Blind Assessment:

Sweet-toned, bright aroma: gently pungent nut and fir notes, hints of coffee fruit (tart cherry), butter, chocolate. The aromatics simplify in the quiet, balanced cup; the tart fruit deepens toward brandy, the hint of buttery chocolate persists. Simple but clean, sweet finish.


Reading Coffee Roasters specializes in “gourmet coffees medium roasted the old fashioned European way … Never bitter or burnt!” according to its website, www.readingcoffee.com. Visit www.readingcoffee.com or call 800-331-6713 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A slight hint of brandyish fruit ferment pleasantly complicates the profile of this otherwise classic Colombia.
