Blind Assessment: Rich, fruit and brandy. Cherry, blueberry, milk chocolate, brandy, lily-like flowers in aroma and cup. Lively, effervescent acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Rich and sweet in the short finish, slightly drying in the long.
Notes: A blend of a Costa Rica coffee from the distinguished Lomas Al Rio mill and a Colombian coffee produced by the OCCICAFE cooperative in the La Plata region of Huila, Colombia. Olympia Coffee Roasting is a small-batch wholesale and retail roasting company with a youthful, no-nonsense style and a commitment to high-quality organic coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: The out-front and expressive fruit, brandy and flowers that dominate cup and aroma should make a nice fit with holiday brunches and desserts.
