Colombia Huila San Agustin
Warning: Last items in stock!
This is an offering from a small co-op in the Huila region by about 800 farmers. The coffee is grown at 3000-4000 foot altitude under full shade. Huila is generally my favorite region of coffee out of Colombia, and this one does not disappoint.
Colombian coffee beans -- the really good lots -- tend to get lost among 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. This is an example of a Colombian coffee that is far above average quality.
My favorite roast of this is just at verge of 2nd cracks -- don't get into 2nd cracks or it will get bitter and lose its sweetness. It has a molasses sweetness and a buttery mouthfeel, reminds me of taffy. Sweet, not bitter. Pleasant in every way. Add to the fact that the coffee bushes are surrounded by the ancient forest of the Andean Mountain range, and it's the most special mug of Colombia we've seen in a while. We've just been drinking it as coffee, but it seems to work nicely in espresso as well as any other coffee brewing method. You can also roast it dark (45 seconds of 2nd cracks) to get a nice french roast that you can add cream to and taste like coffee without it being overly burnt tasting.
