Captain's Gold Top 6! This offering from FABICOOP out of Tolima has everything you'd expect from a well-rounded Colombian coffee. It's rich, velvety, sweet and balanced with a gentle brightness that makes for an incredibly drinkable cup. It's got big notes of dark chocolate and cane sugar with a splash of papaya and lime. We also got just a twinge of hibiscus to round out this tasty cup.

Roasting: We like this coffee best at City+ to Full City+ (Light medium to medium-dark), Most roasters will have the best results at Full City (full medium) or between 1st and 2nd crack. Go slightly lighter to emphasize papaya and bring out moreacidity ending the roast at the tail end of 1st crack. Darker roasts ending at the first snaps of 2nd crack will emphasize dark chocolate with a bit more body.

Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing!

Our Review: We've featured a lot of unusual and unique Colombia coffees lately, so we felt like it was high time we paid tribute to a more traditional Colombian profile. You know the one: rich, velvety, chocolatey and balanced. Not too bright, not too sweet. The one that you hand your friends and when you ask them "how is it?" they pause for a moment and say "It's...just darn good coffee!" This regional blend from 89 members of FABICOOP out of Gaitania Tolima is that coffee, and it's the best version of it. I provides a solid and versatile base for a "house" or espresso blend while being imminently delicious as a single origin brew. We noted the usual dark chocolate as well as cane sugar along with a bit of brightness from lime and a touch of well ripened papaya followed by just a hint of hibiscus in the finish.
