Colombia Finca La Meseta

0 reviews  Add a review

Colombia is having one of its best years in a long time, with a plentiful harvest, and a special attention to quality.  This bag came in decorated with an impressionist painting of bright flowers and is not entirely "typical" of a Colombia.  We got this direct from the farm through the La Minita company, and the farm is run by Hernan Fernandez, in the Jardin region, on a 5000 foot altitude coffee estate called "Finca La Meseta"   

Colombian coffee beans -- the really good lots -- tend to get lost amongst the millions of bags of ordinary beans, and the small farmers are doing what they can to stand out when they really have a good harvest.

My favorite roast of this is just at verge of 2nd cracks.  It's a smooth full flavored coffee, and although it might pass as "ordinary Colombian" to the average person, you and I will notice what makes this so special.  Undertones of orange creamsicle!  Orange, vanilla, and a hint of cocoa with a creamy mouthfeel, and a sweet dry aftertaste.  Really cool for a Colombia coffee.  If in doubt as to when to let the beans dump, lean towards a slightly lighter roast as opposed to a slightly darker one, to fully enjoy the orange vanilla notes. 

This was a really small microlot, and if you search the web for other roasters who were lucky enough to get a few bags of this, they are selling it for $17 to $22 a pound roasted....something tells me this one's gonna go fast.
