Roaster’s Choice 012508 Colombia Choco El Carmen del Atrato

This micro-lot is from the “state” (department) of Choco in Colombia. Choco is next to the coffee-producing department of Antioquia, in the northern most section, sharing a border with Panama. It also lies on the far eastern boundry where the famed El Carmen lies.

This is an elegant and well-rounded coffee. In the cup it is reminiscent of a Kenyan with traces of layered fruit and black currant, but without the brightness associated with the East African coffees. A clean honey-like sweetness in the finish gives the cup a clean and pleasant reminder of the complexity that can be found in an exceptional micro-lot.
