Decaf Colombia Supremo Pitalito Estate

Location: Kansas City, Missouri

Origin: Colombia

Roast: Medium

Est. Price:

Review Date: June 2005

Agtron: 44/63

Aroma: 8

Acidity: 7

Body: 7

Flavor: 7

Aftertaste: 7

Blind Assessment:

Mid-toned but rich, deep aroma, with fresh leather, pear, peach and milk chocolate suggestions. Simplifies a bit in the cup, undercurrents of pipe tobacco and a tartly refreshing, sweet fruit, pie cherries perhaps or kiwi.

Notes:

No decaffeination method is noted on the package, which probably means this coffee was decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to “air roasting,” a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: A fine, bright breakfast coffee for those bright-eyed types who wake up naturally.
