Oporapa – Green
|Review Date:||August 1999|
Blind Assessment: A complex, subtly nuanced coffee, light-bodied but softly and sweetly acidy, embellished with fruit and pronounced chocolate tones. I tasted papaya in the finish. "Deep & lush," wrote one panelist on aroma. "Slight tobacco. Leafy." Apparently balance and seductive grace notes carried this delicate coffee to the top of the ratings.
Notes: A seductively balanced, delicate coffee embellished with papaya and chocolate tones. Exported by Expocafe, the national cooperative association. From thirty small farms. Partly shade grown from trees of the traditional typica variety at elevations of 5,200 to 6,000 feet.
