LIGHT ROAST - FOR FILTER COFFEE (incl. pourover, plunger, Aeropress, etc.)
This is a single-farm microlot from Gaitania in the Tolima region, and was purchased through a new supplier who shares our passion for directly connecting quality-minded roasters and coffee producers.
Produced by Fildardo Varon, this lot is Yellow Bourbón & Colombia varieties, grown above 1700m above sea level. The processing was meticulous: ripe cherries are picked and pulped the same day, fermented without water for 30 hours, then washed and dried slowly under shade.
In the cup, it’s yet another example of why we love Colombian coffees: big bodied, with dark chocolate and brown sugar, but also nicely balanced acidity which has peach and tropical fruit notes.
