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.

Notes:

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.
