Colombian Vintage La Cacica
|Roaster Location:||Thornton, Colorado|
|Coffee Origin:||Huila growing region, southern Colombia|
|Review Date:||May 2004|
A gently austere cup: balanced, lightly acidy, crisply and quietly complex: dried apricot, bittersweet chocolate, perhaps a twist of fresh-cut cedar. Softens and sweetens engagingly as it cools. Reader Maria Rueda from Washington, D.C. finds "It's the best coffee I've every tried!"
Produced by a cooperative of approximately 100 families in the admired Huila growing region of Colombia. Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers one of the country's largest selections of single-origin coffees. Visit
