Roasting: We like this coffee best at a medium roast (Full City), though you'll get even more gentle acidity at a light-medium (City+). This coffee can handle going darker into Full City+ but you'll lose some subtle floral flavors and pick up some roasty, bittersweet chocolate notes.
Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing!
Our Review: "This traceable community blend with a vibrant regional profile comes from an association called Grupo Asociativo El Bombo (ASOBOMBO), which has 230 members with small farms in the community of El Bombo in the municipality of Pitalito. Each producer has their own micro-mill where they carefully harvest cherries, depulp, ferment, wash and gently dry the parchment on raised beds. Imagine the harmony between these producers in farm management and post-harvest practices to achieve a clean and consistent blend. But also just enough differences from farm to farm to create a rich complexity of flavors. An export Company called Mastercol provides crucial logistical support for things like warehousing and milling coffee for export to the international market, which provides better income for everyone to reinvest in their farms and strengthen their families’ livelihoods." - Royal Coffee
