Colombia Dulima is an Excelso EP grade coffee sourced from high altitudes in the Tolima and Huila growing regions. Half of every hand-selected lot is guaranteed screen 17/18 or higher.
The spread of coffee planting throughout Colombia in the early 19th century is attributed to a priest who made coffee planting a penance for his parishioners. It worked. Colombia is among the largest producer of coffee in the world, and was number two behind Brazil for decades. The Tolima growing regions is named after the Tolima district, which was home to Pijaos people before the Spanish arrived. The Pijaos were known among the Spaniards as fierce defenders of their homeland, which they called Dulima.
A great super fresh and clean Colombian, a perfect example of what a Colombian should be. Full bodied, crisp acidity and a very clean strong cup. Great chocolate tones and a slightly dry nutty finish. Lighter roasts will show a little bit of acidity, which some will like but may be a little too floral for fuller roast fans. Medium roasts are very well balanced with just a tiny hint of acidity. Dark roasts are thick and creamy with traditional Colombian smoky, nutty and chocolaty tones.
Very easy to roast – roasts very even and tasty from light to dark. A bit acidic at super light roasts but many will like it light – more traditionally I would go closer to 2nd crack than 1st, much more balanced tones and fuller bodied. Works dark as well but no soft fruit note, full bodied chocolaty and smoky.
