Roasting: Start with a Full City (Medium), or just up to the second crack. Like most Colombia coffee, the Sierra Nevada will accept a wide variation in roast profiles and still deliver a great cup. If you can't hear the cracks, then roast until the beans are smooth and medium dark brown with just the first hints of oil. You should get a nice even roast.
Recommendation: For people who enjoy a warm, balanced and clean cup. The creamy body of this coffee makes it particularly comforting, so it's perfect for those cold winter mornings.
Reminder: This coffee is raw. You have to roast it before brewing.
Our Review: Sol Naciente was created in 2008 with the goal of uniting competing producers from the Sierra Nevada region. These producers come from two townships: Siberia and San Pedro which are located in the municipality of Ciénaga. The majority of these producers are recognized victims of armed conflict and they are in a program for land restitution. Now that they have regained their land, they decided to put it to good use and produce high quality organic coffee.
Colombian coffee is always a favorite with many different kinds of coffee drinkers no matter what they're preferences. It's the jack of all trades, master of none. It's full bodied, balanced, drinkable but never boring! This selection is exceptional with a slightly crisp front end and sweet notes of cherry, peach, orange and caramel. This gives it character without having too many competing flavors. Trust us, you'll like this one and so will your friends and family, whether they drown their cup in cream and sugar or prefer to take it black!
