Organic Bolivian Coffee, Cumbre Supremo, New England Light Roast
|Roaster Location:||West Newberry, Massachusetts|
|Review Date:||February 2007|
Superb, richly sweet-toned aroma: semi-sweet chocolate with hints of raisins and cedar. In the cup rather lean-bodied, delicate, with crisp, very distinct cocoa-chocolate notes nuanced by hints of lemon, caramel, raisin.
Caf? Valverde is the U.S.-based roasting partner of Invalsa Coffee, a Bolivian export/import company focused on identifying, supporting and exporting the best coffees from Bolivian small-holding farmers. From an industry-wide perspective, by the way, this coffee does not qualify as a light roast, but comes in at the darkish end of medium. Nevertheless, it is an appropriate and tactful roast that develops this coffee's attractive cocoa-chocolate character. Visit
