Coming from farms located in the department of Cauca, Colombia. On average, each producer cultivates their coffee on less than 5 acres of land. Coffee producers use their own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. Expocafé, an exporter dedicated to supporting small producers, collaborates with these producers improving their access to international markets and establishing higher earnings.
Shoot for a medium to borderline dark roast and you are in for a tasty treat. Lower acidity, medium bodied with a sweet edge. A cup almost everyone will love. Hints of soft fruit balanced with the classic Colombian nutty and chocolate tone. A little hint of acidity at the medium roast point really creates a nicely balanced cup with a broad flavor profile. Touching 2nd crack builds some body but is pretty quick to add some smoky and roasty notes; tasty when touching 2nd crack but gets a little edgy and a little bitter too far into 2nd crack.
This bean is very versatile when it comes to roasting; good from light to dark but main recommendation would be in the strong medium ballpark. Be sure to try different roast points for it will greatly vary what flavors are accentuated. Enjoy a brighter morning cup at a City+ Roast or take it into an afternoon/evening coffee by roasting it touching 2nd crack.
