Colombian farmers are really starting to pay attention to quality and discovering that higher quality equals higher prices for their crops.
This excelso Colombia is from the southern part of Narino region, in the Andes mountains on a volcano known as El Azufral. It was one of the highest scoring Narino coffees we saw this season. And it's not going to blow you away with complexity or fruitiness or nuttiness -- it's just normal coffee. But the lack of bitterness, earthiness, or defects...along with the sweetness, full bodied rich flavor and classic Colombia taste -- makes it a coffee that you can offer to anyone and have them enjoy it.
We like it at about the same roast level of how we roast our other Colombia coffees. Full City+, a few seconds into 2nd cracks tends to be our sweet spot, with hints of chocolate and cherry; but you can get away with taking this one a degree or two lighter if you want more of the peach taste. If you want a dark roast Colombia, it can handle that too. However, if you take it too much lighter than full city, you're risking a chance of a raw grassy taste in the coffee.
