Blind Assessment:

Crisply sweet, chocolaty. Baker’s chocolate, plum, magnolia, cedar, molasses in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, round acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The gently drying finish is redolent with notes of baker’s chocolate and magnolia, with a hint of cedar-like aromatic wood.

Notes:

Produced by La Union de Nariño from trees of the Caturra, Colombia and Castillo varieties of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.

The Bottom Line: A solid Colombia cup: richly chocolate-toned, balanced and sweet.
