Flying Goat Coffee
Colombian Huila Valencia
|Roaster Location:||Healdsburg, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Huila Department, southern Colombia|
|Review Date:||February 2006|
Blind Assessment: A classic, cherryish sweet ferment runs lushly from aroma through finish. In the aroma the sweet ferment reads as an expansive cherry-toned milk chocolate; in the cup it takes on a Cabernet character, though still chocolaty. The short finish is superb: rich, deep, sweet, chocolaty. Slight astringency in the long finish. The ferment tones remain sound and sweet as the cup cools.
Notes: From the eastern slopes of the Andes in the admired Huila growing regions. Flying Goat Coffee is a leading boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy Ethiopia Harrar coffees and big, fruity red table wines.
