A very tasty aggregate lot from a micro region in Huila called Timana. Although some of our past Huila offerings have most likely contained some Timana beans, this straight chop out of Timana is fantastic.
All grown above 4800 feet and consisting of 3 Arabica strains; Castilla, Caturra, Colombia
Coming from the Timaná municipality of South Huila, located in the mountain valley of the Magdalena river between the two main branches of the Colombian Andes. The region provides excellent weather patterns for coffee cultivation.
Ripe cherries are pulped and fermented for 16-24 hours, after which they are carefully dried both in the sun and mechanically until the optimum moisture content is reached.
A very nice super clean Huila cup! A bit higher acidity for a Huila with noticeable citric/floral/fruity tones upfront at the light to medium roast points. Buttery textured and complex; strong semi-sweet traditional walnut/chocolate tones balance out the cup and accentuate the darker you roast. Lighter roasts can see some stronger acidity but gets pretty mellow and smooth at darker roasts. Make sure to match your roast level to your personal preference, a stand up cup from light to dark but don’t roast light if you are not a fan of citric and floral tones.
Easy to roast; a nice medium roast is where these beans will shine. Works at light and/or dark roasts but looses a little balance. Light roast will have much more floral and soft fruit balanced with just hints of dry nutty, dark roasts are much thicker and bittersweet, low acidity and nutty/chocolaty/smoky type profile.
