A classic medium-roasted Latin-American cup, acidy but distinctly sweet andfree of bitterness. The acidity displays some pleasant complication: tangy, grapefruity, perhapsspicy. Nominating reader John Schulz of Northglenn, Colorado rates his sample 90 - 94, findingit "rich and complex, with subtle winey notes." I tasted no wine notes in the sample I broughthome, but wine - sweet fermented fruit - notes are quite common in contemporary Colombiacoffees and doubtless appear in other batches of the Millstone presentation.
Supremo is the highest grade of Colombia coffee, with the main grading criterion being sizeof bean. Millstone is coffee giant Procter & Gamble's serious and well-run specialty arm. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Wine notes or no wine notes, this is a fine American breakfast cup, sweetenough to be drunk black but dry enough to complement the pancakes.
