Millstone Coffee

Decaf Colombian Supremo

Location: Cincinnati, Ohio

Origin:

Roast: Medium-Dark

Est. Price:

Review Date: August 1997

Agtron: 37/53

Aroma: 6

Acidity: 7

Body: 8

Flavor: 7

Blind Assessment:

Solid, balanced, with a slightly winy acidity wrapped in a substantial body, all characteristics of a good Colombia. But again, these virtues seem attenuated. The complexity is confined to the middle registers, with both top and bottom notes pinched off. A slight sweetness fills out the profile in the finish.

Notes:

Solid, balanced with a slightly winy acidity wrapped in substantial body. Decaffeinated by an indirect process, involving use of ethyl acetate

Who Should Drink It: A possibility for caffeine-shy aficionados who crave something resembling a classic Latin-American profile. Slight hints of carbon and pungency contributed by the roast could please West Coast palates and help them forgive the rather shallow bottom.
