Popayan – Green
|Roaster Location:||Cauca, Colombia|
|Coffee Origin:||Cauca Department, southwestern Colombia. Traditional market name: Popayan.|
|Review Date:||August 1999|
Blind Assessment: A striking one-third of the panelists described the aftertaste of this sweet, clean, fruit-toned coffee as "resonant," a seldom-chosen term. That response may suggest why this coffee scored the second-highest rating in the cupping despite its limited nuance. It displayed impressive dimension, an echoing space around and behind initial sensation.
Notes: A sweet, clean, resonant, fruit-toned coffee with impressive dimension. A private mill coffee exported by Cargill. From a cooperative of fifteen small farms. Partly shade grown from trees of the traditional typica variety at elevations of 5,500 to 6,000 feet.
