Flying Goat Coffee
Peru Cochapampa Fair-Trade
|Roaster Location:||Healdsberg, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Quillabamba region, south-central Peru|
|Review Date:||February 2007|
Blind Assessment: Rather thin aroma, with semi-sweet chocolate hints. In the cup the chocolate turns explicit, crisp and pleasantly cocoaish. The finish is surprisingly rich, with continued cocoa tones and a hint of flowers. The cup generally relaxes and plumps up as it cools.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from the small-holding farmers of the Cochapampa Cooperative at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Flying Goat Coffee is a leading boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those whose taste for chocolate transcends Hershey's to include subtle but distinct variations like this one.
