So what’s the deal with Colombian coffee?
Juan Valdez notwithstanding, I just don’t get it. I’ve tasted some great coffees that claimed to be Colombian. Despite my best efforts, I’ve yet to roast one, though I’ve tried a goodly number of varietals, fincas, and roasts. Today I roasted Colombian Narino Reserva del Patron, a coffee good enough to be brokered by McAlpin’s La Minita operation.
Balanced? Sure. Full-bodied? Okay. Tasty? Nope.
