Colombia Tolima Organic
This organic coffee from the Tolima region of Colombia features a medium body with sweet notes of cherry, dark chocolate and honey with an almond finish.
Arrival Date: October 9th, 2020
Acidity & Brightness: Moderately bright and sweet
Balance & Finish: Extremely balanced, smooth and lingering nutty finish
Body & Texture: Medium to full bodied, rich, creamy texture
Flavors: Cherry, cocoa powder and caramel
Grade: Excelso - Medium large
Processing: Fully washed, hand picked, sun-dried
Roasting: We like this coffee best at a medium roast (Full City), though you'll get even more of the sweet notes at a light-medium (City+). This coffee can handle going darker, but much past Full City + and you'll lose a lot of the subtle notes and sweetness.
Recommendation: This coffee is smooth and easy drinking. Great as a classy after dinner cup or for folks who like to be awoken by a more gentle cup of joe.
Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing!
