned finish.


Supremo is the highest grade of Colombia coffee based on bean size and relative freedom from physical imperfections. Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-888-3042 for more information.
