Traditional Washed – Green
La Torcaza Estate
|Review Date:||July 2000|
Blind Assessment: Soft, low-key coffee with a twisty undercurrent of dark vegetative notes: wood or grass at worst; at best spice, tobacco or smoke. I found that, as the cup cooled, these notes sweetened pleasantly toward cocoa and cedar.
