Colombian DeNossA Blend from Memoria Coffee.

colombia coffee blend

First, a big thanks to the folks at Memoria for sending us this coffee to try.

Memoria is a networking company for young professionals, is opening lounges and cafes where their members can meet, work and enjoy Memoria’s own branded coffee…the Colombian DeNossA Blend.

This is a medium roast Colombian blend, so we had some expectations before grinding the beans and making the first cup. That is to say, we expected a smooth coffee, without too many high notes.

As always, we brewed the coffee, let it sit for a couple of minutes and tasted it black, of course. It has a pleasant bouquet, including hits of wood and berries. And yes, this is a smooth coffee. Not too strong, and no harsh peaks of bitterness or sweetness.

The first taste fills the mouth nicely and softly. There are hints of chocolate and berries, and maybe a touch of citrus. The bitterness, mild as it is, comes towards the end and lingers as an aftertaste.

This isn’t a complex, demanding coffee. I don’t see it as being a favorite of the high-brow coffee geeks. Nor will it fit the bill for people who want a hard-hitting coffee to wake them up first thing in the morning.

But it is a great coffee to enjoy while sitting together with friends, reading a good book, or enjoying a coffee moment alone in the middle of the day.

We like it.
