Allegro Coffee Roasters
Organic Colombia AAA Microlot
|Roaster Location:||Berkeley, California|
|Est. Price:||$12.99/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||June 2015|
Blind Assessment: Crisp, quietly complete, balanced. Hazelnut, fresh-cut fir, cranberry, a hint of oregano in aroma and cup. Rich, round acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a simple, rich finish.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown. Allegro Coffee Roasters is a long-established specialty roaster now a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market. This coffee was roasted at the newish in-store boutique Allegro roastery-café located in Berkeley, California, the second such Allegro in-store roastery to open, following the first in Brooklyn, New York.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of the classic Latin-America cup: nothing flashy, nothing out of balance here, just a roundly and quietly complete cup.
