A great cup by any measure. Every now and then there comes along a Supremo that really is a hit. Typically Supremos are pooled from many farms in the region thereby the resulting cup suffers from the effect of the "lowest common denominator". Not this time! A shade-grown coffee produced by a small group of farms that has great dimension: vistas of completeness unfold in waves of exhilarating revelation.

Huila is also a Supremo (17/18 screen) coffee and a classic Colombian. The profile is built around deep-toned vanilla-nut flavor with sufficient acidity, not strikingly sweet but sweet enough. The cup has flavors like a mildly spiced tea: apple, cinnamon, muted clove flavors. Look for chocolate flowers dancing on your taste buds - now isn't that a pretty picture?

It has been described as a Kenyan that moved to Colombia. Great balance and yet is rich, slightly spicey, nutty and sweet; the longer it sat in the cup the sweeter it got. Milder and lighter than the other Colombians - lighter body is not a defect by the way, and is a nice cup of coffee for watching the sun go down.

Roast: Full City: the cup can be a bit sour at the light end of city, but definitely holds up to a heavier roast. In fact, this cup is excellent well into the Light French stages.
