Flying Goat Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Healdsburg, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Quillabamba region, south-central Peru.|
|Review Date:||March 2004|
Blind Assessment: In the nose distinctly roasty, pungent, but quite sweet and resonantly round-toned. In the cup cleanly burned but still quite sweet, light-bodied but round in impression. Some fruit, perhaps softened by a hint of clean ferment, makes itself felt as the cup cools.
Notes: Produced by the 150 farmers of the Cochapampa cooperative, this coffee is certified organically grown and shade-grown. Flying Goat Coffee is a boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit
Who Should Drink It: An androgynous coffee, roasty but delicately sweet.
