Blind Assessment: Very sweet-toned but crisp, with blackberry, cedar, walnut, and a rounding, backgrounded milk chocolate in aroma and cup. Quietly balanced acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. A hint of ripe lemon complicates a smooth, clean finish.

Notes: Impeccably prepared coffee from the Herrera farm on the eastern slopes of the Western Cordillera, Colombia. This coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.

Who Should Drink It: Big, complete and balanced, a classic Colombia.
