Colombian Organic Medium Roast
|Roaster Location:||Amherst, New Hampshire|
|Review Date:||February 2006|
Blind Assessment: Musty earth tones of the kind typical of Sumatras rather than Colombias complicate an otherwise sweet, richly acidy cup. The musty tones read as a cedary spice, perhaps black pepper, and are enveloped in a deep chocolate richness with some slight, vanilla-toned top notes. Sweet finish with a gentle balancing astringency.
Notes: Certified organically grown and shade-grown. The "A&E" in A&E Roastery references Adam and Emeran, respectively roastmaster and owner of this wholesale and retail microroaster specializing in organically grown coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Sumatra drinkers interested in an elegant variation on their favorite earth-toned cup.
