Colombian Bucaramanga Supremo

(1 customer review)

$6.85

A great super fresh classic Colombian! Hints of acidity and soft fruit tones at lighter roasts but fuller bodied with darker tones, at darker roasts. This cup shows the classic spirit of Colombian coffee. Smooth and clean, nutty with bakers chocolate as the dominate the cup but can still catch floral and soft fruit crispness at the lighter roasts. Medium roasts are a great starting spot, accentuates the smoothness, great mix of nutty and chocolaty tones with little jazzy spice note, easy to drink with a sweeter edge. Darker roasts turn a bit more semi-sweet with a stronger bakers chocolate edge and some complimenting smoky/roasty notes, a touch of nuttiness mostly in the aftertaste.

Description

In Colombia the vast majority of coffee is cultivated, harvested and processed on small family owned farms. While these producers are their own architects, designing farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit their environment, they also need strong alliances to bring their coffee to the international market and earn fair prices. To support this system of small farm production, Colombia established the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros de Colombia (FNC) to organize and support a complex network of larger regional coffee cooperatives.

These cooperatives provide producers with valuable logistical support like centralized warehouses to store dried parchment and dry mills where the coffee is prepared for export according to size and quality.

This is a decent and fresh strictly large bean screen “Supremo” from the state of Burcaramanga. Being an aggregate small holder coffee, the cup really gives the terroir of Colombia.

Tasting Notes:
Best from a medium to dark roast; big bodied, low acidity with stronger more toasted nutty/chocolaty character. Smooth and rich cup, on the stronger, semi-sweet side of Colombian coffees. Classically toned as some would say.  If you touch or go into second crack, one does get some complimenting roasty and smoky tones that turn the cup more chocolaty than nutty. Before 2nd crack, more nutty than chocolaty.

Roasting Notes: 
An easy to roast coffee good from a medium roast to as dark as you want to go. Light roasts come off a little grassy and under developed but as you creep towards a medium roast you get very nice classic Colombian toasted walnut and spice with a slightly chocolaty finish.

    Just ordered another 10lbs. This has become my new favorite daily drinker. Roasted to just the first hint of second crack is my preference. Great price on a great coffee!
