Pitalito Swiss Water Decaf
|Roaster Location:||Kansas City, Missouri|
|Coffee Origin:||San Agustin growing region, Huila Department, southern Colombia|
|Review Date:||July 2006|
Blind Assessment: Roses, milk chocolate and a hint of aromatic wood in the aroma. Crisp and richly delicate in the cup, with continued hints of aromatic wood, spicy rose and a sweet chocolate. The finish is simple but clean and rich.
Notes: Pitalito comes from a highly respected growing area east of the Andes in the southern Colombian Department of Huila, produced by a community of small-holding growers, growers who have benefited from a long-term, supportive relationship with The Roasterie. This coffee was decaffeinated by the "Swiss Water Process" method, which does not involve use of solvents. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that specializes in building ongoing relationships with growers and that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.
