Green Mountain Coffee
Colombian Supremo Popayan
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Cauca Department, southwestern Colombia|
|Review Date:||June 2003|
What coffee people call acidity, the dry yet sweet sensation characteristic of high-grown coffees, is the main event here: rich, dominating, toned by black-cherry fruit with a slight cabernet-like twist.
Sold whole bean in bulk; $9.99/pound. Popayan is one of Colombia's most respected regional origins. Supremo is the highest grade of Colombia coffee based on bean size. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.
