Tasting Notes: Caramel sweetness and fruit-forward, with notes of cherry, red apple, and tangerine.
These beans receive special honey-processing to bring out their full potential. This lot from the Nariño region was grown by farmers from the Aponte microregion. It is rare to get a honey processed coffee out of Colombia.
It is nicely sweet and smooth — a “soft” coffee that you can mindlessly sip at all day. This one has all the nice characteristics of a good Colombian coffee; there’s caramel and milk chocolate. But because it was honey-processed their are undertones of fruit; cherry, winey acidity, with some apple, and we roast a little lighter to accentuate some citrus notes. The fruity undertones are subtle but the coffee is sweet and pleasant and the hints of nuance make this a very drinkable coffee.
