La Esperanza Colombia
|Roaster Location:||Acton, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Huila growing region, Colombia.|
|Review Date:||August 2008|
Blind Assessment: A sweet tangerine aroma predominates, with a light floral quality reminiscent of Muscat dessert wine. Bright floral toned acidity carries into a subtly complex cup; hints of sweet caramel, citrus, cocoa and aromatic wood. A delicate candy-like sweetness in the finish.
