|Coffee Origin:||Huila growing region, Colombia.|
|Review Date:||July 2008|
Blind Assessment: Roundly balanced, quietly rich coffee. Soft aroma with nut and chocolate notes. In the cup gently rich acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel, cherry-chocolate notes that carry into a simple but full finish.
Notes: La Golondrina is part of the Las Mingas project led by Counter Culture aimed at improving lives and coffees by offering substantial purchase incentives for quality among participating small producers in the Cauca region of Colombia. This small lot is from the farm of Duviel Coca. Counter Culture is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to fine coffee and youthful, enthusiastic leadership. Visit
Who Should Drink It : Those who prefer linen to silk.
